Capitol Wedding: Amanda & Keith’s DIY Woodland Wedding in Maryland

Oh I am REALLY in love with today’s DIY Maryland wedding. The bride, Amanda, is an art teacher – so naturally she put her amazing talents to work, customizing and hand making all the elements of their woodland “tree” inspired wedding. Their wedding details involved a ton of branches, bark, and wood – perfect inspiration for a fall/winter weddings – and mostly collected from the couple’s own backyard! The other element I loved about this  wedding was all the family and friend involvement. Amanda’s mom made the wedding cake, her maid of honor made the favors, and even the marshmallows were homemade!

About the couple:

 Amanda and Keith met at a party in September 2007 and immediately hit it off. Amanda works as an art teacher in Anne Arundel County, and Keith is in the process of becoming a paramedic. Some of their hobbies include camping, geocaching, and anything else that is free and fun :) They got married on their 5 year anniversary, November 10, 2012. Right now they live in Odenton with their dog Dexter, and are enjoying this time they have together before having kids in the future.

On their color pallet selection:

When it came to colors we both love the complementary color combination of purple and yellow and it seemed like a good fall palette, so when went with it.


LOVE Amanda’s dark purple sash. Perfect way to modernize and customize your wedding dress!

Just wait until you see how well Amanda & Keith executed their “tree” themed wedding:

We chose the tree theme for our wedding because we love the outdoors and we loved the symbolism of a tree as family and rebirth as we started our new lives together. Since I’m an art teacher and very crafty, I hate to spend money on things I can make. With a tree themed wedding all of our resources came from our back yard. I loved carrying out the theme from the invitations to the centerpieces, it was nice to have everything match and blend together so well.
