I am beyond pumped to share Emma & Claude’s DIY DC Wedding with you all this morning! After WEEKS (months for Emma) of sharing this awesome couple’s DIY projects, tips, tutorials, and insight with you – we now get to see all their hard work as it came together beautifully for their wedding!

Emma has been SUCH a huge help with all her guest posts – and I hope she will continue to share any ideas or DIY projects she might come across in the future with us :) Congratulations to Emma & Claude, we hope you enjoyed your honeymoon in Ireland and we thank you for sharing your big day with us!

Emma’s day was perfect, and she said the only hitch was:

…the cupcake delivery driver mixed up a box of our order and someone elses, so we ended up with a dozen vanilla with blue frosting, instead of chocolate with pink frosting.  I called Georgetown Cupcake and they have agreed to refund all of our money and to give us coupons for the chocolate cupcakes.  They are good people there.

There is always something that will go wrong (for us, it was that the sound guy was inept and didn’t bring the ipod to speaker cord … almost had a disaster there….) but lucky for Emma, Gtown Cupcake is so awesome that it turned out OK in the end :)

Thank you to Rodney Mickle of Studio Blue & Bella Pictures for letting us share these images of our DIY DC Duo’s fabulous DIY Intimate DC Wedding!

Ahh!! My favorite project of Emma’s was her DIY Clutch – it came out SO gorgeous!!

Their venue searches came through – being married in front of the Jefferson Memorial is so awesome.


The DIY Wands & Streamers came out so cute!! Look at them directing everyone where to stand. Love it!

Another one of my favorite pictures from the day! Emma’s DIY Birdcage Veil & Fascinator looks so fantastic here.

Omg! Their DIY Signs & DIY Flowers displays came out SOO good!!! I adore that wooden cupcake stand.

How adorable is this DIY twist on a “cake topper”. Totally rad.

Their unique wedding rings are to die for! I love them! So offbeat and nontraditional.

The DIY Wishing Well & DIY Guestbook came out adorable too … of course!

DIY Wedding Favors in all their glory.

Emma’s DIY Centerpieces & Table Runners look so perfect on these long tables. They capture the the Cherry Blossom Theme so perfectly too!

Thank you again, a million times over, to Emma & Claude for not only sharing all their pictures from their big day, but for sharing ALL their DIY Projects with us over these past few months.

Best of luck to you both, and we wish you many, many years of happiness!
