If you’re heading out for supplies to make our last two DIYs, you might wanna save yourself the second trip and add crepe paper + mason jars now, ‘cause this is a good one.

Awhile aback, DIY pro Valerie Lloyd of Smile Mercantile showed us how to make these DIY paper roses, a project that has since been the inspiration behind many a beautiful bouquet. We’re super happy to say Valerie has a new project to share—these pretty little luminaries—that she designed for a fancy Monet-inspired dinner party. There’s room for one more DIY in the wedding timeline, yes?

A crisp white wedding gown, lace bridesmaid dresses, and this clean white altar = one elegant way to ensure that the colorful wildflowers abound in this Australia wedding would really pop. And boy did they pop! You’ll probably want to run to the market for flowers of your own after checking out Marcus + Steph’s vibrant wedding below. They really are that good.

Thanks to Jerome Cole Photography for sending this one our way!

Photog Jerome explains the bridal look: Steph looked stunning; her gown had a sleek, simple silhouette, yet was intricately detailed with white-on-white textural patterns. Her elaborate headpiece was the perfect accompaniment and became a feature of her outfit, in an elegant and understated manner. Steph handcrafted it from her mother’s wedding veil, skillfully combining her contemporary look with a meaningful, vintage touch.

Playful, quirky, & handmade details could be found all over the ceremony + reception, from revamped chairs via eBay to a wheelbarrow for drinks, to these fun signs placed throughout the venue.

A few words from the bride, on documenting the big day… We had a photographer, videographer and photobooth. Sounds like a lot but we have captured so many aspects of the day that Marcus and I would never have seen, and will have these forever.

Congrats Stephanie + Marcus!

Whether or not you’re all about those garden florals, you gotta admit: a greenhouse is a pretty amazing place to say I do. Big glass doors, lush greenery abound, love in bloom, you get the idea. Kate of Kate Hubler Photography + Xiomara of A Styled Fete totally get that, so they chose the conservatory at Rockwood Mansion in Delaware to bring their vision of a spring love story to life.

Oh, and a mint green façade? Major bonus.

From Kate: The table was set with a blush colored floral runner, stunning centerpieces in mercury glass vases, adorable bridal plates from BHLDN that said “ I do” and “Me Too,” vintage silverware, candle sticks set in moss, and champagne goblets filled with rose colored champagne and topped with a floral accent.
