DÉCOR: “The one special thing about our wedding is that we designed the entire wedding and made everything ourselves. I designed and made all the centrepieces, the look for the head tables, dessert table, and welcome/sign table. My husband, parents and I made the large wooden initials with a big heart for the lawn. My dad and I created the entrance flower archway as well as the outdoor balcony design with drapery/florals.” – S
