I'm usually pretty leary about DIY weddings because of all the behind the scenes happenings that most brides don't know to plan for. However, I wanted to share with you Dyana's Cindo De Mayo wedding! She had a small casual ceremony and reception in the backyard of her parents beautiful Victorian style home. The ceremony was simple. Rented white chairs stood along an aisle that ended underneath a beautifully decorated arch. Paper flowers both large and small adorned the sides of the chairs and arch. A rented canopy housed several tables and white chairs, covered in white tablecloths. Small bunches of fresh flowers were gathered in the middle of the center of the tables. Hanging from the ceiling were beautifully hand made paper flowers. And in the center of the raised back porch stood one square table, elegantly draped with a blue table cloth. On this table was placed her French Vanilla and Cream Cheese wedding cake, decorated to look similar to a traditional Hispanic dress.
So, what did I love so much about this wedding! One, was the couple. You could tell they were so in love and so happy to be getting married. Second, family and friends! Everyone chipped in and helped and everyone seemed to be having a blast doing it. And third, all the color and culture! Being a Hispanic bride, she chose to to use Cinco De Mayo as a way to incorporate her heritage into her wedding. All the colors, from the cake to the paper flowers to the fresh flowers, all matched perfectly. The theme flowed effortlessly through the entire backyard.
What a perfect casual Sunday afternoon wedding! Congratulations to the bride and groom! Everything was beautiful and I
