DIY Kentucky Shaker Wedding

Love Bird Style sent over this super cute DIY Kentucky Shaker Wedding with some lovely handmade details. Basically everything from the programs to the hankies – all the way down to the pies – all diy projects.  Read on to hear more from the bride and enjoy these super cute photos take by Love is a big deal. By the way, how cute are the first look photos below…pretty darn cute. See more lovely photos in the full wedding gallery.

From Morgan, the bride:
The wedding programs were made by hand by my matron-of-honor.  They matched the airplanes that we tossed at the end of the ceremony, during our procession.  We wanted to incorporate Andrew’s career without overdoing the “pilot” theme.  After we picked the style of plane we wanted to create, it only took a few days of folding and gluing to have them complete!

Of course the biggest task was cutting all the fabric for the streamers.  I was lucky enough to find most of the fabric in clearance bins at local fabric shops.  I turned my parents dinning room into the fabric room.  The great thing about making the streamers was that they didn’t have to be perfect.  We didn’t worry about fraying edges since that just added to the homespun aesthetic. My goal was to create something one-of-a-kind and custom to our special day. The picture frames were spray painted and hung with airplane garland around the pie table. All the signs were handmade.  We also made the striped napkins out of fabric.
