Hi, lovelies!  I am super excited to start this new series with you guys!  My talented photographer friend, Laurenda Bennett, and I will be bringing you all things DIY weddings.  Every other Wednesday we will be blogging about anything DIY that you can incorporate into your wedding day!

But before we get into the DIY, I need to tell you about my good friend Laurenda, of Laurenda Marie Photography!  She is one talented photog! You know I have a deep love for anything light and airy, I mean…you have seen my website, right?!  I mean, GASP!, her stuff is seriously gorgeous and so me, it’s like she just gets me!  And above all that she is super fun to hang out with!  We have only been friends for a few weeks but we instantly kicked it off!  She is so sweet, so kind and so talented!  If you guys are looking for a photographer for your wedding, hit her up…you won’t be sorry!

The first project comes from our love of summer and now I am desperate for an 80 degree day!  I am also OBSESSED with anything coconut so….. We give you the coconut mojito!  It has mint and coconut and is a little boozy, perfect for a signature cocktail!  Your guests will also be obsessed with this too and probably want several!  Put these in a cute glass and display them on a chic tray…PLUS neutrals are all the rage so they will totally compliment your design!  BONUS:  they are super easy to make!  Keep scrolling to get the recipe!
