A Whimsical, Purple Wedding at the Ashford Estate in Allentown, New Jersey

Classy and elegant with whimsy is how Anne Lin (36 and in finance) and Michael Treadow (30 and in finance) describe their wedding at the Ashford Estate in Allentown, New Jersey. With a navy and lavender color scheme, the couple highlighted the whismy of the estate with plenty of soft, natural light and accented the venue's lush, green lawns with ivy, inspired by the groom's time at Princeton University.  The ceremony at Ashford Estate's refined yet rustic barn included an aisle of lavender rose petals, while Anne's bridesmaids carried bouquets popping with purple blooms. Before the reception, the newlyweds moved inside to an elegant lounge, where they performed the traditional Chinese tea ceremony, before inviting guests to the ballroom for an Asian-inspired feast. One special touch? The couple donated to the American Cancer Society in honor of Anne's father as part of each guest's favor. —Allie Volpe
