It was elegance all the way for Jessica & Jason's stunning wedding on Lake George. Held at The Sagamore, the couple's nuptials were a heavenly combination of sophistication & sweet moments.

A purple color palette set the tone for Jessica & Jason's regal celebration. Lilac shades lit up the walls of the reception while glitzy centerpieces glittered against the gorgeous flower arrangements by Fleurtacious Designs. Gunmetal bridesmaid dresses added the perfect punchy contrast to the purple-hued decor.
