Heather and Travis: A DIY Detailed Wedding

We’re back with some more delicious images from Heather and Travis’ detail-filled wedding at Dawn Ranch Lodge! I love the energy this whole group brought with them to every part of the day – it was contagious! After getting ready for the ceremony, we snagged the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some pre-ceremony photo ops….

Nothing matchy-matchy here! Each groomsmen was responsible for their unique shoe and sock ensemble! I wonder what you can tell about a person by their shoes?

Travis and his groomsmen didn’t miss an opportunity to ham it up in front of the camera – we love these guys!

Those fabulous flowers are so beautiful! I love the peach and lavender mix, done by a friend of the bride.

We had to sneak some pictures of these little darlings! Kids always bring a touch of whimsy to a wedding day, you never know what they’ll do! They do look awfully cute in their wedding outfits though!

Can you believe Heather and Travis dreamed up this dreamy escort card wall?? Each label was attached to an antique key, with the name of the guest and table written on it. So creative!

This is a first for us! A dictionary served as their guest book, which was perfect for the nods to classic literature found throughout the wedding! Guests could find any word, circle it, and use it as the basis for marital advice, a comment on the wedding, or how they feel about the couple. It might take a while to thumb through it all!

Streamers were part of the decor – some had pictures from the bride and groom’s childhoods, or pictures of them during their time dating.
