Crafty Seattle wedding: Hollin + Eric

August 18, 2009

Hollin sent her wedding over last week and we’ve been dying to post it for you all to ogle (had to collect some details, you know). She and her sister Keiko (who we discovered has a great blog and etsy shop!) have apparently been reading our little blog from the beginning (awwww, thanks girls!) and it allegedly (partially) inspired the two of them to make Hollin’s wedding the most crafty cute celebration Seattle has ever seen. Warms the very cockles of our collective heart to hear that we in some way encouraged such beautiful love celebration! Though, we’re thinking that someone who could put together a wedding like this didn’t need much in the way of blog inspiration.


Hollin and Eric did so much themselves, it’s almost too much to bear. But we’re going to list all the projects anyway because it makes you appreciate their efforts so much more.


Both the groomsmen and bridesmaids attire were put together for $75. Dude! Way to go you guys. The groomsmen outfits came from Urban Outfitters and the ribbon boutonnieres were made by both Hollin and Eric.

Hollin and her mom made the bridesmaids dresses themselves. Plus Hollin made them each a hairpiece from vintage millinery supplies.


Hollin’s dress came from Portland designer Holly Stalder, her tights are from LoveColour-LoveTights, her shoes from Nordstrom and her veil she made herself using vintage materials.

Their super cute invites were done by Anna Hurley. They’re so perfect aren’t they?


For favors Hollin’s sister, Keiko, gocco’d bags of coffee and tea to go with their morning theme. They also made ribbon dowels to decorate the ceremony walkway and Hollin’s dad and the groomsmen made the chuppah, using thrifted lace curtains and tablecloths to drape over the top of the frame.
