Shelby & Patrick’s DIY Rustic Wedding

Shelby and Patrick exemplify how putting a small collection of handmade details together can create a beautiful setting for a wedding without breaking the bank. There’s nothing showy or over-top-here; just a happy couple surrounded by lovely things in the great outdoors of Tennessee. We love the bright pops of coral-y pinks and bright blues that add a bit of fun their rustic-themed day.

Let’s get to know Shelby and Patrick:

How did the two of you meet? Patrick worked with my mom and my mom fell in love with him! Every day she would come home from work and talk about Patrick and how great he was. She finally convinced me to go to work with her and I met him that day.

What was your first date like? We walked along the marina in Oak Ridge and talked for hours! He sang “I don’t want this night to end” by Luke Bryan and we slow danced under the stars while he sang to me.

How did he propose? Well, the day before he proposed, hwent and bought me stuff for a nice bath. He also bought me a dress and scarf from “Tommy Hilfigher”. The next day started off with breakfast in bed. He also had planned (with my sister) a surprise for me scheduled at 12 o’clock. I had no clue what they had planned.

Did you have any DIY projects? If so, what? Where did you get the ideas? Would you do it again? We had tons of DIY projects! Most of our ideas came from looking at ideas on Pinterest and tweaking them to make them fit us. Our biggest project was decorating mason jars to sit on the tables with candles in them. We would definitely do everything we did for our wedding all over again!
