Meredith's Aisle Runner

Working with Meredith was really a dream!  She had her monogram already done and just wanted it painted onto her aisle runner.   She worked with me to pick out her paint colors and we basically moved it right from her computer onto her gorgeous custom aisle runner!
Meredith is documenting the journey to her May 22nd wedding day on her blog,  Soon To Be McGee.

Wedding Day Bouquets

Flowers are one of the most important design details of your wedding day, and you can tell how much I love them by looking at my designs.   I am always looking for floral inspirations and I just so happened to find some in a big way from Garden Gate Floral Design in Kenmore, WA.  Take a look at a few of their amazing floral designs that I found on Wedding Wire:

Carmen's Aisle Runner

Carmen and I started working on the design for her wedding aisle runner last summer.  She had this beautiful concept and sent me photos of it to have it transformed onto an aisle runner for her wedding ceremony.  I sent her a few drawings, and we finalized the design a few months ago.   I worked on painting it for a couple of weeks and here are the photos before it left my studio.  I have to apologize because the photos were taken before the fabric had been pressed, but I was running out of daylight!    Also, the design was painted on approximately 10 feet in length, so I didn't have the necessary space in my studio for the proper photos.  I am really relying on Carmen to send me photos of this gorgeous aisle runner in all its glory on her wedding day!

Placed at approximately the center of the runner are two gold intertwined wedding bands and the couple's names.  Below that is a painting of hearts - most of them grey, but the two hearts that found each other are in red.  Below the artwork is a poem and their wedding date.  The sides of the runner have borders in silver glitter.
Any concept or design that you are using for your wedding can also be used on your aisle runner!  Contact us today and we'll get started preparing the aisle for your grand entrance!

Wedding Day Photography

It takes months to plan every last detail of your wedding, but the day goes by so quickly and it's so important to make sure that you have a photographer that can capture every one of these important details so you can cherish them forever.   I noticed the work of Knight Photo Studio located in Buffalo, New York one day while visiting Wedding Wire.  Here are some of my favorite images from them:
My personal theory is that the kid might not have been so miserable if he hand a hand painted aisle runner to look at!
Have a great weekend everybody!

Summer Wedding Inspiration

What a FANTASTIC wedding cake.  I love the colors and the draping and sunflowers made from fondant.  I would love to design a matching wedding aisle runner and invitation suite around this image.  Summer brides?   Let me know if you are up to it!

Fuschia Wedding Inspiration

It seems that most of the brides I have been working with lately are having fuschia or pink as their wedding color.  So I thought that a fuschia inspiration board was in order.   Have a great weekend everybody!

I saw this photo, and for a moment it took my breath away.  How beautiful is this dress?  I was of course poking around at Etsy, and I came across this satin and organza wedding gown at Your Fairy Tale Wedding Shop.

Monogram Aisle Runner

I just finished up this beautiful aisle runner for Michelle K.    Michelle had selected a design with original artwork from our Stylish Aisles collection, and we tweaked it a bit to make it just perfect for her.    I think this aisle runner came out so great in her colors and letters and I hope to get photos from the wedding!
You don't have to spend a lot to have a something special to set foot on as you make your Grand Entrance!

Etsy Wedding Finds

I came across this great shop on Etsy, and wanted to share it with everyone.  I can always appreciate the work of fellow artists and painters and I have never seen anyone doing anything like this.

At Norakaren's shop you can find shoes that are custom painted  for your special occasion.  Isn't that amazing?  She will purchase dyeable shoes for you and hand paint them to your specifications.  I love this idea and think that it's a really wonderful way to do something special for your wedding day.  Who doesn't love shoes?  And what's better than someone painting custom designs on shoes for you??  Take a look at these:

Norakaren's shop is brimming with interesting things, so you should be sure to get on over there and take a look

Hand Painted Invitation Collection

So you may know that I am putting together a catalog of unique wedding invitations that feature my original hand painted artwork.  Although the collection is not quite ready for its "unveiling" yet, I wanted to share one of my favorite designs with you.
This is a vintage style wedding invitation with one of my favorite paintings and the muted green background really makes it pop.... and I can't stop looking at this one !

Please keep in mind that any of my drawings/paintings can be used on any of your wedding accessories like aisle runners, place cards, table numbers, programs,  menus, ring pillows, etc., etc., etc.!

Custom Aisle Runner

I just finished packing up this beautiful aisle runner for Luisa and Rick's wedding!  When I spoke with Luisa, she told me she was looking for a black fabric aisle runner painted in white with a flourished monogram.  I did a few designs, and this was the one that they selected.  I think it's just beautiful!
