Don't miss the faux hawk at this ultra beautiful DIYed wedding

Ria and Will are both tax lawyers so their wedding day was infused with lawyer jokes, beginning with their hashtag, #filingjointly. Ria also has a daring but soft side, so her hair was swept up in an amazing faux-hawk. She finished the look with her signature hot pink lipstick and vintage jewelry.

Ria went wild with DIY including the cake (a spice cake with cream cheese icing!), handcrafted invitations, dried floral bouquets, and amazing centerpieces. She painted every wooden flower and picked every vintage tea cup for the tables. It was an event full of love, humor, and tons of artistry.

This art museum wedding was a celebration of outsider art, craftiness, and veggie comfort food

Taylor and Jade chose the American Visionary Art Museum as their venue because it's a space they personally love, and they appreciate that it features outsider art. And of course, throughout the celebration, guests could wander the museum and look at the art. Bonus for art lovers! To up the craftiness game, Jade sewed her entire wedding outfit! Their decor was also heavily DIYed and included succulents and sprigs of Eucalyptus.

For favors, they gave out prints of a film photograph Taylor had taken at one of their favorite spots. This wedding just screams sincerity and we can't get enough of it…
