Home is where the closet is…No, I mean the dog…Wait sorry, I mean the DIY…Or something like that. There’s just so much to love about this at home engagement shoot courtesy of Ama Photography and Cinema. A beautiful home, a beautiful couple, a smiling pup and drinks afterward- sounds like elegant, modern perfection to me.
Karen and Ehsan just ooze simple and contemporary style. (And it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a closet that I wish I could camp out in too!) I love that they chose a setting that matches their style so well. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it- creating a wedding and engagement memories that are all about you?
We can’t thank Karen + Ehsan enough for inviting us into their homes. Congrats on your engagement! And thank you Ama Photography and Cinema for showing us that sometimes the best DIY is homemade romance.
This summer Midwest wedding has the sweetest little details, you can’t help but smile when you’re browsing through the gallery! It’s vintage and rustic and modern all rolled together – and it totally works. I love their underlying bird theme – from the logo on the napkins to the bird nest ring “pillow” to the bird cage card holder, which was found at an antique shop and spray painted yellow to match the wedding’s color palette.
Anna is a graphic designer, so naturally she designed all of their stationery and signage. The couple also made centerpieces out of cut recycled wine bottles and napkin rings out of wired tree bark and sola flowers (made from tapioca wood).
This event was a family affair, with the bride’s dad building the arbor for the ceremony as well as the bag toss game, and several relatives pitched in to make the heart mint favors.
After the ceremony, a freak storm moved through which made for some dramatic pictures.
And you can’t have a vintage wedding without a vintage get-away car, complete with DIY fabric sign made by the bride.
Congrats Anna and Jon!

I’ve talked before about how rainy the northwest can be, and anyone who’s read Twilight can attest to how damp we are. However, in the middle of November on a cold crisp day, the sun came out for Megan and Matt’s wedding.

Hello lovelies, and welcome back to our craft corner of the internet for Part Two of Tim and Vanessa’s nuptials.
One of the sweetest parts of Tim and Vanessa’s wedding is the small reception right after the ceremony. I have a soft spot for smaller after-parties because they really highlight the wedding ceremony, which is the most important part of any wedding day. They kept things dreamy, simple, and true to themselves – what every DIY wedding is about at its core.
Happy Sunday, everyone.

Lauren and Nathan’s destination DIY wedding is so clean, fresh, and simple. The couple is from California, but held their wedding celebration in New York’s Hudson Valley. The centerpieces were created by Lauren, who shipped the fruit for the decor from her own lemon tree at home. She also baked her own wedding cake (lemon, of course) with her mother and grandmother for the reception. The couple’s outdoor wedding and indoor hotel reception is so refreshing and crisp; a perfect showcase for a white palette with lemon accents.

Goodness, I love a fabulous beach wedding. Sara and Hollman went the destination route for their outdoor nuptials, and I am digging the light and airy tropical vibe of the day they created. One of things I really enjoy about destination weddings are how intimate they are; it’s truly a celebration with your nearest and dearest. That comfort level elevates the party aspect a little bit because everyone already knows each other. Then again, a few maracas to shake after the ceremony don’t hurt either. Sara added personal touches by crafting decor details, menu cards, and favors as well.
