LLD wedding DIY: driftwood arch {pretty huge task, but doable!}
{image from my iPhone, shared via instagram} Remember C+C's wedding that I was prepping for in May?

lovely little DIY: mason jar s’mores cupcakes {wedding favor recipe idea}
{all images by jessica burke} i have always been more of a salt/savory person than sweets, but s'mores cupcakes are one of my dessert weaknesses. i have been wanting to try the whole "cooking in jars" thing for a while now, so decided to see if i could cook s'mores in a mason jar for a portable and pretty treat. wouldn't these be a fun alternative to a s'mores bar for your wedding? you could make them all beforehand (please enlist help of bridesmaids and don't take this on the day before...
