I Thee Wed…


Gooooing to the chapel and were gooooing to get maaarried…..Well, not I (hee! hee!), but a beautiful couple named Matt and Melissa are tying the knot! Melissa's lovely and super kind mother Ann commissioned me to make a vintage bridal piece for her daughters upcomming wedding shower.  I was delighted, because I've never created a wedding piece before so this was an exciting and fun challange for me.  

Here is the happy and beautiful couple!!!



The centerpiece is a lovely vintage bride doll that I froofed up a bit and she is standing on top of a faux assemblage cake. 



So sweet and pretty she is.



I wanted this piece to be soft and dreamy full of pretty papers, lace, tulle, rhinestone bling, and beautiful trims.




The lovely details…..

Honeycomb wedding bells that I bought at Michaels and "tea-stained" them gently and added gold glitter. Trust me…I went threw a few of these to get them just perfect. They are so delicate and if you get them too wet, they tear easily.  



I adorned the sides with vintage wedding greeting card images. I love how the image looks so elegant against the gold doiley.

With this ring….


White doves…a symbol of peace.  


A vintage blue garter I found at a local antique shop. PERFECT!!!!



Adorable little wedding cherubs.



What's a wedding without a "Just Married" car ??? This sweet and final touch was truly a last minute thought. I had this pink little car sitting on my shelf in my studio, and I just looked up at it, and my "light bulb" went off. ;)


Instead of traditional aluminum cans trailing off the bumper. I opted for pretty pearl and shiny bits!



I am so happy and pleased with how this piece turned out. Im delighted that it will be a part of Melissa's wedding shower, and I HOPE she will love and cherish this piece for many years and anniversary celebrations to come!!!  


Have a wonderful week sweet friends!!!!

Congrats to the sweet couple who getting married:)

Again Jenn, you’ve done it! What a wonderful talent you have, i’m so glad i found your blog all those months ago! You ALWAYS inspire me!! The “cake” is GORGEOUS! do you have one of those stamp pads by Tim Holtz? that might do the trick for the aged look? just a thought….

Wow, what a stunner! You’ve thought of everything and put your special, graceful touch on it. Well done.

Gorgeous! I really love your light bulb idea! Those beautiful jewels look beautiful trailing behind the pink car! I agree with misschell those Tim Holtz distress ink pads may make it easier for aging the honeycombs. You out did yourself Miss Jenn. I am sure the bride will cherish it and it will be the bell of the shower!


Truly a gorgeous creation! Love all the detailed photos too – you’re such an inspiration!

Jenn, it’s the most beautiful wedding centerpiece I’ve ever seen! Truly stunning! You are one creative angel!

Beautiful! My favorite part is definitely the baubles hanging off the car bumper!

I’m new here and I came by way of Karla πŸ™‚ Your site sure is an eye candy. And this wedding doll and cake you made is soooo pretty! The cake has lots of special bits and pieces that a wedding always have present.
I enjoyed looking from picture to picture and seeing every detail. So cute. Love the pink car with gems tinkling at the back (now, I think everybody would love that for real LOL)
Oh I’m pretty sure the bride would be very happy receiving this. Well, I’m no bride and I got excited LOL

Jenn, that is truly one of the most beautiful pieces ever!!! Your attention to detail on this (and everything you do!) is amazing! That doll has the prettiest face, I love her! I love the baubles hanging from the car! The images you used around the cake are so beautiful and just perfect!! What a lucky bride! She will love it and cherish it forever!
Love ya,

Hi Jenn..this is just an amazing centerpiece! I love the little pink car with all the jewels trailing behind it…how creative was that!!! Once again, you have outdone yourself!!

Jenn, your version of the Wedding Card / Keepsake box turned out beautiful. I have always loved couture de papier Creations. And you added a bit of whimsy with that “pink” car. I am sure the piece will be treasured. My sister made a lovely Box for our daughters wedding and she loves it!
Hugs, Diane

Beautiful! So this is what you were talking about on Flickr! I’ve been working on a faux wedding cake too…but the fake frosted kind. I love how you added the garter! I’m inspired to display my garter now! The little pink caddy is so cute!
Come visit me!

Jenn, this is SO pretty!! what an amazing gift for the bride, she is going to FLIP when she sees it! you used all the best stuff to froof it up. Love the “wedding prayer” with the rhinestone circle around their names… perfect.

This is so pretty – I am especially loving the “bling” coming off the car.
Also congratulations on the magazine feature.

This may be the first of such an exquisite creation, but, I am sure it will not be the last. Every detail is so carefully crafted!
This bride is a lucky lady…fantastic work!!
Enjoy the rest of your day!!
