A few months ago, I was asked to be a part of my college’s alumni art exhibition for the new academic year! It had to showcase my professional work for the theme of the new school year so I decided to put a little twist on it.  Wedding photography has changed so much in the last several years (less traditional more timeless) that there’s no reason why you can’t showcase your photos in your home!  I decided to purchase thrifty frames and update them!  Here’s how… (more…)

Your natural environment can provide you with so many resources for fall wedding decor.  Leaves and pumpkins seem to be the most commonly used, which is why I loved the use of pinecones here!  You can find pinecones just about anywhere!  The dark brown tones really compliment the hot new color for weddings, purple!  Pinecone Place Card & Pinecone Hurricane Vase

I wanted to share a few of my favorite lighting crafts for wedding decor in the fall.  If you know anything about photography, you know that it’s about the use of light.  It’s important to have a balance of light in your ceremony and reception venues so that the photographer can technically capture your moments but also photograph the feeling.  Nothing sets the mood like candlelight! These 2 ideas are super inexpensive and provide that unique fall touch.  Autumn Illuminated & Cornhusk Votives.

Gifts are so much more special when there’s craft and memories put into them!  With so many options out there for your bridesmaids gifts, I thought these two ideas were perfect!  The blooming ring can be worn during the wedding day and become a fun accessory afterwards.  The memory flip books are precious! They come in different sizes and are created from 10-30 second clips of video.  Check out Flip Clips for more info.
