Pauline and Rusty were married by Binnewater Lake at a private estate in Rosendale, NY. Their goal for their day was to "make the wedding weekend as much "ours" as possible and just have fun” our Bride explains, “…we tried to keep it not fussy, romantic and playful.” The couple and their guests even had a 5k race the morning of the big day. Read more highlights from their fun filled DIY Lakeside wedding below.
Pauline recalls the day being a major group effort to pull off with everyone pitching in to help. The major highlights of the day for her was seeing everything come together, "... all the details from hanging the lights in the tent and setting the tables to Rusty (the Groom) and friends building and decorating the chuppah the day of the wedding and especially when I saw my friends out skinny dipping in the lake later in the night! I truly have amazing friends and family!"
“Words of Wisdom” for couples currently planning their wedding?
If you don't have a huge staff of people helping out, delegate tasks to people! Everyone wants to help out to be a part of your day and want to make sure you are not stressed. Since our wedding was a DIY wedding, it was key to have someone taking care of "day of" tasks. Luckily, my friend Leah is an amazing event planner and was essential in helping to coordinate everything that day.
Bride & Groom chose the Modern Day Love Invitation Suite for their wedding stationery.
