We are in the midst of wedding season and I just love catching up on friends', family, and other bloggers experiences and photos! One of my favorites comes from my friend Courtney. She's amazingly talented, you guys, and as soon as I saw what she did for her sister's wedding, I nearly passed out. Not only does she run the most incredible children's boutique...
...and crafting studio in Pasadena, CA called Little Junebugs...
...she handcrafts these:
Yep, she's a paper flower artist.
Talk about sustainable! You're going to flip when you see what she did for me and you're going to be doing back handsprings when you see what she crafted for her sis' wedding!!!
Courtney used her sister's wedding color palette of turquoise and orange and created paper flowers for all of the bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. It's one thing to take real flowers and arrange them, but it's another whole barrel of monkeys to DIY those flowers, assemble them, and ship them across the country!
Oh, and the invitations...she did those too!
I can't wait to see the photos from the wedding! I'll make sure to post a few updates showing everything in action!
Now, check out what she handcrafted for me. My birthday is October 15th, so my coinciding birthday flower is the Cobra Lily.
Courtney made me my own version...
I couldn't even get over how incredible these turned out.
I have these on my coffee table all the time now and they always make me smile. I'm not an awesome botanist and I can't keep orchids alive for my life, but I can definitely take care of these guys.
I'm just waiting for Courtney to start offering classes at her studio...
Have any of you guys worked with paper before, crafting flowers or other cool items? I'd love to see any shots of your creations because I'm simply blown away by this. Talk about a whole new world of craftiness that I haven't even dipped my toes into yet!

All the shots were taken by photog extraordinaire, Tanya Alexis. I was obsessed with the "candid" shot she got of me when I went to pick up my flowers. Head over HERE - www.originalkidsbyTA.com - to see more of her portrait work!
