Inspiration for your road to the altar

Real Wedding: Winter Park, Florida

June 28, 2010


Dayna and Ian’s wedding is such a perfect way to start off the week – you are going to love all the DIY details! The bride and groom are both so stylish and they each infused their personalities into the event in different and meaningful ways. Dayna personally purchased or made nearly every detail herself, relying heavily on Etsy, Craigslist, thrifting and local antique shops. I love that so many of her details can be achieved on a budget – the ladders and lighting for the ceremony, the hand sewn table numbers and the adorable table assignments (hanging on an old window, nonetheless)!

Ian is wearing his father’s suit from the 70′s that he had altered for the wedding. And since he brews beer as a hobby, he also created a few different ales for the wedding (that is the large white box with the taps you see pictured below). The couple gave out CD’s in personalized covers as favors and I think it is lovely how they carried the theme of “You & Me, It’s Love” throughout the event.

    Love this wedding! We looked at the Farmer's Market for our reception- it's such a neat venue- but ultimately decided on some place else. Love love all the details!

    Aaaw!! We got married at the Farmers Market last year! Nowhere near as glamorous as this, but it was a surprise wedding that we planned in 6 weeks, so I think we did well =)

    @Dana your creations are so beautiful! I was wondering where her necklace was from when I saw this wedding a week ago.

    I'm a sucker for buttons on paper :)
