Wedding Flowers: Katie and Andy's Purple and Green Ceremony and Reception

As August comes to a close and I'm looking back on the weddings of the summer, purple really stands out as one of the prominent color trends of the season.  From the deepest eggplants and violets, to the softer lavenders to lilacs, purple has been the color of choice for many brides this year.  If you're looking for a color to compliment purple, green is an excellent choice.  Green provides a nice contrast to all shades of purple, and keeps everything looking fresh and lively. 

Last weekend we had the pleasure of creating beautiful floral arrangements for Katie and Andy's wedding (congratulations, you two!) in the striking combination of deep purple and vibrant green. Here's some pictures from the ceremony and reception:
