Whimsical paper flowers

How ridiculously gorgeous is this ceremony arch? One of my fave wedding planners, Jesi Haack in Newport Beach, CA, hand-made hundreds of paper flowers, pinwheels, and kites to form this spectacular arch for one couple's wedding at Saddlerock Ranch. A floral-print fabric was used as a runner and additional whimsical pinwheels were used to line the ceremony aisle. This paper flowers were such a hit that Jesi has kindly put together a paper flower-making tutorial on her blog. Also, you can see more photos from this wedding here. What do you think? Is this something you'd consider creating for your ceremony? —Heather Lee, Editor, Brides Southern California
