More wedding stuff. Sorry. This was one of my favorite parts of the wedding. Because I knew that so many beloved DC and Danish friends and family wouldn’t be able to come to the wedding in Southern California, I thought of how I could involve them. I was enchanted with the narrow streets of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen and their quirky signage like so…
I decided to replicate it in a newer way after seeing the latest Anthropologie catalog:
I sent out a color palette and inspiration images to my friends and family along with a blank canvas banner with the instruction to go wild. 
The results were phenomenal. My sister Caitlin made this one for us:
while a few friends made these below. April collaged flowers from magazines (on left), Meredith (second from left) painted the Danish flag with a flower from each place we have lived: The Canadian maple leaf (Paul’s birthplace), California poppy (my home), Danish daisy (Paul’s home and now our home) DC cherry blossoms (my home for the last four years); cousin Bryson Gill (middle) painted a lovely bridal couple on an awesome spray painted background; Cramer (second from right) painted hers while in Copenhagen and got the Scandinavian details down; Paul’s Dad (right) created a floral masterpiece which we have dubbed Jepsen Pollack. There are so many more to show but I don’t have the pictures back quite yet. I can’t wait to tell their stories.
Caitlin also made this one to lead the way to the reception site.
