A Vibrant & Artistic Wedding + 1300 Paper Cranes!

A Vibrant & Artistic Wedding + 1300 Paper Cranes!

Oh. My. Goodness. Why, yes… that IS a CURTAIN of colorful origami paper cranes that served as the dazzling backdrop for the wedding of this lucky bride & groom!

And as beautiful as all of these floating creatures look on their own, they seem even more amazing when you learn about the special meaning behind them… all throughout the time they were dating, Jon sent paper cranes to Laura with secret messages hidden inside. Pretty sweet!!

Even if you don’t have the means to fold 1300 paper cranes like Laura did along with the help of family, friends, and a classroom of 5th graders (extra gold stars for them!) – this is still a fabulous idea for parties on a smaller scale too… for example a “Love Birds” engagement party or bridal shower, or a festive holiday soirée.

I’m also loving how the paper cranes look sitting on top of the wheatgrass below… almost like a contemporary flower field!

This is a common Japanese tradition – 1000 paper cranes for good luck – often given at weddings, anniversaries, and milestone birthdays. I love how contemporary they made it – bank this idea for my sisters wedding in the future!

Beatriz SAYS:

For my baby’s first birthday, which was themed after the Antoine de Saint Exupery’s Little Prince, I used tsurus for representing the passage where the Little Prince flies with a bunch of birds. What is difficult is to install them in the roof and make they look settled.
