Handmade Wedding

Now a days, wedding doesn't always mean one thing. People are branching out and making their weddings more unique, incorporating themes and traditions that are special to them.
This Chicago based couple had some fun touches at their wedding.
Dolan Geiman and his now wife, Ali Marie, run a shop on Etsy and tour the country participating in craft fairs. They call their art "contemporary with a southern accent".
This couple opted for a small ceremony and got married at The Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago.
The bride purchased the buttons for her hair off Etsy and they were hand sewn into her hair for the big day.
After attending their first derby party, the couple got the idea for their "equestrian preppy" look. This couple definitely utilized their creative friend. And even bartered their artwork for wedding services.
Even the cake was bought through Etsy. I love that the button theme picks up again in the cake.
This style of wedding isn't for everyone, but I think they had some cute touches. I wish them the best of luck!
