If there’s one thing I get super excited about when reading through the bio’s of the weddings that you lovely crafties send in, it’s the words “graphic designer.” Because it never fails that when a graphic designer takes on a DIY wedding, it’s going to be crazy good! Erica + Alex certainly did not disappoint! Flipping through Gabriel Harber’s Photography’s gallery of this modern and colorful wedding I almost felt I had been whisked away to Oz. Transported to a land of protea, ranunculus, and succulents, Oh My! And chanting “I wish I was at this photobooth, I wish I was at this photobooth…” Erica + Alex’s wedding is a contemporary dream land of ruby red slippers, bright florals and fringed backdrops that is sure to get rid of any wicked witches that may be trying to keep you down. (Oh, and “Toto” has never looked so cute.)
Our beautiful bride Erica is the designer behind all of the creative goodness you see here today. You can see why I get so excited about a designer’s eye! This wedding has style for miles! From her vintagesque tea length gown and fascinator with fantastic pops of red combined with the modern slate bridesmaids, handmade button bouts and new, yet rustic Pizzaiolo backdrop this wedding, makes contemporary crafty my new favorite wedding trend! And tell me you don’t L-O-V-E that photobooth! Fringed crepe paper and some of the funnest (yes- that’s officially a word today) props and guests are leading me down the yellow brick road of good times.
No tornados here, just a whirlwind of great design and super style. And even though you might have to go home, you can always return to this wonderful wedding of Oz by visiting the fantastic gallery of uber cool shots (love the reverse first look) by Gabriel Harber Photography. Thanks Gabriel Harber. Congratulations Erica and Alex!
