I was beyond amazement with Maria & Jason’s wedding details. All because every little bit of decor from the ceremony & reception was well-thought & handcrafted by this lovely couple with the help of family. This special day was actually a big surprise to their family & friends who thought they were just attending an engagement party. Little did they know that Maria & Jason had a big surprise under their sleeves. Maria had fully planned on what she wanted. Everything was beautifully DIY’d up to the smallest detail. So, if you’re looking for a budget-friendly wedding inspiration, this is it!
Their photographer Stephanie Rawcliffe shares with us some of the intimate details about the couple’s wedding day:
Maria & Jason both put their heart & souls into the creation of this backyard wedding. They were on a very tight budget but still managed to surprise their crowd, literally and aesthetically. Maria handmade every mason jar, tied every knot, decorated every detail while Jason was the mastermind behind serving up some of the best spiced refreshments. Jason’s mother made all the home cooked fixings for the crowd and all together they invited everyone over for what the crowd believed was an engagement party. One hour into the festivities, both Maria and Jason thanked their friends and family for sharing in their special celebration but, surprise, they were actually in attendance for their wedding.
