i feel like i’ve told you a decent amount about the day and what we made, but in case you need a refresher : we made the chuppah (with a lot of help from my step dad), escort cards, menus, table numbers, programs, wood signs, hanging plant stands, raw edged linen napkins, the boutonnières, photo booth background (which we sadly don’t have photos of) a custom croquet set, and we hand painted 300 rocks and votive candles for the tables. we also did all the florals and had an assembly line of my moms friends and sisters in the kitchen the day prior assembling the arrangements.

killing ourselves with the amount of work we put into the wedding was so worth it in the end, but it was so incredibly overwhelming. we literally made wedding things everyday the month of. but hearing from our guests that our wedding was the “best wedding” they’d ever been to really made it that much more amazing for us, and we both agree it was maybe our biggest accomplishment, especially because we did it all, together.

the wedding goes by in the blink of an eye, i even remember thinking when cocktail hour was ending that it was going by too fast — but i will always remember this day so fondly and so vividly. by far my favorite day of all time.

    Hi there!

    I found your site through Green Wedding Shoes. I am getting married in Palm Springs over Memorial Day Weekend and have so many questions! You inspired me to think about doing my own flowers, though I am wondering if getting there on Wednesday gives me enough time to source everything (I live in NYC). Where did you source your flowers? Also, how did you get a hold of Arrangements! I have tried to connect with them to no avail for the bouquet.

    Thanks again for sharing!

  6. How were the signage boards made? Is it simply taking white vinyl lettering and sticking them to plywood? That font is so chic, I was wondering if the letters were custom rather than store bought.

    1. i’m posting the DIY next week! (but ps vinyl would be WAY EASIER)

      1. Yay!! Seriously can’t wait for this week now! 🙂 Your wedding was gorgeous and I especially dig the white tables (so over the rustic wood right now) and signage…perfection! Putting in a request for the escort card DIY 🙂

  7. Hey! I am in the middle of planning my wedding and am loving the idea of using antique rugs as well. Do you mind letting me know where you looked or where you got yours? I am in the LA area if that helps. Much appreciated! You’re wedding was fabulous!
