DIY is probably an understatement. For only having a 5 month engagement it’s pretty much amazing everything they accomplished – and accomplished with what honestly seemed like very little stress or last minute rushing. From all the tissue paper flower centerpieces, to the homemade jam wedding favors, to painting the tree for their fingerprint guest book, to BAKING THEIR OWN WEDDING CAKE (it took 48 eggs from my in-laws chickens and a close friend decorated) – I really mean they did it all. Oh yea, can’t forget my father-in-law also built the cake stand and the chicken coop card holder. And it is of course worth mentioning the bunting on the head table was made by me! I actually made it for Jill’s bridal shower I hosted but she saved it for the wedding too. They hired a caterer for the main meal of course (they aren’t completely crazy) and I really wish I got a picture of the food because they did a breakfast theme since it’s their favorite meal and it included a build-your-own Belgian waffle bar and breakfast burrito bar. There was also cheese, fruit, scones and quiches out the wazoo (we still have leftovers). The venue was in the dining hall of a private elementary school here in Indy. It actually is not for rent, but my mother-in-law works there and was able to make it happen. Eric said he is never drinking out of another glass other than the “hillbilly wine glass” that Jill made for all the bridal party. I’ll “cheers” to that! Only one more installment left (I know you’re sad) – the actual reception in action!

In case you missed Part I or Part II here you go!
