Paper Roses – Wedding Edition
Wedding bells are ringing! On June 6, 2014, my husband and I got married in a perfect little ceremony just south of Niagara Falls. If you are an Ontario bride-to-be, be sure check out our amazing venue, Elope Niagara – recommend 100% if you want a stress-free wedding with gorgeous photography included! The first two photos featured here are professional photos.
One of my favourite elements of our wedding was the DIY flowers provided by my close friend and Craftcore guest blogger, Michelle Beausejour. She made me custom paper roses, hand dyed in shades of blue and beige. The stem was bound with twine for a rustic look. The paper was purposefully selected from a French language edition of The Secret Garden. The perfect touch was the matching paper boutineer for my husband.
After the wedding, I went to a local thrift store and found a vase tinted the perfect shade of blue. I will treasure the bouquet always as a memento from the wedding. I love that it will last a long time.
