Sweet Pastel Church Wedding

Mary, from Floataway Studios, sent us this superbly sweet wedding to us from Oregon couple Ashley and Ryan. This is a great example of how a few personalized details can really turn your location into the dream venue. From Mary, the photographer. Ashley and Ryan went above and beyond for their September wedding! The majority of the elements of the wedding were DIY and it had such a whimsical and romantic feeling to the day.

  1. Hey, Ashley – bride here! Wanted to answer some questions, sorry for being late to reply! The necklace, are you ready, is from forever 21, and was around $15! hehe, my little secret!

    The dress was Allure, 8526 in ivory: https://www.allurebridals.com/index.php?id=3&product_id=95 I had my Grandma who was a seamstress make the sweetheart neckline a little deeper.

    The bridesmaids dresses were from Modcloth. A very great resource for unique bridesmaid dresses. Also check http://www.shopruche.com
