Handmade Legacy Hall Williamsburg Wedding by Dani White Photography

From the anemone-speckled bouquets to the carved birch candleholders to the custom-made bridal gown, this is the epitome of a perfect handmade winter wedding. And if you're a winter bride like myself, you are going to do some major swooning!

With the help of very talented family and friends, Heather and Rob celebrated their special day in both Newport News for the ceremony and in Williamsburg for the reception.

For other handmade-loving couples, Heather advised, "Don't feel that just because the wedding industry tells you that the average wedding costs $28,000, that means you need to spend that much on your wedding for it to be beautiful and special. Think outside the box for venues-- we used the James City County's Legacy Hall, and it was beautiful and affordable plus we had the building all day."

Whether you are a handmade bride or just someone who loves looking at pretty, this lovely wedding will surely inspire with its sweet moments and well-crafted details.
