Jennifer and Russ held a gorgeous almost-totally-DIYed wedding at Jennifer's parent's farm in Ocala, FL. After their outdoor ceremony under a giant tree, they had a reception with a bourbon bar, alcoholic cupcakes, and a s'mores pit!

You'll love this picnic-themed ceremony (with picnic basket aisle decor!) in a 100-year-old hall in a small town that definitely isn't used to an offbeat wedding. The bride's theater production talents and their mutual musician pals made the day extra special with personal touches. And although the bride's short dress with pockets is adorable, the satin-lined pockets proved to be a menace before the ceremony!
This couple was able to pull off some amazing handcrafted decor, a full self-catered buffet, a FABULOUS handmade dress (by the bride!), and even some home-grown entertainment all on a budget and with tons of style. This intimate wedding was also planned from across the country, so we know it took some serious coordination.
After two years of life and natural disasters delaying the wedding, these hunter/gatherers finally tied the knot at their own gorgeous home in Nova Scotia. With their own foliage (and some lingerie!) as decor, a doggie ring bearer, a fake roadkill-style menu, an actual seafood dinner, and the kissy-face couple themselves, I don't even know what you'll love most. Let's just go with everything!
Take tons of music, a musical seating chart, favorite band centerpieces, an amazing wine bar, and an awesome cake decorated with the family in their pajamas and you've got this blended family wedding. There's also a really touching memorial to the bride's mother who died on 9/11 — totally tear-worthy.
This couple wanted a super fun party at a bar with karaoke, a Bloody Mary bar, and even a unity tiki torch. They may have had to change their venue at the last moment, but with the help of friends, it was even better than expected. And if they were worried about guests being too shy to sing karaoke, boy were they wrong!
A gearhead groom and a non-traditional bride find common ground with a vintage-style bus to transport their guests from a sweet garden tea to a raucous bar after party. They totally recommend using alternative "non-wedding" vendors and finding DIY projects online, and it worked for them!
