Weddings that have a cohesive color scheme are always refreshing to see.  A purple (or aubergine if you want to get technical) with light gray color is a smashing combination. Even if the colors aren’t exact, you can still use décor items in the same shades for a stunning effect, which is a huge added bonus and less stress.  

This fab wedding was captured by Pepper Nix Photography. To see more of her wonderful work check out a second La Caille wedding, and a wedding at a ski resort

Purple and Light Gray Wedding at La Caille ~ Bride’s Comments

Why did you pick that location for your ceremony?

“My now husband actually proposed to me at La Caille, so that was part of the reason.  Honestly though, it’s just the prettiest venue in town and it is pretty hard to beat the scenery and landscaping surrounding the venue.”

What was the best piece of wedding advice you got?

“A marriage isn’t 50/50 its 100/100.”

Describe your bridal attire?

“The dress I wore was designed by Cosmobella.  For my bridesmaids we actually ordered the dresses online from Tully and Chantilly, which is a company in Chin.   I was nervous but they turned out great and the quality was even better. The neat thing is that you can pick any color for about 50 different styles of dresses and they make them to the girl’s exact measurements.”

Describe your groom’s attire?

“He bought his suit from KOHLS. Mark Anthony has a great clothing line that is for slim fit. He then rented the vest, shirt and tie from Tuxedo Junction.”

Did you do a first look before the ceremony?

“Yes, we did and I am really glad that we did. It was a chance to get most of the tears and jitters out before being in public. It was great to take some pictures and capture that first moment with each other.”

What was your favorite ceremony memory?

“When the groom tried to put my ring on during the ring exchange and it wouldn’t go on.  My hand was so hot and sweaty and the just kept turning  and turning. I finally had to push it on myself.   This made for a good laugh for everyone watching. But on a more serious note, the minute he choked up during his vows is when I realize how much he loves me and how he meant every single word.”

Where did you get the inspiration for your color palette and design?

“I love eggplant purple (Aubergine to be exact) and light gray.”

Anything you wish you hadn’t worried about?

“Yes, the guests. Worrying for a week about the numbers and who would show and who wouldn’t was stressful. At the end of the day there will always be people who RSVP and don’t show up and vice versa. It will all happen as it’s supposed to. But boo on those that stand you up!”

Your favorite moment of the day?

“The dance with my dad was and will forever be a moment I cherish. He had a friend sing a song live called I loved her first. If you haven’t heard it, you should and be prepared to bawl like a baby.”
