Southern Vintage Arizona DIY Wedding

Before we dive into this warm and inviting DIY wedding from Marianne Wilson Photography,  you must understand that it took an entire year for the couple to create their dream day. They both were hands-on spending a ton of time in antique stores looking for that perfect something to create an eclectic yet budget friendly wedding.

One amazing idea was the do-it-yourself band. They  gathered some of their most talented musician friends to create a super band. The bride goes into full detail and explains so much more here. Of course, there are so many more photos that you have to see in the full wedding gallery.

The bride’s bouquet is quite lovely. A lotus flower pod with bright yellow billy balls. Definitely one to keep for the inspiration board.

They wanted to keep our guests as refreshed as possible, but at the same time give them a little something extra. So the couple shipped in some original Coca-Cola from south of the border and let them sit on ice. Now that is what we call cool.
