I was recently looking up pictures of flowers for another project and have fallen in love with dark purple/eggplant Calla Lilies.  They are sophisticated, rich in color and attention grabbing flowers.

To me these flowers work for romantic weddings, vintage weddings, winter weddings, dark weddings, I could go on!  I haven’t been able to stop thinking about these flowers so naturally I had to create an inspiration board.  When I see these beauties, I picture a wedding that incorporates a vintage style in a modern atmosphere such as a dark wood-lined restaurant.  I have paired these with cream and white roses for a nice contrast, and included a lot of candles at varying heights.
