“SPEND TIME ON YOUR VOWS. WE WROTE OURS TO­GETHER, MAK­ING SPE­CIFIC PROM­ISES TO EACH OTHER THAT WE’LL COME BACK TO THROUGH­OUT OUR MAR­RIAGE TO RE­FRESH AND RE­NEW OUR IN­TEN­TIONS.” —Britt

Bush ivy, rust-brown ama­ran­thus, and dusty-blue del­phinium were among the blooms run­ning the length of the ta­bles.“We wanted an ethe­real, can­dlelit din­ner party,” says Britt.

The cou­ple’s vows, which took place be­neath an arch that fea­tured olive branches, nan­d­ina, smi­lax, and gar­den roses, in­cluded a Bud­dhist wis­dom wa­ter cer­e­mony and a mo­ment of mind­ful­ness.

Britt’s richly col­ored bou­quet held white mink pro­tea—na­tive to Court­ney’s home coun­try of Aus­tralia—and lo­cally grown dahlias.

A 70-year-old cake top­per, used by Britt’s grand­par­ents, crowned the gluten-free al­mond cake.

As a wed­ding gift, Court­ney had Britt’s beloved grand­mother’s opal ring re­paired.
