DIY Success Story: Hannah & Kenny

5 min read

After getting engaged, Hannah and Kenny started looking for wedding venues. Hannah always dreamed of marrying her beloved overlooking the hills in Burlingame. A friend told her about Wedgewood Crystal Springs: it had the view, the packages and the right capacity for her guest count. After a personal consultation, the couple scheduled their wedding for April 13, 2014!

Hannah and her sister were quite the team when it came to DIY projects. Everything looked amazing!

Hannah’s sister made the bride’s bouquet out of coral gerbera daisies wrapped with ivory ribbon.

The beautiful programs were hand made by the bridal party and matched the bridal party balloons! They also made a great prop for cute photos.

Instead of floral bouquets for the bridesmaids, Hannah chose giant coral balloons. The bridesmaids also chose their own dresses in different shades of blues.

Instead of traditional vows, Hannah played the piano and sang to Kenny. It was beautiful, unique and so memorable.

The head table was set for the entire bridal party, and decorated with handmade paper flowers, a banner and balloons attached to the couple’s chairs.

The guest tables had terrariums made by Hannah’s sister. Inside were a mini banner and mini bride and groom made to look like Hannah and Kenny! Attached to the terrarium were navy, ivory, aqua and coral balloons with the table numbers hanging from the strings.

They chose navy napkins and folded them in a triangle. This made a small tent for the perfect little jar of honey with a dipper for guests to take home as a favor.
