Monthly archives:August 2012

  • David + Andrea

  • The vintage feel of today's wedding has me wanting to tuck into a cup of tea on the Pacific coast and meander through the image gallery. With September less than 24 hours away, I'm so ready for fall that I can hardly contain myself, and today's wedding is just what I needed. David and Andrea went al[...]
  • Lauren + Nathan

  • Lauren and Nathan's destination DIY wedding is so clean, fresh, and simple. The couple is from California, but held their wedding celebration in New York's Hudson Valley. The centerpieces were created by Lauren, who shipped the fruit for the decor from her own lemon tree at home. She also baked her [...]
  • Aimee + Chris

  • I'm so in love with today's couple. Aimee and Chris not only had a beautiful wedding, full of handmade touches by the bride, but what really gets me is how they look exactly¬†like what you imagine every newlywed couple should look on their wedding day. Happy, in love, full of faith in their relations[...]
  • Luke + Laura

  • The wedding of Luke + Laura is rustic central. I'm in a fit of swooning over the soft palette, the lighting through the slats in the barn during the ceremony, and the low-key lantern release during the reception. The entire wedding was designed and pulled together by the couple, their family, and fr[...]
  • Tiffani + Adam

  • Charming and sweet is how I would describe today's Real Wedding. Tiffani and Adam had a wonderful outdoor wedding, and built their day from the ground up. The couple created and collected all the decor for the tables, a friend catered the entire shindig, and Adam and Tiffani crafted their own weddin[...]
  • Weekend Love: Shawn + Dawn

  • Good morning and happy Saturday everybody! We're doing things a little bit differently this weekend - it's all wedding all day up in this business. Today we have the first part of Shawn and Dawn's wedding from our neighbor to the north (Hi Canada!), and I am loving the influx of brightly colored [...]
  • Keri + Alex

  • One of the best parts of handling the Real Weddings of DIY Bride is all the unique photos and touches I get to see when readers and vendors submit weddings. Case in point, Alex and Keri's wedding. They were married in the Bumper Car Pavilion at Glen Echo Park, and took pictures in front of the gorge[...]
  • Amy + Jared

  • I officially dig the color combo of pink and green. It's bright, spunky, and full of sass - a perfect vibe for an outdoor summer wedding. Amy and her mother created all the decor and tablescapes for the wedding, as well as pulling together all the flowers, and crocheting the (hot pink!) doilies. The[...]
  • Marti + Matthew

  • Marti and Matthew had a stunning outdoor Texas wedding (hellooooo, check out those flowers on the wedding arch!), complete with cheesecake, an awesome candy buffet, and a punchy blue and pink color palette. The bride put her graphic design knowledge to good use by creating all the signage, programs,[...]
  • Sam + Jake

  • Sam and Jake had a flash mob to "Let's Hear It For The Boy" from Footloose, and they had a Lost-themed wedding.   I believe I can go home now. :)   Their wedding is just fantastic. It's so them (they bonded over Lost the first time they met), and it's a great interpretation of [...]
  • Jaimee + Diego

  • I don't know what it's been about this week, but we have been all over the brightly colored weddings and today is no exception. The wedding of Jaimee and Diego is not only bright, but sweet and intimate and currently tugging on my heartstrings. They are just such a great couple, and Jaimee's mother [...]
  • Katie + Jason

  • Y'all, Katie and Jason had a PARTY on their wedding day. Scrolling through the gallery is awesome - I love weddings where the fun is in full effect. I am also super excited about their fresh take on the literary-themed wedding. Using books in wedding decor is one of the most versatile ways to dress [...]
