    OH My I love ruffled for doing this contest! I entered on a whim just thinking it would be a shot in the dark. There were so so so many amazing entries and ideas that I am taking with me! Wish I could rewind and do the wedding all over again. Thanks again Ruffled!!!

    The “Love Birds on a Wire” made me smile. It reminds me of the backyard of the house I grew up in. Too cute!

    The galaxy like ceiling treatment is so unusually beautiful! Great idea!

  • Congratulations to the winner! All of the projects were so gorgeous and creative. There really are some talented brides out there!

  • Andy Moquin

    The ceiling treatment with the blue globes is absolutely gorgeous. The use of colors and the simplistic chic design is so awesome, I just love staring at it. I get the feeling that they didn’t have a hard time getting people on the dance floor, the place probably looked amazing at night. They seem like a fun and creative couple, as a bridal jewelry designer I would love to see what they did with their Wedding Rings

    Congratulations guys, nicely done!

  • Congratulations to all the winners! Wonerful DIY projects!
