Two words: Paper flowers. We all know that I'm a huge fan of them, and this rustic wedding photographed by Eclectic Images is decorated with the coolest paper flowers made out of storybook pages. Believe it or not, the bride, Emily and her bridesmaids actually made them all by hand using a DIY tutorial featured on 100 Layer Cake! I love to see brides take those DIY tutorials we always feature on wedding blogs, use them and actually succeed in creating something beautiful and budget-friendly.
Emily placed the paper roses that I love so much into mason jars along with sprinklings of baby's breath. The mason jars were hung along the ceremony aisle leading up to the oh-so-pretty and lit large oak tree where her and Brian were married. The paper flower arrangements also made an appearance later on at the wedding reception, with handmade mercury glass mason jars (a la 17 Apart) and burlap table runners (sewn by the mother of the bride). The rustic style of the wedding was also showcased in the loose, "just picked" flower bouquets by Something Special in Flowers featuring white hydrangea, dahlias, lisianthis, daisies, succulents, curly willow and touches of greenery and berries. From the beautifully decorated oak tree, the natural taupe color palette, and the charming wooden signage, this rustic wedding planned by Perfectly Planned Event is a perfect example of a stylish and cohesive wedding done right.
