A Purple Wedding at La Massaria at Bella Vista, in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania

Sarah Luchansky (23 and a food-safety coordinator) and Matthew Sholly (23 and an IT specialist) put a whimsical twist on their formal purple wedding with personalized details, fun hydrangea centerpieces and an eye-catching lighting design. Josiah and Steph Photography captured each moment of the day, which began with a traditional religious ceremony and ended in a fun reception under pink uplighting at La Massaria at Bella Vista. “The staff at La Massaria could not have been more helpful and on point,” Sarah says. "They had everything under control, from the start of our day to the very end.” One fun detail at the reception was Sarah and Matt’s centerpieces. The team at Chantilly Floral Boutique mixed tall and low whimsical arrangements of pink and purple hydrangeas with two forms of branches. They were just the right touch against the couple’s all-white linens and the room's exposed-brick walls. Sarah and Matt's florist also designed classic arrangements for the ceremony. Sarah and her bridesmaids carried white bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, peonies and stock flowers. Yellow roses and white tulips were also used to distinguish the bridesmaid bouquets. Sarah and Matt made their wedding that much more personal with a few smaller accents. Each of their 80 guests was given a custom pizza-cutter wedding favor to complement Matt’s favorite food and a DIY escort card made from hockey pucks. The couple also had a custom candy bar filled with their favorite treats at the reception. For future couples, Sarah shares a tip: “Don't stress out about the details. Just enjoy yourself and the big day.”
