We Did It All Ourselves

Rachel Helm (Bride) Enfield, NH
We did everything ourselves, we utilized our time, talents, and money to make the day as DIY, inexpensive, and personal as possible without creating too much chaos or stress. We were lucky to have friends and family that were eager to help. Our sisters made all the bouquets and boutonnieres, my fiance made the place cards and signs, I arraigned centerpieces and decorated, and my fiance and I (with the help of our amazing Chef Best man, Colin Kelly) made all the food ourselves, in the week before the big day. With the help of our musician friends, we had access to a full sound system and spent an entire weekend cultivating a dance-tastic mix of songs that would keep everyone dancing all night, ... and boy, did it work! We were so lucky to have a group of friends and family all willing to share their gifts and time with us to make our day so incredibly special. Show more

Flowers Used for Rachel Helm's Arrangements

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres

They arrived so fluffy and beautiful. I was scared they would be squashed but they were lovely! The bigness of the flower meant we could use just 3 stems in each bouquet and get a very grand look.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres

Where to start...the smell when we opened the box was gorgeous. The greens were used in our centerpieces and filled our reception space with life and aromatic joy!
