This wedding in Calgary channeled the 1970s and all its macrame glory

Retro decor finds, tons of DIYed macrame details, and a '70s-inspired theme were at the center of this wedding's aesthetic. But it was the love that got us in the end. Sweet and meaningful song choices, a sweet first look, and some awesome dance moves swept us away in Shannon and Andy's macrame wedding in Calgary. Don't miss their sweet young daughter in her flower crown, too!

This rad pop-up wedding had glitter, sequins, and huge rainbow mural LOVE

We wanted something small that fit us, but could also include our children and family. We didn't want to just run off to the courthouse. We wanted it to be simple and stress-free. We bounced ideas of locations back and forth. Maggie from Pop! Wed Co. suggested the "LOVE" mural at Blagden Alley. We were in DC for New Years so we checked it out and fell in love with it.

A modern Tuscan black tie wedding with plenty of DIY and style

The theme to our wedding was modern, Tuscan black tie. We had champagne taste on a beer and butter budget. We splurged on the picture perfect venue and catering, but everything else you see was DIY. I hand crafted everything from flowers to centerpieces and signs to decor. They say every wedding has at least one planning nightmare. Mine happened to be the biggest nightmare for me ever. The store I purchased my dress from went BANKRUPT and closed its doors just eight weeks before my wedding!

A dashing self-officiating urban elopement (with a rock star cameo!)

Sheannette and Paul met when she bought a mid-century desk from him via Craigslist! It was basically love at first sight after that.

They ran into a super famous rock star just chilling with his dogs. Let's see the whole stunning display at this self-officiating urban elopement…
