Garden Style DIY Wedding: Rachel + Drew

Country Chic Wedding

With vintage wedding DIY projects and peaceful country backdrop, Rachel and Drew said “I Do” in an elegant garden style wedding. Taking place at a rustic Missouri wedding venue this couple took on project after project to make this day 100% their own! From the photographer: Of all the years I’ve been shooting weddings–never have I seen DIY pulled off so flawlessly! Rachel and Drew were married on one of those perfect Missouri fall days. The weather was warm, the trees were colorful and there was not a cloud in the sky. Thanks to L. Frisch Photography for sharing this beautiful wedding with us today.

From the bride: I started collecting bottles right away, so 5 months before the wedding. I asked all my friends and family to save all jars and bottles. I collected about 250 pieces. I got some really cool old bottles too that I saved after the wedding to decorate our home with. The de-labeling took about three weekends (about 20 hours). 8 hours of hot gluing on twine. The coolest part is that I didn’t spend a dime on bottles. Just twine, corn feed, candles and flowers. My table settings cost a total of $375 for 18 tables.
