Tina & Scott’s Travel Themed Crafty Wedding

Tina & Scott’s travel and craft themed wedding took place at The Greenbranch, Texas. It was¬†predominately¬†a DIY wedding influenced by the couple’s travels. “It was ¬†mostly a do-it-your self peacock inspired wedding with a splash of anything vintage was a blast,” the¬†couple¬†told me. “Our invitations were an image of a vintage suitcase with travel stickers of places we have visited. This connected with our first date; a ‚Äúgeocaching date‚ÄĚ. We not only wanted to share our journey as a couple with our guests but also encourage them¬†to have an adventure of their own. The wedding favors for the evening were uniquely trackable geocaching coins designed by us.”

“Our bouquets and centerpieces were entirely do-it-yourself too,” continued Tina. “We wanted to create the bouquets and centerpieces ahead of time meant no fresh flowers, instead the my bridesmaid’s and I gathered for a craft day to create fabric flower bouquets. We used multiple mediums ranging from an old pair of the Scott’s jeans, small wooden flowers and to French silk ribbon. The bouquets took all day to make five, with one backup, and it was a lot of fun!”

“The reception centerpieces focused on peacock-based arrangements with an eclectic assortment of vintage pieces. One that the we especially liked were several copies of ‚ÄúWhen you Marry‚ÄĚ, a home economics book from the 1950′s and 1960′s with many ‚Äúantiquated‚ÄĚ attitudes about marriage.”

Tina’s wedding dress was from Whirling Turban (who I’ve featured on Rock n Roll Bride before). Tina was pretty much able to design her dream dress from scratch and so chose a custom peacock pattern on the front of the dress and a dramatic green colour.

    This was a very special day. All the personal touches and details that went into the wedding are symbolic of the couple and how much they care for one another. It was an honor just to be there.

  2. I loved all the color at this wedding- especially the turquoise dress! Plus they really made it fun for all their guests!

  3. What a beautiful wedding. Tina is obviously very artistic. (AND SO NICE!!!) Amazing how she whipped out those bouquets- that is not as easy as she makes it look!

    To me this wedding confirms the following sage advice- skimp wherever you will, BUT NOT ON THE PHOTOGRAPHER!

    These are GORGEOUS photos that do justice to and forever preserve a beautiful event!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous – I want that dress! Tina looks amazing and all the details are blindingly fab. Molly’s comment takes it all back to why we have weddings… it looks and sounds perfect.

  5. Hi all! Thanks for the awesome compliments! I just thought I’d add a couple other places for people looking to do geocaching coins and invites. We got the envelopes from envelopemall.com. They have a great selection and do short runs(min. 100) for printing…metallic ink! The coins themselves we got made at oakcoins.com. You can look at the actual coin here:

    Thanks again!
