Moody Dark Purple Wedding Inspiration

moody dark purple inspiration

Don’t you think purple is an under-appreciated wedding color?! It’s such a rich + versatile hue that can really add so much beauty + dimension to your tablescapes + wedding decor. The team at Esoteric Events agrees and decided to design a beautiful shoot, highlighting this pretty shade, and to give you all some unique inspiration for your reception tables!

The modern, rustic environment, staged under a vine-covered trellis from Archive Rentals, featured dynamic florals by Krista Jon in moody purple, cream + blush tones. Sounds like a winning color palette for late summer + early fall celebrations, don’t you think? Let’s check out the lovely images by Samuel Lippke

Love that the team used wisteria-colored candlesticks, too! Just another great way to boost the moody dark purple palette.

  1. Love the moodiness of this shoot – Great wedding photography!

  2. Absolutely gorg – makes me wish my wedding was a bit later in the summer!

  3. I love the look and feel of this wedding. It is really dark and romantic but manages to carry a mix of classic and modern touches. If I were to design wedding invitations for this type of wedding i would definitely start with a dark base with bold punches of colour keeping the design elegant but bold.

  4. although i like bright color more,this dark setting still takes my breath away!

  5. Truly magical inspiration! Love the color match of every detail. Beautiful shoot!
