It’s easy to get lost in all of the darling deets that so many of you creatives share with us. And I am always a big fan of bucking tradition and following the road less traveled. But every once in while, I need a dose of good, old fashioned, family centered, make-your-heart melt love story- with some good DIY on the side, of course! Heather + Charles’ perfectly pretty wedding captured by Lori Lee Photography is just the right helping of all of that and then some.
That adorable escort of Heather’s happens to be her son. I love that they included him in their big day from the invites to the ring exchange. Air Force Captain Charles even gave him a promise ring to always be a father-figure and strong force in his life. I’ll give you some time to fan away the tears before I go into the inspiring DIY that Heather and her sister created in the year long span before the wedding.
Like many of the weddings we feature here, although it’s called “Do-it-yourself” the best weddings come with little help from your friends and fam. The three little love birds cake topper was hand sewn by Heather’s sister. They also created the monograms on the doors, invitations, programs and menus. Now I don’t know about you, but in my book, you can’t go wrong with edible favors; especially cookies!!!! Heather baked over 100 cookies for her wedding day as favors, and Charles helped out by printing out the labels that would go on the cookie covers. Yummmmm!!!!
A big thanks to Lori Lee Photography for sharing this classic and classy wedding! Congratulations Heather and Charles!
