We are suckers for a DIY bride and Tessa is no exception. She literally did everything herself. Tessa wanted a shabby chic theme, and she executed perfectly. The reception was located right in the countryside featuring acres rolling hills all around. Everything Tessa used for her wedding decor was vintage, even the plates were found at an old thrift store. She even thought to have the cake by a mirror and have it read always backwards so that it read correctly in the reflection. They did not have a typical reception, no dancing or anything of the sorts, just hanging out and having fun! Enjoy this shabby chic wedding from Amanda Basteen Photography.
