They had me at their save-the-date. But I continued to fall for them at their OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD-AMAZING engagement session! You can read a little bit about how they met and their proposal on that blog post. Today I'm talking about the wedding! The most fabulous DIY wedding...and I mean, DIY. Almost every detail was hand-crafted by Donna, Oleg and their friends! From creating home-made soaps with a custom fragrance to staining crates and etching glass...this couple did it all! The Inn at Fernbrook Farms was the perfect venue for their gorgeous wedding.
Remember when I said everything was DIY? That includes the RINGS! Oleg created this custom ring set at his family's jewelry shop. I'm blown away by his talent!
I love that tiny smile on Donna's dad's face as he watched his daughter be wed...so beautiful!
I love the succulents and vintage silverware...simply stunning!
Hooray for two cakes! Donna and Oleg included a traditional Lithuanian Šakotis cake - which is baked by painting layers of dough onto a rotating spit in a special open oven! I like to think it grew itself, like a tree...
And lastly, the best memory of all (obvi) - me and Chris with the lovely couple! I'm a little disheveled and that's my "bad side" but we're still pretty cute, eh? Congratulations guys! It was an honor to celebrate with you! xo! :)
