Favorite Wedding DIY Tutorials Part II

26 Sep

Welcome to my second in a series of my favorite DIY wedding decor and ideas culled from Pinterest. You can see Part I here.

DIY flower crown from Honestly…WTF:

Mason jars may have had their 15 minutes already, but I still love them, and they are so multi-purpose, and they are better any color you want them (I did this for my wedding last year–beware Vitreous paint in the stove can be really fume-y!). Tutorial at julie ann art:

A new take… Gorgeous Mason Jar & Doily Luminaries by Crafts by Amanda at Sparkle & Hay:

I have been dying to make these since I saw this tutorial on etsy!

Paper carnations are a simple, inexpensive DIY decor piece that can go a long way… At Oh Hello Friend courtesy of the Gilded Bee.

Perfect for a laid-back bridal shower, at Richellephant:

Love the idea of re-using old T-shirts and making poms at Craftaholics Anonymous!

Some sweet mood lighting at Free Pretty Things for You:

Such a pretty idea at Glamour & Grace:

Favorite Wedding DIY Tutorials Part I

24 Sep

I’ve been a little obsessed with Pinterest lately, and I’ve been saving up some of my favorite DIY wedding and decor tutorials to share with you. Luckily, Super 8 film fans–brides and grooms–are also usually very artsy/craftsy people, so I love sharing my finds with them! Hopefully you’ll find something here to inspire you…

A chevron tray from Martha Stewart would be delightful on a dessert table:

A lovely centerpiece idea from Oh Hello Friend:

Lots of sweet wedding ribbon ideas from Intimate Weddings:

DIY Cupcake Stand Tutorial from the Tomkat Studio:

Another centerpiece idea from Happiness Is:

Simple garland from Free Pretty Things for You:

Fabric Flower Garland from Free Pretty Things for You:

Stay tuned for Part II on Monday!

Nostalgia Film Fall Update

We have been staying busy at Nostalgia Film as summer turns into fall! We recently shot a yoga tutorial for the web for the lovely Maya at Breathe Eat Dance Evolve, which we cannot wait to finish editing to share with you.

We have been booking weddings for spring and fall of 2012, and are entering the fall 2011 wedding season. We still have dates available, including some availability in 2011, so please contact us.

We also have some sweet family Super 8 film footage we shot earlier this month, which we hope to share soon. We were lucky enough to travel to Nevada and Arizona, and see the Grand Canyon for the first time. We have some HD footage of that to share, too, and I have a couple of Holga photographs from the trip, below, complete with lots of fun light leaks and effects.

Texas Hill Country | The August Break

We recently got to spend a weekend with friends out at the cabins where we got married on the San Gabriel River in Liberty Hill, Texas. I had just found a vintage Diana camera (from the  ’60s probably) on eBay, and I took it along to capture some images. There is still a little water in poor drought-stricken Texas as you can see… just a little bit.
