Hey, Divas! Where is the time going? Can any of us believe that it is already mid-May? Us at Wedding Paper Divas are still surprised by how fast time is flying by. There is something refreshing about an outdoor wedding and these “I, Do’s” are a nice reminder that warmer weather is on the way (and coming fast.) We are absolutely swooning over this romantically rustic wedding with a light and creamy color palette, perfect for a spring or summer ceremony.
From the vintage mismatched guest seating to the rustic photo booth for snapping all the fun, each and every detail of this outdoor wedding perfectly complements the sweet love this couple shares. There’s nothing more important in life than family and Chelsea and Scott’s big day was not only about just the two of them, but their adorable little ones too. As they blended their family under the Californian sun, it’s beautiful to see the joy and smiles they share. Get your notepads out and ready to take some notes for your big day.
Hey, Divas! Today, we are so smitten to share one of our favorite wedding color schemes with you. Think bright, floral and blue. You know that saying that goes something like, April showers bring May flowers…
Well, today’s nuptials are full of gorgeous florals. Did we mention- boho floral crowns, bright floral robes for getting ready and chic wedding bouquets that will quite honestly take your breath away. This beautiful couple said their “I,Dos” at St. Andrew the Apostle Church in New Sudbury, Ontario where Emily attended church as a child and into adulthood. What a perfect place to exchange sweet vows. Emily and Ewan met on their first day of school at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON, while moving into residence – where they’d be next-door neighbors. As Ewan says, Emily will forever be his ‘girl next-door’ (sigh, so cute). This big day is filled with an abundance of rustic romance. Make sure to take some notes if you’re doing a little wedding planning of your own.
P.S. Check out these adorable maple syrup wedding favors, too cute!
Favorite characteristic about bride (From the Groom)
Besides the fact that “she’s a total babe”, Ewan absolutely loves Emily’s sense of humour and the fact that she can make him laugh at any given time. Though she denies it, he knows she’s way out of his league.
Favorite characteristic of Groom (From the Bride)
When we were ‘just friends’ in first year residence at Queen’s University, we were the night owls. We would stay up all night talking, and he would always laugh at my jokes – as silly as they were. He was one of the big pranksters on our floor, but he would never let anything happen to me. He was always my protector. When we graduated from undergrad and he was to move back to Ottawa, and I to Sudbury, I knew that I didn’t want to lose him. I wanted to be more than ‘just friends.’ I invited myself to visit him at his cottage that summer, and we’ve been together ever since.

A green wedding is worth its weight in gold. There’s a reason why nature surrounds us with this beautiful, rich and organic color. Gold details—planting pots for succulents and gold, leaf-shaped frosting—elevate a green theme to a whole new level. If you are yearning for a themed union this year, try holding a forest wedding. The backdrop creates an iconic venue.
Create a green and gold wedding theme for an elegant day full of foliage.
Keep invitations simple with colors and fonts that match your wedding theme. For a green and gold look, we like this simple design that complements the natural style.
Here are some ideas on how to decorate to create this look:
Add color to your venue and photography by placing robust plants around your ceremony and reception. Palm leaves are perfect table runners because they’re flat, and vases and candles easily sit on top.
Freshly painted or “distressed” wooden doors give an organic look to a natural theme. Find doors and furniture to add to your venue scene or to use as props for your photography. Make the doors/furniture fit your green and gold scene by attaching gold handles.
Add dimension to your tables with modern glass candleholders in various sizes. It’ll give height to your centerpiece without blocking the view across the table. We love how light flickers in glass candleholders—beautifully set against foliage arrangements.
Let all the bridesmaids go green, or only have the maid of honor dress in a forest green gown. It’s nice to make the maid of honor feel special with a color or an accent piece, like green or a gold broach, to make her stand out from the rest.
Who wouldn’t want a pot of gold? We love these green succulents as party favors because they’re affordable and they add so much style to the tables. Guests will have little gold pots that look beautiful on the tables.
Frost the cake with bold frosting decorations. Think outside the box and make your cake a work of art. Have your cake decorator create palm leaves for a unique cake.
Green dresses, painted doors and succulent arrangements create a lush look. If you accent a green wedding with gold, you’ll have yourself a reception that’s naturally elegant.
