Home Real Weddings Purple Weddings David + Andrea


The vintage feel of today’s wedding has me wanting to tuck into a cup of tea on the Pacific coast and meander through the image gallery. With September less than 24 hours away, I’m so ready for fall that I can hardly contain myself, and today’s wedding is just what I needed. David and Andrea went all out with their DIY projects – creating the favors, burlap flags, and branch centerpieces. It’s a great extension of their sweet Anne of Green Gables inspired proposal story, a video story of which can be found here. David and Andrea took a trip to Canada and the groom surprised his love with stops at the author’s home, as well as locations from the book and movie. All in all, a wonderful and soothing transition to the weekend.

I'm Whitney, your friendly neighborhood DIY Bride content contributor. I live in the Pacific Northwest (land of great beer, even better coffee, VooDoo Doughnuts, and lots o’ rain) with my hubby and our two dogs. A native Oregonian, I'm into hiking, trips to the beach, wine tasting, and farmers markets. My favorite activity has to be curling up in a chair with a good book and James Taylor on the stereo, after a day of madly crafting, baking, and writing. Along with working with DIY Bride, I also plan weddings and events in the Northwest.
