3 of 11Clockwise from top: Wedding bands by Furrer-Jacot sparkle against a handmade velvet ring pillow. Any bride will shine when she wears lacy glold-and-pearl earrings by TenThousandThings or marquise-shaped drops in 18-karat gold with faceted calcite stones by Becky Kelso. Cuff links for the groom in blue topaz and lemon citrine by Seaman Schepps will perfectly complement either pair of earrings.

7 of 11Manzanita branches, with berry clusters attached, were sprayed gold and hung from ribbons. Threaded over them are wide ochre ribbons that hold calligraphed seating cards in place. The contrasting gold ribbon is anchored at intervals with fabric glue. Glittering millinery flowers add the final touch. Calligraphy by Maria-Helena Hoksch.
8 of 11Where is it written that a bouquet must be carried? Why not wear it instead? These millinery roses were fashioned in iridescent pinks, peaches, and golds, and are pinned to a lustrous sash -- a simple length of wide ribbon. We chose the materials and sent them to M&S Schmalberg, maker of custom flowers, for fabrication. Dress by Carolina Herrera.
9 of 11Your cake will be pretty in pink with these lovely layers inspired by the equally lovely camelia flower. The tiers were created by laying a custom stencil by Designer Stencils on the fondant; royal icing was then spread over it. Once dry, the reliefs were rubbed with edible pearl dust tinted with gold-green luster dust to make them glitter. M&S Schmalberg created the flowers used in the bouquet topper.
10 of 11Take gold-rimmed stemware, gold-plated flatware, gold-colored chairs, and a golden runner. Mix and match them with a peach tablecloth and napkins wrapped in metallic lace. Set out vases of peonies, 'Evelyn' Garden roses, sweetpeas, and hibiscus. Fill your guests' glasses with a cool rose. Calligraphy by Deborah Delaney.
11 of 11The assortment of sweets on this table include pillow mints, Milkies, Sugarbonen, jelly beans, malted milk balls, taffy sticks, macaroons, and more. We adorned simple apothecary jars and the tablecloth with gold thread lace. The sign is propped up with Dresden Foil Flowers. Provide glassine bags so your guests can take home a sampling.
