Amy and Ashton had a delightful summer wedding at a reinvented children’s summer camp. They hung tons of bunting (ooooo bunting, how I love thee), and used a canoe for holding drinks. The couple also created a photobooth and sweets table for the guests, and decorated the gorgeous ceremony space with antique tablecloths. A perfect way to embrace the sweet, rustic vibe of the day.
And I’m still swooning over the bunting.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you for being so patient as we work out the remaining kinks resulting from the hacking and subsequent rebuilding of the site. We’re almost done, and moving back to a platform that works much better for us.
What’s especially fantastic is that this means Real Weddings are back! Yay! Today we are starting things off right with the wonderful wedding of Sara and Joey. An adorable couple who met their freshman year of college, Sara wanted to have a “fun, whimsical, and romantic-themed wedding. . . I liked the idea of keeping some things traditional, but putting my own twist on them to make them meaningful for us.” Oh boy, did they deliver. This gallery is phenomenal – all the adorable details, and DIY touches. I want to get married again and do it just like this!

Today’s wedding. . . just makes me smile so much. I adore the black, white, pink, and green color palette, love the vineyard location, and the couple just exudes the happiness that comes along with one of the biggest days of your life. So I’ve spent most of today smiling. The day was punctuated by the sweet DIY details created by the couple, and the wedding was one surrounded by love and warmth.

Happy Friday, my crafty lovelies! It is nice and sunny here in Portland today, so I am in a rather snazzy mood. Hopefully you all have a change to get out and enjoy your weekend to the fullest.
One of the things I love most about putting together the Real Weddings section of DIY Bride is the wide range of submissions we receive. It really goes to show that no matter if you get married in your backyard, a barn, a church, or on a pier, you can DIY the details to fit your personal aesthetic. Anna and Kristian are the couple that married on a pier in New York, and the result is a modern and fresh ceremony with a reception at the home of a local light installation artist. The bride’s dress was vintage, she made her own veil, and all the florals and arrangements were created by the mother of the bride and maid of honor.

Having time constraints on your wedding celebration can be a bit of a bummer. You only have a few hours after the ceremony to mingle with all your guests, and the day goes by so fast! Enter, the idea of a wedding weekend.
Multi-day celebrations are not unheard of by any stretch of the imagination, and our couple today took the idea in an emerging direction. They rented out a local YMCA camp for an entire weekend of festivities and fun with all their guests. Kelley and Chris were married in an outdoor chapel on the property among the redwoods, and their reception was in the mess hall. The decor for the day was created and executed by the couple, their family, and friends.

I’m always so intrigued when the weddings of people who work in the wedding industry make their way across my desk. Since they are constantly surrounded by weddings, my interest is piqued by what elements they select for their own special day. Katherine is a wedding photographer, and was very hands-on when creating the DIY decor elements of her wedding. Christopher and Katherine were married in the church where the groom is the pastor, and they built their ceremony and reception from the ground up – the favors, ceremony covering, tree bark tags, and signs were all made by the couple.
