This week I want to highlight one of our amazing sponsors, Sora Designs. If you’re looking for a unique piece of jewelry with a whimsical touch, look no further. From fluttering hummingbirds, to gilded butterflies and blooming vintage enameled flowers, Sora Designs features exquisite handmade craftsmanship with fanciful features. The best part? The pieces are not only delightful, but also affordable!

The designer, Yueh-Wen Chang (aka Wen), has harnessed the best of vintage repurposed materials to create one of a kind jewelry pieces. Each piece is crafted to perfection by Wen whose ethos is written right in the brand name. The Japanese word for “sky” is Sora and, for Wen, that has always meant that the “Possibilities are as open as the sky”.

Whimsical Garden-Party Wedding II

Garden Weddings, Real Weddings

Jenna and Dustin had a whimsical garden-party theme which transported their guests into a wedding wonderland! Check out that antique door set-up! It was placed at the entrance to the reception, where guests passed through it underneath a swarm of fluttering paper butterflies. Lang Photographers were on hand to capture all the darling details.


DIY vintage wedding details

A little more info straight from the bride, Jenna:

We made all of the centerpieces for the tables from logs at my cabin from an old tree. My mom took a drill and put holes in the logs for the tables (so we could put flowers in the holes). She also put varnish down the holes so they would hold water for the flowers. She’s amazing!

My sister made all of the butterflies (from music sheets) that hung from the old doors at the entrance of our reception.

Some advice from Jenna:

Plan, plan, plan! But don’t overdo it, stay happy during your engagement. You’re only engaged once, and when you get stressed over planning, you’re most likely not happy. Sometimes you’ve got to let go of that small stuff. And on your wedding day, plan for not everything to go smoothly, but ignore it! It’s literally the most fun day ever!
