Betsy and John's tented reception was held on the Carlouel Yacht Club's private beach. "I used to come here as a child, so it's very meaningful to me and my family," says Betsy. The couple worked with Shannon Wilson from Table 6 Productions on the event details.

The bride wore a Chantilly lace gown by Selia Yang purchased from the designer's boutique in New York City, where the couple currently resides. Betsy's bouquet featured a cascade of lilies of the valley, stephanotis, and orchids, including varieties of the bloom grown by her father. Floral design by Botanica International Design Studio. The bridesmaids wore champagne-colored dresses in styles they chose themselves. "I mailed swatches of ribbon and asked them to purchase dresses that matched," she says.
