The Bride Beth Anne Larimore, 27, works in online promotional sales and marketing The Groom Dave Kuhnau, 41, an entrepreneur The Date August 7 Beth and Dave’s planning buzzwords included “garden party,” “timeless” and “French country,” which they achieved with soft pinks and lots of natural greenery.

Beth’s bouquet of roses and greens was wrapped with her “something old”: fabric from one of her grandmother’s Sunday gloves.
Beth wore her hair in a low bun with a silk flower set on one side.
Each card was tucked into a stand made of three wine bottle corks glued together.
The bridesmaids carried pale-pink and ivory roses mixed with greenery and berries for texture.
Handmade sugar flowers and rose petals decorated the couple’s buttercream cake, which was topped with fresh, soft-pink roses.
A rose and vine motif set the tone for the couple’s garden party wedding.
Tulip-pink dresses by Jenny Yoo Collection screamed “garden party,” as did the khaki suits and matching pink ties the guys wore.

Beth and Dave opted for a simple blue table runner to keep the wood of their head table exposed. A line of chandeliers hung directly above for a dramatic look.
Beth’s satin pumps were dyed to match her ivory dress. The brooches and bows on the peep toes gave them a romantic feminine look.
Beaded letters spelling out “Mr.” and “Mrs.” hung from the backs of Beth’s and Dave’s chairs at dinner.
The sides of the tent were kept open so as not to obstruct the view, and the dance floor was set up outside on the lawn.
