Stone Cold Fox wedding dress  | photo by Michael Radford | 100 Layer Cake

These two lovebirds didn’t have a specific theme in mind when they started planning their fete. But they did have a talented bunch of loved ones who helped to make their big day as gorgeous as it is. With friends pitching in with everything from the coordination to the music to the florals to the officiating, it was a labor of love indeed. Even their photog Michael Radford was an old pal.

Adriana says… It was so nice to have our close friends and family have such huge roles in our day. It honestly just felt like another day with our loved ones. So relaxed.

A bit of advice from the bride: My advice for newly engaged couples is be yourself. Your wedding should be a reflection of you (the bride and the groom) and you only. With the support of our families, Blake and I were able to keep this in mind during our planning process. It was such a rewarding feeling when our guests came up to us to comment on how genuine and true our wedding was. All of our hard work paid off and everyone truly loved our DIY touches.

I love all the beautiful pictures for inspirations you have on your Blog. From the wedding bouquets to the shoes, very pretty! I make personalized wedding hangers for the Brides dress, bridesmaids or even the groom. My shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/HangUpHigh?ref=pr_shop_more and my website is http://www.etsy.com/shop/HangUpHigh?ref=pr_shop_more. I'm sure brides will notice that going the extra little mile on details can make a huge difference.
