• {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!

    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.

       There's no buddy like a brother. So grateful for these two (and the third one joining soon), for moments like these, and that they will always have each other. #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin #grateful #brudders
