A Darling Handcrafted Wedding

This backyard wedding shot by Goodnickels Photography is absolutely darling! The bride’s mother handcrafted many of the details, including Ali’s incredible bouquet. It is made out of ribbon and rickrack, and is so sweet and unique. What a special memento to treasure and pass down to future generations!

More from the bride, Ali:

When I was planning our wedding I envisioned a sweet, homemade, backyard wedding. I wanted to incorporate handmade things with my vintage favorites.

My mom is so talented. She made my bouquet (out of rickrack and ribbon), the ring pillow, the flower girl dress, the favors (the owls and robots), the favor boxes, the cake topper, the boutonnieres, the antique game pieces, centerpieces, and the table runners.

We looked at a few venues, but couldn’t find the right fit. A friend offered up his backyard and we thought, perfect!

My sister was in charge of the flowers. That day she went to a local farmers market and purchased a variety of flowers. The mix of flowers looked great.

My advice for planning a wedding is to stay organized. My sister made me a wedding planning book. I kept ideas, inspiration, websites, pictures, etc. in it. It kept me on track and organized. It made it easier to tie everything together and now I have a amazing scrapbook of my wedding memories.

Some advice from Jinni:

I had so many people tell me how beautiful my wedding was, and it was very simple. You don’t have to go all out and spend the money to make a beautiful wedding. Simple is elegant.
