Real Wedding with Splendid DIY

I have to admit, I’m not a fan of DIY Weddings. They often lead to much stress and look a little too on the homespun end for me. Rachel’s wedding though is an exception!  As a professional makeup artist in the industry, she was able to pull off a clear motif. Each and every one of her DIY pieces tell as story and bring her wedding day together full circle.  For this expert do-it-yourselfer our seamstress changed her dress neckline and added a custom keyhole. So not only was her wedding truly unique, her wedding dress was a one-of-a-kind.
