  • Ashton + Amy

  • Amy and Ashton had a delightful summer wedding at a reinvented children's summer camp. They hung tons of bunting (ooooo bunting, how I love thee), and used a canoe for holding drinks. The couple also created a photobooth and sweets table for the guests, and decorated the gorgeous ceremony space with[...]
  • Sara + Joey

  • Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you for being so patient as we work out the remaining kinks resulting from the hacking and subsequent rebuilding of the site. We're almost done, and moving back to a platform that works much better for us. What's especially fantastic is that this means Real Wedding[...]
  • Shannon + Nickolas

  • Today's wedding. . . just makes me smile so much. I adore the black, white, pink, and green color palette, love the vineyard location, and the couple just exudes the happiness that comes along with one of the biggest days of your life. So I've spent most of today smiling. The day was punctuated by t[...]
  • Anna + Kristian

  • Happy Friday, my crafty lovelies! It is nice and sunny here in Portland today, so I am in a rather snazzy mood. Hopefully you all have a change to get out and enjoy your weekend to the fullest.   One of the things I love most about putting together the Real Weddings section of DIY Bride i[...]
  • Kelley + Chris

  • Having time constraints on your wedding celebration can be a bit of a bummer. You only have a few hours after the ceremony to mingle with all your guests, and the day goes by so fast! Enter, the idea of a wedding weekend. Multi-day celebrations are not unheard of by any stretch of the imagination[...]
  • Katherine + Christopher

  • I'm always so intrigued when the weddings of people who work in the wedding industry make their way across my desk. Since they are constantly surrounded by weddings, my interest is piqued by what elements they select for their own special day. Katherine is a wedding photographer, and was very hands-[...]
  • Rachel + Brandon

  • When this wedding was first submitted to us, I must admit I wasn't sure it was DIY. The gallery was so well edited, the details so polished, the whole day so pulled together, I assumed that the couple had hired out most of the decor elements. I was flabbergasted when Rachel emailed us more informati[...]
  • Traci + John

  • Every so often I get hung up on a few details in a wedding that are just so great I just have to sit and stare at them, absorbing all the pretty. With Traci and John's wedding, there are two - Traci's dress, and the banners that hang on the back of the reception chairs. She purchased her dress and a[...]
  • Elizabeth + Brian

  • Colorado is full of beautiful scenery, and Elizabeth and Brian took full advantage of it by getting married at the summit of Pikes Peak. They used the location to inspire the invitations (which were based off vintage Pikes Peak postcards and done by a family member) and the DIY elements throughout t[...]
  • Gus + Anna

  • The bride from this wedding is a Nashville artist who was married in an art gallery surrounded by her own pieces, and it was a ceremony that had to jump over a few hurdles to happen. While Gus and Anna originally planned on marrying in Chicago, their venue fell through several weeks before the weddi[...]
  • Jon + Sarah

  • We have another lovely engagement session this week for your enjoyment. Sarah and Jon worked with Heidi Orcino from heidi-o-photo to create a sweet vintage engagement shoot. Sarah collected all the props for the session, and even wore her mother's wedding dress for some of the shots.   [...]
  • Loretta + David

  • Something about burlap and lace just works. It's a ¬†little vintage, a little rustic, a little girly - but with an edge. Carefully selecting textures can go a long way when styling and planning a wedding. Loretta and David describe themselves as an easy-going couple, and wanted their wedding "to feel[...]
