Capitol Wedding: Terri & Jim’s Small-Budget, Handmade Maryland Wedding in Middle River

Happy Tuesday! A stunning inauguration yesterday and now we are back to regular blogging for the week! Today’s real wedding feature is a DIY extravaganza, as the couple handmade so many of the wedding details to help stay within their small budget. Terri & Jim met after Terri got in a car accident and had to deal with an insurance adjuster. Lucky for her, the insurance adjuster was a caring man by the name of Jim – and their conversations quickly turned from insurance to each other’s lives.

Their wedding had a small budget, but that didn’t stop them from executing their design goals perfectly, using old windows and doors for most of the ceremony & reception decor.

 Their proposal story:

Terri is a music teacher and she was conducting her winter concert with her students. With the help of her students Jim put together an elaborate proposal with the students carrying out a sign in the middle of the concert asking Terri to marry him. Of course she said yes!
