Hello lovelies,

Did you see Mike and Amy's rustic chic ceremony and gorgeous group shots featuring ladies in boots and gents in ‘chucks' {aka Converse}? Their wedding was a homespun, DIY affair from start to finish ~ the bouquets and centerpieces were made using flowers from a flower market, the bridesmaid's necklaces were DIYed using ribbon and pearls, the bar was made from wine barrels and an old door, the flowers/burlap and jar/candle centerpieces were home made,  the ring pillow was made by a grandmother and one of the maids of honor made the cake topper and 160 cupcakes!

I particularly love their DIY escort card idea ~ place settings were written on tiny paper bags that also contained bay leaves to shower the newlyweds with and the bags were held up by mini clothespins on twine. Sweet huh?

Sit back and enjoy the DIY awesomeness of their BBQ reception and the beautiful images by Greg of GPT Photography…

Ok, can we just appreciate the cute factor here…how adorable are these two?!


It looks like it was such a wonderful day and evening. That last image is perfect.

Congratulations to Mike and Amy, wishing you all the best for the future. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous wedding.

Thanks also to Greg of GPT Photography, it's been a pleasure sharing your fantastic photography!
