DIY InspiredRustic Weddings

We la la love Wednesdays here at SMP! This is the day that we get to share seven amazing weddings with seven different couples and seven different design aesthetics. We're pretty sure it doesn't get any better than that in the inspiration department! So gear up friends because it's going to be a fun filled day indeed with wedding inspiration galore! And don't forget to hit up the full galleries for the full effect of these beauties!

First up is the cutest DIY barn wedding I ever did spy with my little eye from the talented peeps over at Evonni Photoartists. There are so many DIY projects that I'm in love with that I'm not even sure where to begin! But I will say that the place card holders chopped down by the groom himself and the cardboard centerpieces just might be my faves! Click here for even more!

From Evonni Photoartists: Relationships are really important to Natahle and Jon, so when they planned their DIY wedding, everybody got involved. Natahle and her mom hand made all of the paper flowers, Jon ventured into the forest to cut and make all of the place card holders and cake stands, and Jon's mom and Natahle's "little sister" through Big Brothers Big Sisters made many of the other decorations. Natahle wore a broach on her dress that belonged to her great-grandmother, and she bought her wedding jewelry new with the intention of passing it on to her daughter. A vintage door that has been passed around Natahle's friends for their weddings set the backdrop where Jon and Natahle said their vows. Their invitations were designed to match the feel of a barn wedding, and instead of a traditional reply card they chose a mad-libs style card that was perforated and was mailed back to them like a postcard. They also had a sweet custom stamp made. Natahle had Jon's wedding band engraved with the words "I will love you forever + 3 days,"which is a phrase they use often with each other! We really loved the barn location they chose. We have photographed in other barns that were designed specifically for weddings, but this one is a true barn located just outside of Springfield, MO. As you can see from one of the photos, the open area where the ceremony and reception were held is actually the second story above animal stables and tractor storage.
