A Purple Garden Wedding at Art and History Museums Maitland in Maitland, Florida
Rebekah Updike (30 and a nanny) and Zachary Pugh (33 and a carpenter) outfitted their intimate garden wedding in a rich color scheme of amethyst and aubergine with glam accents of antique gold. Rebekah says her ball gown’s layers of soft ivory organza took her breath away. The Grecian-inspired bridesmaid dresses were reminiscent of mythological garden nymphs. “We purposely chose a venue that could only host a smaller wedding,” the bride says. “I wanted to be able to enjoy every single person who was there.” After a ceremony in the stone chapel, the newlyweds celebrated with a dinner of red-wine-braised short ribs and a salted caramel wedding cake. “I was beyond happy,” Rebekah says.
