Whimsical Handmade Paper-Flower Centerpieces

It was important for the wedding to reflect Ezra and Lisa’s creativity and playful personalities, so making much of the decor themselves seemed only natural. “Because I’m an illustrator and Ezra writes and plays music and is a comic-graphic-novel enthusiast, we wanted our wedding to share our passions for the arts,” Lisa says. With the Eric Carle Museum dedicated to picture book art, it seemed logical for the couple to use books, paper crafts and art to decorate. Inspired by the museum’s vibrant murals, they also used a palette rich in bright hues. For the reception, the pair topped their tables with piles of old books, handcrafted paper flowers—all made by Lisa and her close friends—book-themed paper-cut table names, the handiwork of Lisa’s close friends, Nicole Salm.
