Florals make the best first impression, don't you think? These caught my eye and I just can't stop staring! This is a wedding filled to the gills with personal touches and plenty of DIY projects.
Your Special DIY Projects:
The entire event was based on what we and our family + friends could do ourselves, so every aspect was DIY to some degree. For example... in each invitation we mailed out, we enclosed a small sketchbook and asked guests to fill it with memories, advice, wisdom, photos, etc and then bring it with them to the wedding to become part of a "library" that we can keep forever. We both agree, though, that the altar was the most special project we put together for the event. We're both architects, so utilizing reclaimed materials in a unique way helped us put a very personal touch to the ceremony.
Favorite memory of the day:
Brett's favorite memory is looking out at the guests during the ceremony and seeing everyone wearing the colorful sunglasses we provided -- even the grandmothers had on hot pink and lime green glasses... priceless! My favorite memory was the end of the night, when everyone really cut loose and sang their hearts out to Bohemian Rhapsody with us. Really can't top that in my mind!
Don't be afraid to call on your friends to offer their talents. Having those extra personal touches are exactly what made our wedding so special and memorable to us! And you never know, you might stumble upon a friend with at 1963 Plymouth Fury to drive off in!
