Karis and Josiah, who met through a mutual friend at college, gathered with friends and family in Arkansas for a laid-back wedding full of creative DIY details. Karis’s dress was handmade with pieces of her mother’s wedding dress by an Etsy artisan, and nearly all other details were handmade by the mother of the bride. We love the vintage chic lanterns carried by the bridesmaids as a bouquet alternative – so fitting for an evening ceremony at Thorncrown Chapel, a beautiful glass cathedral nestled in the woods of the Ozarks. They brought their day to a close at Castle Rogue’s Manor under a sky of stars, with paper lanterns floating into the night.
