DIY Wedding | Tim + Laura

Share this project

“Laura and Tim were one of my favorite couples to photograph! Aside from their gorgeous wedding, they are hilarious and so much fun. They are the type of couple who are always up to something and have endless inside jokes and sarcastic commentary. Pretty much my favorite type of client. I even had to put my camera down a few times, I was laughing so hard during the portrait session. They created a wedding that is very personal and had such a unique feel. They even incorporated elements from her culture and their love of beers into the d├ęcor. The details included fun bright colors, with lots of pattern and contrast.” –Rachel Robertson Photography

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

It would have to be the moment when my dad gave me away. Tim and him shared a special embrace that made me feel that both of them truly loved me and my dad was giving me away to a man that has just as much love as my dad has for me.

What did you DIY for your wedding?

My dad drew the invitations and Tim designed the font. We printed and stamped all the table thank you cards. The chalkboard frames for the tables and the Dr. Seuss frame were also handmade but not by us. We made our own guest signing book from pictures of our relationship vs doing a photo shoot one. We stained and made the 6-5-13 sign and also used that sign original for our save the date cards. There is a frame with two cheap rings from vegas that says fake it till you make it… I made that from our fake rings we got in Vegas. We came back home and told people we got married. One of our friends believed us for 3 years. I water colored the picture on the sign table from a picture from our engaement (same picture on our invite). We sanded down and rusted the lanterns. And lastly, we made beer vases for our table centerpieces each table was named after a craft beer.

Something old, new, borrowed and blue?

Yes! New was my dress. Blue were my shoes and a necklaces that my maid of honor gave me. Old was a pearl bracelet from Tim’s mom. And I forget about the borrowed part :)

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

You only get to do it once so make sure you enjoy the process. Get everything you want because you don’t want to look back and say I wish I would have had… – Laura, the bride
