Tabitha and Craig are from Rhode Island but longed for a destination beach wedding where they could spend a fun weekend with their families. On September 15, 2012 (ahem … the best day of the year – my birthday – woo!), everyone traveled to Marco Island in Southern Florida and enjoyed an intimate wedding celebration with lots of personal, DIY details.
There’s so many details in this wedding, it will make your head spin! From the ring holder, to the programs, to the water bottle labels, to the table signs, this wedding is full of unique and personalized details and, in my opinion, those are the best kind of weddings!
The bride wrote their ceremony, made the programs, made the table numbers and decorated the frames, and designed the cookie jars and labels. Oh, did I mention this wedding featured a cookie dessert buffet?
Other DIY elements: Tabitha and her father made their wooden signs, a close friend performed the ceremony, and the bride’s mother incorporated Japanese lanterns into the decor to honor their heritage.
Oh, and as guests were being seated for the ceremony, a rainbow appeared in the sky. It doesn’t get much more magical than that!
