Corrin and Seth married at Bella Sala in Iowa in front of their family and friends.  Their wedding was filled with DIY details from the bride and members of her family. The beautiful arbor Corrin and Seth said their vows under was handcrafted by Corrin’s grandfather and decorated with silk florals from Visions of Silk. The cake and homemade desserts were made with love from both their families. All of the decor was put together by the bride, an avid crafter. The tables featured centerpieces that were personalized with photos of the couple and were accented with hues of flower petals and glowing candles. The head table was bathed in gold string lights and tulle. For the ceremony, the aisle was lined with glowing stems placed in gold ribbon wrapped bins surrounded by light pink and white rose petals.

Photographer Bethany McNeill captured the couples day.  Her absolute favorite detail was the bride’s open illusion-back gown with lace detail.  A definite showstopper while the bridesmaids were the perfect compliment in blush gowns with varying necklines. I was very specific in what I was looking for in terms of a wedding dress. “I wanted something that was not strapless, had an open or illusion back, and was covered in lace. My consultant with the Bridal Connection, Stevi, found me the perfect dress. She checked every box on my list and then some!” Corrin says of her dress selection.

The couple planned their entire Iowa wedding while living in Texas where the two moved after graduating from Clarke University in Dubuque, IA.  They pulled off the dream DIY wedding. That, paired with their fun and witty personalities, was a joyful day to be remembered!
