A Modern Purple Wedding at Turf Valley in Ellicott City, Maryland

Rachel Golberg (28 and a pediatric nurse) and Shaun Elhai (29 and a real estate agent) wanted their wedding to sparkle. All of their wedding details incorporated a dash of glitter and shine, especially the flower arrangements. Rachel's ivory bouquet was closed with a silver brooch on its ribbon wrap. The ceremony aisle was lined with vases of floating orchids and strand of rhinestones. At the reception, tall centerpieces with ivory and purple roses and branches featured rhinestone ribbon embellishments at their base. Even Shaun's classic white rose boutonniere sparkled! Rachel and Shaun's purple color palette was the perfect complement to the subtle shimmer in their decor. The bridesmaids wore bold floor-length dresses in aubergine chiffon and carried purple bouquets. The ballroom at Turf Valley, where their wedding took place, was illuminated by purple uplighting. And for the traditional Jewish ceremony, Rachel and Shaun provided their guests with purple yarmulkes to coordinate with the decor. Our favorite detail from the day? The sweetheart table, which was covered in a sparkly silver tablecloth and topped with a wooden sign that Rachel and Shaun made themselves and read, "at last." Anna Grace Photography was there to capture all the details!
