What inspires us? You do! We love seeing how real brides use our ideas. So I was jazzed to hear from Erin Gouveia. Erin, who happens to be a wedding photographer, fell so much in love with Jodi Levine's wedding when it was featured in our magazine that she used it as the starting point for her own big day. She told me that she handmade a bunch of crepe-paper flowers for her beachy wedding nearly 10 years ago at Darlington House in La Jolla, California. Here's the scoop.
Says Erin, "The crepe-paper flowers were used mostly as garland to hang on the iron fences and arch in the garden on the property. My toss bouquet was made up of about 10 crepe-paper flowers all with fortunes attached. And the pens for our "message in a bottle" guest book were topped with crepe-paper flowers."
