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”.

Concertina Press

Sailboats, waves, octopus and jellyfish are just a few of the amazing seaworthy designs featured in Concertina Press’s line of vintage inspired nautical wedding invitations and stationery.

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.

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!
