I got two gorgeous brides-to-be, along with a makeup artist, and hair stylist to help me shoot this DIY summer wedding. It was so much fun putting together all the recipes and decorations! We really lucked out and got some of the most gorgeous weather you can ask for in Juneau, Alaska...and thank goodness because the garden pictures turned out to be my favorites. I hope you enjoy all the DIY ideas and recipes, I'd love to know if you use them for a wedding or any type of gathering!
DIY napkin/place settings ≫≫ Such a simple and inexpensive do-it-yourself project that would be fun and could be played up in any wedding colors/themes! All you need are white linen napkins (or color of your choice), kraft tags, twine, a white paint marker, and some flowers.
DIY drink/appetizer signs ≫≫ Cut out kraft paper (or paper of your choice) to fit your frame (use the insert to measure) and write your message with a white paint marker. Dave wrote these out for me since he has much nicer handwriting than I do and he added a few fun accents in the corners. We went with "Have a drink!" and "Grab a snack!" for ours, but you could write whatever you like!
We also added a few mirrors, I brought this long mirror for the center of the table, for the cake; and two octogon mirrors to dress up the drink table. If you buy them from JoAnn's, like I did, make sure to download their app for great coupons.
The beer cocktail, summer bruschetta, and lemon poppyseed cake were all homemade and I've included the recipes for you down below! Also, BIG thanks to Holly Wilson who did the lovely makeup and Jasmine Green who did the braid on Allison that I just can't get over. If you're in Juneau and need wedding hair/makeup, make sure to give them a call!
