Behind The Scenes: Fringe
Posted by Erin Furey
For our Spring 2011 Fringe story, we teamed up with Confetti System. The result was one of our most original and inspired takes on weddings yet!
1 Check out our inspiration board.
2 Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho of Confetti System assess their ceremony marker.
3 Julie applied fringe in layers to create the photo-booth backdrop the night before the shoot.
4 The talented Sarah Maingot shot the story.
5 We ordered colorful rolls of raffia from Raffit Ribbons to make fringy flowers.
6 Here, Julie cuts gold fringe for the photo-booth backdrop.
7 We mapped out the looks for each page.
8 Katie arranged tulips with fringed and frayed edges for a bouquet.
9 Aren't these tulips lovely? They were so perfect for the story.
11 Busy bees: Kate, Julie, and Nick craft away.
17 Air from a ceiling vent was blowing the fringe all about -- Nick blocked the flow like a pro.
18 Fresh from the kitchen, Elizabeth Colling made us these coconut-fringed treats.
21 Our festive mess.
23 Here, blue, pink, and gold confetti to throw at the new bride and groom.
24 I love these frilly escort cards.
25 The best way to steam a wedding dress is to hang it from a high place. That way, the weighty skirt can flow free and help pull out any wrinkles.
27 Nick, Julie, and Kate work on the bride's bouquet. See the fringed tie?
29 I stepped in to fix some tangled fringe.
31 Sarah and Julie perfected the drinks and their tasseled garnishes.
33 Nick placed the final touch on Elizabeth's cake.
34 It took a full team effort to create the perfect amount of "shimmy" behind the cake.
35 In the evening light, the ceremony structure looked even more beautiful.
