A DIY Shabby-Chic Wedding at a Private Residence in DeLand, Florida
Sarah Yoho (32 and a physician’s assistant) and Sean Erwin (33 and an adjunct art professor) made sure their shabby-chic wedding in DeLand, Florida, was about them and their guests. They filled the private farm of Courtney Ford Hamill (their friend and wedding planner) with DIY, borrowed and homemade details. Everything had a personal touch. Sarah collected mismatched vintage dinnerware for the reception and vases for the bright centerpieces from Julia's Floral Designs. Sean also made the wooden ceremony benches with a friend. The rest was contributed by their amazing guests. A local chef took care of the chicken and waffles and fried pickle appetizers while the owner of Free-Wil Barbecue catered dinner (both were Sarah and Sean's friends). For dessert, everyone pitched in. Friends and family members made tiers upon tiers of chocolate chip, M&M's, sugar and more flavors of cookies for the dessert bar. After a few sweets, they spent the rest of their night dancing to Spade McQuade & the All Stars, who Sarah and Sean knew from Jacksonville. “Pretty much the entire wedding was provided by friends,” Sarah says. “This made our wedding so special, and we could see the love in every detail.” See every moment captured by the Canovas Photography, below.
