A Bohemian DIY Wedding III

Our table settings were made from varying sizes of beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks and graduated cylinders I ordered online, a nod to a photographer’s darkroom supplies.  Our florist, Cachet Fiore, did an incredible job of capturing the relaxed, desert vibe we were going for.  The table numbers were plywood pieces with different photographs (all taken by Jasper) on each table. All in all, we just wanted everyone to have a great time…and hopefully, they did!

I’m excited to announce Denise will be joining us again very soon with a few DIY projects. I was so impressed by the creative charm and originality behind her wedding I couldn’t resist asking if she had any other wonderful projects up her sleeve and lucky for us she does.

Also, if you’re in the market for a bit of inspiration for a wedding website, you should definitely check out Denise Hearts Jasper. It is definitely one of my favorite wedding websites to date. Thank you again Denise and Jasper for letting me share your beautiful wedding on Once Wed today. And to their photographer, kzphoto, for the amazing images!

    Erlenmeyer flasks! What an amazing idea. My FI is pre-vet Bio, and I’m a Psychology major. We would love that. :)

    I’m loving this trend of out of the box weddings lately. Thanks for continuing with the lovely inspiration!

    @nichole: jasper designed/coded the site himself…glad you like it!

    @jessica: we made them ourselves…i’d give you ours but i left them with the florists! it’s super easy and quick – the burlap is only about $1 or so a yard online and it only took us about an hour or to make enough for 8 tables. i then just cut them into 15″ wide strips, leaving the edges bare. it does smell a bit strongly at first, so i recommend you air them out beforehand!

    mmm, how delicious. i love everything about it! what a very merry un-wedding…so refreshing. one of my favorite touches was the mix CD that went out with the invites. so i have to know: what song serenaded your first dance? (if you had one.)

    thanks so much for sharing!

    I love everything about this wedding! It has been a while since it was posted, but where did you find the metal hangers for the photo and table number? I have been searching for something similar, then came across your posting…any help?
