Charming Shades of Purple at Wadley Farms

The Story: This fairytale-inspired wedding in Utah was centred around a stunning purple palette. Full of charm, this shoot hosted and styled by Heather Benge of Styled Shoots Across America is for those romantics at heart. With mesmerising grounds, a ceremony next to a vineyard and dinner inside a castle, this luxe celebration has it all! 

The Location: The picturesque Wadley Farms. This working family-owned farm nestled at the base of Mount Timpanogos has been in operation for over 150 years. This gorgeous property boasts multiple venues including a grand castle (featuring a great hall with arched beams, a large fireplace, and two grand staircases), two historical buildings, and 23 acres of gardens, vineyards and orchards. 

The Vibe: Fairly traditional – this classic look appeals to those who want a farm setting, white dress and elegant touches of purple.

The Details: The ceremony was set up outside in a courtyard with a floral adorned rectangular arch. The lavish floral arrangements consisted of varying shades of purple complemented by lush greenery. The eye-catching hand-tied bouquet stood out with its brightly coloured red, plum and blue accents. The reception area was soaked in shades of lavender, from the tablecloth to the accents on the four-tiered wedding cake. All the luxurious lettering details on the place settings included purple script fonts.

Tips & Highlights:

  • The classic white china plates were complemented with timeless clear champagne flutes and camilla purple goblets. 
  • The unique four tiered wedding cake used varying floral textures which tied nicely into the fairytale theme. Purple and blue floral edible accents added a whimsical look.
  • Add dried branches and greenery to your fresh floral centrepieces and arrangements for an enchanted forest look.
