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.

Harvest Inspired Colorado Wedding

In order to commemorate this Halloween, we thought we would throw a little fall wedding inspiration your way this holiday. Adrienne & Eric’s Colorado wedding has some splendid DIY touches and is filled with all of our favorite autumn colors. Read on to learn how they conquered their fall DIY wedding, captured by Colorado wedding photographers Eric & Moriah Photography.

Be sure to see the entire wedding gallery by clicking here.

From Adrienne, The Bride:

I love autumn and wanted the decoration and flowers to resemble fall colors with dried grasses, pumpkins and fall foliage. Eric’s mother found large pumpkins she hollowed out and filled with water, then placed heart shaped floating candles in them, she also got mini pumpkins we used as place card holders, Eric’s sister made all the name tags attached to the mini pumpkins with pins. We found Martha Stewart craft punches of oak, maple and aspen leaves and punched out of fall colored card stock to create fall leaf confetti for the tables. I contacted Palmer Flowers and they made centerpiece wreaths with curly willow, wheat, bear grass and red and green eucalyptus leaves and buds. In the center we had red and orange candles. I wanted a bouquet with lots of texture and color, I had a hand tied bouquet with lotus pods, fiddle fern, coxcomb, Leonidas roses, hypericum berries, flame calla lilies, curly willow, feathers, eucalyptus buds, bear grass and pin cushion protia, all wrapped in ivory satin with chocolate satin crisscrossed ribbon. Eric’s boutonniere had a flame calla lily, feather, and fiddle fern curl.

Malibu Graphic Designer’s Wedding

Jocelyn and Cortney’s wedding was truly a beautiful reflection of a couple that loves California’s beaches and sunshine. Jocelyn designed her own wedding invitations, escort cards, menus, chocolate bar favors, as well as the custom wine labels. She and her husband Cortney made everything so personal through all of their planning! We are loving the simple laid back beach decor and all the lovely small details–especially her Nicole Miller wedding gown. Nicole Miller seems to make the perfect wedding gown for a beach side wedding, don’t you think?

Sweet & Chic Shabby Chic Wedding

Ready for a touching backyard wedding? Napa Valley wedding photographer, Marin Kristine Photography captured this touching wedding.

The wedding took place at the bride’s parents home. They got married underneath a big old cotton wood tree at sunset. The old rickety furniture, desks, dressers, frames, and doors were found around the barn, parents home and grandmas home. Everything was an heirloom from within the family and passed down to celebrate the day. Along with each tea pot, hairbrush, old tin, scale, typewriter and everything else you see.

Napa Valley wedding photographer, Marin Kristine Photography is a preferred vendor and proud sponsor of The Wedding Chicks.

Read on to hear more touching moments to this incredible wedding from Marin Kristine Photography.

The bride designed (and personally made) her bird cake toppers by hand. She personally made the wedding favors of grape jam. Her father made the frames and doorways that they passed under to go into the ceremony and reception sites. The groom’s cousin (Amanda) made the garlands that draped over the doorways, assembled every bouquet, styled the event to perfection, and coordinated the wedding.

Another special, yet tragic unfortunate event that occurred was one of the groomsmen (best friend to the groom) was killed 2 days before the wedding in a car accident. A chair/bouquet was placed at the ceremony site in his honor and in remembrance of him. He was spoken of during the wedding ceremony, and given toasts during the reception.

It was a bittersweet wedding filled with sadness and joy. They remembered him, cried for him, and had moments of silence. It was (in a way) a memorial and wedding at the same time. There were so many moments of joy and laughter as friends came together, just to find moments later tears being shed and hugs exchanged between them all.

Texas Rustic Wedding

Texas weddings always seem to be filled with charm and good old fashioned elegance. Cassie and Sam’s rustic wedding is definitely not an exception. They chose a fantastic Texas venue filled with country flair and rustic charm, The Vista West Ranch.

They chose a romantic and classic color palette of soft pinks, whites and creams. To complement the country feel of the venue, Cassie incorporated rustic touches. The table numbers were brass house numbers placed in the centerpieces and flowers were arranged loosely in vintage glass vessels. Wendee from Lucie’s Events custom designed the distressed window frame “Guest Book” and hung it from one of the amazing trees on Vista West Ranch‘s property.

Shannon Cunningham Photography did an outstanding job of photographing this charming wedding.

The Cutest California DIY Wedding Ever

We have a huge crush on Joy Harmon Prouty of Wildflowers Photography and we are over the moon to share her next wedding with you. If you recall, we actually featured Rochelle and Bobby’s darling engagement shoot. Inspired By Their Love Of Children was the theme of the engagement shoot which naturally carried on to their wedding decor and was actually styled by Wildflowers Photography as well. Talk about a jack of all trades.

Rochelle and Bobby wanted their wedding to be fun, creative, personal, handmade, inexpensive and a theme based upon all things childlike. They also firmly believed that it should be a day celebrating their love for God and their childlike joy in waiting on His timing in bringing the two of them together.

From Wildflowers Photography on the creative touches of the day:

Pinwheels made out of children’s book pages, paper chains, painted cardboard clouds, quilts hanging as backdrops, hundreds of old time candies, paper flowers, chalkboard artwork, cupcakes topped with fruit loops, gummy worms and sprinkles, a dinner catered by an in & out truck, a cotton candy machine, multicolored paper crowns, handmade boutonnieres with kites colored by my Gracie, paper “leaves” cut from an old Cinderella storybook and a lollipops, 20 pairs of converse sneakers and one fantastic hand made swing set.

Santa Barbara Shabby Chic Wedding

Paul Von Rieter always shares ultra fabulous weddings with us. Like this Hollywood Stunner or this MTV star’s wedding. Both amazingly wonderful weddings.

Gianna (one of our super talented coordinators from Chic Celebrations) and Gary dish all of the details on their barn yard wedding. Read on…

“We had another venue already booked, and just out of curiosity stopped into Eucalyptus Lane one weekend. It was love at first sight. Gary and I both wanted something that was a little rustic and a little shabby chic and this was exactly what we envisioned. I wanted lots of whites to lighten the inside of the barn and greens to accent the property’s lush gardens. Jocelyn, at A Beautiful Day Production could almost read my mind, and brought to life what I spent so much time trying to explain. Aged julep cups and birds’ nests exuded the rustic romance Gary and I were looking for. March weather is always tricky so I wanted to make sure guests were covered at the ceremony either way. Fresh lemonade if it was hot and pashminas if it was cold.”

“The ceremony took place in front of the herb garden gates on the property and the reception moved over to the barn. A close friend who is also an ordained minister married us, it was so personal and hilarious. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Von Rieter rocked the photography, the candids from him are so heartwarming and show how happy we all were at that moment. It started to drizzle just as we made our grand entrance.”

Scroll down to read more details from Gianna.

“The menu complimented the venue with tri-tip, jalapeno macaroni and cheese, and warm cornbread. A guest was able to pick up the cake and cupcakes from our favorite Orange County bakery, French’s, the same bakery that did the bride’s parents wedding almost 30 years ago. The drink tables, bars and buffets were made from old barrels and reclaimed doors. Brilliant!”

“And in lieu of a gift table we used an old wheelbarrow. Nicole, who works with me at Chic Celebrations, was incredible. The wedding-planner in me never even had a chance to kick in. I felt like a guest the whole entire night, a rarity. Classic Cuts kept the party going all night, the last dance was Purple Rain by Prince (one of Gary’s favorites) and had every guest singing their heart out. The night was amazing, it truly sparkled. I still have guests tell me that it truly felt like they were in the back woods somewhere in the South. Perfect, exactly what we were going for.”

Eco Friendly Wedding Ideas

Here are some lovely eco friendly wedding tips and tricks form The Good Life Special Events! If you are DIY bride are looking for a more eco conscience wedding ideas you must read on.

Our inspiration: Vintage print press blocks were our primary inspiration for styling this woodsy design in a tropical setting. The intention was to give brides and grooms a glimpse into a sweet and unique woodland wedding soiree in coastal Southern California. By playing with more muted tones of moss, khaki, and chocolate, we kept the look of this luncheon wedding reception lush but brought in bright and cheery pops of color with the gold brocade napkins and bright pink button flowers in our apothecary jars.

DIY: It’s amazing what you can do with moss and twigs! We filled our apothecary jars with cushiony moss and smooth river stones and stood pink button flower branches and twigs upright as if they were growing up from the bottom of the jars. The result was a charming and whimsical centerpiece. We also filled two wooden trays with the same moss and spelled out JOY and LOVE with our vintage print press blocks for an unexpected touch.

Whimsical touches: Momental Designs whipped up some lovely paper goods that emitted that true woodland feeling. With velvet chocolate ribbon, hand painted menus and place cards, and a gorgeous watercolor table number, our bride and groom oohed and aahed at the finishing touches.

The attire: Our gorgeous bride stunned in a vintage gray frock from Queue – we wanted to style her and our groom a little differently to showcase alternative wedding wear options. The ruffles, her sash, and that breathtaking tone were the perfect partner to our groom’s sisal suit from Tommy Bahama.

Using your imagination: When dreaming up your wedding vision, be sure to stay true to you and your fiancè. Draw inspiration from your surroundings; this could be your home, the town you live in, or your favorite place to visit. If you love camping and hiking, pipe in bits of natural settings (like with moss or stones). If you long for the beach, use simple shell accents in your engagement party or reception details. Tying in subtle hints here and there will help to keep your wedding unique and special to you. Use your imagination and get creative with your centerpieces. Sometimes the most beautiful designs are so simple.

Denver Wedding By Karie Mclain

Denver Wedding

Some wonderful green and brown fall ideas from Karie Mclain Photography for you today. Carrie and Ben where married in Beaver Creek Colorado at Saddleridge. High in the mountains under skies of blue, Beaver Creek has the cozy, unhurried feel of an Alpine Village. Sun-bathed patios, rustic cabins in aspen groves, romance in the mountain air. Nestled around an intimate square, it is a world away from the world. What a great outdoors, rustic venue!

Brown and Green Wedding Ideas

As you see Carrie had some cuter than apple pie green wedding shoes and Ben and his groomsman wore Chocolate slip on vans. So cute! The flowers and day of decor look stunning, designed by Plum Sage Flowers. I love the tree stump flower arrangement. Everything ties together effortlessly and matches the venue perfectly. I am sure thanks to Debbie Orwat, from Save the Date Events!

Ranch Wedding Ideas By Heather Kincaid

Ranch Wedding Ideas

Heather Kincaid sent over Raci and Mike’s DIY extravaganza that you are going to love. We all know that a ton of work goes into the preparation and planning of a wedding and any little help is more than appreciated. Lucky for Mike and Raci, family and friends worked together to craft the wedding details and provide the venue. Raci’s Aunt donated her gorgeous ranch for the wedding.

Raci made her flower detail for the hair, found the birdcage for the gift cards at a garage sale and refurbished it, and scavenged yard sales and ebay for all of the bottles and vases for the tables, and I am sure the list goes on and on. You are going to really enjoy the twine and clothespin display between two trees. Raci and Mike hung a bunch of snapshots of them with friends and family over the years. What a great conversation starter!

Mike made the place cards, hand painted signs that were placed around the reception area. He also built the arch for the ceremony with his dad, father-in-law and friends.

A continuation of a country wedding by Allyson Magda Photography






Allyson Magda Photography sent us this lovely country wedding oooozing with charm. Katie and Morgan were married at a darling farmhouse in San Luis Obispo. From the burlap flower sacks lining the isle and other areas, to the “lemonade hour” complete with games, live interactive music, and a community art project, this wedding was one for the books. I am in love with the simple table numbers sweetly filled with grass. The strawberry and blueberry cakes look absolutely delicious. What a great wedding!
