Real Wedding: Erin and Pete's Multi-Cultural, DIY Wedding by Black Forest Photography (8)

Today’s real wedding comes to  us from Becky of Black Forest Photography and is truly a DIY tour de force! Becky says:

Erin and Pete had a morning wedding with a light brunch they did themselves. They didn’t have a reception that included cakes, DJ’s etc. So, the only real vendor besides myself was the venue, Glen Eyrie. Erin was very DIY.

See the rest of this lovely wedding after the cut!

This was a multi-cultural marriage. The groom came from a Japanese family and they all wore traditional Japanese clothing and did a tea ceremony during the wedding ceremony.

The bride came from Scottish heritage and incorporated her tartan colors with her dress and did a twist on the “Sashing of the Bride” during the ceremony to incorporate her heritage as well.
