Hey guys! I hope your weeks have gotten off to a better start than mine has! Jack has been sick for the past few days, which means everything else STOPS until he gets better. I'm writing this post while listening to him wrestling around in his crib, praying that he'll go to sleep for a much-needed nap. Ahhh, the life of a momma!
So today's wedding seems to have it all - a pretty color palette, mismatched bridesmaids dresses, a stunning bride, unique vintage props, candied apples and homemade pies. And even more importantly, the wedding has it all, but it's DIY with a realistic budget! Kelsey and Joe's vintage DIY wedding was held on a chilly day last October in Chaska, Minnesota, photographed by Mad Chicken Studio. Kelsey and Joe handled most of the wedding details themselves including all of the table linens and centerpieces, as well as the popcorn bar, homemade jam wedding favors (Kelsey's grandma's recipe) and the pies served in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. I honestly couldn't resist including so many photos of the centerpieces, because I think they include the coolest antiquities!
For their honeymoon, Kelsey and Joe returned to Mexico, where they first got engaged, to escape the Minnesota cold for some sand and sun!
