{Real Weddings} Brittany & Casey’s Movie Theater Merriment

Brittany and Casey’s beautiful wedding is full of personal details and meaningful DIY touches. The bride even took the time to fold a thousand paper cranes for their ceremony backdrop (seriously, this girl is amazing).

Read on for all the lovely details from the bride herself…

We love seeing great movies together and loved the idea of getting married in a movie theater. It had a great feel with the art work and it was located in the Heights, where we first moved in together. We tried to play off the movie theme with the decorations and made this into a total DIY wedding! I bought and made my own flower jars for the tables. I made my bridal bouquet when I had found I couldn’t get the peonies I had ordered in time.

On etsy people sell bouquets made out of antique brooches. I decided to make one by going to forever 21 and buying bracelets and taking them apart, rings, pins,etc. I also found a cute fingerprint guestbooks on etsy. With the movie theme, I decided to go with the Up (movie) house with the fingers being the balloons. I bought a frame at Michael’s and I drew the house myself on paper with fine tip markers and got finger paint and picture holder stands from Michael’s.

The biggest project? I folded a thousand paper cranes for our ceremony backdrop. I had heard of the idea before and absolutely fell in love with it. I bought a huge stack of 12″ by 12″ paper from Michael’s and cut each page into four 6″ by 6″ squares and folded each into a crane, and then strung them together using beads, fishing string and a needle… It took several months! My awesome friends hung them on the alter before the wedding. The art inside this place was incredible and was a total compliment to our theme and creative personalities.

Thanks for sharing, Brittany!
