Together Forever

Candace-Adrian's Wedding
It was a beautiful day to get married. We did anticipate the weather to be cold but was really hoping for no rain.
And it turned out perfect.
I am pleased to announce the marriage of Candace to my son, Adrian. It was a day to remember-February 14, 2009.
I thought I'd share with you some of the wedding stuff I did. Candace's mom, Arlene is quite a crafter herself. I have to show you some of the stuff she made on my next post.

These are her colors since the Wedding Date is Valentine's Day.
Basic Black, Real Red, and Whisper White
Here is the invitation that I made which is really simple.
Using the top note die cut for the front, I love how the sentiment just flow through. The wide oval punch with just the right amount of black paper for shadowing.
I used the SA wheel for the bottom part.

Here is the inside of the card.

The place cards were done using the Lots of tags die cut which came just in time for me to make this.
This is just a sample without the names yet.

The Wedding Program was placed in each table with the Event Program and Wedding Party information. I used Real red paper behind the vellum and again using the top note, it makes a nice topper for this program.

Candace wanted an Asian theme for the Party Favors, so she thought of getting this take out boxes and I just designed them. Inside were Chocolate Fortune cookies.
