“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.
