Tara and Evan exchanged vows in the Tuscan Garden at Snug Harbor and brought the beauty of the garden into the reception decor with a floral theme. Everything from the invitations to the escort cards incorporated a romantic color palette of pink, peach, purple and ivory.

Tara and Evan's whole wedding was inspired by the beauty of the botanical gardens where they exchanged vows.
Guests were given cookies from Tara and Evan's favorite bakery and a matchbox that was personalized with the couple's name and wedding date to take home at the end of the night.
Tara's nephew was the ring bearer and carried the rings down the aisle on a peach pillow that was adorned with ivory flowers.
Tara and Evan ended the evening with a four tiered vanilla cake with a chocolate fudge filling. It had buttercream frosting and a cascade of light blue sugar roses that perfectly matched the pastel theme of the evening.
The bridesmaids' bouquets complemented their dresses and consisted of roses, waxflowers and other assorted flowers in a palette of pink, purple and ivory.
Evan wore a crisp boutonniere that had ivory roses and a mix of green leaves.
Each table featured a tall centerpiece dripping with amaranthus and a mix of hydrangeas and roses in shades of pink, peach, and ivory that popped against the ivory table linens.
Tara's niece was the flower girl and wore a peach tulle dress with a floral wreath in her hair. She carried rose petals down the aisle in a basket that was decorated with garden roses and light peach ribbons that matched her dress.
Tara's bouquet was a mix of roses, peonies and waxflowers in shades of blush pink, ivory and lilac.
The ceremony took place in the Tuscan Garden underneath a birch Chuppah that had amaranthus and other hanging greenery.
The decor at the reception was chosen to compliment the historic nature of the hall with ivory table linens and tall centerpieces to echo its height and grandeur.
In addition to the tall centerpieces, some tables had miniature centerpieces that were filled with blush and ivory roses.
