Born from the Sea Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

If you’re wondering how to make a beach wedding elegant, look no further than this styled shoot from Lavender & Twine Photography, Shindig Fancy by Crystal Huber, and Rockrose Floral Design. This creative team of California vendors made their way to Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara to put together a wedding so romantic a sea nymph herself couldn’t have planned it better.

From the event stylist, Shindig Fancy by Crystal Huber: “Born from the Sea” was my guiding inspiration throughout the planning of this styled wedding shoot. The coastal elements of floating drift wood, light and frothy sea-foam, fresh seaweed, and cool smooth sand were all incorporated in the details. It all started when Daniele and I fell in love with the airy fabric and soft details of the Parisian Princess Gown from Claire La Faye, and right away knew it deserved to be the centerpiece of a seaside shoot.

With the gown in the back of my mind, I decided on a diverse color pallet of blues, greys, tan, white, green, and a hint of blush and coral. I decided to use create an intimate “sweetheart table” for the bride and groom, creating a tablescape from trinkets and vintage silver goblets that looked like they could have been plucked from the sea. The ladies at Rockrose created a spectacular arrangement in a hand-carved walnut wood bowl for the centerpiece that brought everything together. Everything from the delicate invitation suite and the three-tiered cake brushed with the perfect shade of blue, to the stunning headpieces you see on the bride and the cake came together and brought the entire vision to life.

Flower and Herb Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

We couldn’t talk about Spring without thinking of growing a garden, so this flower & herb setting that Kim Fisher Designs created for us is just perfect timing with the new season. We love that the inspiration is not just limited to the decor, but it carries on to the taste buds as well. We can only imagine the yummy aroma from these images taken by Theo Milo Photography at the Shelton Herb Farm.

From the event designer, Kim Fisher: For this shoot, we wanted a romantic dinner for two with locally sourced herbs and winter blooming camellias. The menu included sparkling wine, Meyer lemon and herb infused olives, baby portobello mushrooms on rosemary skewers, vegetable Tian (basically a deconstructed ratatouille), herb roasted Cornish hens with garlic and sprouts,finished with blue cheese/fig compote and a chocolate ganache topped with raspberries surrounded by a bed of rosemary.

We fashioned a boutonniere of fragrant thyme, basil, and rosemary with nasturtium greens, and the head wreath is rosemary and winter blooming camellias. The centerpiece florals are several different kinds of thyme and sage along with rosemary and camellias and the glass cloches have beautiful winter blooming moss and herbs. We included wedding favors – small tubes of wisteria seeds (gathered from our yard) with some moss and the tags are simply left over brown paper with my squiggly hand writing, which I also used for menus.

We spy a few chandeliers for sale, tapered candles and lots of vintage glitzy items. There are also gorgeous gowns for sale, but can we talk about the dapper groom below for a quick sec? So so SO in love with his 50s glam look – even his stephanotis boutonniere is classic 1950s!

This wedding brings together the best of both worlds: A+ vendors and DIY charm. The couple, Anna and Jeremy, brought their love of the outdoors to their wedding, utilizing lush moss, little birdies, and, of course, the plentiful trees surrounding their venue. Oh, and… they were married in a castle. Cool much? Top it all off, they used one of Carolynn of Two Brunettes’ downloads for their wedding paper goods. We will be adding an editable version of these darling free downloads this afternoon, so check back soon for the release. Thanks to Sophie Jacobson of Love Bucket Photo for sharing her photos with us!

From the bride, Anna: We really love nature and the outdoors, so we wanted to incorporate that in as many ways as we could. We used lots of moss, trees, and little birds. I took a lot of inspiration from wedding blogs and used things other people did, but adapted them to fit our color theme. I am also a really crafty person, so wanted to make as much as I could, which ended up being all of the decorations… I wanted the opportunity to get better at things like sewing, so I sewed a lot! In the end, the inspiration was ourselves! We wanted the wedding to really represent us.

After the ceremony Jeremy and I went up to the “bridal suite” and just took a few minutes together. We cried together about being married and how happy we were. I was nice to take that time away right after.

Anna’s advice for future brides: Make sure your dress is comfortable. Also, make sure you enjoy yourself and focus on the marriage. Since we put so much work into it, I was more concerned about everyone else having a good time, and it was hard for me to really relax until it was all over. Oh, also, you should LOVE your vendors. They are so involved in your day that you want them to feel invested in the wedding, and really a part of it.

The groom, Jeremy, describes his favorite memory of the wedding day: Sitting by myself after getting dressed and making a short video for my wife-to-be on my iPhone about how much I loved her and how I couldn’t wait to be her husband for the rest of my life. I sent it to her just before I walked down the aisle.

Jeremy, the groom, also includes his advice for brides and grooms alike: My advice would be to enjoy the experience as much as possible. It’s oftentimes easy to get wrapped up in the financial or planning aspects of a wedding, but when it all comes together on your wedding day and you finally see the fruits of your labor – it all becomes worth it.

Those amazing bouquets are all made out of PAPER FLOWERS. Isn’t that incredible? And I’m absolutely ga-ga over the boutonnieres the couple handmade for the groom and his groomsmen. Made out of buttons, feathers and twigs, they really set the tone for the aesthetics of the whole wedding.

Because the bride is in pharmacy school, the couple chose to incorporate vintage apothecary jars into their centerpiece decor. What a great idea! They look lovely with all their different shapes and sizes. The couple also constructed the pennants from fabric and clothes from Goodwill and crafted all the paper pom poms.

Any advice for brides to be? See your future spouse BEFORE the ceremony. Get ready, go see them. This helps SO much in getting rid of weird butterflies, anxiety, etc… and this is the ONLY HOUR that you get to spend with that person ALONE. It is SO important!

Fabric Flower:
1. Cut a 1” x 8” piece of fabric.
2. Fold in half lengthwise and sew a running stitch through the open edge. Don’t forget to put a knot at the end of the thread.
3. Pull the thread through and scrunch back the fabric until it gathers into a circle. Sew the ends together to finish the flower.
4. Insert artificial stamens (as many as you like) through the center and secure them in by gluing from the back side.

Rick Rack Flower:
1. Cut rick rack to a length with 10-15 curves on one side (between 4”-6”).
2. Sew a running stitch through the curves on one side. It is best to fold this curve in half and go in and out through it.
3. Scrunch back the rick rack until it forms an “ssss” shape.
4. Join the ends and form a flower. Use fabric glue to secure the stitch and prevent the ribbon ends from fraying.
5. Insert artificial stamens through the center and secure with fabric glue from the back.

Creating the boutonniere:
1. Gather and arrange 4-5 flowers in your hand.
2. Use a 6” piece of floral wire to give shape to the “stems” by wrapping the stamens. It is best to start at the base of the flowers and wrap down to the bottom of the stem.
3. Wrap with floral tape to even out the wire and secure the stem.
4. Use the glue gun to secure the decorative ribbon onto the stem. It is easiest to add a small strip at the bottom first and then wrap from the base of the flower to the bottom of the stem.
5. Add a small bow just below the flowers.
6. Fix on the pin backing with the hot glue gun to the back of the stem.

Tips:
– Consider varying the length of the rick rack and the size (medium or mini) to provide some dimension.
-You cannot fabric glue too much from the backside. Okay, you can, but so long as you cannot see if from the front, feel free to use it liberally to ensure a long lasting and sturdy piece.
– Use these flowers as your heart desires. You can make a head band, napkin ring, brooch or even a bouquet!
– Experiment with the width and length of the fabric to create more or less pleats or a bigger or smaller flower.ribbon rickrack boutonniere

diy woodsy guinea feather boutonniere

What you’ll need:
– 3 sprigs of a hearty stemmed herb, such as rosemary, as used here, lavender, thyme, etc.
– 2-3 small/baby magnolia leaves
– 4-6 birch branch tips, or curly willow tips or any small twig tips found outside!
– 2 pins
– ½ yard of vintage ribbon

– Scissors
– Floral tape (can be found at craft stores)

rosemary groom boutonniere
guinea feather rosemary wedding bout

Instructions:
Step 1: Take 2 small magnolia leaves, turning one back side up, hold ends of leaves together and tape with floral tape. Floral tape is tacky and sticks to itself, it may take a couple tries, but just pull the tape and wrap around and it should hold!
Step 2: Cut the feather down to appropriate size for the boutonnière and attach using the same technique with floral tape.
Step 3: Take 4-6 twig tips and trim down to appropriate size. Tape together with floral tape and then attach to rest of boutonnière, again using floral tape.
Step 4: Take 2-3 herb sprigs, trim to size and strip any foliage that will be taped and place on boutonnière and tape in place.
Step 5: Take ribbon and leaving one end at the top, wrap from the bottom up, tie into a small knot and trim ends at an angle.
Step 6: Insert pins and your fabulous fall inspired boutonnière is ready to wear!

Such types of boutonnières are very hearty and can be made days ahead of an event. Just spritz with water, place in a zip lock baggie and place in the Frigidaire!

DIY Pinwheel Pins

Dormain’s pinwheel pins can be made so all guests can feel they’re part of the bridal party.

pinwheel boutonniere

What you’ll need:
– Origami paper (4.5”x4.5”)
– Buttons
– Large round pin backing
– Cutting mat,
– X-acto or snap blade
– ruler
– PVA glue, E6000 glue
– Needle, thread.
– Optional: heavy duty paper awl, bookbinding needle and thread (instead of other needle and thread)
(All supplies are readily available in most arts & crafts stores and/or fabric stores)

pinwheel wedding boutonnieres

Instructions:

Step 1: Measure the origami paper across the diagonal and mark the center point. From about a 1” radius from the center mark, cut along the diagonal to each corner. Dab some PVA glue on the center mark and fold in one of the eight bisected corner sections, so that the point is about a half inch beyond the center of the paper. With a dab of PVA glue between each layer, fold down alternating corner sections (should look like a pinwheel at this point).

Step 2: There are various was to sew the button on to the pinwheel, but here’s how I did it, which minimizes slack in the thread holding the button: Use the paper awl to puncture two holes in the center of the pinwheel (Note: awls make good sized holes, so be sure to space your holes far enough apart to not have them perforate into each other, but not wider than the diameter of the button you are using). Double-knot the end of your book binding thread. From the back of the pinwheel, stitch through the button and back out, gently pulling taut. Since bookbinding thread is nice and thick, sew through the thread, just under the double-knot, and gently pull taut (you should now have a flat bit of thread between the two holes). Tie a knot by looping under the flat bit between the holes, and, before pulling taut, loop back through the slack left on the other side of the flat bit. Trim any excess thread.

Step 3: Put a healthy dollop of E6000 glue on the back of the pinwheel over the knotted area. Lay a clean pin backing and gently press into place (but don’t squish out all the glue – no more than peeking out the edges). Let dry (face down) for at least an hour.

Instructions:

Create mini yarn balls by rolling yarn around in a small ball pulling taught. Once ball is formed cut the yarn and glue end of the mini ball. With the pencil in one hand, wrap a piece floral wire (about 8 inches) around the pencil stopping about 2 inches from the bottom (leaving straight) . Slide the pencil out. Now you have a corkscrew. Put a piece of glue on the top of the corkscrew and insert into mini yarn ball. Make two of these. Bunch them together and wrap the ends with floral tape to make a “stem”. Glue a jewelry pin on the back.

– Feathers
– Faux Berries
– Embellishment/ Scrapbooking Leaves
– Vintage Buttons
– Wooden Flower

 diy groom bout non-floral
 doily DIY groom boutonniere
Instructions:

Step 1. Gather all of your neat supplies and millinery items you have collected and bring them to your work space. Have your glue gun hot and ready!

Step 2. Begin by choosing anything with stems that you will be using for the boutonniere such as leaves or faux berries. Cut/arrange the stems into a position that you like. Take the wire from a stem or floral wire, and begin to wrap around the rest of the wires. You may also use a floral pick or toothpick to wrap the wired stems around. Using a hot glue gun, neatly glue down items without stems such as feathers, ribbon, lace, flowers, or whatever else you plant to use into their desired positions. Only a small dab of glue will be needed to adhere your items down, this will ensure the glue is not visible on your completed boutonniere.

 DIY doily feather boutonniere

Step 3. Once all items are in place, take your floral tape and begin to wrap it around your stems until they are no longer visible. You may want to adjust the length of your stems by cutting them slightly shorter. The average size boutonniere is anywhere between 3 -4 inches long from top to bottom.

 Gold leaf DIY boutonniere groom pin

Step 4. You’re almost done! Once you have chosen your matching ribbon, glue one end of the ribbon at the top of your wires neatly. Glue down so that the ribbon is angled downwards and slowly begin to wrap your ribbon around the floral tape covered stems. The floral tape is sticky but not stick enough to hold down the ribbon so be sure to wrap around snugly.

 DIY vintage millinery boutonniere

Step 5. As you make it to the bottom begin to wrap back up the stem neatly as this will be the pattern you see. Again, pull snugly and space the over lapping ribbon as you desire. For additional embellishment you may add a thin string, or colored wire up the ribbon covered stem for an extra pop of color. In this case I have simply tied a little piece of lace in a knot.

Step 6. You now have your perfectly cute and unique boutonniere. This is sure to be an easy DIY project that is nothing short of fun and creativity!

It’s my first time to WPPI and I even though I thought I’d never say this, I am loving my time in Las Vegas! Ever since I posted this vintage wedding last week, I’ve fallen in love with their animal bouts from Drinking Stars. Their current bouts are themed by touristic locations with a retro flair: Las Vegas and Coney Island. When I spotted the Las Vegas collection I thought it was only appropriate to share! Coney Island themed bouts are perfect for a carnival inspired wedding.

DIY Boutonnieres

Design Inspiration

Photos by:

When I first saw these adorable boutonnieres, I had to ask Stephanie. exactly how she made them. She was very kind to share step by step instructions and photos but you can also find them on her blog.

DIY Boutonniere

What you’ll need:

  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • tape
  • paper & clay flowers (can be found at Michael’s Craft Store)
  • vintage millinery leaves. Purchased from Etsy seller Book Nook Creations.
  • binding ribbon (9 inches long). Purchased from Etsy seller Caramelos
  • accent ribbon (5 inches long). Purchased from Etsy seller Caramelos
  • charms & feathers. Guinea feathers were purchased from Etsy seller The Little Beadhive. Ginkgo leaf and clover charms were purchased from Etsy seller Charms 4 Design.

DIY Boutonnieres

Instructions:

diy-boutonnieres

Step 1: Start by trimming the excess fluff from the guinea feather base. Using the glue gun, hem the edges of the accent ribbon. This method works best for thick textured ribbon like I used here. If using a satin ribbon, try hemming using a needle & thread or burning the edges with a candle to prevent fraying.

Step 2: Gather (2) of the clay flowers & (1) paper flower. Arrange at different heights & secure by wrapping stems together. Add (1) millinery leaf. Wrap the wire base of the millinery leaf securely around the flower bundle. Add trimmed guinea feather to bundle & secure using scotch tape.

Step 3: Using the binding ribbon & glue gun, wrap around the base of the bundle, adding a dot of glue every two rounds or so. This will secure the binding ribbon, preventing it from unraveling while you wrap. Finish with a final dot of glue and press binding ribbon firmly to the bundle base.

Step 4: Tie the accent ribbon into a loose knot & slide over the bundle base. Using the glue gun, add a drop of glue to one of the clay flower leaves & firmly press charm to it.

Thanks Steph for being so thorough!
