I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends
Ariel Herwitz (Bride) Upper Lake, CA
My story is simple, it is one where I was lucky enough to find myself on a mountain in the woods with 70 of the most amazing and loving people in the world! My husband and I are artists, and hence, were on a serious budget with our wedding. But one of the most amazing things about being an artist is that all your friends are too! As is typical of a DIY wedding day, I was busy and anxious and a little stressed. I asked a couple of my very closest friends (and amazing artists) to help put together the centerpieces and boutonnieres. An hour later, walking into the living room of our tiny log cabin, I found nearly a dozen friends and family busily making the most beautiful and simple flower
arrangements. I couldn't believe it! That room was filled with such love and creativity. Each flower was placed in a vintage blue glass vase (collected by my mother-in-law) or into a handmade ceramic vase, made by my husband and I and two of our closest friends. We were so lucky to have such amazing people around us who made our simple DIY wedding absolutely gorgeous and filled with love!
