A Golden, Colorado DIY Wedding | Storytellers Events | Colorado Wedding Planners

When one of our favorite wedding stylists asked us to be her day-of wedding coordinator, we were ecstatic!  She is co-founder of one of our favorite hair and make-up company’s- Destination Stylists, and oh so creative.

If you would like inspiration for a wedding with several DIY elements created by the bride herself, look no further.  The bride, Lauren, kept her own succulents for the centerpieces, made the flower girl dresses (yes, sewed them!), thought of monograms, hanging lanterns, mason jars, and lace and burlap to add unique details to each aspect of their wedding.   Her bridesmaids even came over for a girls night ands created homemade peach jam to give away as favors!  And they turned out delicious!

We were given all the flowers, containers, decor, and put it all together to create a cohesive whole….

One thing that is always a toss up in Colorado is the weather…and their wedding day was the first snow of the season.  They took it in stride, got out their boots and stylish wrap, and headed outdoors for snowy outdoor photo ops.

Take a look for yourself, and know that with enough time and a little creativity, you can add special details yourself.
