From Keira, the bride:
Dan is actually the crafty one in our home. He made the Save the Dates and place cards himself and also designed the images for the temporary tattoos we handed out. I love DIY, but I am hopeless with crafts. I guess I am more of a do-it-for-me person (DIFM?). We used a lot of great Etsy vendors for the bridesmaid dresses, temporary tattoos, and other decorations. Etsy is addictive and invaluable for party planning. I was lucky enough to have some amazing and talented friends offer to help–2 of them were so inspired by this that they have started their own Etsy shops! We also chose vendors that really find the art in everything they do. This meant a lot of “what do you think of this?” back and forth emails and a ton of inspiration images. It resulted in an amazing group of people who were really invested in our wedding.
Here’s the video in Super 8mm film by Megan from Hello Super 8. It will give you a more comprehensive idea of how fun this wedding was! Also, turn up the volume because “Hotel Yorba” by the White Stripes is perfect for the video.
