With a nod to a more traditional-style wedding, Stephanie and Andrew created a sweet and beautiful day for themselves.
According to photographer, Laura Elaine Photography , The DIY details for this wedding were extremely well done and present everywhere throughout the day.
The following DIY details that were done by the bride, groom and their families: The Save the Dates, Invitation Suite and Menu Cards were completely DIY. They cut and glued burlap, gold and bows onto them and really tied their theme in. The bride took kraft boxes and decorated them similar to the invitations for everyone in their bridal party. Included in that box were handmade hangers for each of the girls that were beautiful and different from the ones I see on etsy all the time. At the ceremony they had created burlap wreaths for the entrance, all of the aisle decor and the streamer sticks that all of the guests waved during their recessional. I can’t imagine the time this took! At the reception, they had made the table assignment cards, all of the table numbers and the stands, decorated all of the containers for the flowers on the tables as well. Each guest received a small mason jar of apple butter that the couple made and the lid was decorated with their thumbprints making a heart with pink paint. On the gift table they used a barrel to collect the cards and created the cute signage for it. I loved hearing that every Wednesday in the year leading up to the wedding the bride, her parents and her sister would get together and work on all of their crafts. Everything was flawless and you can definitely tell how much time they put into everything.
The love and care everyone took with the projects and details definitely shines through!
