Less creative brides than Monika might have nixed the idea of a ‘tropical boho glam’ wedding in the Oregon countryside. But not this gal. This gal had a vision! Monika says, I have always been drawn to tropical locations and Mexican/bohemian influences. My parents live in the country but have a very tropical pool area, so that sparked the inspiration for our wedding. And whaddya know, Monika totally pulled it off. Just take a look at the photos from Love Lit Wedding Photography

We had quite a few DIY projects. We made tiered chandeliers using crepe paper and PVC pipes, hundreds of paper tassels using tissue paper, the wood and light “BEST DAY EVER” sign, and half of the centerpieces which were filled with water, goldfish, and floating plants. In retrospect, I would have started our DIY projects earlier. Near the end we were having wedding crafting parties three times a week!

Ombre pink wedding dress | Photo by Cory Ryan | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=71871

Wow, one look at that amaze dip-dyed DVF wedding dress and you can pretty much bet this wedding is going to be fun! Then you see that rad geometric invitation suite, and you’re like yep—fun is right. Allison says, The inspiration started with the print on our invites (which was a quilt pattern by our good friend Alyson Fox) and the hot pink ombre of my dress. Those two elements helped guide every decision that I made. The wedding was relaxed and ended with an awesome dance party set to great music—something that really felt like us. Cory Ryan was there to capture it all.

The pretty ceremony backdrop doubled as a photo booth backdrop later on. Smart!

Some advice from the bride: In retrospect, I would have cut myself off from Pinterest MUCH sooner. As valuable as it is for planning and inspiration, I found it to be more of a stressor as the day approached. Also, throw out your preconceived notions of what a wedding should be and go with what feels like you. For example, I had moments of doubt worrying that my dress wasn’t “bridal” enough but in the end it was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t imagine myself in anything else.

See those candles? All DIY. Allison + Shun printed the quilt pattern on vellum paper, and then wrapped it around simple dollar store candles to create a nice pop of pattern on the tables.
