Celebrity Wedding Planner Tiffany Nieves-Cook of Dream Design Weddings and Natural Impression Design Partner to Launch Luxury Invitation line at the National Stationery Show
At this very moment, my husband’s cousin is disputing her doctorate on the African languages Wolof and Fulfulde, and how the local languages gets new life alongside French in Senegal thanks to the use of SMS (cellphones) & Internet…well, something along these lines..:)
Unfortunately we weren’t able to be there in person, but we’re all proud of her & naturally I created her a card she’ll get with her little gift :)
It’s a simple card – yet pretty fresh and summery in colors.. notice the stupid holes along the journal-note? I started sewing around the edge but turns out my sewing machine is acting bleh once again. Really, I should just bite the dust and buy a new one soon, sigh…I do use it a lot after all :/ Nevertheless…once I realized it was fubar I was like, bleh, and continued sewing holes around the note since there were already holes on it sorta.
I used Pink Paislee’s 365 degrees on this card, along with a birdcage-die cut from a Hambly Screenprints-transparency (seriously, these adds such lovely touches to about anything, and lasts forever too :) ). Tag from Elle’s Studio, wooden button that I whitewashed from Maya Road and hm, yeah, edgepunch from Fiskars…think that’s it for this card.
Have a lovely weekend! :)
19th March 2010
Welgemeend, Cape Town,
Meet Mark and Bridget, a photographer-writer team, and oh! what a great husband-wifey team they are!
Bridget McNulty contacted us a little less than a year ago and very matter-of-factly informed us that we'd be photographing the BEST wedding EVER on the March 19th 2011.
You can imagine our curiosity and excitement when, a year later, we arrived at Welgemeend and found this to be quite true! We were blown away by the love and attention Bridget had poured into every little detail from the tiny succulents to the awesome Skinny La Minx Seating Chart to the 1000 Origami Cranes (999 folded by Bridget, 01 folded by Mark :P), to the Watermelon Lings and Pop Rocks and the 'Book-Ring-Pillow' and and and! Wowzers!
Utter photographic bliss!
Thank you friends, for letting us be part of the BESTEST wedding EVER! :)
Oh, and I almost forget to mention the Super-Moon! The Moon appeared a whole 30% larger on Mark & Bridget's wedding night. Even Nature was celebrating this awesome union! :P
It was an honor to have photographed both the son (Andy) and daughter (Jenny) of the Lauer family. When I shoot multiple weddings in a family it is so special to see the parents and even the grandparents again.... and even new little babies! Congrats to Andy and Teresa on their second little miracle.
Now on to my wedding day favs....
Jenny got the idea of having a special fragrance for the wedding from her maid of honor. I just totally love this idea and recommend it to every bride. Choose a special perfume and wear it on your wedding day, then every time you wear the scent you will instantly be reminded of your wedding and all the feelings and emotions you experienced that day.
The freezing wind and snow covered ground didn't hinder the ability to get beautiful and heart warming photographs.
I just LOVE this groom's cake - incorporating the Kory's love of camping and Van Halen....
I think it is so neat when a DJ invites daughters and fathers and sons and mothers out on the dance floor during the dance. I love walking around on the dance floor with my camera and photographing all the different parent child relationships celebrating along with the bride and groom.
Congratulations Jenny and Kory - it was an honor to photograph your wedding day!
