Handmade Wedding

I have known for a long time that I wanted my wedding to be small, intimate, and personal. So as a fiber artist, I also knew that I would have handmade things incorporated into the theme of the wedding. When my now-husband, then-boyfriend moved back to Arizona to be with me, I started knitting my wedding shawl. I knew a ring was in the future, but I also knew that we had talked about a short engagement, and wedding shawls can take a long time to make (which it did; it took 4 months to knit). I also wanted to be able to save my bouquet without having to deal with real flowers. I had seen fabric flowers popping up around the web, so I decided to make all the bouquets too; I made over 100 fabric flowers! Read this blog post for more details on everything I made for our wedding.

I love how every detail came together, so I’d like to have a page on my website to display the months of work that I did to help make our wedding personal and handmade. Feel free to use what you see here as inspiration! Everything pictured here was made by hand, mostly by me. Some doilies and the crocheted flowers and butterflies for the bouquets were made and donated by crafty friends. The white/purple pansy doily was made by my Grandma Coombe.
