Get ready to let out a long, synchronized “AW” over this adorable backyard wedding by Katelyn James Photography.  There are so many super sweet details all over the rustic chic celebration.  Handmade, painted signs, eco-friendly planted centerpieces and a cookie bar.  A cookie bar!  I’m pretty sure the cookie bar should be mandatory at every wedding.  Check out all the DIY goodness in the full gallery!

From Katelyn James PhotographyHere are a couple of unique items from Nikki and Alex’s wedding. All plants used for centerpieces were potted plants and were reused after the wedding, nothing went to waste!

Their cookie bar was a huge hit! Nikki and Alex gathered the best cookie recipes from family members and created “recipe booklets” for their guests to take home. The cookie bar was lined with rustic jars full of Grandma’s Brownies, Aunt’s ginger snaps, Mom’s sugar cookies, etc.  It was such a great personal touch!

A friend made handmade wood-burned signs for the cake topper and also created “Mrs. and Mr.” signs for the Bride and Groom’s seats. Nikki’s bouquet had two charms with pictures of her grandparents inside who passed away before the wedding.
