Courtney and Nick wanted an intimate and fun wedding with lots of personal touches, and that is exactly what they got! Their wedding at the Southwest School of Art and Craft in San Antonio, Texas, was a fitting location for this craft-loving bride.
Stefanie of Your Wedding, Your Way did a fabulous job coordinating all the details and making sure everything was perfect, while the photography for this beautiful DIY wedding was by Bend the Light Photography.
Wedding at the Southwest School of Art
A friend of the happy couple made the C and N moss letters that hung on the gate of the reception site. The bride’s parents made all the escort cards and the wood signs directing people to the wedding.
Nick and Courtney opted for a first look before the ceremony. We always love the photos of when the groom first sees his bride! Such a sweet moment.
Nick bought his groomsman matching socks and handkerchiefs, with C+N embroidered in purple thread.
The mason jar aisle markers were made by the bride’s parents. All the flowers were done by Eden’s Echo.
The wedding programs were designed and painted with watercolors by a friend, Lauren Westrup. She incorporated elements from their invitation and cake topper to make a unique fan program that Courtney said was one of her favorite details!
Courtney (with the help of her mom and aunt) made the tissue paper C and N that hung on the bride and grooms chairs.
Their cake was made by Sweet Traditions. That cake topper is so CUTE! Courtney made the pinwheel table numbers.
Courtney and Nick spent a lot of time at flea markets and garage sales finding clear vintage cake stands and trays for their dessert table. It was definitely worth all the time! It came out really beautiful!
For favors, Courtney and Nick gave out their favorite spicy hard pretzels (made by Courtney’s mom!).
What a sweet wedding! We especially love that so many elements were contributed by friends and family members.
Congratulations to Courtney and Nick and a big thank you to Bend the Light Photography for sharing these images with us! See more on their blog here.
