Shani and Anthony took a real DIY approach to their wedding and almost got the whole family and her bridesmaids involved in the many DIY projects. I really like the way they managed to delegate and enlist family to take on projects which each family member would feel comfortable with.
Her BEAUTIFUL Vera Wang dress! So pretty!
Shani's dad and brothers made the ceremony arbor from wood that they chopped and gathered from their family lake cabin in Idaho. I would love to know exactly how they did it..it's so beautiful!
Simple DIY wedding ceremony decorations. The blue paper pom poms really makes a difference!
A very inspirational DIY guest book idea and themed perfectly with the wedding location - The Columbia Winery!
I have such a soft spot for this little cutie! What a ring bearer!
Shani and her mom sewed burlap runners for the table centerpieces and her mom even knitted runners out of kid silk for the main tables! Shani's dad carved the table number holders out of wood that was left over from the arbor!
Another sweet creation by Shani's dad...the most adorable toppers!
The unique guest book idea!
Shani and her mom used antique buttons from Shani's great grandma’s collection for the center of the paper pinwheels that they put on the mason jars & the arbor. I love this idea!
Shani and Anthony got married in the wine country of Woodinville, WA at the beautiful Columbia Winery surrounded by all their friends, family and of course their lovely dog “Frenchie Scout”.
Shani say they took on many DIY crafty projects, from the ceremony arbor to cake topper, table numbers, burlap runners, DIY centre pieces, pinwheels, mason jar decorations, guest book and so much more. And the result…just magical!
