Sami Jo is an Idaho girl with a spitfire personality. I met her at a wedding show in the early stages of her planning. Upon meeting her I knew that her wedding would be one that you would want to be at. Her personality was so enjoyable. Her smile was infectious and she had a wonderful laugh. You immediately knew the wedding would be a fun party.
Sami Jo is a do it yourself country girl. She is one of those gals that takes life by the horns and just conquers.
Most of the weddings we choose to publish have the assistance of a wedding coordinator. Coordinators are great at the little details. Sami Jo however had every little detail covered. She also comes from a family that is pretty down to earth and they all stepped in and helped out.
Sami Jo's family lives on a beautiful farm here in Idaho and it provides a great deal of natural beauty. Sami chose to maximize that the best she could. She then made custom signage for just about every aspect of the reception. Sami's Pinterest page was checked off one beautiful craft after another.
Sami spent much of her planning time gathered antiques and decor to spruce up her parents already gorgeous estate. She enjoyed every minute of it and found some beautiful components.
The colors were turquoise, the Bride's favorite, and light pink accents. The bride chose pink linens to really dress things up. Each guest was given a mason jar for sweet tea or the beverage of their choice.
Saltwater taffy in her wedding colors added a party confetti look to the tables.
The key to a successful DIY and managing all of your decor aspects and producing a successful event is "Attention to detail." Sami Jo had everything meticulously planned out including the days schedule.
Simply using boots as decor is not only practical and can be used after the wedding, but they make perfect props for wedding pictures.
Brides DIY tip is to start collecting early and enjoy the process.
