Donna and Oleg wanted to have fun at their wedding, and they did just that--from cracking jokes on the programs to letting guests pick their seat with apple escort cards. They let their outdoor venue rely on its own beauty and just added pops of purple and gold. Their main goal was to be classic, clean and chic.

Mercury glass votive holders were filled with hydrangeas and roses.
The groom's bow tie matched the bridesmaids' dresses, and the groomsmen wore suspenders with purple ties.
The bride made the soap favors herself since she works as a perfumer. She tied them with twine and handmade thank you labels and packaged them in small crates.
The couple decorated their reception with three long tables and three different centerpieces to add dimension.
Guests literally picked their seat from baskets of moss filled with apples labeled with paper tags telling guests which table to go to.
The programs, doubling as fans, were intended to make guests laugh and start the wedding off on a fun note. For example, Ring bearer enters (if we are lucky, no seriously, he probably won't make it, he was hittin' the juice bottle pretty hard last night).
The bride let her five bridesmaids choose their own dresses as long as it was floor length and purple.
The bridesmaids carried succulents, orchids and roses.
Donna and Oleg had an open bar, but to make things easier for the guests, they set up beer in a canoe decorated with flowers and lit by candles at night.
The newlyweds had a simple three-tiered lemon cake with raspberry filling and buttercream icing and decorated with roses.
The couple created a pick your seat escort card display with baskets of apples and separated guest's names alphabetically.
Silver candelabras were filled with white hydrangeas and roses.
The couple chose white table linens and added pops of color with gold chargers to compliment the mercury glass votives.
The couple wrote the menu on a large chalkboard, and placed a guest libs game on the chargers for guests to play while waiting.
The couple incorporated their accent color, purple, into the invitation suite to tie everything together.
The bridal bouquet consisted of neutral-toned garden roses and scabiosas.
The bride loved her art deco-feel shoes decorated with pear-shaped jewels.
Knowing the bride loves pear-shaped diamonds, the groom designed and crafted all the rings himself.
The programs were displayed on a cottage side table with books tied together with twine telling guests to take one.
The ceremony was at The Inn at Fernbrook Farms in the Stone Cottage Garden, which provided a lilac-covered trellis backdrop.
Guests signed corks that the couple saved during their period of engagement and dropped them into a shadowbox the bride bought and engraved with her wedding date. Instructions for how to work the sign in was displayed on a vintage typewriter.
