A Pretty DIY Wedding at Robin Hill Farm in Brandywine, Maryland
Just about every part of Bethany Strumpell (26 and a children's creative coordinator) and Ryan Strumpell’s (26 and an accountant) wedding was full of meaning and gave back. Bethany found her lace wedding dress at a non-profit bridal shop called Fairytale Brides on a Shoestring Budget, whose proceeds go toward local charities that empower women. They served coffee during cocktail hour from a a fair trade, philanthropic brew house called Redeeming Grounds. And both families were ultra-involved in helping pull off the details. Ryans’ dad built the self-serve beer bar for their cocktail hour and Bethany’s dad officiated their ceremony at Robin Hill Farm. All of the centerpieces for the day were DIY too, put together with the help of their family and friends. Bethany’s dad cut the wood slabs for the bases, friends and family contributed wine bottles for the vases and her aunt collected the flowers to fill them. Photographer Jessica Crews was there to capture all the pretty details!
