The thought of Mondays can be a bit depressing but we have a fun and colorful wedding with a super cute story to brighten your morning. Erin and Travis had an origami theme throughout their wedding — This was inspired by a Japanese tradition where if you fold 1000 paper cranes your wish will come true. Travis spent six months folding these cranes, his wish being that Erin would accept his marriage proposal. Of course, she said yes and they folded hundreds more together to incorporate in to their wedding. It truly was a labor of love!
From their Photographer: This was one of my favorite weddings ever. I grew up with Travis and had the great fortune of shooting their wedding. Erin painstakenly detailed her wedding so beautifully. The theme was origami and bright colors. To give you a little backstory as to why…Travis took inspiration from a Japanese tradition. He spent the better part of 6 months folding 1000 paper cranes. Once you fold the thousand you are granted a wish; his being for Erin to marry him. She of course said yes and they both folded and additional 300 more for the decor of their wedding. Erin also folded paper and added buttons to create her bouquets. The ceremony and reception was held in Lyons, Colorado at Spruce Mountain Lodge, with the “after party” at Oskar Blues in Lyons. So delicious! I shot both photography and one of the best wedding films of 2012.
We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! We kick off this week with this laid-back wedding held at the groom’s parents home in Florida. They had little personal pies and BBQ catering, various games to entertain guests, and burlap and natural tone decor to complete the casual vibe and create a comfortable and pretty atmosphere.

From their Photographer: Allison and Trevor are lovers of all things vintage and are both creative. The wedding was held in Trevor’s family’s back yard in Ocala, Florida, and it was nearly all DIY. There were darling details all over the place. They did a great job incorporating games like corn hole and checkers to keep guests entertained. The kid’s area even had bird houses to decorate and games to play. The centerpieces were made from a compilation of vintage books, rustic church shaped bird house, a few bird sculptures, and baby’s breath, with a scattered vintage camera here and there. The colors were very subtle earth tones, which kept it from getting too cluttered. I loved that Allison and Trevor chose to do little personal pies for their guests. For the “cake cutting” they used a knife from their parents’ wedding, and cut into their own miniature pie. The atmosphere was very casual, with a catered BBQ dinner. Even Trevor’s family pup joined in on the fun!
This wedding truly sums up why we started Love Toast. We wanted to not only showcase beautiful weddings and share industry insight, but also inspire brides to find ways to make their wedding unique to the couple and more personal. Margot and Tristan have the cutest story of how they met (watch the YouTube video) and they wanted their wedding to reflect their creative style. Basically everything that you see in this wedding was handmade and has meaning behind it…Well, except for the zombies — they just happened to be walking by.
