Handmade weddings will always hold a special place in my heart. There’s just a certain kind of love pored into a DIY day that stands out in every detail. And from the handcrafted ceremony altar to the backyard reception, this wedding radiates love from the inside out. Have a looksy loo at the gallery from Anna Jaye Photography, and go pull up those pin boards right this second!


From Anna Jaye Photography… AnaMaria & Rick got married at a family home in Oregon City. They made the alter. They planted the grass at their ceremony site. AnaMaria’s mom did all of the reception decor and florals – some really beautiful work. Rick and AnaMaria’s brother laid bricks for the patio, prepped the yard and according to AnaMaria “built anything I asked them to” : ) You could feel all of the love and effort that went into this day and helped to make it absolutely beautiful.
