Erin and Dedrick’s Chesapeake Bay wedding was a blast! Their wedding was this past May at a private residence on Tilgham Island.

Erin and Dedrick had a few DIY touches including hand-painted driftwood signs, glass windows painted for table seating, paper lanterns, and lighted mason jars. Their Baltimore wedding photographer, Dennis from Dennis Drenner Photographs, did an amazing job capturing the day’s feel. See the photos and revel in this Chesapeake Bay wedding…

Hello, loves, and Happy Monday! We hope you had a great weekend. I (Emma here!) love Mondays in particular since we get to kick off a brand new week of handmade wedding inspiration and launch a new giveaway (details on that coming up next!) This weekend, I had the honor of signing copies of my new book in lovely Northville, Michigan at Next Chapter Bookstore and Bistro. I wanted to extend my gratitude to those who came out to visit me and purchase a copy. It was wonderful to see your smiling faces!
To kick off the brand new week, we’re talking about reusable wedding decorations. Instead of buying decorations to be thrown away after your wedding, consider reusable wedding decorations meant as keepsakes in your home. To show you what we mean – and provide plenty of inspiration! – we’ve compiled ten favorite new finds. Read on to see which decorations made the list + find how we recommend using ‘em. Enjoy!
Reusable Wedding Decorations

Who wouldn’t love a custom illustration made in their image? This find is one of my favorite illustrations to date.

Illustrated with love by Barbara Szepesi Szűcs Illustrations

Michelle of Michelle Gardella Photography captured this couple’s anticipation so vividly that one can almost feel like they’re in the room. Watch as the bride receives a special note from her groom, gives her father a teary “first look”, and smiles with bridesmaids as she prepares to walk down the aisle in 3…2…1…
