Inspiration: Garden Party

Celebrate your nuptials in a lush, bloom-filled setting on a golden afternoon

Lately, we find ourselves staring out the window daydreaming about fanciful garden parties for spring and summer weddings. Picture this: Lush gardens full of rich greenery and vivid blooms, a sea of chiffon dresses and linen suits, guests mingling in the grass sipping on iced tea and nibbling on cakes, dainty wrought iron tables dressed with colorful floral arrangements, and a string quartet playing in the background. Sounds rather dandy, doesn’t it?
