A romantic garden wedding ceremony

. A bluegrass band provided the wedding ceremony music
, kicking off the ceremony with the Tennessee Waltz
before switching to the traditional Wagner bridal march for Reese's big entrance.
I love what wedding planner
Yifat Oren created for the romantic garden ceremony. Witherspoon and Toth said their I Do
's beneath a rose-covered arbor with fresh-cut lavender beneath their feet. The fresh lavender provided an unforgettable aroma that enveloped the senses of wedding guests.
Reese donned a classic bridal hairstyle
, all down, sleek and straight, beneath her cathedral-length bridal veil. The cascading silk floral appliqué that adorned Reese's wedding dress
matched the design on Ava's Monique gown. The starlit completed the look with satin platform bridal heels
by Jimmy Choo (the Macy) and a sparkling pave diamond wedding band by William Goldberg.
Country Chic Wedding Reception
: Wedding guests
mixed and mingled beneath a romantic reception tent hung with sparkling chandeliers. Hundreds of mason jars featuring twinkling candles lit up the space, and wedding flower centerpieces
were created using wildflowers, English garden roses, lavender, sweet pea, cotton, rosemary and Queen Anne's lace.
Orange mint julep was the couple's signature drink, and a farm-inspired reception menu was served up by Lucques Mediterranean restaurant. The carefully selected menu included herb-roasted lamb and mustard grilled chicken, and a custom wedding monogram featuring adorable farm animals graced the top of the menus. The wedding cake
was a classic 4-tier white buttercream confection, but Reese and Jim didn't stop there! They also offered a chocolate cake (the groom's cake) and a yummy s'mores station.
Star-studded Guest List
