Hannah and Jonah

An East Coast clambake wedding, complete with Pimm's Cups and candlelight? Count me in!

First spotted on Snippet & Ink, this beauty of a celebration is all DIY, and an inspiration for anyone with a crafty bone in their body. Using the motto "Sweet and Simple" to guide them, this Brooklyn-based couple tied the knot on the water in Cape Cod.

The crafting started with the couple's invitation suite; Hannah, inspired by an old card, created a custom rubber stamp and "printed" the save-the-dates and invitations on paper from Kate's Paperie! She also chose a vintage dress from the Pasadena City College flea market for $50 that she altered herself, so a splurge on her "something blue" Loeffler Randall shoes and gold bow cuff from Alexis Bittar was well-deserved! The groom wore a J.Crew suit, Pucci bowtie and a pair of Tretorn sneakers you can be sure got plenty of mileage long after the big day!

Since rain threatened their plans for an outdoor ceremony at the Pamet Harbor Yacht Club, the vows were moved indoors. Hannah and her friends collected greens from the side of the road and one of her friends constructed the garland just hours before the ceremony! The bride's engagement ring was from Excalibur Jewelry, and the pair exchanged wedding rings from Doyle & Doyle and St. Kilda. A Cape Cod florist made Hannah's baby's breath bouquet, along with the wildflower-inspired boutonnieres, while the bride and her friends arranged the simple centerpieces.

Cosmos catered the intimate reception, serving a clambake, lobsters and a raw bar, and Hannah and Jonah chose a Pimm's Cup as their signature cocktail–recipe is forthcoming. A marzipan cake topped with porcelain figures was whipped up at the Danish Pastry House in Boston, and guests took home jars of Jonah's homemade pickled beets, wrapped in newspaper that echoed the newsprint table runners.
