Connecticut Wedding Snippets

BW Paper Backdrop

For a wedding earlier this summer, I was asked by a dear friend to add some paper decor to her younger brother’s wedding in Connecticut.  The bride had loved my mixed paper backdrop and wanted something similar.  Ask and you shall receive!  I added the above paper pinwheels and pennants to a wall inside the venue that was used for the photo booth backdrop.  I also made some paper flowers and added those to the iron arbor which they were married under.  While I freestyled some of these flowers, I also included enlarged versions of my paper roses and used TheHouseThatLarsBuilt tutorial for the poppy-esque flowers (those with the fanned petals).
