You know what I love more than a super sweet couple’s amazing DIY wedding photos?  When I find out that the gorgeousness oozing off the page was created by craft crazy bride with a tight budget in mind.  Ana + Ben are certainly adorable enough to love by themselves.  And the details and moments captured by Katelyn Owens Photography are superb too.  And it goes without saying our obsession over some good DIY decor.  But when Ana shared that all of this amazing crafting was created for under $10k.  Well, let’s just say time to start pinning my dears, time to start pinning.

I am so in love with this little outdoor chapel at Stone Oak Ranch!  With a short and sweet ceremony the party moved into the barn where BBQ was cooked and served by close friend on mismatched china to tables with handmade wildflower centerpieces.  A photo timeline bunting of the happy couple served as wall decor, and the pies and cake were also made by friends and fam.  But Ana here was no joke, she was just having too much fun to stop at a few recycled apple sauce jar lanterns.

From the bride:

We had a very small budget to work with (under 10,000) but with a LOT of help from family and friends and some creativity, we were able to have our dream wedding at an affordable price. With an “I can make that!” attitude I worked late into the night making save the dates, invitations, flower girl baskets, a ring-bearer pillow and the list goes on and on. Everyone thought i was crazy, but it was too much fun too quit.

All of Ana’s crafting insanity and beautiful vision of a rustic chic event was brilliantly captured by Katelyn Owens Photography.  And while we are super excited about this, she also managed to capture the real details that make every wedding unique- the special love between the bride and groom.
