Back on track for “DIY Wednesday” this week (man I have been SUCKING at DIY posts on DIY Wednesday) with a beautiful DIY Wedding Brunch styled shoot! JEM Events teamed up with a handful of local Virginia wedding vendors to create an intimate, simple brunch display, overflowing with greenery!
From JEM Events:
Combining two of my favorite things, brunch and weddings, this simple brunch inspiration right at home allows you to host your loved ones in a beautiful but relaxed environment. Fresh boxwood greenery atop mercury glass candle pillars (from Pottery Barn!) were dotted with freesia and ranunculus (from Trader Joe’s) to make for a simple yet stunning centerpiece. The warm smell of the rosemary and fresh baked bread at each place setting immediately welcomes guests, and the rosemary champagne cocktail certainly doesn’t hurt either!
We’ve also included a fun DIY custom drink tutorial featured in the shoot! Check it out:

More from the event designer about the beautiful, hand water colored wedding invitation suite:
We didn’t want to be too fussy about the details and just wanted to make it feel special but still intimate and comfortable at the same time, celebrating all things food and family. Jenn (Ribbons & Bluebirds) hand watercolored the laurel wreath monogram, because she is super talented like that.
