This gorgeous wedding was DIY to the extreme! Megan and Elijah tied the knot at an outdoor ceremony that was followed by picnic-style reception. The bride’s talented family pitched in by creating much of the decor and details to give this couple a wedding that was as unique and wonderful as they are. Check out more details from this colorful DIY backyard wedding in the full gallery here, all fantastically photographed by THE LEEKERS.

From the Bride:
Our wedding was a true labor of LOVE! We are blessed to have such talented family who were all so willing to help and create what was truly the best day ever!!

One of the bride’s aunts created beautiful flower arrangements using flowers from her own garden while another aunt, Sheri McCulley Studio, designed the amazing cut out invitations. Everyone in Megan’s family helped with decorating the venue.Megan and Elijah were married outdoors at sunset surrounded by a small group of family and close friends. The ceremony was small and cozy with their guests sitting on benches draped in colorful quilts. As the newlyweds walked back down the aisle they were showered in rainbow sprinkles — a truly spectacular exit.

Streamers and white twinkle lights swayed in the breeze at Megan and Elijah’s picnic-themed reception. More colorful quilts were used to cover the tables, each decorated with a single mason jar filled with wildflowers and some small votive candles.

Each guest received a jar of homemade jam crafted by the bride’s cousin for their wedding favor. While Megan and Elijah did have a wedding cake, but kept it small with a cute vintage cake topper. The main dessert attraction was the table full of pies in every flavor from The Ridge Antique Cafe. Each pie sat on a log cross-section and was labeled with it’s flavor — so cute!

  7. Its like you read my mind!
    You appear to understand a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it
    or something. I think that you
    simply can do with a few % to pressure the message house a bit, however other than that,
    this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  8. Greetings! I’ve been reading your website for a long
    time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Huffman Texas!

    In fact, getting the rioght plumbers anywhere is a tough job.

    Youu will need liaqbility insurance in the amount
    of $100,000 for bodily injury and $25,000 for property damage.
    You’ll find that there are so many web directories that you can use and you just hav
    to know hoow to utilize these sites efficiently.

    A humbucker pickup is two single coil pickups wired in series to cancel out the hum which comes from stray electromagnetic interferences.
    That said, in order to make awesome rhythm guitar riffs, you
    only reallly need a few notes at most. Creating music with
    your hands is a wonderful skill.

    Hey, beautiful wedding! How did you manage the lighthing? I can’t tell from the picture? Was it just poles holding the lights? And what kind of lights? We are having a having a backyard wedding, and would like to have the lights idea as well.
