Shani & Anthony - Woodinville, WA

Written by Mette Morgan  | Published in Summer Weddings

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.

Shani enlisted her dad and brothers to make the ceremony arbor - it's amazing!
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's so beautiful!

Shani and her mum made the beautiful DIY pin wheels for the arbor and the result was incredible!
Simple DIY wedding ceremony decorations. The blue paper pom poms really makes a difference!

Table numbers carved out of wood by Shani's dad.
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!

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!
