inspiration to reality: ceremony programs

The ceremony programs for our wedding were inspired by this amazing paper artist at Paper and Thread.  We were unsure what the weather would be like at our October wedding in Southern California, typically we experience heat waves around that time, so in preparation for that occurrence we felt a fan style program would be the perfect solution.

As with all of the diy paper products for the wedding, the ceremony programs were a labor of love.  The mr. spent hours designing and perfecting the content of the pages.  My mother helped with all of the hand punches (circle in the middle of the cover and decorative corners).  And I'm pretty sure there were several other helpers for the assembly however they were put together so close to the wedding date and I don't remember much from that time.



Supplies:

Kraft paper - Michaels
"R" custom monogram -  The Wedding Chicks
Fonts - dafont.com
Content design by mr. roundy - Free trial of Adobe Photo Shop used on a Mac Book Pro
Circle paper punch - Marvy Clever Lever Craft Punch (Michaels)
Corner paper punch - Fiskars 3-in-1 Heritage Corner Punch (Michaels) 
Eyelets - Recollection Brass Eyelets (Michaels)

Wow thank you for the Friday distraction- this is amazing!! I am getting married at Leo Carrillo in July and am going for an "anthropologie" type feel so I am getting some great ideas from your site! Any chance you have an etsy site where you're selling some of the things you made (like the wine barrel table)?? If so, can you please email me at jacquie.l.wilson@gmail.com... thanks!!

Thank you Judyminardi and Jacquie for the kind comments! No etsy site yet but I'm definitely thinking about it :). I have a full time job so it would be quite an undertaking but I just may be up for the challenge.

Do you remember what font you used for the section headings in the program ("The Ceremony", "The Wedding Party")? I have been scouring dafonts and other sites for the perfect calligraphy font and can't find it!

I sure do! The font is called "Jane Austen".
