My cousin got married this summer on her now-husband’s beautiful family farm in the Catskills of New York. Betsy thought of every little detail — and I was honored to be asked to help with her wedding stationery, monogram, and programs!
It was a very memorable and sweet wedding, full of DIY projects as you can see. Betsy and Raul wisely chose all their DIY projects not to save money (and obviously, not to save time) but because they wanted a personal touch to their wedding that money just can’t buy. So family and friends all pitched in!
Betsy wanted watercolor invitations so we created these together and wrapped them up with dried flowers and twine.
We created fan menus to match — designed by me with a map on the back drawn by Raul’s brother, and assembled with friends.
After the ceremony, we created two lines for a confetti throw — one of my favorite parts! Betsy’s dress and headpiece were made by Jenny Packham.
Then, we headed down the hill for popcorn, watermelon, and slider snacks with cocktails and yard games.
Betsy and Raul are vegan, so we enjoyed a family-style vegan dinner — delicious!
Vintage mix-and-match china, along with wildflowers, made for beautiful tables at the reception.
There are birch trees near Betsy’s home, and so her parents gathered fallen trees to create these birch candles. Her Dad and I worked together to design this monogram, which he branded into the bottoms of the candles as wedding favors.
Perfect, right? Congrats you guys!
