Headed out tonight....

My Cousin April is getting married soon!! :)
This photo is from my wedding day with my gorgeous cousin April nearly 8 years ago! Her own wedding day is this weekend, July 31st 2010

I'm so excited to be attending her wedding and see all my family again, I'm bringing Briellah with me since she still flys free on my lap. I wish my whole family could come.... why must AZ be so far away from KY?

I've been working on a painting for their wedding day, an artistic mat to frame their wedding vows. I was so honored and loved working on this project.

It is a very simple design of two trees of different types, the strength & beauty of the Oak & Birch trees..... entwined embracing eachother to create one canopy... symbolic of the husband & wife. The colors are soft browns, greens and a touch of shimmery bronze in the lovebirds & flourish designs. The ivy leaves twist together to symbolize their love with a heart.

I also painted a Ketubah for her sister's wedding over a year ago... see photos of this at my LuvARoo blog.

I love weddings, especially those of family members who are completely head over heals in love... with eachother & with the Lord! I'll be home after this weekend, so for now goodbye... I'm headed out!

Lovebirds Nest - Ring Bearer Pillow

~ Lovebirds Nest ~
Ring Bearer Pillow
Sweet Love, Vows and Wedding Rings....
I created this "Lovebird nest" ring pillow for an upcoming wedding, my son is the ring bearer and daughter the flowergirl. They are going to be adorable, I can't wait... August 14th 2010, Casey & Emily's Wedding!

I also picked up the pretty Guava color sash/bow for the flower girls dress!
The pillow is made from the same ivory satin fabric as the flowergirls dress, leftovers.... so it didn't cost me a thing! :)  I replicated the gathered texture of the dress on the pillow and long ivory ribbons hold the rings securely into place. They look so cute together, I can't wait to post pics of my kidos all dressed up!
See more on the photos from the flowergirl dress I made earlier.
It turned out so pretty, it was very simple... you could easily make this with some crafty magic for your own wedding! I found the nest, feathers, moss & eggs all at Michaels craft store. I painted the wooden eggs a pearly white color, and hot glued the nest decor together. You could make your own pillow like I did or dress up a store bought one as well!

Flower Girl Dress

~ Flower Girl Wedding Gown ~
Here is a preview of my latest project for my little girl Eliannah who is going to be in our long time friends upcoming beautiful wedding! 
Ivory Satin Ruching Flower Girl Gown, designed by me!

Lots of tulle under this mid length skirt to make it pretty & puffy.. I'm so excited to get her in this dress for some pictures! I also made a matching ivory floral headband to go with this dress. The waist will have a large ribbon sash in the color Guava from her wedding, I still need to pick this up.

I'm really loving how the bodice turned out, the photo doesn't quite do it justice or capture all the beadwork.
I hand gathered & embelished this halter top, it was a fun project. Kind of made me want to go try my wedding dress on again... ahhh nothing more magical than a wedding!

Micah will be a ring bearer too, can't wait to get his outfit!
See the Lovebird Nest ring bearer pillow here!
Their theme is lovebirds and she so graciously gave me liberty to create the flowergirl dress & ring pillow! :) Thanks Emily, your gonna be a gorgeous bride!
