Real Weddings: Amanda + Troy

Amanda and Troy’s wedding was a complete DIY labor of love – a product of caring friends and a loving and devoted family.  After considering several local venues, the couple looked closer to home and decided to marry outdoors at Amanda’s parents’ home, nestled amongst her grandfather’s farm, in Wooster, Ohio.  Blessed with green thumbs, Amanda and her mother grew all of the amazing flowers for the wedding, including an amazing array of gorgeous dahlias – bliss dahlias, koko puff dahlias, maki dahlias, Miss Molly dahlias, Zippity Do Da dahlias, and sonic bloom dahlias… I am swooning over all these delectable blooms beautifully arranged by CR Blooms, Amanda and her mum. With the help of family and friends, all the planning and DIY details came together seamlessly, and I’m utterly in love with all of the gorgeous images from Arielle Doneson!
