Weddings are a team sport. They require all the main player to reach a level of synchronicity and synergy that professional sports teams strive for through grueling hours of practice, practice, practice. And when you’re on a budget, a good team is what can make or break your big day. Ashley + Sean’s wedding is proof of how championship teams are often right in our own backyards. Today’s flower filled fete had a terrifically talented pool of friends and fam to pick from including a chef, a songstress and an incredibly creative and skilled Dad. MickoPhotos has beautifully documented the day and the DIY deets and vintage touches (like Ashley’s amazing gown) that make this backyard beauty a winner!
From the bride:
Our whole wedding was DIY, creative and personal. It was done with the help and talents of so many of our friends and family. I designed and we hand printed all of our invitations. My maids of honor wrote and performed an original song during our ceremony that all of our wedding party and then all of our guests chimed in on. My sister in law wrote and recited a poem, my father designed and built our chuppah. My brother, a chef, created the menu and prepped all the food with our friend. A family friend made our delicious carrot cakes and designed our beautiful dessert buffet. Friends and family contributed flowers from their gardens and helped us arrange the flowers and bouquets. Another of my friends did my hair and make up. I could go on and on, we have amazingly talented friends and family and they all contributed in their own way with every aspect of the wedding which made it so personal, special and memorable.
Part of what makes a great team work is trusting each other and giving credit where credit is due. Well, Dad, amazing hustle on that chuppah! It’s so pretty I would want to hang out under it all day, every day. And bro-man, a menu that good deserves an end-zone dance. Get the high fives and butt-pats going after all the contributions every line made to this wedding. This goes for MVP’s Ashley and Sean too! A great team follows a great couple; which is easy to spot in the emotion and fun captured by Martina at MickoPhotos. Congratulations Ashley and Sean! Thanks Martina at MickoPhoto for submitting the best kind of championship ring ceremony.
