You saw the simple feel and pops of hot pink and Laura and Colin’s wedding ceremony photographed by Liz and Ryan, and now it’s time for their DIY wedding reception! How fantastic is their map seating chart!? They recruited friends and family to help them craft their day’s details, like that map, as well as intricate origami butterflies, and even the desserts!

Wedding Map Seating Chart

From Laura: During the day we took a few moments together to just look around and enjoy the moment. We told each other how special that day was and how much we love each other. Those moments for just us were special.

We had lots of personalized touches such as a friend singing a song for us, another friend who made 100 origami butterflies for us, one who did our cupcakes and another who made our macaroons etc.

I loved how simple and elegant our DIY center pieces looked and how amazing a place can look with just candles.

Laura’s advice to other DC-area couples:

Sit down and have each person list their top three priorities. If you are like most people you have a limited budget and can’t do everything, so figure out what’s important. Be sure to ask friends and family for things — it’s amazing how many talents you can uncover. As an example, we had friend make our seating chart, another did the invitations and others provided various food items (including the wedding cake!). This ensures the people will give you quality and at a good price.
