Love Story Of The Day: You'll Want To Steal Every Idea From This Gorgeous DIY Wedding

We're increasingly impressed with this bride's wedding planning skills with each passing moment of her wedding video by Corona Films. Before reading Jessica and Dustin's love story and learning more about their day, we never would have guessed how much DIY know how went into crafting one of the most beautiful weddings we've seen. The colorful bouquets and crowns are actually artificial flowers from Hobby Lobby arranged by Jessica's sister-in-law. Jessica and her bridesmaids' beautiful dresses and two-piece outfits? All from Etsy and Forever 21. This news makes Jessica our new hero.

From The Bride:

\"Dustin and I met 10 years ago and briefly dated. For a reason we both have concluded we’re unsure of, we parted ways. We stayed in touch through the years, but didn’t see one another frequently until October 2015. One night we started texting, and Dustin asked if we could go for a drink the next day, and we have been inseparable ever since! A few weeks into dating we decided we wanted to get married and we chose my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary for our date.

I worked super hard on creating an inexpensive wedding that felt intimate. My husband played hockey his whole life, so rather than Cornhole we did Sauce Hockey sets. His nickname (as his last name is Wood) was Woody, hence the Toy Story Vans and cake toppers!\"
