The Bride: Leigh Rabalais, 29, English teacher
The Groom: Jacob Corbell, 34, 15th judicial court rehabilitating alcohol and drug addicted youth
The Date: November 12

Since purple is Leigh's favorite color the couple chose purple, mint and ivory for the wedding colors palette with hues of purple ranging from eggplant to lavender.
