Beautiful Paper Wedding Dress Photos
I’m so excited to be sharing my paper wedding dress side project. Why a paper dress? For years I had been fascinated by paper dresses. Not sure why, but the artistry of combining fashion and paper was intriguing to me. I occasionally told random friends about my interest in working on a project with a paper wedding dress. I never found anyone who knew much about them.
Then, one evening earlier this year, I was lazily scrolling through my Instagram feed when I happened to see a post by a couple of artisans who specialize in paper displays and backdrops, including some work for weddings. When I searched for their info, I discovered they were located in Minneapolis! In one of my “What have I got to lose?” moments, I sent them an email asking if they would be interested in creating a paper wedding dress for a styled wedding photoshoot. They said YES!!! I think my jaw actually might have hit the floor when I received that email – I was SO excited!
From there, I asked my friend Maddie of Ask for the Moon Events about her interest in the project. She loved the idea too, and was happy to be on board! My dream was about to become a reality! We got together for coffee with the amazing Suzanne and Lisette of Black Crane Studio. We talked over some ideas, and Suzanne put it best when describing the dress they would create: “Go big or go home!” So while our Black Crane friends worked their magic, Maddie took the reigns and coordinated a stellar team of vendors for the photoshoot.

The day arrived, and everyone was so excited. It was awesome to see Black Crane’s stunning dress up close and in person. The entire dress was created of paper. The majority of the dress was composed of cupcake wrappers. The underskirt was folded tissue paper, the flowers were cut construction paper, and the “beads” were created out of papier-mâché. Everyone brought their A-game to the event, and we are all thrilled with the results.
Take a look at the amazing images below as well as the spectacular team of vendors. And watch for our photoshoot to be featured on Minnesota Bride’s website later this year! Thanks again to my amazing “friendors” – I am so happy to have worked with you as your Minneapolis wedding photographer!
