DIY Wall Garden Favors

DIY Projects

Photos by:

We’re approaching the end of our DIY wedding favor series, but I guarantee you will love our last picks as much as the first ones. These vertical terrarium wedding favors make great gifts because they don’t take any room, and are extremely easy to maintain. Who wouldn’t want to bring a little bit of the outdoors to their home or office?

– Gravel (can be found at any pet store in the aquarium section)
– Air plants, cactus or succulents (you will need a small amount of potting soil if not using air plants)
– Moss
– spray paint
– magnetic metal tins (from here or here, you just need to slap magnetic tape on the back!)
– Dremel tool
– painter’s tape
– E6000 glue

Cover your tins with painter’s tape before you begin spray painting the inside of them. Spray tins with 3-4 light coats until they have are opaque in solid white. While your tins are drying, remove the acrylic top from all lids by putting a small amount of pressure with your hands to pop them off. Measure the diameter and mark a line with a permanent marker. Using the diamond cutter tip of your Dremel tool, slice all acrylic lids in halves (you can also try different shapes or drill holes). Lightly sand the edges using a sander tip of your Dremel tool.

Place acrylic tops back in the metal frame of the caps and glue both pieces. We also recommend dabbing the edges of the tins with a q-tip with glue to seal the lids to prevent the weight from the gravel popping out of the containers. It took one wall terrarium to splash gravel all over the floor for us to figure that out :)

Once your tins are dry from spray paint, remove tape and wash tins with water and soap. Close all tins, now with open front lids. Add gravel, misty moss and air plants. If you prefer building a closed terrarium and skipping cutting the lids, you will need activated charcoal, which can be found in the aquarium section at any pet store. Air plants won’t work well in closed containers, so you may want to switch to ferns and small leafy plants.

Candy Colored Wedding Inspiration in Charlotte

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Few wedding themes conjure up the idea of a fun time better than “candy colored,” and that’s exactly what we got with The Big Fake Wedding’s second trip to Charlotte, North Carolina. Bright pinks and purples, watercolor accents, and a sweetheart table surrounded by a greenery pergola to add a secret garden effect are just a few of the details that make this event a favorite!

Plan My Wedding Please

Ever since I was in grade school, I was obsessed with my penmanship. I would not turn in my homework until it was perfect; it drove my mom crazy! I practiced writing every chance I had and eventually fell in love with this art form. Little did I know, it would be the reason I would fall in love with the wedding industry.

Plan My Wedding Please exists to make every wedding and event magical. My role as wedding planner and calligraphy artist, as cliche as it sounds, is to make your wildest dreams come true. From the little details in signage and invitations, to the big details in wedding gowns, caterers and florals, every detail is important. Every young girl dreams of her wedding day, and I am here to make those dreams become reality. I look forward to working with you!

Slovak Mountain Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Peter & Veronika

Both the bride and groom in today’s wedding are architects – but perhaps you could tell after seeing how much thought and detail went into the wedding day. Peter & Veronika photographed their wedding in the Stupava mountains of Slovakia, which is one dreamy destination if we’ve ever seen one.

From the photographers, Peter & Veronika: Lubka and Martin. She is an architect, he is an architect. Their wedding was perfect, thought out to the last detail. But what else would you expect from two architects? :) The church was beautiful, wonderfully lighted and spacious. And the reception? It was in Stupava mountains, beautiful nature and the place was obviously once again full of light and spacious. It was the intention of architects? Maybe yes, maybe no. But what we know for sure is that the wedding was beautiful, amazing, cheerful, spontaneous, and we felt with them fantastically. Lubka was a gorgeous bride who shone for 100 km and Martin was the happiest man in the whole region.

They say that opposites attract, but we are of the opinion that what is more similar to a partner, the better you understand. If your job becomes a common hobby and vice versa, your common hobby is your job, so you can always understand and support each other. And this is also the case of Lubica and Martin. It might sound like a cliché, but we wish them to build a solid foundation for a common home, family and common life together. And let them come out all they’ll design.

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.
