I’m feeling a little whimsical today . . . so what better to embrace my mood than a wedding filled to the brim with creativity, whimsy and charm. When Mustard Seed Photography sent me this vintage inspired Texas soiree held in an Art Deco movie theatre, I knew I had to be part of the movie themed action right away! It’s absolutely adorable, filled with pretty whimsical DIY details, and I have no doubt, anyone looking for something a little different for their wedding theme will seriously fall in love.
Bride Brittany shares: We love seeing great movies together and therefore loved the idea of getting married in a movie theater. The art inside the theater was incredible which gave the venue a great feel and totally complimented our theme and creative personalities. The location of the theater in the Heights was also significant as it was where we first moved in together. Our goal was to play off the movie theme with the decorations and make it a totally DIY wedding! I bought and made my own flower jar centerpieces for the tables, and I also ended up making my bridal bouquet, when I discovered I couldn’t get the peonies I had ordered in time. I had noticed people selling bouquets made out of antique brooches on Etsy, so I decided to make one myself by going to Forever 21 and buying bracelets, rings, pins, etc, and taking them apart. For our guest book, I decided to go with the Up (movie) House with the fingerprints of guests creating the balloons. I bought a frame at Michael’s and I drew the house myself on paper with fine tip markers and got finger paint and picture holder stands from Michael’s. My biggest project was folding a thousand paper cranes for our ceremony backdrop. I had heard of the idea before and absolutely fell in love with it. I bought a huge stack of 12″ by 12″ paper from Michael’s and cut each page into four 6″ by 6″ squares and folded each into a crane, and then strung them together using beads, fishing string and a needle . . . It took several months! My awesome friends hung the cranes on the alter before the wedding.
