Botany Backdrop

As I’ve probably mentioned in previous entries, my roommate in Atlanta was a girl named Megan Kibby, who has since become quite the little photographer.

Her ideas/compositions are unique and off-the-wall and that’s what makes them so completely fabulous. The photos in this blog entry (in my opinion) show off one of her more brilliant concepts!

Daniel and Alicia (two of Megan’s clients) were wanting a natural/ eclectic/ Anthropologie style wedding, and she thought the fabric would make the perfect backdrop for the photo booth she planned on setting up outside of their reception.

Botany is made up of 5 colorways that all work well together… but these 5 colorways can also break up rather nicely into more specific color schemes.

In order to provide her with options that fit within their chosen colors, I put together the groupings shown below. (They chose the last one.)

Up until now, I’ve really only seen Botany used in quilts, clothing, and bags… It never even occurred to me that it could be used in its raw form… straight off the bolt.

The result works really well though… The colors play off each other beautifully and act as a nice compliment to the bridal party’s coloring!

Basically, the way this idea works is, when guests are walking into the reception, they stop at the photo booth to have their picture taken. They get to hold signs… and make silly faces… and act completely spontaneous. All so that the photos come out with that same classic “photo booth style”.

While waiting in line for the booth, each guest signs his or her name into the photo book and writes a message to the bride and groom. Each photo is then placed above that person’s corresponding message (see photo above). This idea combines the guest book with the photo booth album… which is really quite smart! Kudos to Megan!

On a side note, you can view Megan’s work on her website Out of the Box Photography and Design. I designed and programmed this site for her, which I’m super psyched about! This is actually the first site that I’ve put together using correct programming techniques!

There are a few additional features that I plan to add to her gallery sections and homepage, but if anyone wants to view her work, that’s where to find it!

On another side note, I’ve just returned from my own sister’s wedding this past weekend, which was an absolute blast!

(I’ll have photos of the festivities in a later entry.)

    I am new to quilting and when I first saw your “Hideaway” fabric – it really caught my attention. Green is my favorite color and I love the houses! I would love to make some placemats for my parents with this! Thanks for such a bright and cheery blog – I love reading all about you both and everything that you are doing.
