DIY Bohemian Rainbow Wedding: Jenn + Matt

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. We have a sweet, romantic, whimsical wedding to start the week off today. Jenn + Matt had so many unique details to their wedding to really make it theirs. I love that they had their bridal party in rainbow colors because the rainbow is a symbol of promise and they watered a tree together during their ceremony that they plan to plant behind their house and watch grow every single day. Gorgeous photos thanks to Three Nails Photography.

The wedding was held at the weekend/camp house of a family friend. They let us use the camp as a gift to us, we saved a lot – and are so grateful! Plus, it is gorgeous and private!!

I walked down the aisle to the song “everlasting light” by the black keys. This is also engraved into his ring. It’s a special song to us, and the intro was great for the bridal party to bee bop down to!

Most memorable moment of the day? Mr. says when I walked down the aisle – and when I forgot my vows!! I have a hard time choosing, hiding behind the bush before I walked down the aisle, my dad getting on me for picking my nose (I didn’t want boogers and forgot to check…don’t judge!), when Matt and I kissed, when I went overboard stuffing his face with cake, sitting around the water after most guests left with all my old friends.

How did you make the day about the two of you? We thought about how we would do everything, there was no “this is how it’s supposed to go” and leave it at that. Every detail showed our individuality, such as the tree planting – something that intertwines our love of nature into the ceremony and something we will grow with. All of the decorations and details were crafted by myself, family, and friends. We added wording to the pastor’s (who is an inspiring person in our life and Matt’s boss) speech that meant a lot to us and we wrote our own vows.

Any advice for those planning now? Spend the most on photography/videography.don’t stress over details. Have back-up bridesmaids/groomsmen. Make sure not to let the day be controlled by someone else. Make it personal to you and your groom, don’t be afraid to break tradition. You aren’t close with people who are so uptight they’ll be mad at you for something you decided to do for you & your new hub!

Thanks so much Jenn + Matt for sharing your day with us. We wish you both the best life together!!

  1. […] sweet little whimsical affair on Green Wedding Shoes had me totally captivated today. It is your quintessential bohemian style of whimsical wedding, […]

  2. […] I don’t know about you, but when the days start getting a little colder (or perhaps, a lot colder!) I start to crave those brilliant lively colours that seem to be everywhere throughout the summer months but go into hiding as soon as the temperature drops. A pop of colour can brighten up anything and certainly adds flair! Most importantly, colour will perk up your mood and get you having a bit of fun! Winter brings with it its own fabulous colour palette but don’t think that this means you can’t throw a bright yellow into the mix! Yellow, red, green, blue, pink, purple – go crazy! Try one or two together or go for a rainbow theme and use them all. Bright colours stand out against a bleak grey background so outdoor photography incorporating the moody grey sky and fun colour pops can look amazing a la the below photo from Green Wedding Shoes … […]
