What’s really special about this DIY wedding is that it’s almost entirely designed and orchestrated by the bride herself.  Tanya is one of those people who has a natural aesthetic sense and everything she puts together is simply beautiful.  The hand lettered invitations and place cards, the centerpieces and bouquets, it’s all Tanya.  Enjoy!
