Bride: Erin O’Brien, 33 – Middle School Math Teacher
Groom: Travis Trembly, 28 – Security
Wedding Date: July 14, 2012
Now that I have given you some background on this charismatic couple, their origami wedding theme will make a lot of sense. Sometimes themed weddings, especially those that require a lot of quirky DIY like this one, can be difficult to pull off. But I think this is an excellent example of how good things can be when you take something whimsical and make it classy. Dressing up the ordinary makes it instantly couture. I am blown away by the bouquets and table decor in particular. This wedding does what many try and fail to do. It is warm, colorful, whimsical, and fun without a touch of childish. The bright colors next to crisp white is a beautiful aesthetic!
This entire wedding was a major DIY event. All of the flowers and decorations were hand-made origami pieces. The shotgun shell in the bride’s bouquet was a memento from their first date and it contained love letters from Travis. The jam favors were homemade and so was the photo booth. Anything not homemade was provided by vendors they knew to support friends and keep their money local. “It couldn’t have been done without the support and love of our friends and family. We are so blessed!” says Erin.
