This wedding is all about rain boots, fabric bouquets, and co-written vows pledging eternal love for cats

Holly and Jen rock at crafting: they handmade both of their fabric bouquets and all of the desserts served at their wedding, including the three-tired wedding cake! Yellow and gray clearly ruled the day, as evidenced by the rain boots worn by the brides, the ribbons used for their handfasting, and the crows and bird cages on the dessert cookies. The pair bridged sentiment and humor with their co-written vows, including promises to accept each cat brought into their lives and staying together long enough to see what one another's tattoos look like in old age.

  1. Such a beautiful wedding to be a part of, and so much fun! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think you might have our tiny province mixed up Stephanie, as we're located in Canada – not Europe!

    PSST: Thanks Stephanie ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is a GORGEOUS wedding. I love the colors, and the brides look so happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    (Also, this is the first time I've looked at the blog on my laptop since you switched to a wider format. The photos look great!)

  3. I love love love the photograpy!! Gorgeous brides!!

    I usually loathe the color yellow, but for some reason I fell in love with the yellow-grey theme you guys had going on! Fantastic!

  4. Looks like an awesome wedding, but that last pic really gave me goosebumps. Romantic and books, books, books!!!!

  5. I had to leave a comment just to let you know that our bouquets were a fabric mix but no felt involved! (Probably would have been much easier if it had been though!) ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for featuring us, we worked very hard!

    • Your bouquets are lovely (well, the entire event looks amazing, but I'm a bit flower-focused right now). Do you have a link or a resource that shows how to make those fabric flowers?

      • We referenced a whole bunch of sites and pieced together enough information and then improvised to make it all come together. I'll have a look through my Pinterest and see if I still have anything kicking around!

        • Or even what fabrics you used would be awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
          I hope you ladies had some Screech, ya crazy Newfs. Absolutely beautiful everything.
          Love from Ontario&Cape Breton
