Intimate DIY Wedding {Raylene + Kevin}

It’s the laid back feel of these wedding photos by Chad + Anastasia Photography that make this real wedding one of our favourites.

Raylene and Kevin were married in an intimate DIY wedding at Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada.

The pair chose a natural setting, a relaxed ceremony, hearty food and simple low key and homemade décor that reflected them perfectly. “We’re generally very informal, fun and like life kept simple and we wanted the focus to be on our small guest list of 67 and us. We also wanted to keep the cost reasonable and the waste and consumption down. So we had no cake, no seating placecards, no favors, and no programs. But there was plenty of love in the air and everyone had a great time”, Raylene explained.

We love that this charming wedding was full of personal details, which included lots and lots of pretty buttons. Raylene explained, “The buttons were to symbolize family and friends that could not be with us”.

The buttons were used to decorate jars, make the bouquet and the bride’s homemade headpiece. “Buttons from my mother and both grandmothers dresses were used on the birdcage veil. Buttons from Kevin’s grandmother and mother were sewn onto the back of his tie. The buttons for the bouquet were collected for months and each came with a special note from the sender as to why it was special to them and where it came from”.

The couple chose a potluck reception dinner and a pie bar instead of a wedding cake. Guests brought side dishes or pies and a friend played the role of bartender.
