White Rose Glamelia

For her wedding on a private estate in Pasadena, California, this bride carried a glamelia, or bouquet made from the petals of white roses.

Bridesmaid Bouquet

This bridesmaid bouquet, created by Mark's Garden in Sherman Oaks, California, is full of white and pink peonies, lavender garden roses and hydrangeas.

Breezeway By Day

White and blush hydrangeas line the estate's breezeway where the garden wedding reception was held.

Path to the Reception

Guests passed through the breezeway and into the reception area, where tables were decorated with centerpieces of white hydrangeas and colored roses.

Al Fresco Dining

L.A.'s Details Event Planning decorated rustic farm tables with lace, candles and light blue napkins for the post-wedding dinner.

A Cascade Cake

White hydrangeas and dark purple roses add an elegant burst of color to this simple wedding cake.

Bright Future

After sunset, votive and pillar candles in hurricane vases make the breezeway glow.

Dinner in the Dark

White lights, palm trees and alternating tables with short and tall centerpieces make for a magical night for the newlyweds' friends and family.

Something Blue

The Special Day Event Planning and Design created a chic, minimalist look for this garden reception at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Love and Lilies

The groomsmen wore boutonnieres made of white and purple calla lilies.
