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!!!!
