"Our venue was so beautiful and unique," says Erica, who planned her wedding at the Gardens of Bammel Lane with the help of Green Lily Weddings. "I never wanted a traditional ballroom wedding," she adds. "I always pictured marrying in a garden." The ceremony was held in a gazebo draped with white linens and decorated with galvanized tin buckets filled with snapdragons.

The reception was held in the conservatory, where tables featured a variety of centerpieces, including tin pails full of white flowers , bells of Ireland in antique milk jugs, and glass bottles filled with craspedia, all atop yellow and gray table runners.
