The Christian ceremony that kicked off the couple's July 9 wedding day, which was held on the center lawn of a French-Italian-style estate, was full of personal touches. Pastor Jon Ireland read a letter the two had written honoring their parents, and then the couple exchanged their own vows in front of an antique gate woven with clusters of geraniums, herbs, olive branches, and white and pale-yellow garden roses. "Tiffani was inspired by gardens of Provence," says Jennifer McGarigle of Floral Art.

Afterward guests walked through an arbor to the edge of a swan-filled pond, where an accordionist and violinist played Edith Piaf standards as the 135 guests drank Perrier Jouet champagne, French wines and beer.
When it came time to dine, the party moved to an upper lawn. "The reception looked like a beautiful dinner that one might stumble upon at a chateau," says the couple's wedding planner, Heidi Asimus of Special Occasions.Next Page
