“We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” – Prince. So began the wedding day of Heather and Christian. The Milestone Boerne was a sea of purple hues because, well, purple is just awesome. Purple enhances creativity, it calms stress – the perfect color for the perfect couple for the perfect wedding day.

Christian proposed to Heather on his family’s property. While strolling together, he stopped under a persimmon tree and reminisced about their years together and expressed his hopes for their future. He knelt on one knee, pulled out an engagement ring, and proposed. “No way," said Heather, before actually saying yes. From this moment, everything about the wedding revolved around Heather’s favorite colors – shades of purple and gold.

Purple is a rarity in nature. Because of it’s combination of red and blue, purple is neither warm nor cool, and yet it is both warm and cool. With the gold accents sprinkled throughout, Heather and Christian’s purple color palette was beautifully displayed – from the table décor, to the bridesmaid’s dresses – it exuded warmth and joy, something Heather wanted reflected for her guests.

Their day was filled with laughter, tears, and joy. Christian shed a tear seeing Heather in her dress. Heather giggled at Christian for tearing up. For Heather, the best decision she made was getting ready with just her mother and doing a first-look with her father. “I was so happy we did this because I spent so few minutes with them throughout the day. And having a private, final dance. It was an intimate way to wind down our night, and soak it all in.”

 You know, everything is better in purple!
