There are some of the sweetest and loveliest details in today's budget-savvy wedding. Isaac and Celia embrace spring with their lovely blue and gray color scheme and outdoor venue on a local museum's grounds. I love that they didn't let spring showers interfere with their celebration and instead pulled out umbrellas for their ceremony! And how beautiful is their appetizer table filled with cheese, fruit and pretzels? What a fun and budget-savvy appetizer idea. Enjoy this lovely museum wedding! xoxo, Jessica

What was your wedding budget?
We spent about $10,000 total.
Tent & rentals: $1000
The rest was spent on flowers and miscellaneous expenses.
How many guests did you have?
We had 200 guests.
What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
Most of my decorations were created by my sisters, and the inspiration came from pictures I saw on Pinterest. My grandad made all of the cricket boxes we used as center pieces. He and my husband Isaac made the wooden circles we had them sitting on. The doors we had at the ceremony were made by Isaac and my dad from a picture I saw on Pinterest and the wooden chest for the ice cream was also made by Isaac and my dad from a picture on Pinterest.
What was the biggest thing you did to save money?
Making as many things as possible ourselves.
What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?
I would suggest doing/making anything you can on your own. My family was a big help with making the various things I wanted, and it ended up saving a lot of money. They are the creative and artistic ones, so I couldn't have done it without them.
