For two landscape architects, an outdoor garden is, of course, the perfect wedding spot. Adding favorite blooms and a cheerful palette of green, purple and orange only enhanced the natural beauty. The couple's nondenominational ceremony took place in the early evening under a canopy of redwoods, and was followed by a reception full of flowers as the sun set over the venue.

Flowers, fresh air and no fuss are the perfect mix for this fun fete

For two landscape architects, an outdoor garden is, of course, the perfect wedding spot. Adding favorite blooms and a cheerful palette of green, purple and orange only enhanced the natural beauty. The couple's nondenominational ceremony took place in the early evening under a canopy of redwoods, and was followed by a reception full of flowers as the sun set over the venue.

The reception began just before twilight. "Lights sparkled throughout the grounds, making everything look really festive and warm," says Amanda.
