DIY Chicago wedding: Brandon + Abby
Like lots of couples, these lovebirds were on a budget. (We feel ya, Brandon + Abby.) But that didn’t stop them from having the wedding of their dreams. These two embraced every opportunity to come up with creative yet thrifty ways to give their big day the playful vintage vibe they desired (including crafting their hearts out for weeks before the wedding and letting their loved ones pitch in too). T&C Photographie was there to capture all the sweet moments and DIY details.
Abby saved some major cash by picking up all the flowers at Whole Foods and a local farmers market. They have a rustic, wildflower vibe and cost a fraction of the price of most wedding flowers.
Abby + Brandon’s invitation invited guests to “a casual, colorful, urban-rustic, jubilant celebration of New Creation. Crying discouraged. Tacos included.” Love that!
That just took DIY to a whole awesome, new level. Congrats Abby + Brandon!
