Secret Garden Wedding – Maurice & Emily

What a fun secret garden wedding we have today filled with DIY ides for you. This Richmond, Virginia wedding took place at a state park, and there are such special touches for you to see. Here are some of my favorites.

  • This wedding has such a happy, fun color palette. Bright pink paired with purple and a succulent here and there make for such a beautiful selection of hues.
  • The flower girl and the ring bearer – can we say cutie patooties? They are absolutely adorable!!
  • Be sure to take note of the cute wedding sign. Made from vintage silverware, jewelry and serving pieces on a weathered board make for such a fun keepsake long after the wedding day. Adorable signage!
  • Any wedding by a lake catches my attention – the wedding ceremony has the backdrop of water for a view. Stunning!
  • In your search for considering a wedding venue, a state park just might be the place. Protected land and fun elements like water, lovely trees and privacy, they also tend to be very budget friendly. Check them out!
  • When a wedding incorporates a pet, it always adds an element of cuteness! Maurice and Emily’s day included a husky, which is such a fun addition. Good dog!
  • The Jenga guest book is pretty cool. What a fun idea to have each guest sign a piece of wood.
  • Speaking of wood – the cake knife was a personalized wooden knife, which also makes for a great keepsake from their outdoor, rustic wedding day.

There are so many touches that make this DIY secret garden wedding so simply classy and detailed. I hope you enjoy it today!
