↑ Oh, stop it. The bride designed her dress herself?↑
Knowing that the bride wanted a Marie Antoinette inspired wedding, we can only brace ourselves for the sweetness and decadence which we are about to experience. For what is a Marie Antoinette inspired wedding without lush cakes and a candy table, and plenty of pink? You won’t be disappointed!
From Johanna Hietanen: The wedding of Agnetha & Jussi took place in Rauma, Finland. The bride, Agnetha, had a Marie Antoinette themed wedding in mind. It’s mostly DIY wedding made by Agnetha herself. Theme colors were pink/dark brown/gold.
A few cool little details: Agnetha’s Father had decorated a pair of sneakers with childhood pictures of Agnetha and he wore them at the church. Agnetha’s wedding dress is based on her own drawings and ideas. She plans to get it shortened later and use it as a party dress.
With a mum who is a master confectioner, a florist aunt and a creative bride, this DIY wedding is full of personality. I love a DIY bride, but especially I love it when families come together to help create a celebration, giving the wedding the personal touch not only of the bridal couple, but of the families that surround them.
Thank you so much, Johanna and Jouni for sharing these images! And to Agnetha and Jussi, congratulations on what looks to have been a fantastic celebration of love!
