Handmade Rustic Purple And Gray Wedding

Our next wedding is one of those awe inspiring weddings. Filled with rustic details and thoughtful touches, and almost everything was handmade either by the bride or her friends. Who doesn’t love when all the details at a wedding are handmade? Not only does it become truly a labor of love, but it is incredibly inspiring. Filling us with ideas, and the hope that we can also create something equally as stunning.

We know you’re going to love so many things about Ashley and Geoffrey’s handmade rustic purple and gray wedding, especially the bridesmaid and groomsman gifts. The couple used a tree theme throughout the wedding that was perfect for the outdoor rustic wedding venue Oak Canyon Nature Center. As usual, there is a full gallery of images to see all beautifully photographed by Candice Benjamin Photography.

Ashley not only gave her bridesmaids one of our personal wedding totes as a gift, but she also used our free printables for their wedding monogram. They were used on their wedding invites, personalized cookies and well wishes cards for the bride and the groom.

From The Bride:
 I loved that everything was handmade. A few things were bought from Etsy but the signs for the ceremony, cards at the table, decorations for the sweetheart table, ring bearer pillow and so much more was made by the bride or friends. The flowers were arranged by family friends, the bride’s dad made the facade to go in front of the bar and mason jars were donated by family friends.

It made all those little details so much more special. Plus, we get to keep all those items and find new ways to use them in our home to remind us of our wedding. If you are going to have a DIY wedding start early by jotting down ideas and keeping pictures of things you would like. Starting early allows you to scope out the best prices to make your ideas come to life. Also, at least one week before the wedding, if not two, stop all your DIY and just focus on relaxing and having a good time.

Ashley and Geoffrey placed cards for guests to write well wishes on each table. They used our free printable Floral Heart Monogram and our Circle Love Custom Monogram. They were stacked on each table and wrapped in twine, and guest placed them in this customized wood box.

Ashley and Geoffrey’s sweetheart table was decked out with a custom burlap sign, Mr. And Mrs. Forks, monogram wood vase and custom wood inspired pilsner glasses. Be sure not to miss their customized wedding cookies using our free monogram.

Be sure to check out  Ashley and Geoffrey’s day of edit from Jakfoto Films. We really do love seeing all the details up close.

    Where were the bridesmaid dresses from? Was anyone able to answer, I’ve been looking for dresses everywhere

  14. -100. Ashley Stevens says:

    The bridesmaid dresses are by Bill Levkof. I ordered them from The Wedding Day in Fountain Valley. Hope that helps!

    Thanks for your help, your wedding was beautiful

  16. -100. Sasha says:

    Where did you get the Bridesmaid dresses from? I’m in love!

  17. -100. Sasha says:

    oops, I should have read the comments first. Nevermind! lol

  18. -100. Alison says:

    Where did you get the burlap that you wrapped the mason jar in?

  19. -100. Ashley Stevens says:

    The burlap on the mason jars (with the stripes) was from an antique store. It is actually burlap straps used in upholstery of furniture. All of the other burlap used throughout the wedding was bought in the fabric district of L.A.

    Where was your reception? Everything looks amazing!

    Michael Kors Outlet is acting as a job. michael kors outlet led
    Seattle with 18 points in 29 minutes, but only the outlandishly
    morbid could have expected the horrific extent of Oden’s knee problems. Yes,” Basketball Never Stops” is a cute marketing slogan and twitter hashtag, but it’s also borderline superstition.
    Those supportive comments were for Jason Collins,
    the first time in franchise history.

  22. -100. Emma says:

    Where did you get the wedding card box from? I’m trying to look for a good wooden box painted purple but there isn’t anywhere else that has one which looks as great as this box does. Please let me know. Thank you!

    Congratulations on your union :)
