DIY Wedding Flowers

Such a beautiful day today! It inspired me to share with you how one wedding from last summer took the flowers into their own hands and you would never know because they looked amazing! Have you ever thought to ask your local farmers market florist to supply the flowers for your wedding? That's exactly what this couple did. Once they picked up the flowers, the groom's mother got to work crafting bouquets with a little bit of burlap and lace ribbon. For the ceremony, the aisle was lined with hanging mason jars filled with flowers. So simple and gorgeous! And I have to say, the flowers lasted all day long. Too often I see flowers wilt after just a couple of hours. So enjoy this little DIY wedding day flowers.

Whitney and Jacob | Lake Forest Wedding

I'm a little behind with some of my blogging. Fall is such a crazy time of year for me. But I'm getting there! I bring you back to mid September. Whitney and Jacob said I do at Elawa Farm. Gorgeous wedding! However the rain decided to fall just as the wedding was about to begin. So we had to move everything inside the barn quickly. It was still beautiful and the rain stopped just in time for photos afterwards.... and promptly resumed just after! Like seconds... The girls were about 3 feet from the bus door as a downpour began. And I have to mention that the flowers came from the Lake Bluff farmers market. LOVE!
