Whoa! Am I loving this job or what?! I originally hail from the fashion world. So that means I love a Vogue Editorial as much as I love a Glitter Chevron Invitation Tutorial. I must secretly confess that my DIY obsession started from trying to save where I could to splurge on things I couldn’t do myself- like clothing.
So what kind of luck do I have grabbing Mary Lou and Jason’s vintage carnival styled shoot? “Wow!” is all I have to say to this team of vendors that created such a beautiful and creative session mixing the perfect amount of fashion editorial with down home DIY.
Amy Zumwalt Photography and Off Your Shoulders event planners did such a great job using one of my new favorite color combos- red and mint. It set the tone for the vintage carnival feel perfectly. And those fabulous invitations are just to die for! From the photographer: “We used a firework stand park for our setting and mixed vintage, edgy, sexy and glam by using vintage furniture, red lipstick and heels, the awesome non-traditional setting, and lots of fun accessories.”
While we all loved mismatched china, you have to check out the re-purposed door as a table set up. The knife board and chalk figures made for super fun and playful shots of the bride and groom to be. Thank you to this fabulous team of Texas vendors for putting this together and congratulations to Mary-Lou and Jason!

Well Howdy y’all.
It’s me, Rachel, the new addition to the DIY Bride team. I’m so excited to be part of such a fun and creative community! Now that my hazing is complete, and I’ve almost gotten all the glitter and glue out of my hair, (totally kidding, these girls are awesome!) I finally get to write my first Real Wedding! I couldn’t have dreamed of better first post. When I got to first look over Lauren and Howard’s elopement in Marfa, Texas, I nearly spit out my New York “caw-fee.”
Lauren and Howard’s elopement is the kind of event that made me want to join the DIY Bride community. It’s fun and creative with the perfect amount of tradition, and a whole lot of love. It’s proof that a fairy tale wedding doesn’t always have to involve a poufy dress and horse drawn carriages.
Q Weddings Photography did a great job capturing Lauren and Howard’s spirit. From the photographer: “Lauren and Howard chose their wedding date (11-11-11) because of the cool sequence of numbers. Then they chose to elope to Marfa, Texas. They had never been, but they are both artists and felt like exploring this renowned artist town would be a unique start to their marriage.”
Oh! What a great choice it was; shooting at one of the Donald Judd installations and El Cosmico trailer park created a great artsy, modern, yet retro vibe. Howard created the red “ones” that added an awesome modern, graphic element. Lauren’s cute short dress, handmade fabric bouquet and birdcage veil were a perfect fit for the retro feel. Throw in a cute pup in a matching sweater for “family” portrait and you have seriously simple diy perfection.
Lunch for Lauren and Howard was in a school bus and they stayed at the coolest trailer park ever! While that might not sound very “fairy tale” for some, it’s incredibly unique, fun and retro. A scrumptious looking chocolate cake just for two was the perfect hint of romance and tradition. All that combined with the fact that they got married by Judge Cinderella! Can’t get more fairy tale than that, can you?!
Congratulations Lauren and Howard! Thanks for sharing your day with us!

I don’t know what it’s been about this week, but we have been all over the brightly colored weddings and today is no exception. The wedding of Jaimee and Diego is not only bright, but sweet and intimate and currently tugging on my heartstrings. They are just such a great couple, and Jaimee’s mother showcased their love by completely overhauling her backyard to create a great DIY wedding day.

Lovely sighs all around this afternoon – Chinese lanterns figure prominently in this wedding, and I love them so much. The effect is stunning. Be sure to take a beat this afternoon and check out today’s wonderful Real Wedding gallery. Ann and Mark are both graphic designers, and they designed every inch of their destination wedding with a warm color wheel of reds and yellows to emphasis the latin vibe. They letterpressed and screen printed the invites, welcome bags, and coasters, as well as creating the decor.
