Images: The Happy Couple
Chrissy & Kristy were DREAM CLIENTS. Super rad, super organized, looking for DIY projects, OH AND MY NEIGHBORS. I won’t forget their hilarious inquiry email to me that sheepishly fessed up that they had stalked me (just a little) and found that we were actually neighbors! It made planning meetings and consults SO easy (I literally walked across an alley). They wanted a FUN wedding that had lots of DIY projects and lots of colors. Naturally Glen Echo Park was the perfect venue for their day and they incorporated SO many personalized details.
My favorite might have been how much thought they put into the wine and beer served at the wedding. Their ceremony included a beer pouring ceremony and their reception included the COOLEST DIY pallet beer service counter ever. This one is PICTURE heavy so I am warning you there, but it was nearly impossible to narrow down a smaller subset of the images I was given! Enjoy.
From the brides:
It was all about bringing our family and friends together for the first time and just making it a great party. We kept it casual and even got school buses to transport guest to and from the venue.
We went with shades of teal and turquoise with some pops of red for our color scheme to really tie everything together. We wanted to include a lot of elements to reflect who we are, both individually and as a couple.
My cousin officiated and pulled off a ceremony that was personal, heartfelt, and funny. We wrote our own vows and instead of a candle, we did a black and tan unity beer. My cousin captured it perfectly by saying “neither is lost in the other. Each retains its own unique character and flavor. Yet, when put together, they become something new and even more interesting than before.” He did such a fantastic job! We couldn’t believe how many compliments we got on the ceremony. Surprisingly Kristy and I didn’t cry at all. I think we were just having so much fun and enjoying the moment.
We incorporated a lot of other DIY elements including our table centerpieces, a candy buffet, a ceremony backdrop that was later re-purposed into garlands for the reception that my mom made, table runners that Kristy’s mom sewed, and paper flower bouquets for the wedding party that Kristy and I made together.
