Sara & Dustin   ♥   Santa Cruz, USA

Photography:   onelove photography


Mountain weddings always seem to be so tranquil and idyllic, and Sara and Dustin’s ceremony certainly lived up to this with a sweet and private setting tucked away within the quiet hillside of Boulder Creek in California.


Once it was declared that Sara and Dustin had ‘nailed it’ – literally, check out their cool announcement board! – the party really got started!


This cool couple put their heart and soul into their DIY day and it really paid off; there are so many steal-worthy ideas! Rustic signs, a milk and cookies station, personalized blackboard glasses for all of the guests, a homemade photobooth, wedding flowers put together from the local farmers market and more.


You’ll be so impressed by the festival feeling that this darling duo managed to create for their celebration and the stunning, serene Santa Cruz mountains standing silently in the background simply add to the already magical atmosphere.

Kelsey & Aaron   ♥   California, USA

Photographer:   onelove photography


Imagine the most picture-perfect Californian vineyard setting, bathed in a sunlit haze and elegantly decorated with more wedding pretty than you could ever dream of and you’ll have almost visualised today’s wonderfully rustic, outdoor wedding.


Kelsey is one seriously crafty bride having DIY’d all of the darling design details herself (not forgetting a little help from family and friends!). Not only did her focus on features achieve an elegant yet super-personal theme for her and Aaron’s day, it flawlessly complimented the laid-back rural luxury of the HammerSky Vineyard setting.


The first class onelove photography team were on hand to capture the essence of this delightful two day destination wedding…

Irma & Vaidas   ♥   Kaunas, Lithuania

Photographer:    Martynas Masiulionis – 1111 Photography


This morning’s rustic, DIY wedding comes all the way from the Baltic country of Lithuania.

Irma and Vaidas tied the knot with a City Hall ceremony in the Old Town of Kaunas, Lithuania’s second-largest city. This vibrant university town sits upon the banks of the Nemunas River and the medieval Old Town oozes with history and charm.


After an exciting adventure on their way from the ceremony to the reception (I’ll let Irma tell you more!) they hosted a homely, backyard-style celebration that was bursting with vintage-inspired DIY details – all of which were created by the bride’s own fair hands.


From Irma’s elegant and wistful dress teamed with white Converse wedding shoes to their super-cute Pug dog, from the cheeky, snazzy dressed groomsmen sporting bright braces and bow ties to the inviting décor and DIY details, this cheerful wedding is brimming with relaxed character.

Kate & Josh   ♥   Hertfordshire, England

Photographer:   Bohemian Weddings


For those of you who read the blog in the UK we are not going to travel too far today! This delightful DIY wedding took place on a fabulous farm deep in the Hertfordshire countryside.


Kate and Josh turned this country farm venue into a carnival of colours; pretty ribbons, bright blooms, vibrant red bridesmaid dresses and some of the best DIY details I’ve seen added pops of colour and personality.


An elegant garden marquee was decked with pretty lanterns, super-sweet bunting and not forgetting a mouth-watering naked cake to deliver a rustic and rural finish. And check out the cheerful red balloon send off – such a steal-worthy idea!


Not only did this cute couple create an adorable wedding crammed with character, but they also smiled and laughed with their guests throughout the whole day, their love for one another clear to see…

Erica & Nathan   ♥   California, USA

Photographer:   Atelier Pictures


There’s something so enchanting about California weddings. Maybe it’s the ethereal light as the glorious sun sets, or possibly it’s the magical outdoor venue locales, or it could be the relaxed yet refined Cali-style hospitality; whatever it is that makes wedding’s in The Golden State so charming, Erica and Nathan’s nuptials exudes all of these characteristics and more and is captured to perfection by Atelier Pictures.


Be prepared to seriously covet Erica’s big day style. This gifted (not to mention beautiful!) bridey designed her gorgeous wedding gown herself and she also planned and decked out the whole stylish summer soiree, with some help from her hubby-to-be and some fantastic friends. This is one talented DIY-queen and so it will come as no surprise that Erica has her own furniture restoration business and blog and that Nathan is an artist!


If you’re considering saying ‘I Do’ in the Californian sunshine, or if you’re looking for DIY wedding inspiration, then this is the real wedding for you!
