Caitlin and Douglas’ Wedding

CRAFT: DIY Wedding

Caitlin and Douglas’ wedding last year in Saratoga, CA took on a very crafty and fun spin as you can see above as the bride and groom don mustache disguises with their friends.

My husband and I were married last year, and we did just about everything (except we had our huge Thai take-out order which was delivered). Most everything was up-cycled or handmade by us or our friends — even the music. My husband and I are both musicians and I run an Etsy shop, Tortoise Loves Donkey, so to be fair we had lots of resources!
