Reno, Nevada Handmade Wedding

Let’s start out our Monday right with a, seriously cute handmade wedding from Reno, Nevada Photographer Courtney Wilson Photography.

You are going to love all the details made with love from Cindy, the bride, who personalized her wedding with her passion for ‘from scratch’ creations and took DIY to a whole new level. The majority of the desserts and the favors are from scratch, as well as most of the decorations. Sit back relax and enjoy this handmade extravaganza and be sure to read Cindy’s blog, Hungry Girl Porvida. She has some tasty treats going on.

From Cindy, the bride on her homemade wedding adventure

With the help of my fabulous friends and family, I was able to do so much DIY! I really think that the hands-on aspect of this really made the day and all of the details that much more special. Most of the decor was hand-made, some was thrifted, and some things were items that we have in our home. We literally sewed yards and yards of fabric flags, not to mention the bow ties for all of the guys. Baking the desserts was really the only option for me, I not only felt like I had to but I really, really wanted to! Most of my family and friends know about my blog and many haven’t tried anything that I’ve made, so this was really a time for me to share with them. A lot of people told me that I would be overwhelmed by all the tasks I took on, and though it was a whirlwind of baking, crafting, canning, and sewing in the weeks and days before the wedding, I really wouldn’t have it any other way.
