A Purple Wedding with a Touch of Sparkle in Durham, NC

Two of the most popular wedding trends are purple color schemes and "blinged" out decor, and today's feature wedding perfectly incorporates both. Chaunte Rowland and Kendrick Fullard teamed up with their planner, Savoir-Faire Signature Events, to go full out glamour for their spring nuptials. Shades of purple, ranging from lavender to violet were beautifully incorporated in everything from the bridesmaids' dresses, to the up-lighting, to the gorgeous flower arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, and lisianthus.  Chaunte was ravishingly beautiful in a form fitting trumpet gown that featured a  Swarovski crystal, "blinged out" sweetheart neckline. Kendrick, was also a showstopper in his custom black tuxedo jacket overlaid with intricate silver patterns.  Silver was the couple's accent color, and silver sequinned table linens and charvari chairs, brought a touch of bling and sparkle to the couple's reception space.  The whole night was a dream for this couple; however, Chaunte shares, the most memorable moment for her was, "Witnessing my family and friends being so happy at our celebration. Seeing my now husband earlier that day at breakfast and looking at him like wow we're getting married, and having him look so at peace with his choice, was memorable." ArtbyAsh Photography  captured all of the Fullard's sentimental moments and their amazing wedding decor.
