EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT A UNION OF LOVE




Submission for Challenge # 7
I created the invitation for Jason & Amy's wedding using cream vellum paper, edged with a punched heart border, embossed with their initials and tied with cream & gold satin ribbons and a flower. I covered 3 large baskets, with cream satin, ribbon & pearls and this small one was used for the flower girl to throw the rose petals down the aisle. Each table had a love themed gold picture frame and the place cards were as well vellum paper on cream card stock. The cones, were stamped with the poem
"As you start your life together,
And as all the years unfold,
May the special joys of marriage,
Be yours to have and hold."
The tall vellum booklet, with ribbons and a cream flower, had all the wedding program details. It took several months to prepare all of this by hand, but it was soooo worth it when it all came together and looked beautiful.
