An Elegant Purple and Green Wedding with the Groomsmen in Vans and Bridesmaids with Hello Kitty Slippers

Today's featured wedding has a little something for everyone. Purple and green decor, lots of DIYed details, custom footwear, and even a Best Lady in the wedding party. Shawn and Heidi planned an amazing wedding with so many sweet personal touches and little details that make you go “Ooooh”. My favorite are the table numbers and table signs made from wine corks!

From the photographer Ashley Paige Photography, "Shawn and Heidi Twomey married on September 14, 2013 in Walnut Creek,
Califonia. Shawn and Heidi met about four years ago through OkCupid. Heidi
had dabbled in online dating for about a year with no success when she
got an email from Shawn. Heidi was the first date Shawn went on through
the online dating service and needless to say the only one! After three
years dating, Shawn proposed to Heidi on a trip to Hawaii to visit what
was his mother's favorite place in the world, Waimea Canyon. His
mother's ashes had been scattered at the same spot after a battle
with ALS. Although Heidi never got to meet Shawn's mom, she felt that
she was present in a very special way that nobody else could be and she
will remember that moment forever."

"They wanted their wedding to be elegant but also fun and down-to-earth.
The guys all wore purple Vans and purple ties with gray suits to match
the girls. The bridesmaids wore bright purple dresses and
each girl wore a slightly different style dress.

Their wedding was at the beautiful outdoor garden at Heather Farms in
Walnut Creek. The roses were in full bloom which added a extra touch of
elegance to see Heidi and her father walking down the aisle through the
roses."

"A lot of the details and decorations from the wedding were DIY. The
bride and her friends made all the table displays and the table numbers
were recycled wine corks. Heidi's mother and aunt made all
the bouquets and flower arrangements (they went to the Oakland flower
mart). Heidi's bouquet was
so elegant, simple, and she personalized it by attaching her
Grandma's vintage hankerchief to it.

Instead of a big traditional wedding cake they opted for cupcake towers!
Each cupcake was topped with a edible mini bride and groom and wrapped
in white paper cupcake holders. Their wedding was one of the most fun weddings I've had the honor of
photographing in a long time! One of my favorite photos is the one of
Heidi's Grandma wearing her sunglasses on the dance floor getting down
to "I Wear my Sunglasses at Night" by Corey Hart."
