• {Real Wedding} Liz & Adam: A Nature-Inspired DIY Wedding

    I didn’t do a ‘first look’ but I like seeing them documented!

    The bride and groom did all of their own paper goods.  Love that owl!

    Event Planner:  Jessica Rath
    Event Designer:  Lee Forrest Design
    Cake Designer:  Anna Cakes

    From the bride:

    Since both of us are graphic designers by trade or hobby, we created all of our seating cards, table cards and programs from scratch. We had a nature theme, so we used images of plants and animals to tie everything together. My stepmom and friends handmade all of our favors.

    Certain elements were special to us, like sneaking sunflowers into the boutonnieres since they’re Adam’s favorite. Our florist made them fit the color palette by plucking the petals. 

    We rented a photo booth because every year since we started dating, we take a set of photo booth pictures to commemorate it. (Going for set #6 in June!) 

    What made our wedding “ours” was simply getting our family involved. But to me, as the bride, my favorite (and scariest) moment was playing a violin duet with my brother for Adam and all of the guests. It may not have been album-worthy, but it’s now a wonderful memory.

    Congrats Liz and Adam!  It looks like you had a fun, personal, and lovely day.

    •  One of my boys cuddling and watching a cartoon while the other is squirming and kicking in my belly. Quality, post-nap time with both :)
       I love that I finally have a gallery wall to display some of my favorite prints, photos, and watercolors. I broke ours into two mini-gallery walls on both sides of the tv to take the focus away from it. Hung some of our watercolors that we collect on our travels (NYC and Venice representing on this side), a portrait of me from my wedding day from @dianebronstein, a painting done by a family friend as a wedding gift, wedding photos by @jenroper, and a print sent by @lovelydetails. And don't forget that swoon-worthy photograph of Paris (another honeymoon spot) by @hazelnutphoto. Giving one away on the blog (link in profile - 2 posts down) so hurry and enter!
