Summer Wedding Theme: Violet Succulent

Summer Wedding Theme: Violet Succulent


Summer – the time to embrace all things bright and beautiful. Not only do I like summer for the warm, sunshine days but also for the vivid shades that this season brings. You are scared of vivid colours? Don’t be! With a few metallic touches and the right accessories, you can easily combine them to create a magnificent effect. And here I choose violet succulent, not just only there is violet colour in such a beautiful and unique plant like succulent but also the green – lively colour, an added value for your wedding theme.


In the meaning of color, violet represents the future, the imagination and dreams, while spiritually calming the emotions. It contains the energy and strength of red with the spirituality and integrity of blue. This is the union of body and soul creating a balance between our physical and our spiritual energies. They inspire and enhance psychic ability and spiritual enlightenment, while, at the same time, keeping us grounded.

Succulent – understated ~  enduring ~ timeless love

Succulents are a range of house plants that are generally available all year round. Succulents are currently popular at weddings and can be used at a variety of different styles of wedding. With over 50 different species these versatile plants look delicate with their waxy looking leaves, but are tough enough to survive and even root without any water.

An oak canopied path leads to a beautiful, grass ceremony area, where large oak trees and a beautiful Pergola Deck set the stage. The nearby reception patio, surrounded by enormous live oak trees, romantic twinkle lights, and covered by the stars, creates the perfect atmosphere as night falls. A second ceremony site is truly tucked into the woods, completely surrounded and covered by a canopy of perfectly placed trees among the rolling hills. This site will take your breath away, wow your guests, and make for extraordinary pictures. In fact, no matter which ceremony site you choose, photo opportunities can be found at each turn on the 25 acre grounds.
