Katie is a girl of simple, elegant, straightforward tastes. She knows exactly what she wants and how she wants it. So when she came to me to design her wedding, she had a very clear vision for her wedding day. Katie was looking for classic, modern elegance drenched with her favorite color, yellow, and accented with navy blue and light gray.
I was designing her wedding, though, so not everything was going to be clean lines and simple patterns! Like Katie herself, we agreed there should be just a touch of whimsy. We made that happen with the magic of paper!
Paper is a fantastic, cheap, and beautiful alternative to flowers when your budget is a little tight. Don’t get me wrong – flowers are terribly important (*ahem* Check out her bouquet chocked FULL of yellow ranunculus), but really beautiful paper can create amazing texture as well.
We designed a classic, cohesive ceremony and reception look with handmade paper puffs as the focal point for the ceremony and accenting each table. Paired with larger suspended paper puffs and paper lanterns hung from the ceiling, these little details made her special day really pop – a fun, unique touch against an otherwise simple, straightforward backdrop!
