Whimsical, DIY Wedding Inspiration for Creative Couples

5 Jul

We absolutely love working with creative-minded couples on their wedding films, and we think Super 8 film is the perfect complement to a whimsical, DIY wedding full of handmade, personal touches. In that spirit, I wanted to share our DIY projects from our wedding last year with you here:

I custom made the ringbearer pillow with this fantastic papel picado print I found at Vista Latina. The rings attached for show I’d even made in silversmithing class!

I also made the boutonnieres, as you can see above, for the groom, all of the groomsmen, our ringbearer, and the man of honor. The coordinating papel picado/Dia de Los Muertos ties are from Cyberoptix.

I also made the flower girl’s basket (and hair clip, not pictured here).

With the help of lady pals over coffee the morning of the wedding, I made this bouquet. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! We trimmed the flower budget by buying in bulk from Costco online. Which brings us to our centerpieces…

We hand painted mason jars with aqua vitreous paint, then baked them, and added coordinating ribbons. Then just set a colorful, European-style pre-made bouquet into each one.

You can sort of see in the background the card box I made. I found the base at Hobby Lobby and painted it a coordinating aqua. I handlettered “Cards” and added the same papel picado print as above. Also on top…

…were little skulls I handmade from clay. They kind of look a bit like us…

Above are some signs Michael made for our wedding.

As always, feel free to contact us for creative wedding advice or to grab a cup of coffee and talk about how to perfectly capture your wedding day on Super 8 film or video.
