amanda and aj

Amanda and Ajs wedding was filled with diy projects that couldn't have been sweeter. Amanda has an eye for detail that started at the arbor where guests walked in and ended as they left at the end of the evening. Everything coordinated down to the smallest detail. It was obviously a family affair from her Dad building the fence dividers, friends putting together the flowers to her Mom overseeing everything to make sure it was what Amanda had envisioned.


The shutters were really perfect in their simplicity. Loved the flowers hung casually on them

Amanda made these pom poms out of pattern paper, coffee liners and tissue paper. They were connected with buttons strung on twine. So cute!
The favor stand with a chalkboard sign
The flower on Amandas dress was copied on the guest book and flowergirl pail. The corrugated tin on the guest book was copied on the drink tags.


Our antique coke bottle box used to hold the signature drink


a sign made by the brides aunt

loved the vintage suitcase for cards
The wooden fences were made by the brides father and visually separated the ceremony site from the reception
The cakes were arranged on white cakeplates which were later used as thank you's for the many friends who helped out. If you look closely, you can see the buttons decorating the cakes which were made out of marizapan

The table settings were a compliation of old books, vintage candlesticks, old wood box frames filled with simple white flowers and their table numbers were done on corrugated paper tied with strips of lace
The pathway was lined with brown paper luminarias to light the way home for their guests.
