Rustic Scandinavian Summer Wedding Inspiration

Rustic Scandinavian Summer Wedding Inspiration

Alright, alright. I’m finally saying goodbye to summer. I wasn’t ready but with the insane heat we’ve been having in LA, I am ready to welcome fall, whole-heartedly.

Ashley + Quinn’s Homemade Southern Wedding

Ashley + Quinn’s Homemade Southern Wedding

Have I told you all that I secretly wish I was Southern? The comfort food, the over-the-top desserts, the free use of the word “y’all.” Ok, I’m jealous.

Nicole + Nathan’s Homespun Outdoor Wedding

Nicole + Nathan’s Homespun Outdoor Wedding

What better way to kick of real DIY wedding features on Studio DIY then with a wedding that was 99.9% DIY. Now, as you’ll come to know, I don’t typically recommend doing everything yourself when it comes to weddings. It takes an enormous amount of work, patience and talented (and willing!) friends and family members. […]
