Weddings are like fingerprints, none are exactly the same and each are a representation of who you are. That’s part of the fun! Since you can mold your wedding to represent your values, style and even your sense of humor; you can let your imagination run wild. Maybe that’s why Ellie and Geoff’s DIY off-beat wedding caught our eye — it was a DIY dream! Held in Griffis Sculpture Park in upstate NY, Ellie and Geoff took advantage of the magical lush landscape and sunshine and held the ceremony and reception outdoors. Photographer Carolyn Scott shot this amazing wedding and shares the entire experience on her website
