DIY Wedding in Big Lake, Minnesota, Part One: Gina and Stein

There are so many things We love about this wedding: a stunning bride, a distinguished groom, great details and most of all fun people! Gina put her heart and soul into every detail of her wedding. She made custom aprons for all her bridesmaids.

Lace/Hanky asked Gina where she got her inspiration from and she responded:

"I LOVE online wedding blogs such as: Green Wedding Shoes, Ruffled Blog and 100 Layered Cake. I also have always been in love with Martha Stewart, so I consulted her wedding magazine for fun details as well. Another one of my favorite things to do is go through my family photo albums of grandmas & grandpas, aunts and uncles weddings for meaningful details. I have always loved bright colors and from the start I knew I had to incorporate lots of color into the wedding, especially with spring having sprung it was a necessity for me! I believe color can add so much happiness and can really set the mood whether it be an everyday outfit or planning a wedding like we were doing. And wherever possible I tried to throw in hints of vintage with old fashioned fonts, a vintage cake topper from Etsy, a black & white first dance video, etc."
