October 24, 2019 | brooke

Calling all free-spirited, DIY babes! Jenna and Jansen’s boho DIY backyard wedding in Nashville, Tennessee is the one for you! We’re completely obsessed with how the couple pulled off such an inspirational day all by themselves — from the wax-sealed invitations to the teepee altar, absolutely everything from this day was handmade. Jenna looked stunning in her lace BHLDN gown, and check out how her groom and his men rocked Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. Get your Pinterest boards ready, babes, because you’re going to fall in love with every photo Hailey Pierce Photography captured from this DIY backyard wedding day!

The Couple:

Jenna & Jansen

The Wedding:

Private Residence, Nashville, Tennessee

One of my MOHs, Hayes, and I watercolored each invitation. I designed the artwork and ripped every edge to gold foil them each by hand and sealed with a wax “H”.




If you don’t have a wedding planner, don’t be afraid to ask for help! We were SO lucky to have so many people willing to help. I asked my mother- in-law to just take care of the flowers, because I knew she’d be amazing at it, and she so graciously took care of it all!

My husband wrote a song for our wedding day and sang me down the aisle! Most magical moment ever. Our recessional was Love On Top by Beyonce. Our dads, who officiated, pulled confetti cannons out and we danced our way out.

When the party was over and we were leaving we had everyone lined up with sparklers in hand. We were both waiting to go down the sparkler aisle, and I decided to run to the bathroom. Well while I was in the bathroom, the sparklers were given the go-ahead to light. So as I walked out Jansen said “They just lit all of the sparklers, you missed it” My heart completely sunk, but LUCKILY my parents bought double the amount we needed, so there was plenty to do a do-over.
