Real wedding: Katie + Ian


My dearest friend Christina recently got engaged, and I couldn’t be happier! I’m super excited because she’s asked me to help with the wedding. And while we’re complete opposites [read: day and night] I think it will really get my creative juices flowing. I’m looking forward to sharing what inspiration I find for her! First off is this fabulous wedding from the latest MS Weddings…Christina and her fiance love nature and the outdoors so that will play a HUGE part in their wedding…check out that woodgrain cake and those matching invites!

Real wedding: Sarai + Kenn








Sarai of Sweet Sassafras emailed me last week with pictures of her fabulous, handmade wedding, and I just had to share! I won’t gush too much, but this girl is now my craft-idol!! She made everything from her dress and hat, to arranging the flowers. Proof that you CAN have an amazing, handmade affair, and live to tell the tale! You can find more images and information on her site and on flickr.

Hi! I was recently married, and wanted to say thank you for all the
wonderful inspiration your blog provided in the last few months of
wedding planning. Our wedding was amazing, thanks in part to
inspiration from blogs like yours. :)

We had a very personal wedding, with lots of participation from our
friends and a whole lot of hand crafted details. A friend officiated,
another friend made the desserts, another did the sound and video, and
lots of people helped us set up and decorate. I made my own dress and
hat (we asked all the guests to wear hats), the invitations, the table
runners, the table numbers, the place cards, and arranged all the
flowers. It was an intense amount of crafting, but the final result
was so meaningful. I wouldn’t have done it any other way. Oh, and we
had a photobooth, which I highly recommend!

Real wedding: Minhee + Truman






You may have seen this wedding before, but its worth mentioning again. Minhee + Truman of Paper+Cup Design in Brooklyn had a killer, school themed wedding [they met in grade school, hence, school theme] with details right down to the placemats.

Real wedding: Sara + Ev







Normally I dont like doing 2 real wedding inspirations in one week…but this one was too good to pass up.
I’m totally jealous of this wedding! Ev and Sara had a great event with lots of personal touches…check out the cake toppers! They match their outfits! And those table numbers? Incredible! They even rock-paper-scissored to see who would get to say their vows first….how cute is that?! In case you didn’t know, Ev is one of the guys that invented Blogger…thanks Ev!

Real wedding: Kathy + Shane



I love the homemade feeling of Kathy and Shane’s wedding….Kathy sewed the invitations and ring pillow herself, and all the colors and pattern tied in with the inspirational vintage cloth. Love it!
