A Texan Etsy Wedding

Real Weddings

This wedding sent by Abdi of Three Photographers of his friend and Texan photographer Jackie Ray is the sweetheart of all weddings. Pinwheels were incorporated as the groomsmen’s boutonnieres and used as bridesmaids bouquets, as well as decoration for their wedding cake. Plus, I don’t think I will ever tire of the bright combo of yellow and gray.

From the bride: The style we envisioned was fun, traditional, but with a few twists.  We tried to do things that were nostalgic and we mismatched things.

We used yellow and gray as our colors. Every dress was different for our bridesmaids, along with the junior bridesmaids and flower girl.  We also had a painting done of me and my Husband. Since I am a photographer I wanted to do something unique and again something that was kind of old school and unexpected.

Advice from the bride: Do the little details.  It makes all the difference.  Having a color scheme made my planning so much easier.  I really enjoyed the Vera Wang bridesmaids dresses.  They had an edgy look. Also, let your bridesmaids pick their dresses!  They will really appreciate it!

    I absolutely adored working with this bride. These were my first pinwheel boutonnieres and I was so pleased with the results, I added them to my shop. It is so wonderful to see how it all came together. Congratulations!
