Whimsical DIY Wedding from Starfish Studios

I know I don’t need to tell you just how much we adore DIY weddings here at SMP, but this darling backyard affair from Starfish Studios most definitely makes it worth repeating.  A whimsical meets stunning seaside celebration, every last detail you see is a true labor of love by the seriously sweet (+ seriously crafty) bride and groom, plus friends and family.  From the perfectly imperfect florals to the fab paper goods to those crazy cool yarn balls dotting the ceremony, it’s DIY perfection from start to finish. See it all in the full gallery.

From Starfish StudiosThe entire wedding party had a hand in creating the details for this stylish seaside wedding. The groom designed the invitations. He also designed other paper goods including tags on their favors which were filled with coffee beans and named “Wedding Blend” in honor of their special day. The bride and bridesmaids arranged the florals that filled the vintage bottles that decorated the reception tables. The Maid of Honor created the DIY yarn balls hanging by the ceremony spot. This wedding was a labor of love and it really shows.

Delray Beach Wedding from Becca Borge Photography and Sugar(ed) Occasions

What should be your first step when planning a destination dream wedding? Hire a dream team of vendors. Which is precisely what this couple did, and the result? A day chock-full of gorgeous details with a style that is beautifully timeless. Those moments were planned to perfection thanks to Sugar(ed) Occasions, and we get to enjoy every last one thanks to the sweet images snapped up by Becca Borge Photography. Which you can do right here.


From Becca Borge Photography… An awesome team of vendors and a classy couple created an intimate affair defined by genuine moments, a unique setting, and lots of pretty details! Miranda with Sugared Occasions made sure everything ran smoothly and created a completely romantic atmosphere with soft, white florals, endless candlelight, and personal touches representing the couple.  I love the ‘winery-on-the-ocean’ feel, as the groom is from across the sea (England)…and the bride is a “Vino Vixen” from California. :) The wedding was a complete destination wedding with all guests coming from out of state and some overseas. The other vendors that made this day special were Parkland Chef Catering, Unearthed Vintage, Atlas Rentals, and Steel Band Culture.

Delray Beach Wedding from 13:13 Photography

There is DIY, and there is DIY from this Bride, who happens to take do-it-yourselfing to a new sparkly level. It’s almost as if she waved a magic, talented wand over her beautiful Delray Beach day, and then wallah, crafty perfection. But anyone who’s planned a wedding knows better – and one peek at the pretty captured by 13:13 Photography in the full gallery and you know there was a lot of love that went into every touch. So our hats are off to this mini Martha of a Bride, her level of detail is one for the books. See them all here.

Garden Venue

From the Bride… Eric and I both live in Boston but decided to get married in sunny South Florida near where I grew up. We searched and searched for the perfect secret garden-like venue, and after looking for what felt like months, we finally found the Sundy House! It was perfect! Delray Beach is the cutest beach town! We knew our out of state guests would love it! Plus, it wasn’t too far for my family in Miami to drive up for the day!

I had so much fun planning the wedding. Being a graphic designer, I knew from the beginning that I wanted to tackle a lot for the wedding. I designed the save-the-dates, invitations, and all of the other paper goods used throughout the wedding. I also decided paper flowers would be a great way to showcase my love of paper. I planned to make my own bouquet, but a few months before the wedding I spotted a gorgeous one from BHLDN and purchased it! As beautiful as the bouquet was, something was missing. I wanted it fuller with more flowers, so I took apart the bouquet and created my own using both the flowers that were purchased and some of my own creation. My shoes were definitely a labor of love! I wanted blue sparkly peep toes with a thick heel, but could not find anything I liked. So I did what any bride in my position would do… I created my own dream pair (and all it took was a little glitter and paint)!

We got married in late October and wanted our wedding to reflect the fall season, which we both love! We wanted subtle details throughout the wedding to remind our guests that even though we were in a tropical setting, Halloween was just a few days away. We achieved this by using all different sized pumpkins and fun pops of orange, brown and teal. We even had a candy buffet with treat bags I designed that read “Trick-or-Treat Because Love is Sweet.” Everyone agreed, it was an enchanting evening! Eric and I could not have asked for a more perfect day! And we absolutely loved working with Ashley and Philip from 13:13 Photography!
