DIY Virginia Wedding II

It’s time for a detail parade! Check out all the adorable details from Lindsay and Ben’s backyard wedding by Heather España.

From Lindsay:

I guess the vibe we were going for was elegant, antique, vintage with a touch of whimsy. I even wore my Grandmother’s old costume jewelry. We spent hours scouring thrift shops, used bookstores, and craft stores. I didn’t want anything to match too much. I’m not a matchy kind of person. So, from that came the mismatched china…for 165 people! That may have gone a little overboard. I have every kind of vase, jar, teapot, candle holder, and clock you can imagine. We wanted every table centerpiece to be different. I now have a house full of cool treasures. I highly recommend buying things you can use again. We also did lots of crafting projects. We made napkin rings from pvc pipe and vintage fabric. I sewed flowers on the little girls ballet flats to match their tutu’s. I made boutonniere’s out of buttons and feathers and instead of corsages we made broaches. We made chalkboards galore! The list goes on and on.


Part III is coming your way soon!
