Real Wedding – Summer DIY InspirationSeptember 9, 2013
Labor day is past us but it still feels like summer in North Carolina, so it felt appropriate to share this adorable DIY wedding today! Robin and Lee were married last summer on a sheep farm in California and they truly took DIY to a new level. The bride handmade just about everything you see here, with the exception of the adorable pinwheels which were purchased from BHLDN. Robin made the table numbers using a Cricut machine and different patterns of blue and red paper, that were then clipped to clothespins and inserted into the covers of old books found at garage sales, thrift stores, and antique fairs. The fabric boutonnieres were all hand crafted by the bride and her maid of honor, who also made the gorgeous cupcakes! And the wedding cake itself? Handmade by the bride’s sister-in-law.
The door with the seating arrangements was found at an antique store, and the bouquets were made by a family friend after she and the bride visited the Sacramento flower market together and chose the flowers. Another family friends built the dance floor from scratch and spray-painted the heart in the middle (love that). Truly a labor of love from all their family and friends! Thanks to Deborah Huber for sending along these great images.
