• DIY Barn Wedding in Minnesota: Chelsea & Jon

    DIY Wedding by Expressions Photography Today’s wedding is infused with so much personality and love that it is sure to inspire you to be a DIY bride too. Chelsea got creative in making her sure their wedding reflected who they are as a couple, and did it in ways to keep costs down.  And she kept it all cohesive, which is so important when you a lot of DIY projects.

    DIY Wedding by Expressions PhotographyBest piece of advice? Whenever the planning becomes not fun, take a break and go on a date where you promise not to talk about anything wedding related.

    How did Chelsea keep her wedding budget-friendly? Be creative! Look outside of typical “wedding” resources. I found that if there was anything advertised as “wedding” related, it typically meant expensive. Thrift! Utilize the people around you and their talents.

    DIY Wedding by Expressions Photography Basically our wedding was an expression of what our future home together would be. We love inviting people into it, to relax and enjoy themselves and that’s what our day was about. We wanted it to reflect our personalities, our faith, and our love. Through the antiques and special touches, our home was transported to Northfield, MN to welcome our guests in. Anybody could tell you right when they arrived whose wedding this was and that was a beautiful thing.

    I really love that you feel like you know this couple by seeing their wedding – it’s totally a sign that you made it YOU.  And the color palette and rustic touches make it feel so homey and fun – like a big family picnic wedding!

    •  Gallery wall strategizing on my new blue ombre shag rug (Charlie calls it the ocean ) It's the last thing to do before the nursery is totally done! Sharing another peek of the rug on Monday and having a little giveaway from @luluandgeorgia so stay tuned. (Sources tagged)
       Even when I actually sleep through the night (which is rare these days) I can't sleep in because I'm too uncomfortable to stay in bed. Taking advantage of a cool morning and sleeping Charlie and husband to have a quiet morning alone, windows open and curled up with my new book and blanky. It's nice, but I'd rather be sleeping. #37weeks #babyfredrickpartdeux
