A Handmade Summer Wedding at Bayview Club in Niceville, Florida

If there's one thing that Deborah Barnette (24 and a financial analyst) and David Babb (24 and an architect) wanted for their wedding, it was that it be stress-free. Though the pair was planning from afar (and living on separate coasts), they achieved their goal while also creating a highly personal, vintage-influenced affair at the Bayview Club in Deborah's Florida hometown. "Everything just fell into place," she says. 

The couple chose navy, David's pick, and coral, Deborah's choice, as their color palette, and coordinated many of the decorative pieces themselves, from hand-beading and sewing Deborah's veil to arranging their succulent centerpieces and building a makeshift photo booth. They even designed and 3-D printed their own custom cake topper.  "It was crafting central" in the weeks before the wedding, says Deborah. Their hard work paid off: On the warm summer day, their Catholic ceremony was followed with a relaxed reception that was spotted with thoughtful, personal details. -Michelle Thomas
