Chelsea + Matt

July 2010

McMinnville, OR

From the Photographer: “Matt & Chelsea’s wedding was stunning…from the vintage limo they rented to their location’s breathtaking view, the fresh earth toned decor to oh, Chelsea’s radiance! She seriously rocked the stunning bride gig! It was all a sight to be scene!  Their wedding was held at Youngberg Hill Vineyards & Inn in McMinnville, OR. The view makes you realize just how much we have to be thankful for here in the Northwest. They rent out rooms which I would highly recommend for a peaceful oasis not too far from home.” –Ashley Sturm

Wedding Cake Topper

Posted by bridalbuds on Jun 23, 2010

Oh wedding cake topper. So many choices to choose from. There are whimsical couple figurines, the traditional bride and groom kissing figurines, word toppings (I do, Mr. & Mrs., etc.), monogram toppings, flowers… I mean, there is an endless list of things you could choose from. But for me, none of those were clicking. I did find a Mr. & Mrs. topper that I liked, but I didn’t love it. It just didn’t feel right.

DIY: Boho Chic Bouquets

Posted by bridalbuds on Dec 19, 2008

This project is extremely simple and tons of fun. The total cost of supplies from Michaels was about $30 and I made it over three evenings of primetime tv viewing. I am only a beginner crafter and am certainly not a perfectionist, so feel free to use this as more of a suggestion that instructions.

You will need styrafoam to put the bouquet together.

Glue the two pieces together to create the bouquet structure.

Now, for the flowers. Choose various colors, sizes, and textures of ribbon in order to create a fun bouquet. Don’t be afraid of patterned ribbon. It may look crazy by itself, but when you mix it in with complementary or contrasting colors, it will fit right in. Each flower is made up of a button, thread, 36-38 inches of ribbon, and a felt circle about 1.5 inches in diameter.
