A Modern Purple Wedding at the Boca Beach Club in Boca Raton, Florida

When it came to planning their wedding, Ashley Fenton (28 and a graphic designer) and Misha Samson (36 and a professional DJ) opted for chic, contemporary aesthetic that perfectly captured their fun-loving personalities and sense of style. With Ashley’s background in design and the help of Boca By Design and Alicia Creates, Inc., the couple was in good hands.

Located right on the beach, the Boca Beach Resort offered a breathtaking setting for the evening to unfold, starting with a ceremony overlooking the sparkling waters of the Atlantic. “This is a Waldorf Astoria property that is private to the public and located right on the beach,” says Ashley. “It was the perfect venue for us, as we prefer more of a modern look, as opposed to your typical beach resort.”

After witnessing Ashley and Misha’s “I dos,” guests moved inside for cocktail hour and the reception, where they were treated to signature sips and a spread of unforgettable eats. The couple transformed the ballroom into a technicolor dream, decorating the tables with brilliant purple bouquets, vintage glass accents and flickering candlelight. The head table was backed by an eye-catching wall dotted with paper fans in a gradient of purple hues and an ombre photo booth backdrop provided guests with the perfect spot to strike a pose.

“The whole wedding was magical. It was a very friendly and fun time, from great speeches to a relaxing dinner and an open bar that went all night long,” says Ashley. “Everyone was dancing until the early morning, and we made sure that everyone was well taken care of, since they flew in from all over the world.”
