Have you ever thought of getting married or having your reception at home? Well, have I got a treat in store for you today from One Love Photo. When Heather first sent over images from Shaylah and Jon’s darling wedding, I’m pretty sure I let out a small scream of excitement. Celebrations like this are the reason I love my job. The bride, Shaylah, was kind enough to send over some fun details behind their wedding…

We were inspired by the scene in ‘Big Fish’ where everyone ate pie and danced barefoot. So, I wanted that relaxed home party feel along with a big fun art project. So, we gathered our amazing and talented friends to take part in the festivities. We had craft parties where we made hundreds of pom poms and had great friends (who are also carpenters) make a magnificent wedding arch. I had my nana sew all of the vintage fabric pockets for the invitations, while Jon (my husband) hand typed every invitation (which was also our love story) on the typewriter he writes all of his love letters on.

I love the paper pom-poms! Does anyone have a good set of instructions for making those? I would love to incorporate them into our reception next summer.

hello brittany!

the flowers are peonies and ranunculus. we went to whole foods and ordered in bulk and then my bridesmaids put everything together the night before. whole foods will do anything they can to get the flowers you want- even if they come from Holland!!

Emily, it’s super easy: layers of tissue paper that you fold into an accordion. Wrap a wire of some sort around the middle. Shape the ends of you’re accordion (leave’em square, make’em round, triangle, whatever you want). Then separate the layers and open them up so it becomes round.

That scene in Big Fish was in my inspiration folder, too! Love this bride’s dress, and her bridesmaids look super cute.

Too much patience for me (and besides, my backyard looks more like a mudpit that an exotic location!) but they’ve done a really fantastic job of it! | Reply

I LOVE THIS WEDDING. And that chapel! Looks too adorable to be real.
