Today’s wedding is filled with so much love, color, and creativity! The bride and groom, along with the help of their family and friends, pulled this wedding together with so many handmade details from the ceremony backdrop to the cake toppers. Their personalities really shined through in their details, giving this wedding such a fun vibe!

From their Photographer: Sarah and Josh’s wedding was one of The Sweetest we’ve documented this year. It was the perfect combination of charming DIY elements and elegant vintage details. It was intimate and adorable and filled with so much LOVE – all the things you’d want to see on a wedding day. This wedding was handcrafted with love by all the closest people to the bride and groom. In the bride’s words….”My dress is a Pronovias, bought in B.C.; Josh secretly flew Emily (my MOH) out for a visit so we could go dress shopping! It was awesome …I wore Emily’s mums bracelets for borrowed. My veil I made myself, the food my mum made, the pies we made together and froze in advance except the strawberry rhubarb one! That one Emily’s mum made.. The flower ceremony backdrop was built by my brother, Steve, but the flowers were made by Josh and I, my cousins and brother and mum. The pennants my bridesmaid and I sewed. Josh styled the grooms mens outfits (he did good!) I made the cake topper… Josh and I made the invitations ourselves. Em and my mum helped assemble them. The string we used to tie them all was my great grandmas! We had this cool huge spool of it.”
This wedding would’ve been my dream wedding had I opted for a destination wedding. I, too, lusted after the same Katie May gown that the bride wore and the Jarlo dress for my bridesmaids. This sweet couple travelled from their home in Canada to have their wedding on the beach in Maui. We’re in love with the stunning views, gorgeous flowers, and pretty pops of pink throughout.

From their Photographer: Canadian couple heads to Maui for their dream destination wedding! The couple opted for a first look – incredibly romantic as the photographer hid a speaker in the trees and played their first dance song while the bride walked up from behind the groom. Intimate beach ceremony at Ironwoods Beach, followed by cocktail hour and reception nearby at Merriman’s at sunset. Stunning colour scheme with navy suits and pops of pink, beautiful and simple decor highlight the already gorgeous ambiance of the open air reception. Signing canvas of their engagement photo instead of a guestbook, and garlands of photos of all the guests (a surprise!) Included some images of their day after session at Twin Falls, Maui!

Did you know that Revolve, our go-to online shop for all things fashion from jeans to dresses, has a Wedding section? I actually stalked this site for bridesmaid dresses and heels for my own wedding. The shop is broken down into sections for the bridal gown, bridesmaid dresses, accessories, shoes, lingerie, gifts, and wedding guests, which makes it so much easier to search and navigate items that are suitable for weddings. These two dresses are our current faves.
