An English Afternoon Tea Garden Themed Wedding

Today's real wedding features the designer Brie, who owns the LA based clothing line, BREN, with her twin sister, Jenny. The wedding of Brie and Tom captured the vibe of an elegant picnic {LOVING this theme by the way}. With Tom originally from England, the couple embraced the ambiance of an English afternoon tea garden for their wedding. To carry this out, the wedding featured baby's breath bouquets, lemon centerpieces, croquet during the reception, Pim's as the signature cocktail, homemade scones by the bride, and a London Cab exit.

Many personal touches were seen throughout the wedding including . . .
• the lemon wedding cake was made by the groom's sister and mother
• the bride's mom and cousin played the guitar and sang the couple's first dance song
• the bridesmaids dresses were from the BREN line
• the groom's suit was designed by the bride's sister's boyfriend
