Juntura Wedding

Last weekend I celebrated the wedding of some dear friends in picturesque Poland Springs, Maine. The weather cooperated and with a couple of raindrops for good luck we enjoyed sunny skys for the big day. My boyfriend and I had quite the time wrapping the presents and I thought I would share our final presentation with you! I wanted to go with a sophisticated black & white palette with accents of gold. So while we were out shopping for the gifts we stopped at a craft store and wandered the aisles looking for inspiration, what did we find? mini cupcake wrappers caught my eye along with a pack of googly eyes. I immediately thought of the SNL sketch with Christopher Walken as the Googly Eyed Gardener. enjoy the video here. So with double sided tape and a bottle of Elmer’s glue Kris and I began our tasks, we took turns taping cupcake wrappers to the dust buster box and glueing googly eyes to the cocktail shaker. I wrapped a bouquet of kitchen utensils with white tissue and then finished it with a gold tissue around the “stems” and tied everything with a criss crossed black ribbon.

I also had the pleasure of assisting the Groom with his Groomsmen gifts. Jamie is an avid brewer so he wanted to gift custom beer glasses with a homemade brew. He came to me with the name and concept and I designed the labels for the bottles. I wanted to create as close a representation of the couple as I could, and then added the little detail of Rachael holding the key to the ball & chain. Such a wonderful couple with such a brilliant sense of humor!
