A Unique Outdoor Wedding Keepsake

Joe Bagley Outdoor Wedding ArtFlorida-based paper cutting artist Joe Bagley contacted me recently to suggest that his original works of art--each created from a single sheet of black paper--would make a unique keepsake or cherished gift for the bride and groom who marry outdoors, and I agree! "All designs are custom made, and I work directly with the couples to create exactly what they want," Joe told me. Each design is painstakingly hand-cut with X-Acto blades, and Joe can even incorporate images of the couple or their special outdoor wedding location, along with such personal details as names and a date.

The image at right is of "the bridge in the park where my wife and I were married last [year]," Joe explained. For his first wedding anniversary in June, which tradition dictates is the "paper" anniversary, Joe created a larger papercut for his wife depicting the large pagoda tree they were married beneath. "It will hang over our bed so that we can sleep under the same tree every night," he said. These intricate yet simple black and white creations would also look fantastic hanging on an office wall, so they're an ideal gift for a hard-to-buy-for groom or new husband.

Joe Bagley Papercutting Art for WeddingsConsidering the time that goes into each papercut--from 20 to 100 hours--Joe's one-of-a-kind designs are affordably priced from $55 for an 8x10 profile and from $125 for an 8x10 location or other original design. Both can be ordered via Joe's Etsy shop, or contact the artist via email to discuss your ideas and commission a piece. Allow at least two weeks for creation of your one-of-a-kind outdoor wedding keepsake.
