A Purple Military Garden Wedding at Hudson Gardens in Littleton, Colorado

"If you ask Roshan, he would say our theme was 'no starch,' meaning our true theme was to have a joyful celebration with the people who mean the most to us," says Ashley Arendale, 32, CPA. If you ask Ashley, however, she'd refer to her wedding to Elvin L. "Roshan" Baum II, 33, a US Army sergeant, as a relaxed garden party. No matter what you call it, Ashley and Roshan's military garden wedding was a carefree, low-maintenance bash --and exactly what they wanted. Aesthetically, they stuck to shades of purple with accents of sage and champagne, to complement to their lush garden setting.
