When Jonathan proposed to Kayla, he whipped up a home-cooked dinner and placed an antique tin water pitcher full of blue hydrangeas—Kayla's favorite—beside an old leather picture frame containing a photo of the words "Will you be my wife?" at the center of the dinner table. This inspired the look and feel of their August affair: "We wanted the wedding to have an antique feel, filled with family tradition," says Kayla. The day featured a color scheme of soft blues, greens and creams and, of course, tons of hydrangeas.
