My laser cutter arrived about 6 months before our wedding. Perfect timing. I had a new machine that I needed to adjust to (settings across laser cutting machines differ and I had never worked with this brand or model before) and I also needed invitations, decorations and more for the upcoming nuptials. So I set out to laser cut everything in sight.
The inspiration for the wedding stationary and decorations came from a sunny afternoon session of sun printing. I took jasmine and honeysuckle vines from my backyard to expose on the indigo-colored SunPrint paper, which made a pattern. I used a scan of the sun print for our Save the Dates. I then traced the pattern in illustrator to create vector lines of the pattern to used in the laser cut invitation.
We chose Feeling Good by Nina Simone as the song for our first dance, and it couldn't have captured our feelings more perfectly. For table decoration I laser cut signs with different bits of the lyrics for every table.
I also cut signage for our typewriter guestbook (it was a hit!) and our seed bomb wedding favors (see below for more on the wedding favors).

I made seed bombs for wedding favors out of air-dry clay, compost and Nigella seeds. I then laser engraved a rubber stamp to imprint a message onto tons of muslin drawstring bags.
