We all know many brides spend loads of time planning their wedding. Some can say such planning began long before they got engaged. That’s how it was for Valerie and Greg’s magical soiree captured by Alicia Lacey Photography featured here today.
As a teenage girl, Valerie read a story about a young Japanese girl who dreamed of creating 1,000 paper cranes before she died. In Japan, cranes are holy creatures that are believed to live for 1,000 years. So one must craft 1,000 paper cranes, one for each year, to be granted eternal good luck. Valerie loved the idea behind this and so she went to work. Each crane she made was a labor of love, one that was years in the making.
Valerie knew she wanted to incorporate these into her wedding day and thought no better place than the altar that she and Greg would be married under. Greg crafted the bamboo frame which held the one thousand colorful paper cranes strung one by one. It was the perfect complement to their blush, gold, and cream color palette, and added a pop throughout the ceremony and reception!
Thanks for stopping by!
