Real wedding: Russell + Bethany

December 2, 2010

Such a pretty wedding to share with you guys today! Bethany & Russell‘s wedding is pure DIY madness. Seriously, nearly everything was designed, crafted and baked by the bride, groom, or friends & family. Plus it’s got a big helping vintage and just a dash of natural beauty via the great outdoors, pretty gold sequins, and other shiny things… doesn’t that sound amazing? The photos (especially the ones by the stream!), by James Moes are beautiful.

A pre-wedding picnic photoshoot by the stream? Yes, please! These photos turned out so perfect, what a quaint little spot away from it all… we could spend an entire day there! Yes, it’s kind of photoshoot-y, but they surely had such a perfect time alone together before the party started.

Making good use of the lush moss-covered trees by hanging old wedding photos of  family… a brilliant use of their surroundings and a sweet nod to their heritage.

This pie, cake and tart-filled table is dreamy, just the way a dessert table should be.

Vintage postcards and other fabulous prints strung up on colored string for a beautiful yet simple DIY project.

Stylish, fun, gorgeous, and memorable – the perfect wedding recipe!  Congrats, Bethany & Russell!
