From A Simple Photograph...Angie and Mike were married earlier this summer in a ceremony and reception held in the backyard of their new home.  You simply won't believe me when I tell you all the DIY projects this bride took on herself!  Angie made the custom hangers for each of her bridesmaids dresses.  She designed and printed all of the invitations and paper details including the menu's and custom signage for the photo booth and a welcome "celebration" sign at the entrance to the event and the escort cards.  She made a custom backdrop for the photo booth where guest were encouraged to take their own photos and assemble them in a guest book also custom made by, you guessed it, Angie.  She home baked, let me say that again, HOME BAKED every item on the dessert table, including the cookies, pie pops and cupcakes and she prepared sweet little Chinese take out boxes for those who were too full to indulge that evening.  She hand decorated a sugar cookie with the word "thanks" spelled out in icing for each guest's place setting.  She created a s'mores station for a midnight bonfire with a cute little chalk sign.  She made all of the bouquet's for the girls in the bridal party.  She and Mike hung strings of lights over the tent and wrapped trees in forest behind the tent to create a sparkling night time ambiance.  She arranged all of the terrarium centerpieces herself and, AND the day of the wedding she and her bridesmaids spent the morning preparing the tent, carefully arranging each place setting.  Whew, I'm tired just writing that?  I have no idea how Angie managed to do all that work?  But isn't the result beautiful!?!
