Today’s charming real wedding takes us to the beautiful state of Kentucky courtesy of Morgan Marie Photography. Crafty bride Rachel Gossett took a hands-on approach to planning her wedding to groom Nathan Ross. And the details are nothing short of amazing!
As told by Rachel: I’m a DIY type of person so I wanted to be very “hands-on” for my wedding. So with the help of my sister and mom, we made basically everything from the invitations to programs to the candy favor bags and even the decorations. Many of my ideas came from pictures I found on different wedding websites and blogs. The cake stand was actually made by my bother-in-law and was used in his and mysister’s wedding as well. I didn’t have a wedding planner instead, I had a binder full of ideas, tips, tricks, and wedding vendors which I had gathered on my own or were found by my sister. I tried to make my and Nathan’s special day, as special as possible. At the end of the day, I married my best friend and nothing could have topped that.
We love it! It’s sweet photos like this that make us here at the wedding blog totally gush! Thanks again to Morgan Marie and a congrats to Rachel and Nathan!
