Um. There are very few times that I am rendered speechless, but Brittany and Ryan’s wedding left me that way for a while. I found myself going through this gallery over and over admiring so many things from the bride’s amazingly ruffled dress and the sweet first look, to the to-die-for simple diy name frame favors and the oh-so modern guestbook.
If you haven’t fallen in love with the grey and yellow color combo yet, you will now. Brittany and Ryan showed how to blend the colors beautifully. The fun patterns they incorporated gave the colors a modern edge, but the simple styling of the event kept thing perfectly classic. With the historic Z Mansion in Tucson as the backdrop, they showed that DIY is as classic as it is classy.
As much as I loved this color palette, the bride’s stunning style and all the little details like the packaged streamers to throw for the get-away, there was more thing about this wedding that made my heart skip a beat. Lowe Photos let us know that this couple’s love story started in kindergarten. Talk about timeless romance!
We can’t forget to thank Lowe Photos for capturing every one of these sweet moments and perfect details. Congratulations Brittany and Ryan! Thank you for sharing such a gorgeous day!

Some things are just meant to be: arroz con pollo, me and this job, mannequins and cars, TOMS and Vera Wang, Lucia and David. The Spanish elements of this wedding reminded me of some of the family weddings I attended as a kid, so I felt a little connection here. But Lucia and David’s fiesta didn’t just speak to my Spanish roots; it was literally spoken in Spanish.
The amount of romance in this wedding is ridiculous! David spoke his traditional vows in Spanish. (Swoon!) Lucia’s mother is an opera singer and sang during the ceremony. You know that got some tears. (Aye, aye, aye!) Not to worry though, there were hankies with hand sewn Spanish phrases like “I love you” to keep any make up smudges from ruining the gorgeous work captured by Evangeline Lane Photography.
If for some reason that isn’t enough to make you feel all warm and gooey, two adorable ring bearers in light summery linen carried one of the many handmade signs that add fantastic personal Spanglish touches. The Mexican papel picado details combined with the beautiful rustic gardens of the Larz Auto Museum are perfect compliments to one another.
Since we are the topic, this reception venue is just another example of things that are meant to be; lush gardens and brick castle-like structures, cars and well-dressed mannequins?! This must have been designed by a bride and groom for a future happy couple. Lucia and David added rustic touches like baby’s breath and wildflowers in rustic mason jars which offset the stylish brick surrounding and chevron runners.
Whoever designed it, I’m glad they did. More importantly I’m thrilled that Lucia and David chose this fabulous location and to share it with us here at DIY Bride!
Felicidades Lucia y David!

It’s days like today that I love my job. Like, *stupidlovemyjobohmygoodnessgracious*
This wedding today, of Haylie and Aaron, is just that good.
Before I get to the good stuff and let the bride take it away, I just want to note all the scrabble details (drool) and funky retro vibe of the couple. They made their wedding all about their interests and personalities, creating an awesome event for their guests.
From the bride: Aaron & I are both really creative and laid back, so when we got engaged, we decided that we wanted our wedding to be a reflection of our personalities. Aaron and I both love old stuff so we used a lot of our vintage items from our home to add into the décor. There were a lot of old cameras, radios, family photos, birdcages and steamer trunks. We even used a trunk to make our seating chart. We rented 2 vintage 1960’s Shasta travel trailers & set them up in the front of the barn for a place for people to gather and hang out in. We were both really excited to use Bambi, my 1960 Rambler on our drive from the church to the reception. Aaron surprised me by decorating the car with pompoms and old tin cans, it was so special – it ended up being one of my favorite parts of the day! He and our friend Francis Dawson, an amazing succulent designer and artist, used an old Vespa frame that we had and planted it with succulents and it looked unbelievable!We both love to dance. Along with our amazing dj, one of our other close friends came and spun Vinyl 60’s soul music that really got everyone dancing! Everyone was dancing all night long! Aaron’s mother is the succulent whisperer, so she made our centerpieces from pickings out of her own succulent garden, & filled some of them with knick-knacks from Aaron’s childhood. I made our table numbers from found photos of other vintage weddings and scrabble tiles. Our cake topper was a surprise from Aaron’s sister- it looked exactly like us! One of our favorite details from the wedding was the guys’ boutonnières, made by Francis Dawson. He was able to incorporate my collection of vintage skeleton keys. Each one was different and they were just the coolest thing ever! For our favors, we found these awesome vintage resin coffee cups, and planted succulents in them for our guests to take with them.

I love a good romantic wedding. Give me a photo gallery of soft rustic charm, warmth, and swoon-worthy details, and I’m a happy girl. When Megan and Wil decided to make their long-distance love permanent, they settled on a gorgeous venue near her family’s home in Washington for their special day. They used pinks, peaches, oranges, and creams to create their beautiful color palette, and the rustic setting of the day highlights the juxtaposition of textures and DIY details.

Are you ready for all the reception goodness that is David and Laura’s post-ceremony celebration? Go ahead, soak it in, I’ll wait.
First I want to point out how they bucked tradition a wee bit by serving cake pops instead of cake – adorable little serving sizes of cake for their guests! Everything is just so much cuter when it’s tiny and/or on a stick. We’re also digging on the decoupaged letters on the guest book table, the chalk board love story, and how cute are the Mickey and Minnie cake toppers?! Paired with the sweet smiles of the couple, and its almost too much!
