Cera and Oliver proved handier than most when it came time to plan their DIY backyard wedding. “We spent days landscaping, creating wedding details by hand and building a dance floor over the pool,” recalls Cera. In the end, their team effort payed off with a heartfelt DIY backyard wedding filled with personalization and charm. Set on the private sprawling acreage belonging to Cera’s parents, the duo tied the knot in an intimate garden ceremony, with only 80 guests in attendance (including a canine celebrant sporting a festive purple bow). With ribbon tied fences, organically arranged flowers and seating charts displayed in whimsically mismatched frames, thoughtful details were in no short supply at Cera and Oliver’s DIY backyard wedding.
