Raise your hands if you love unique whimsical backyard weddings!
That’s definitely the vibe we’re feeling from Katherine and Douglas’s Fort Worth, Texas wedding, which was photographed by Dorothy Gautreaux Photography. Dorothy had this to say…
“The Bride was on a low budget and used her creativity, vintage taste and DIY details to stay within $10K. She married on her aunt’s beautifully landscaped property aiming for a whimsical backyard wedding vibe.”
We asked Katherine what was her favourite moment? “When I saw my groom and husband-to-be during our ‘first site’. It was such a special moment we shared.”
What was the colour combination for the wedding? “Ivory, navy and fuchsia.”
What made your wedding unique? “My wedding was in a backyard so that was a very unique factor. Our ceremony music was also unique – my bridesmaids and I walked down the aisle to Priscilla ahn’s ‘dream’.”
What was your biggest challenge? “Picking out a bridesmaid dress for my girls was a challenge. It was so hard to find a dress that fit my theme, style, personality and budget!”
Did you DIY and details? “My Dad cut a log for me to make the stumps for my centerpieces. I also went to an antique store to buy my vintage bottles for my centerpieces.”
What’s your advice? “Try not to get too overwhelmed by DIY details. [Also] love your photographer and their style – I wanted my photos to be vintage inspired to reflect the theme of our wedding.”
Congratulations Katherine and Douglas and thank you for sharing your lush wedding pictures with One Stylish Bride.
