Today is the official kickoff for our DIY Contest, and there are so many entries to share! To warm you up for the DIY Festival, I’d like to share this wedding sent by Sharon of Sharon Taylor Designs. This Missouri wedding is the epitome of a DIY wedding done right. Hannah and Evan chose The Loft at Keith Farms in Ash Grove as the perfect backdrop for their vintage countryside wedding.

A little bit from Sharon, the designer behind it all: “This sweet countryside wedding could not have touched me more. I was fortunate to have worked closely with my cousin, Laura Key. We worked together through out this last year year and frequented many garage sales and even trash piles…(yes, we do that on occasion). She and her husband, Brett poured more love and labor into this wedding than I have ever seen before on such an event – Brett hauled their family piano all the way to Ash Grove for the ceremony so that their oldest daughter, Chloe, could play at Hanna’s wedding – her sister. A labor of love by all the family! It was SWEET. Made me cry, laugh, and dance with a happy heart. “

  • Wow! Is that the head table, with the blue and yellow chairs? So amazing! It’s like a down-home version of Alice’s tea party. :)

    That little girls dress is so perfect! I’m squealing with delight, so so perfect!

  • Absolutely beautiful details! The layering is very nice and I love how they used non-matching chairs and patterns….very different but everything looks and works very well together.

  • Gah! That’s the cutest gift station I’ve ever seen!

  • this is definitely one of my all-time favorite weddings. that dessert bar is absolutely amazing! and so colorful!

    i love the details- the “just married” wagon and chalkboards are so clever. thanks for the inspiration!

  • All the details are just superb! I really like they way they built a stepped platform for the goodie table. Excellent idea for creating layers and visual interest. Somebody (somebodies!) with true creative vision worked on this wedding.

  • Love the bright colors!! This wedding definitely has that “wowza” factor! Looks like a blast!

  • How charming and original – just love it…….!

  • A couple that has that much fun with their wedding will surely have a wonderful life together! I was just thinking about having a bride and groom painted chair like you guys’–great job with this beautiful wedding!

  • so colorful and bright!

  • The pops of colors are amazing set in the barn setting..so different and unique!

    I love this wedding! I am getting married in June and we are also having the reception in the barn, with a wagon for the gifts too! Love the picture of the wedding party in the field :)

  • Perfect marriage of shabby & chic! I adore those colors, and that candy table~ to die!

    This Wedding looks like it was so much fun! The colors are so well put together and judging by the decorations, it looks like alot of time and effort went into creating this spectaculor occasion!

  • I love the printed bags. Anything that utilizes over-printing is awesome.

  • Oh this is so lovely – I adore those little children’s vintage style clothes too!

    Love seeing these gorgeous pictures of where I grew up! This was my grandpa’s place and I am thrilled that it is still be used to make people so happy : )

    I only found ONE problem in the entire event….I wasn’t there!!! I wish I could have seen your guest’s expressions and felt the atmosphere. I’ve always felt that the farther away from the “norm”–the better. I use the equation: One event, minus “the norm”, plus fun, plus guest participation, equals an experience of a lifetime! GREAT WORK, you guys!
