Adam + Sarah’s wedding is the stuff boho dreams are made of: ivory lace, a bright pop of fuchsia flowers, dreamy photos by Studio Castillero, and a ceremony set in a rustic, untouched oak grove. If you ask us, it was well worth the effort these two put in to transform the empty piece of land where their wedding was held into a workable venue. From cutting in paths and leveling the reception space to actually building the benches for the ceremony seating (pretty impressive, yes?), it was quite the endeavor. Kudos to these two for really taking DIY to the next level!
The flower garlands strung in the trees were actually made from egg crates. So cool!
A money saving tip from Sarah: Our floral designer was so great in working with us to create three centerpiece options that we randomly dispersed, so we could have the really expensive ones that we wanted on some of the tables, but not all. She also suggested large entry arrangements for the ceremony instead of florals flanking the entire aisle.
More good planning advice from Sarah: Make to-do lists. It feels great to cross things off!
Thanks Adam + Sarah, for the major DIY inspiration!
