Paper Flower and Windmill Ceremony Arch

Paper Flowers and Pinwheels

"We wanted something really whimsical and dramatic," says bride Lauren Virden, who worked with event designer Jesi Haack on the ceremony display. "I had a photo of paper flowers in my wedding-planning file, and we decided to make an arch entirely out of paper." They fashioned hundreds of pinwheels from patterned paper from a local craft store; Jesi added colorful kites and giant paper flowers in the center of the display. "As we drove up the hill to the ceremony venue on the day of the wedding, I spotted a giant mass of color in the distance," says Lauren. "I gasped when I realized it was the arch—it was more dramatic and beautiful than I could've imagined." Event design by Jesi Haack Design
