Michael + Emily’s Inspirational Purple Wedding

Talk about a super nifty way to meet your spouse – Emily and Michael met white water rafting. Michael was an instructor on the New River in West Virginia, and when they were settling on a place to get married they selected the Confluence Resort – right at the junction of New River and Gauley River.

This is where I swoon. ::sigh:: I just think it’s so romantic to return to the place where your relationship began to pledge your lives and love to one another with your family and friends.

There are also horses! And a dog! And some of the most adorable flower girls I’ve ever seen.

Described by their photographer as “amazing, resourceful, earthy and adventurous,” Emily and Michael were the creative force behind all the details of their wedding day. The decor, including flowers, signs, and memory table were made by the couple. They also crafted the welcome bags for their guests and gorgeous wooden ring boxes for their ceremony.
