Real Wedding Inspiration: A Rustic Purple Wedding

Pretty purple was mixed with rustic textures for a unique wedding style.

The Bride Becky Horner, 25
The Groom Shaun Curtis, 30
The Date June 25

Becky and Shaun describe their wedding style as vintage-chic with a little homegrown charm. Shades of lavender, green, fawn and ivory complemented the rustic, antique details of the day.

Becky embraced a natural, Bohemian look and wore her hair half-up, held with braids and accented with roses and lavender.

An elegant swirl design was paired with a tree motif on the letterpress invitations, complementing the wedding’s vintage theme.

Vintage wooden boxes held the ceremony programs and cones of flower petals for tossing during the recessional.

Rolled up pages from an English poetry book held freeze-dried flower petals for guests to toss.

The aisle was lined with Mason jars of purple flowers hanging from shepherd’s hooks.

The couple loves both history and nature, so this charming old-world venue was a natural choice both for its historic appearance and picturesque mountain backdrop.

Shaun, an amateur bottle digger, provided the unique vintage glassware for the centrepieces—he dug each and every piece out of the ground.

Coffee-stained card stock was stamped with the table number and the same tree motif from the invitations.

Mason jars, wrapped in tiers of lace and filled with lavender, added a romantic touch to the tables.

A co-worker handpicked strawberries to make jam for the favours. A square of lace tied with ribbon added vintage flair to the jars.
