First of all, I will never get over this Kathryn Conover Couture custom gown. But even beyond that dream, this wedding shocked me when I realized it was DIY.

The brides mother foraged for local flowers and made crowns for the flower girls, bouquets for the maids and bride and boutonnières and wrist corsages for the groomsmen and grandmothers. The rock climbers in the family (including the groom and best man) teamed up to scale the massive vaulted rafters of the barn to hang the swooping sheer white fabric and three chandeliers, to get the ambiance of the rustic formal wedding just right.
