Glamorous Barn Wedding

Since they majority of their budget was spent on their photographer, Danielle Capito and the venue Dana Powers House. Our next couple decided to embark on the great journey of the good ol’ DIY plan. Little did they realize how fun and meaningful it would make the process. You can read all about the handmade projects from the bride by clicking here.

A do-it-yourself wedding project we particullary like from the bride:

Wine Bottle GuestBook – Used 5 wine bottles from important dates in our relationship (our engagement, first bottle of wine together, birthdays, etc.). Cleaned them out and made personalized labels to match the wedding decor. Each label represented a future anniversary year (1 year, 5year, 10year, 25 years, 35 years) and had a wine quote on it. Each guest wrote a note or wish and dropped it in the year of their choice. We will open each bottle on that labeled year to read notes from our guests at the wedding to celebrate our anniversaries.

    Thank you thank you for this feature!! This was one of my favorite 2011 weddings and I’m so happy to see it up for the wedding world to see :)

  10. This goes to show that you can do whatever you want with your wedding. Just because you get married in a barn doesn’t mean you have to go all out rustic. You can do glamorous and elegant too!

  11. -100. Melissa says:

    This wedding is just awe-inspiring. I love all the rustic, but still elegant and sophisticated details!

  12. -100. Tiffany Medrano says:

    So perfect and beautiful!

    Wonderful to be part of this Wedding Day – They worked hard for weeks to bring it all together on a budget – a lesson to be learned here – proud Grandma & Grandpa

    having been in the industry a long time, I find it heartwarmimg when bride & grooms make things for themselves rather than just buying everything.

  15. Love all the DIY details-just shows each couple can prioritize & spend a lot on one area of their wedding and still make it work with the rest of their budget!

  16. -100. Jocelyn Mabery says:

    Thank you so much for featuring us! We were so blessed to have such a wonderful photographer to capture all of our details and moments. You really can have a glamourous wedding on a budget! And it’s always better when you do-it-yourself!!! :) Thanks everyone! xoxo, the bride.

    Oh my goodness! I love everything about this wedding! Just beautiful!

  18. fierce shoes! very 2000s cinderella :)

  19. Love every single detail… everything looks perfect!

  20. We’re convinced the Dana Powers House is one of the best locations for barn wedding photography in the country. We’d do anything to shoot a wedding there. Lovely work, and we’re particularly keen on reading about a couple that valued their wedding photography enough to spend a significant part of their budget on it. Go you two!

    Absolutely gorgeous beginning to end.

  22. -100. Tori says:
