Caroline and Andres wedding is full of handmade details, rustic accents and feminine detailing. If you look below at the decor resources listed, you’ll see how many of their friends and family pitched in to help with the wedding. For so many couples, their wedding really comes together as a result of their “village.” While I caution against taking on too many DIY projects, if you have a network of loved ones who are willing to lend their time and talents, a truly handmade wedding can be one of the most special ways to wed in style.
I can’t begin to tell you how lucky I feel that photographer Edyta Szyszlo shared all of these gorgeous images with us today.
