Michael and Megan’s Black & Yellow DIY Wedding

February 3, 2012 by
You might have picked up that we are having a little crush on yellow at the moment. So when Bond Freyer from BLF Studios in Canada sent over this DIY wedding, we were thrilled! Michael and his bride Megan took the plunge in September last year in Winnipeg, Canada. This gem of a wedding is filled with darling handmade details.
And we’re especially smitten with all the natural elements that they included in the decor, like wood and the wheat spikes. It gives this celebration such a feeling of warmth. But what I love the most about this wedding is how Megan describes their relationship. She says, “We make each other shine just a bit brighter”. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Tell us your love story. How did you meet and fall in love?

Good friends introduced us over 5 years ago, inseparable since. Our first date we watched a 3-hour movie, bad choice, but then we spent hours in a park, swinging on a set a swings, talking the night away. It felt easy and exciting all at once.

So how did he pop the question?

Michael slipped the ring on my finger while I was asleep, this is very him by the way, I did not find it until morning. His nerves kept him up all night, when my alarm went off for work, I woke up confused as to why I would be wearing a ring on each finger, I soon found out.

What song did you choose for your opening dance and why?

James Morrison’s Better Man. The words of this song are so true to our relationship.

Were any of your family members or friends involved in the wedding and what were their contributions?

My family helped with everything – the cake, favours, flowers, centrepieces, rustic dessert table, invitations, save the date.
