Today I have an exciting and incredibly unique vendor feature to share. Brittani Rose Paper designs the most beautiful paper wedding designs. Typically re-created from a wedding photo, her pieces feature the tiniest of intricate detailing that would make anybody’s jaw drop.
To share a little insight into her designs and process, Brittani was kind enough to answer my curious interview questions.
How did you get started creating with paper?
Paper has always been my favorite medium to work with. Starting at a very young age, I loved to create and cut out my own paper dolls to play with along with dream outfits to dress them in.
In fifth grade, a local newspaper sponsored a holiday art contest, and I won first place with a scene cut from paper. As a teenager, it was all about paper collage and creating unique book covers, art, and portraits from my mom’s beautiful paper collection and magazines.
Where do you find inspiration when working on a new piece?
Each portrait I work on takes many days, sometimes weeks to complete so it is very important that I surround myself with beautiful things on a daily basis. Working with the joy, love, and enthusiasm of couples can’t be matched and in itself unbelievably inspiring. Having the privilege to be a part of such a significant day in their lives is priceless.
Weddings have always been so romantic and magical to me — the perfect dress, beautiful location, and flowers blending together beautifully and the emotion behind what this special day symbolizes. Having the opportunity to recreate such beautiful and delicately intricate dresses along with recreating the most special day for a couple is exciting.
I love that I get to be a part of something so dear to them by creating a piece to honor that special day for years to come.
What are the most popular wedding-related creations?
Many of my clients request to have a custom portrait created as a gift for their spouse on their one-year anniversary. Since paper is the traditional material to gift on first anniversaries, these custom portraits are truly a unique and personal keepsake.
I also offer wedding guest books and table numbers — each beautifully detailed and custom tailored to add an element that truly reflects the couple on their wedding day. I have also done portraits for clients as a gift for the bride recreating the proposal scene.
What does a bride need to send you before you begin working?
I really try to connect with my clients and collect as much detail as possible, which is extremely crucial during the design process. I want each piece to truly capture the personality of the couple. Not only do I want to get all the intricate beadwork and lace on the dress correct, but also make sure every freckle is in its given spot, height differences considered, hair properly placed and flowers accurately portrayed.
The beginning stage of creating their portrait is the most crucial part. This is where I gather all the details through a detailed questionnaire that is provided to them during checkout and collect photos and descriptions of what my clients wish to capture. A couple spends so much time and thought planning every little element of their wedding, and I want to capture every meaningful detail I can.
What are the most creative wedding creations you’ve ever made?
It truly is hard to select just one piece, as each one is truly memorable for me. I would have to say that the most significant piece I have ever done would be a wedding dress I recreated on its own. Even though I am happily married, the romantic girly-girl in me still loves to browse through wedding catalogs and soak in the beautiful dresses.
Recently, a specific dress grabbed me, and I knew I had to recreate it out of paper. The dress had delicate layers draping down with dainty fabric flowers and beadwork perfectly scattered across the dress. In that moment my love for all things wedding grew to a new level!
