Cornelia + Paul’s wedding is srsly the cutest. Right down to every last hand-cut, hand-folded, and hand-crafted DIY detail! Yeah, these two got pretty crafty in the 6 months leading up to their big day. The key idea was to make all the décor themselves, with oversized paper flowers as the main features. We also think it’s pretty cool that they got hitched in a ‘luxury trailer park,’ full of fun, artist-decorated airstreams. You don’t hear that one everyday. Here’s a look at it all from Dear Heart Photos

Paper flowers, galore! Cornelia says, Paul and I (along with our close friends, Carin and JP) made all the paper flowers, pinwheels, origami foxes, confetti, seating chart, paper menu’s etc. Our flat was in total chaos for 6 months prior to the wedding, as we hosted a number of craft days with our friends. The parties were filled with laughter, glue gun fumes, and sparkling wine, because the intention was always to have fun!

Some advice from the bride: Enjoy the planning of your wedding. It’s fun to spend time and brainstorm with your fiancé. Accept and ask friends and family to help, especially with DIY projects! Also, only pay a 50 percent deposit for services prior to the wedding—we learned this the hard way. Lastly, try to relax and enjoy!

Congrats lovebirds!

We knew we weren’t the only ones who watched Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette and immediately had a little party theme! light bulb light up above our heads. We mean… macarons, champagne, and a playful color palette? It was just waiting to happen. And since this little party that Elle Affairs, Mary Margaret Smith Photography, Morgan Trinker, and friends threw was to welcome their pal Kelly home from Paris, it was all the more fitting. Check it out…

Morgan says, We are all part of a group for creative female entrepreneurs here in Birmingham, Alabama called Curtsy. Our friend Kelly, a wedding photographer, had the idea for the group when she saw a need for a solid support system in our local wedding industry. We regularly meet and discuss all the ins and outs of small business ownership, as well as teach each other our crafts. (We’ve learned how to letterpress, make floral arrangements, create simple up dos, etc.) Earlier this year, Kelly and her husband traveled to France for two months, so to celebrate her return and thank her for starting Curtsy, the girls and I decided to throw her a surprise welcome home party.

The girls decorated the wall with a collage of Kelly’s Instagram prints from her trip to France. Too cute!
