A Purple Paris-Inspired Wedding at Weston Hills Country Club in Weston, Florida

Cassandra Diaz (24 and a group specialist at Disney) and Josh Ceballos (24 and in vacation planning at Disney) turned their purple wedding into a Pari

Cassandra Diaz (24 and a group specialist at Disney) and Josh Ceballos (24 and in vacation planning at Disney) turned their purple wedding into a Parisian-esque celebration complete with an Eiffel Tower-topped wedding cake and vintage-style photo frames. “After visiting Paris in the summer of 2010, we felt such a connection with the city and the beauty of the Eiffel Tower,” Cassandra says. "So we chose Paris as our theme.” The couple started their day in an outdoor ceremony at Weston Hills Country Club filled with eye-catching purple blooms. Beautiful Kreations, the couple’s florist, lined the aisle with tall arrangements of blue hydrangeas and purple roses, the same flowers that accented their wedding arch. Once Cassandra and Josh completed a matching unity-sand ceremony tradition, their wedding continued with a bright reception designed by Partyologists. Tall hydrangea centerpieces with floating pink orchids were set on each table as Eiffel Tower-accented menus and textured silver linens served as accents. Another standout detail was their wedding cake. Displayed under purple uplighting, the four-tier confection with silver fondant in between tiers of purple ombre ruffles was baked by Edible Creations Cakes. The team even baked a surprise Xbox groom’s cake for Josh. After dessert, Cassandra, Josh and their guests ended the night dancing to M&N DJ Services. Emily Katharine Photography captured these details and much more, below. Cassandra shares a tip: “Communication is key. Make sure all the people involved in the planning process are filled in on new details so everyone is on the same page.”

Beautiful Kreations, the couple’s florist, designed a Cassandra's bright bouquet, which matched the couple's Parisian theme and the rest of their floral accents. She carried an arrangement of mauve and blush roses, fuchsia orchids and blue hydrangeas with a line of fun purple alstroemerias tucked into the center. Each bloom was wrapped with an ivory ribbon to match her dress.
Cassandra and Josh took their color palette a step further in their ceremony. Beautiful Kreations lined the aisle with lush purple and blue floral arrangements. At their wedding arch, the couple mixed fun purple and indigo sand in a unity-sand tradition.
Josh incorporated the couple's purple wedding color and mauve accent hue in his wedding-day look. He paired his gray suit from Men's Wearhouse with a mauve rose and pink hypericum berry boutonniere. He also donned a triple pocket square in purple, indigo and mauve.
Cassandra, Josh and their florist,  Beautiful Kreations, went all out on the ceremony decor. Bunches of blue hydrangeas, purple calla lilies and purple roses were placed atop the couple’s wedding arch while similar blooms topped floating pink cymbidium orchids in cylinder vases along the aisle. For an added purple touch, flower petals in the same hues accented their white aisle runner.
Cassandra's bridal party brought their purple color palette to new heights with classic, long halter dresses in plum and lilac from David's Bridal. To complement each gown, Beautiful Kreations designed sweet bouquets of blue hydrangeas and mauve roses. Similar blooms were also placed in their updo hairstyles.
Even Cassandra and Josh's guest book was met with a little Eiffel Tower lamp. The couple asked each of their 97 guests to sign a personalized photo album with metallic markers as family wedding photos surrounded the display in matching antique-style frames.
Cassandra and Josh added a personal touch to their reception with each table number. Surrounded by a purple border to match their color scheme, each accent included a few family photos of the couple. As friends and family surrounded the table, this type of decoration can also serve as a point of conversation among guests.
A few months after Cassandra and Josh became engaged, the bride and her bridesmaids went to David's Bridal in search of her dress. After trying on five other dresses, she knew this was the one. She chose a classic mermaid-style wedding dress covered in lace detailing. A plum rosette sash finished the look with their wedding color.
Basked in amber, pink or purple uplighting, each family-style table was met with a lush purple centerpiece designed by Beautiful Kreations, the couple’s florist. Each tall floating orchid was matched with mauve and pink roses, pink orchids, purple calla lilies and blue hydrangeas stop a cylinder vase. Similar arrangements were also used as the couple's ceremony decor.

Each of the confection's four tiers alternated between classic silver fondant and a fun, ruffled ombre detailing in purple. The cake topper also added a personal touch with an Eiffel Tower that complemented the couple's trip to Paris in 2010.
