Jessica & John – DIY Vegas Wedding
May 12, 2010
Stand by for Las Vegas awesome – part deux! Jessica & John’s rockabilly diy fest. of a wedding makes me happieeee indeed. Not only does Jessica look ridiculously haaawt in her
Oleg Cassini dress and homemade jacket but the whole affair was so personal and diy fabulous – who said Vegas wedding were tacky?
Jessica spent a lot of time getting her diy projects just right. She made everything from the decor to the flowers, from the gift bags to the table runners and photo booth. Here is a run down of the whole shebang…
♥ Decorations were ordered from www.bulkpartysupplies.com (garlands and all the balls etc. also the bells to make the flowers.)
♥ Centerpieces were a conglomeration of found items from many places including tons of hand made paper flowers
(faux flowers in bases were from www.afloral.com)
♥ Take away bags were hand stamped and filled with fun goodies from all over (including homemade Hawaiian lollypops!)
♥ Table runners and Photo-Booth drape were hand stiched from fabric found at a local fabric store.
♥ Gift sign painting and seating chart were put together by me (John)
♥ Candy Bar Design/candy/jars etc were by Jessica too, including the lollypop holders etc.
Thanks to the amazing Carina & Amanda for sharing this wedding with us today

1950s, Rockabilly and Polkadot Wedding: Carrie & Neil
March 12, 2014
Carrie and Neil had a red and white wedding with rockabilly and polka dot touches! The day was held at Highbury Hall in Birmingham and was full of DIY décor. "We would like to think we were far more relaxed, friendly and laid-back than other wedding we have been to", began the bride. "So many weddings we have been to seem so stiff and uptight as a whole. We wanted a fun party atmosphere with a live band playing lots rockabilly, plenty of food for people to stuff their faces, and encouraged dancing until your feet dropped off. The word 'formal' never entered our vocabulary."

Welcome to Elodie & Alexis' gorgeous French wedding. If you loved their engagement shoot this morning, then their nuptials are gonna blow your socks off!

Alexis picked all the flowers and pulled together a bouquet of wheat for Elodie to carry down the aisle.
