Today we’re throwing it back to the Seahorses, who celebrated their nuptials in a romantic, scenic shoreline wedding just outside of Boston. We are smitten with the personal touches, the intimate size… read more

After making the frame, we needed a pretty backdrop. I wanted something that would be simple with some sparkle. I bought a large bolt of white chiffon from a swap meet in San Diego. Yes, a swap meet.

You heard it right. You can make your own ring pillow for your big day. I’m so excited about this project because I really feel it’s something that takes minimal effort but produces grand results. I kept mine pretty simple, and it still turned out neat! You could add so much to it, and you can also use a different fabric. I know felt might not be everyone’s cup o’ tea. I like it, but there’s nothing wrong with using a different fabric.
