BAM Co Create

Inspiration for your Edgy & Colorful DIY Wedding

Ever dream of decorating with napkins? Well maybe you should start! This shoot speaks to our creative-loving hearts so much, AND it features tons of local vendors to Baltimore!

We can't lie, when we first saw the posts going up about this awesome shoot in our own town, we were immediately hoping we'd have a chance to share it!! So when it landed in our inbox, we were PUMPED! And you'll see why... this shoot is SO creative in all the ways we love! Pops of beautiful color, an edgy and handcrafted "just married" jacket, a fresh-looking cocktail in beautiful copper cups, and of course... a napkin-ceremony-arch!!

Yup, you heard us right. Have you ever imagined napkins looking this elegant?! We were blown away and absolutely love the idea of using something ordinary to create something extraordinary for your DIY-day. 


From Ashton Kelley Photography // "Rich tones come together to inspire this warm bridal inspiration. From the DIY napkin based altar to the "Just Married" jacket from Copperstone Co., the elements come together to inspire the Fall bride. Luxurious florals are featured with an array of textures as the focal point of the design, complimented with tons of copper flare."
