More Paper Than Shoes March Featured Bride

MPTS' March Featured Bride

Meet Laura

Here at More Paper Than Shoes we have been brainstorming about some new blogging projects that would best showcase both our flowers AND our past bridal customers! We have had the extreme pleasure to work with some LOVELY, LOVELY brides! Wedding floral is one of the most important parts of a girl's big day and we are always delighted when a bride chooses us to handle this for her! We decided we wanted to revisit a different past bridal client each month, share her story, her flowers and feature her on our blog and fan page!!

Our very first featured bride of the month begins here in March and she is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Laura's flowers, venue, dress, and story were SO charming, we just had to share her with all of our fans!

Laura met her groom Ryan, almost five years ago at a July 4th party. Ryan was a friend of her brother's and a few other mutual friends. When they met at the party, they immediately hit it off! They decided to go out to dinner together a couple of nights later and Laura tells us that the rest is history! 

Their engagement was equally as charming, and very fitting of their personalities! Laura is NOT a surprise person, and she shared with Ryan that she did not want to be proposed to in public, with a food item, and most importantly she wanted it to be a private, intimate moment. Her groom paid close attention to Laura's wishes, and he proposed to her in the quiet, cozy setting of their apartment living room, on their couch! She describes it as being perfect for them, and wouldn't trade it for all the billboard/airplane announcements in the world! This had us charmed! Her description of the loving, intimate moment of proposal between her groom and herself was just too darling! 

Laura's flower selections with us were truly one of a kind and we were thrilled when they were completed and shipped out to her. We couldn't wait for them to arrive!

Laura is pictured below with one of her bridesmaids, Ashley, enjoying some OJ on the morning of her big day!

 The bridesmaid dresses were absolutely gorgeous with each dress being different in style and slightly varying in color! Their bouquets were the perfect compliment to these adorable dresses! We LOVE this photograph of the flowers lined up in front of the bridesmaid dresses. (See below)

 The girls and Laura had a little bit of fun before the ceremony started, to help keep them calm and collected! Can't you just tell that this a fun group of girls?

 Laura and Ryan were wed in Delray Beach, Florida at venue called Old School Square. The setting was exactly the non traditional, unique feel Laura had searched for when planning her wedding. The venue was actually once a school, now converted into a Historic Arts Center.


Below Laura is pictured being walked down the aisle by her father!

The ceremony was held outside under a covered walkway, and Laura was attended by her beautiful bridesmaids in varying shades of coral, holding our medium sized bridesmaid bouquets. Her bouquet is a custom designed piece, the larger of our bridal bouquets. (See pictures below)

 Cocktail hour and the reception were both in the vintage gymnasium on site. Pictured below is a photograph of the gymnasium and Laura's reception decor. It's obvious just how charming this beautiful venue truly was!

      When the bride and groom entered the gym officially as husband and wife, they were a hit!

                                       They shared their first dance and the reception began!

Laura's bridal package with us also included boutineers (as pictured above on her handsome groom, Ryan) and also loose flowers for the reception accents!

You can see her lovely wedding flowers we created everywhere at the reception, from the "find your seat" sign area to the bridesmaid's bouquets they carried with them!

Laura's wedding was truly beautiful, with tones of coral and pinks that gave her wedding a pop of color unique and perfectly fitting her personality. Our flowers were a lovely compliment to the already gorgeous bride, bridesmaids, and reception venue. We'd like to thank Laura Binder for allowing us to share her story, photographs from her lovely day, and most of all for choosing us as her wedding paper florist. We are so pleased to have had her as a past bridal client, and most importantly to have gotten to know this sweet, charmingly beautiful bride! Thank you again Laura and Ryan!

Each time we create a custom bridal package for a bride, there is an immense amount of love, sweat and tears that go into it. We know that our flowers are a huge part of each bride's big day, and we want to make sure that every single petal is truly magical just for them. No two flower creations we make are exactly alike! 

Here at More Paper Than Shoes, we have a vision. We dream of a lovely garden, filled with our flowers, unending shades of beauty, petals that reflect the love and dreams of our brides, the happiness and joy they want to convey on their big day. We do what Mother Nature simply can't, which is to provide this beauty, this everlasting touch of charm to each and every one of our bridal client's big days regardless of weather, season, or location!

We would love to bring this special touch to your big day! Contact us through our Etsy store:

We look forward to hearing from you!
