“We had the pleasure of photographing those young love birds at one of our favorite locations, the Lange Farm in Dade City Florida. Stacey and Michael were high school sweet hearts and have been inseparable for years. With their youthful energy and passion, together the two of them did much of their wedding DIY. Stacey and her friends even put together their own silk flowers and built a photo booth themselves for their guests to enjoy during the reception. They thought of everything to a T and really pulled of a beautiful day.” –Lifelong Studios
What is your favorite wedding day memory?
I think my favorite wedding day memory would have to be our vows. Neither of us could spit them out correctly no matter how hard we tried. We had all of our guests laughing!
What did you DIY for your wedding?
Almost everything for our wedding was DIY! The doors I walked through at our ceremony, the pearl backdrop at our photo booth and all of the signs were handwritten by myself. My mother helped me with everything, as well. Our table centerpieces we’re DIY including the table runners, the pearls and flower jars, table numbers and our engagement pictures inside the picture frames. I wrote out the seating chart on doilies and hung them from a large picture frame and made our koozie favors with my cricut machine. I also made the bridesmaids bouquets myself!
Did you have a something old, new, borrowed and blue?
I actually did not!
Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?
The stress is all worth it in the end. My wedding day was absolutely perfect and yours will be too! -Stacey, the bride
