A Purple Beach Wedding Along the Coast of Half Moon Bay, California

You know a wedding is going to be a good one when today's couple {Nicole and Danny} says the "main goal for our wedding was for everyone to have a great time". Even the wet gray skies and a pesky garden cat couldn't frazzle the bride on her wedding day. This is such a wonderful reminder as we kick off another week. You're marrying your love, with family and friends with you and as they always say, everything else is just the icing on the cake {whether planned or not}. One of the super sweet moments of the wedding was when Nicole surprised Danny with his father's 25th anniversary wedding band during the ring exchange. This was a very special gift as Danny's father had passed away 10 years earlier and his mom gave her blessing to give it to him. And, the purple color for the wedding? It's Nicole's favorite color.

Purple Weddings with Feathers and Pearls : Inspiration Board

This is just a small inspiration board I've put together based on my pinterest board by the same name. I have so much yummy purple goodness in this board I couldn't include it all here {unless there was to be lots of scrolling LOL}. As many of you know, I just LOVE purple. So this board started coming together as soon as I saw the purple feather fascinator from Emici Bridal and it just kept growing and growing. What is your favorite element? {see the entire purple board on pinterest here}

Michele, a recent bride, gifted all 12 of her groomsmen with Stance socks as part of their gift for her wedding.
