Your surroundings are important to think about when choosing a venue or location for your photos. A “backdrop” doesn’t necessarily have to be a designed piece of fabric or artwork – it can be something unique and fun! Plus, it’s the place you’re going to say “I do” and will be in your photos forever so shouldn’t it be awesome?? There are so many DIY backdrops to create OR maybe there’s already the perfect spot right under your nose! Check out these fun ideas for creating the perfect photo!

Peonies are one of the most popular spring flowers, especially for weddings. I haven’t met a bride who doesn’t love this romantic bloom. They make the perfect focal point for any arrangement whether it be used in a bouquet or a centerpiece.
I especially love peonies clustered together in monochromatic colors. You can use pink peonies to make a modern statement or use white peonies to set the tone for an elegant affair.
When I think of spring, one of the first flowers that comes mind are lily of the valley. They are beautiful wildflowers that bloom in the spring. They have a delicate bell shape and are extremely fragrant.
Lily of the valley makes a perfect addition to any spring bridal bouquet. They are just as stunning all on their own. Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly even had lily of the valley bouquets!
You can create a stunning winter wedding that is both elegant and comfortable. Using great lighting, the proper color palette and things that sparkle, your winter wedding can become a wonderland of chic details and subtle beauty!
Glamelia bouquets were once popular in the 40′s and 50′s are beginning to make a comeback after Katherine Heigl showed off her beautiful bouquet at her wedding. A glamelia is a handcrafted bouquet made of individual petals sewn together with a wire to create a large, beautiful bouquet.
Spider mums (chrysanthemums) are the perfect flower for a fall or winter bouquet or centerpiece. They are available in white, light green, pale purple and bright yellow and are the perfect flower to make your arrangement chic, modern or unique. Our team loves these special flowers and can help you decide exactly how to incorporate them into your day!

The design and decor of your wedding starts with a few fundamental things: how you envision your day looking, the overall style and a color scheme. Once those components have been established then it’s time to plan how you can incorporate them all into the details. Linen, floral, stationery, lighting, place settings etc. are just a few of the details that get a lot of attention. But what about up above? Ceilings are most frequently a space that is not paid much attention to because it isn’t in our direct line of sight. Incorporating the ceiling into your plans can really complete the entire space from top to bottom. Ceiling decor used in a space with high ceilings can assist in making the space less overwhelming and more intimate. An outdoor wedding is also a perfect place to think about using ‘ceiling’ decor at to create an more ambient space. Check out below some idea starters for ways to incorporate ceiling decor into your wedding day:
How fun are these?! Balloons don’t just have to be helium filled at a birthday party – there are so many unique ways to incorporate them into your wedding day! Whether it’s paper mache, filled with hot air, or scattered around the room, these balloons are sure to make a statement!
Pearls are elegant, classy, and chic. Such a simple detail to add to your decor but it can make a big statement. Whether it’s added to your shower decor, your wedding cake, or used to spruce up your home for the holidays, they’re always gorgeous.
