Amanda + Daniel’s Old Hollywood DIY Wedding

Amanda and Daniel brought Old Hollywood style to Decatur, Georgia with their classy spring wedding.  Even a few showers couldn’t dampen their dapper spirits.  Their palette of black and red fit their theme perfectly, as did the Frank Sinatra cover band that kept guests jumping and jiving all night.

This wedding also is abundant with handmade details – the couple created the photo booth and props, and the bride arranged all the bouquets and centerpieces, as well as made the hairpieces for herself and the bridesmaids, AND added the lace applique to her shoes (*whew*)!  Last but certainly not least, the bride’s sister owns Savoreaux Cupcakery and made the mini-cake and cupcakes.  What a lucky couple!

From the photographer: Amanda and Daniel met their sophomore year at Young Harris College. After several classes together, they discovered how much they had in common and became close friends. They bonded over their mutual love of stage shows, classic cinema, and their own quirky senses of humor.  After they were cast together in their college production of The Music Man, Daniel started asking Amanda out, but she didn’t take him seriously, but he was persistent and six years later, they’re even more inseparable, goofy, and head over heels in love with each other.


Any couple that brings NERF guns to their wedding is okay with me!  Congrats on your beautiful wedding, Amanda and Daniel!

    1. Hi Claire! It seems to me like they are, but we didn’t receive that specific information. Hopefully the bride is reading and can chime in (and maybe consider writing a tutorial for us?) 🙂

  1. Hello, this is the bride! I’m so sorry not to have seen the comments and chimed in earlier, but actually, yes, all the centerpieces were completely handmade roses from coffee filters (I owe that idea to the fabulous Queen of DIY, Martha Stewart – It was quite an adventure and the most ambitious and time-consuming project I took on, but looking back I wouldn’t have done it any other way. The leftover flowers also make great keepsakes. 🙂
