For whatever reasons, Monday morning get a bad rap but we are here to make sure your week starts off on the right foot. And I can’t think of a better way to do so than with this country club wedding in Virginia. Joslyn and John’s traditional affair is jam packed with pops of pretty inspiration and purple decor. Photography by Marirosa was behind the lens to capture every sweet moment that you’ll be cozying up to all morning long. Happy Monday, darlings!
From Joslyn: Our wedding theme originated with deciding on a color palette. We decided to go with purple and yellow because they are our college colors (UAlbany), and that is where we met. From there, we decided to go with a romantic, soft theme.
My favorite personal touch of our wedding was during our ceremony. We had our mothers involved in a “tying of the knot” segment. Since my husband is Irish, we found that in their culture they participated in literally tying a knot together during the marriage ceremony to symbolize unity. We had our mothers come forward and tie two purple ribbon together to symbolize the joining of the two families. From there, our officiant used that ribbon to tie mine and my husband’s hands together to symbolize we are now one.
After we were announced husband and wife, we walked down the aisle and once we reached the end, my husband stopped me and pulled me in for a kiss and said “you are so beautiful.” I felt like the luckiest woman in the world!
