I am SO happy to finally be sharing this unbelievably gorgeous DIY wedding of David + Tiffany!!! You see, this wedding is very dear to my heart because me and the hubs met this darling couple the night they got engaged! Let me tell you the story… it was my birthday weekend and we were in Catalina celebrating, at this point we were at our favorite hotel – relaxing and drinking by the fire with other guests. We had already been told to keep it down by the management so clearly we were all having a good time… when Tiffany and David walked up. She said “I told him, I just have to go tell the fire pit people! …we just got engaged!!!!!” …and so of course we all screamed with joy for this complete stranger! Again, we got told to pipe down but how could we be quiet with such wonderful news! So the night went on and we got to know each other.. the next day, the hubs took a few shots of them to celebrate their weekend – and the rest is history. It was meant to be that this lovely couple met their wedding photographer, the night they got engaged! Tiffany and her ‘dream team’ did such a gorgeous job with all the DIY elements of the wedding… she’s a crafting rock star! And how about that dress, breathtaking right?! Enjoy… xoxo, Jen
What is your favorite wedding day memory?
“I can’t imagine trying to narrow down just one favorite memory from what we reference as the BEST DAY EVER, however our theme was ‘love sweet love’ and oh boy was the love felt all day long!!! My groom and I found so much joy in knowing all of our closet friends and family members were all together celebrating us and very excited to be apart of such an epic day. The atmosphere was just lovely…
What did you DIY for your wedding?
..I DIY-ed everything! :) My wonderful bridesmaids, family, and friends helped us every step of the way. I truly had a “Dream Team”, we crafted throughout the entire planning process. Which made this experience extra special and memorable!! The DIY projects started right from the beginning with sweet wooden boxes that I created for the lovely ladies in my bridal party which were filled with memorable photos and a love letter & homemade vintage postcards made for the groomsman created to let them know it would be an honor to have them apart of our big day! From the invites to the decor, from the favors to the flowers. Our “Dream Team” of family & friends did it all. Everything had a touch of DIY-love! It was epic. We wouldn’t have changed a thing…
Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?
..To remember that it all goes SO fast. It truly does, especially one your dress is on. Slow down and as impossible as it may seem… relax. Enjoy your planing time, your family, your friends, and your handsome groom! The sweet gatherings and the support you have from the wonderful people who surround you and your fiancé. It is such a lovely season of life that is truly magical. David and myself find ourselves amazed looking back on it all.” – Tiffany, the bride
