Wedding Inspiration: Birdies and Branches

Since we recently received our wedding album, I've been looking at it quite a bit. Perhaps a bit too much, but I just love it! Christa at Print Weddings did an amazing job on our photos, and I love how Kitty put it all together for our book. They captured our day perfectly, and I have so much fun looking back on it!
As you can see, we have a little birdie on a branch theme going, which my husband Kevin designed. We had it on the save the dates and the wedding invitations, and Kitty added it to our book. It looks just lovely, and I couldn't be happier!

Kevin and I handmade each of the centerpieces using birch branches, hearts cut out from an old book, and little fake birdies:
I also wanted to carry the birdie theme over to the wedding cake, so I made this bride and groom wedding cake topper:

All and all it was a perfect day, and looking back on it inspired me to sketch up a few birdie and branch necklace designs:

Which are your favorites?


  1. I like the 4th one down on the first page of sketches, and also the one at the bottom. I love these! :)

  2. Thanks Megan, glad you like them! I am going to get started carving some soon! :)

  3. Christy,
    Mom and I like the first picture (bottom right where the bird is sitting right in the middle of the branch).

    Mom also likes the last picture with the two "love birds", as she calls them, on a branch!

    Great ideas, Christy....can't wait to see them!

  4. Thanks Dad! I'm excited to get started on them, hopefully they turn out like I have envisioned! :)

  5. I love birds on branches! Can't wait to see the final product. Perhaps another Lucius piece for my collection?

  6. Thanks Michelle!! I will let you know when they are finished! :)

  7. Beautiful post! I am a budding designer and a wedding planner and I really like going through such posts. My first project is my sister’s wedding and I am very excited about it. We have booked one of the most beautiful Seattle Wedding venues.
