The saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” By the time Katie Rotio began planning for her wedding, she was enjoying success as a custom wedding stationery designer for her business Katherine Elizabeth Events.
Katie’s wedding was set to take place in Massachusetts in November – not an ideal situation for a bride-to-be who desires local fresh flowers to decorate for her special day. Instead of giving up on her floral fantasies, Katie took matters into her own hands, literally, and taught herself the art of making paper flowers. She spent night after night making roses and calla lilies to create her entire wedding décor – one bridal bouquet, eight bridesmaids bouquets, 21 boutonnieres, and over 171 single flowers for the centerpieces! Needless to say, her guests were stunned by the whole presentation.
