Some people were born to DIY. Kind of like Martha minus the empire and this Bride is one of them. Seriously, you know your wedding is good when an editor thinks it's a shoot right up until reading the description. And these two love birds are just too lovely not to gush about. And their wedding set in an orchard, filled with fabulous DIY details and captured perfectly by Chantel Marie Photography is equally gush worthy. So we're gushing, we're swooning and we are totally DYING over every second of this wedding. Be sure to stop by the gallery for lots more!
From Chantel Marie Photography...Hilary and Jon tied the knot on 7.9.11 They dated on and off for about 4 years...they started dating in college at ASU. He then moved to Hawaii to play collegiate golf and she moved back home to Vegas. They were in and out of the relationship. Just when Hilary thought things were all over, Jon and her worked it out. He came home for holidays in hopes to win her back, knowing he could not live without her. An amazing Thanksgiving and Christmas with their families in NV and AZ confirmed their forever love...he proposed his next trip home.
Hil and Jon are a very old-world loving, antique appreciating couple. They adore cooking together and Hil loves needlework and DIY projects. Hil and her mom pretty much DIYed her entire wedding. Jon's family has horses and a ranch and Hil is a very classy, thrifty gal. They compliment each other so well in that they are completely and entirely head over heels for each other.
Their wedding was gorgeous and they loved every moment of it. It was so authentic to them. Hil had a say in everything that was purchased, made, and how and where it set at the venue. The wedding was just 'them'.
