A Simple Purple Wedding at Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, Maryland

Simplicity can be elegant, and that's exactly what it was at the wedding of Kate Fatta (33 and in international development) and Todd Moreland (36 and an art director). With a color palette of eggplant, lavender and ivory, they had a pretty and intimate wedding at Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, Maryland, a historic home and property that houses the Audubon Naturalist Society. The celebration was planned by Kelley Cannon Events. Small, natural flower arrangements of chrysanthemums, dahlias, lavender and wildflowers decorated the dining tables at the tented reception, and Kate carried a bouquet of chrysanthemums, lavender and greens. The stylized paper goods were created by the groom himself, and included Mad Libs RSVP cards, where guests could suggest songs for the dance floor. "We wanted guests to know early on that this was going to be a party," Kate says. Kate wore a beautiful lace gown on her wedding day, which she paired with a fascinator veil. Todd wore a handsome gray suit with a deep purple tie. Kate and Todd's photographer from Love Life Images captured every detail at their wedding.
