Paper flowers are a hot topic in the wedding world right now! We’ve been seeing them all over, and we bet that you’re just as enthralled with them as we are! From their beautiful shapes to the statement they make, we can’t get enough of the handmade touch that paper blooms bring to a wedding. And, while a lot of tutorials showed women cutting out flower shapes and petals for what must have been hours, we wanted to offer a more time friendly version of the craft so even the time strapped (or novice DIY) bride could create the look with confidence! Hence our Parisian Love Letter Paper Blooms were born!!! And today, we’re showing you just how to make stunning bouquets and a boutonniere with these handy little blooms for that extra special handmade touch on your wedding day. So get your crafty pants on, it’s time to become a wedding DIY diva!

This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”

You can`t achieve a nautical theme much better than by getting married on a 100` private yacht. Patrice and James did exactly that! They were married by the Captain and wove the sea into all their decor.
