Keri + Drew’s shabby chic wedding is absolutely stunning. Their Iowa shabby chic wedding has so many beautiful details including mason jars, weathered furniture, and flowery greenery that pops. Keri and Drew went out incorporating the color green into their wedding details from the brides shoes and table centerpieces to their delicious green candy table. Using more than just the color green, one of the most unique and creative ideas Keri and Drew used in their shabby chic wedding was the use of plants as guest favors. Photographing their Iowa wedding was Emily from Emily Crall Photography. Emily fills us in on some of the couple’s wedding day fun.
One of the key elements to a perfectly orchestrated event is cohesiveness. We spotted these incredible real wedding details to illustrate how to pull off a perfectly coordinated wedding – from the initial Save the Date sent to guests (which set the decor right off the bat) to the mini hearts on the cupcakes, escort cards, table numbers, tree sign, mason jar centerpieces, and more. It is the handmade + diy details which personalize an event to the max, and Yessenia & Dustin did a fabulous job. Take a peek at our favorite details from the day:
DIY, breakfast, and more! Nicole and Sean New England DIY breakfast wedding has a lot of DIY details and were LOVING it! We know you will too! This beautiful and awesomely themed wedding was photographed by Amanda from Boro: Creative Visions. Our hat is off to both Amanda and Nicole for putting together this DIY wedding for our blog.
We love this Duluth wedding and Erin + Nick’s little red details! Erin, the bride, did an amazing job incorporating red throughout her theme and crafted her own details to accent her wedding day. Erin and Nick’s Minnesota wedding was photographed by Stacey from LaCoursiere Photography based in Duluth, Minnesota.
Stacey tells us, “This bride did nearly everything herself. She handmade her headband. She ordered little photo charms and attached them to all the bridal bouquets. Each of the bridesmaids bouquets had the photos of the brides memories with them. The brides bouquet had photos of unique memories to her, and photos of her family members that had passed. She dyed her grooms socks to match her shoes. All the bridesmaids jewelry was handmade by her. She hand wrote the whole wedding ceremony script. It was incredibly unique..”
We’re excited to show off these great wedding photos from Kristina of Kristina Hill Photography. Kristina’s sister is the lovely bride and the handmade details are amazing! Check them out for yourself after a few words from Kristina.
Kristina tells us, “April and Michael were married at the Stroudsmore Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA and their wedding site was called Woodsgate. It was an outdoor chapel with wooden benches, surrounded by tall fall trees. My sister is a graphic designer and she designed pretty much all of the details of her wedding – programs, menus, logo, favors, etc.
Lastly, her invites were screen-printed vintage handkerchiefs and her response cards were mad libs (they were pretty cool!). It was all wrapped up with a tree bark printed paper ‘ribbon’. Thank you notes (which are mixes from their wedding night music, because all night people complimented them on how ‘unique’ and ‘them’ the music played was) printed on cd’s that look like records are in the works!”
Birdseed packets were designed by April and sewn by the groom’s mother with the old saying ‘”cause being single is for the birds”!
Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope you’re geared up for another week full of wedding inspiration… we’re chock full of handmade goodness and we can’t wait to share it with you! But first…
… How was your weekend? This afternoon, I had the pleasure of meeting my best girlfriend for coffee to discuss her upcoming July wedding. It is going to be such a beautiful event held near a lake at a garden, complete with a bed and breakfast on site (one of those knock-your-socks-off kind of places with intricate details, creaky stairs and the most beautiful vintage details), a sweet little brick-paved garden path, tons of flowers, cute little tables with umbrellas… and, she’s making her own cake (you go, girl). She is a talented baker who makes the. most. incredible. cakes. ever. And, they taste even better than they look, which is, in a word, amazing. Ah, wedding season.
So.. on to this morning’s post! I spotted this real wedding and I am smitten with the sweet saffron + charming details. The images are by You Look Nice Today Photography, who did an exception job capturing each detail perfectly (by the by, check out their site – GORGEOUS). And, this is the perfect time to reiterate how important it is (especially with handcrafted, detail-rich events) to have a skilled photographer who will capture each detail. You worked hard to make your wedding memorable, so make sure your photos showcase your endeavors!
From study partners to wedded bliss, Cortney and James’ southern fall wedding is sweet. Surrounded by fall foliage, this November 13th Raleigh wedding was held at the grandiose 1705 Prime venue. This elegant North Carolina wedding was masterfully photographed by Carolyn from Carolyn Scott Photography. Thank you Carolyn!
Carolyn tells us,
“Cortney and James were a wonderful couple that I had the joy of photographing on a beautiful fall day in the south! They met during chiropractic school and shortly after the wedding opened their own chiropractic office in Durham. They couldn’t be sweeter and the day was filled with gorgeous details. Cortney’s dad bought her the awesome shoes and the flower in her hair was from her mother’s wedding hat.”
