A wedding where the bride did her own hair and make-up (and helped other girls’ with theirs) and had three dresses (one being her grandmother’s wedding dress), the groom had a bridal party of one guy and three girls, the unity ceremony was grinding two delicious-smelling coffees together, and the first dance was done in ballet slippers (the bride of course). Such a beautifully unique wedding that captured the bride and groom’s personalities and lives, and most of all, overflowed with love. (There were tears during their written vows...and I know I wasn’t the only one!)
Not only did they put thought into every detail – but the wedding was at the gorgeous Quintessa, a venue on Whidbey Island. The immediate families had the whole location booked for five days, giving them time to hang out, and to all chip in creating all the sweet details. So much time, effort and love was put into this wedding by all who know the bride and groom.
I am loving this trend of DIY-style weddings – it really brings out the creativity and uniqueness of each couple, and shows off the dedication of family and friends who come together to support this special day…which is what it’s all really about.
Samantha looked absolutely stunning in her ballgown dress, and I adore the way Tyrel looked at her throughout the day. Many blessings on your marriage, Samantha and Tyrel - it was an honor to be a part of this beautiful wedding!
