Real Wedding – Purple Poppy at State Club
Tis the season to be married! Bursting with bright red roses, poinsettias, fresh greenery and holly provided by Purple Poppy, this Raleigh couple’s December wedding was nothing short of an elegant holiday celebration.
The bride looked romantic and chic in a long sleeved tulle ballgown with lace overlay and a classic birdcage veil. Like the bride, the bridesmaids wore an elegant fur shrug over their red satin ballgowns. The groom brought out the beautiful color of the roses and poinsettias in his red vest under his gray suit.
For the reception, tables were topped with bountiful arrangements of fresh greenery and bright red holly to keep with the rich holiday aesthetic. Accompanied by gold accents and the light of small votives, even the table settings were romantic!
The couples’ Raleigh roots were not to be forgotten either, as their extravagant four-tiered wedding cake displayed Mr. and Mrs. Wuf amongst stunning red roses.
After dinner and cake, guests hit the floor to dance the night away. It was the perfect ending to such a romantic day!
