The couple went through great lengths to hand-make all the details for their day, starting with the bride and bridesmaids bouquets, which were absolutely exquisite! The bride’s bouquet alone took over 60 hours to make, which in our book is just one example of her dedication to making their day perfect!  The paper peony bouquets were made from heavyweight recycled paper as seen in the example here: Paper Peonies . They also made hanging lanterns using string and coffee filters, which created such a romantic and rustic environment for their reception. And kudos to you both for making everything look perfect!
