EEEeeeeee……!!! Do you know how crazy excited I am to share today’s feature with you!?!?! As you scroll down I’m sure you’ll see why… mermaids, the beach, the color turquoise, and craft projects galore – all of my favorite things wrapped up into one beautiful wedding inspiration shoot! What’s the occasion you ask? Cricut is officially launching their “wedding craft category” and in celebration, they’ve partnered with me and other talented wedding + craft bloggers to bring you some absolutely fabulous and ultra creative wedding projects and ideas. But wait, there’s more… Cricut is also hosting an enormous wedding giveaway during the entire month of September (more on that below) and you’re going to swoon over what’s up for grabs. The best part about this feature is that you’ll find 8 DIY projects; one that I shared last week and 7 more that are on their way, which means the elements you see here, can actually be reproduced. Unlike some other wedding inspiration shoots – this one is 100% craftable!

Obsessing Over Fifty Flowers

Fifty Flowers provided all the beautiful wholesale flowers that you’re seeing here! I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about them before, but if not… you easily order your flowers online, choose your delivery date and from there a personal concierge takes care of the delivery process and even helps with care and decorating tips. If you’re going to DIY your own wedding or event florals – they are your #1 resource!

In Love With Celia Grace

What could be more beautiful than an exquisitely handmade wedding dress? A breathtakingly beautiful wedding gown that also gives back and helps women around the world… that’s what Celia Grace believes and we love them for it. They loaned us their stunning “Rachel” dress… which is the cherry on top of this entire shoot!

Cricut Explore Air

You all know how much I love my Cricut Explore Air, but actually taking on this shoot and being able to use it in the way that I did, to take the personalization to the next level, has given me a new respect for my little blue and white machine. It’s your story, make it personal… with Cricut.
