A handmade Vermont wedding: Tamera + Sean

categories Real Weddings

We have a sweet, woodsy wedding for you all today. And as a bonus, we’re double featuring with A Practical Wedding where Tamera is appearing as part of Meg’s wedding graduate series.

Nearly every bit was done by their family and friends, from building out the deck and bar on the land to making the dresses and food and cakes. It’s a serious handmade Vermont wedding. With lots and lots of pretty details. Like vintage letter tiles strung up as garland:

Her dress? She made it. Herself. 3 weeks before the wedding.

Aww, look at that little guy all dressed up with his flag and everything!

Tamera’s mom and aunt made every bit of food. And who doesn’t love a St. Germain cocktail to kick off a party? (If you’ve never had one, you most certainly need to!). And her brother made the bar! This is one very crafty family.

Such pretty invites! You can see the a whole post dedicated to their awesomeness, (they came wrapped in custom made wooden boxes), on Tamera’s blog.

Congrats Tamera and Sean! Thanks so much for sharing with us. Your day was just gorgeous and clearly such an earnest reflection of you two!

Don’t forget to pop over to APW to read Tamera’s open letter to her wedding. Good stuff. Plus Tamera has her own photo recap posted on her blog as well.
