Modern Springtime Garden Wedding
Inspired by the season, a brides.com editor creates a modern garden party with whimsical touches. "Dan and I were really excited that spring had finally arrived after a long, cold winter," says Kim, brides.com's associate fashion editor. "We wanted our wedding to be a celebration of spring." Cocktail hour was held on the back deck before the ceremony, and included a punch bar and a selection of beers brewed in cities where the couple have lived. The couple exchanged vows beneath a chuppah fashioned from natural vines adorned with purple, blue, and white hydrangeas. The ceremony and reception were held at the bride's parents' home in the Hamptons.
