There are three keywords that wrap this wedding up in a nutshell: BUDGET, DIY and BEAUTIFUL. That’s all you need to know. It’s possible to create something fun and spirited on a budget and that something can be so incredibly style savvy. Just ask William and Jessica and their Oregon wedding captured by Bryan Rupp Photography. From scrumptious waffle cones to the most colorful tablescapes you could ever dream of, this shindig has it all and even more right here in the full gallery.
From the Bride… I really wanted our wedding to be a crazy DIY undertaking. I am a swimsuit designer (Nike Swim) and really wanted to have fun with our wedding! Design our own invites and save the dates, dip dye and sew my own table runners and curtains. I think by the end the ‘now husband’ had had enough of crafting, but in the end we knew it was all worth it. We got married at The Octagonal Barn at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, which was an amazing location. It had the right amount of vintage appeal and intimacy we were looking for.
Some of my favorite details of the wedding were the salt & straw scooping up waffle cones, the vintage shutter and ladder alter piece, all my chalkboard signs, leis for the Groom’s parents as they live, and he grew up in Kauai, Hawaii , and handmade tags for favors and invitations. Also, having my mom be my florist–she owns a flower shop in Roseburg, OR. She also hand painted the cornhole games. You can also see a few Bunnies hidden through out the wedding as that is my husbands nickname for me “Bunny!”
Our goal was to do the entire wedding for under $15,000, I think we ended up going over a little but still came in really close! Because of the budget we decided to take on a lot of the work ourselves… i.e. no planner!!!! And we also DIY’d practically all the decor. But I really love how everything turned out, and it was all the more special that we had put in the blood, sweat and tears when we saw it all come together.
