Craft and DIY: A home-made Los Angeles Wedding

When you’re both creatives at heart, you can make any budget work for you – through some amazing tricks and DIY hacks. This couple did just that – they had the quirky LA wedding of their dreams… but on a shoe-string budget.

Jill + Joey made pretty much every element of the wedding decor themselves (aside from the balloons… because who knows how to make those!?). What they did make? The gorgeous garlands and paper pompom wall are our favourite crafty DIY elements from their big day.
