Our Summer Wedding


Today we have been invited to John and Mary's summer wedding at Art Journal Journey.   John and Mary will use the carriage to visit Moo-Mania and More whose theme this fortnight is Wheels. 

Mary has picked charmeuse that has a silk satin finish.  A white lace overlay was sewn onto the dress she made herself. 

Because the evenings are cool, she picked a bodice top to cover the gown.  Her traditional veil was attached to a stylish cap.  Her choice of flowers included pink and purple roses.

John chose a stylish black gabardine jacket and lightweight white cotton twill trousers.  He paired the white shirt with a pale pink tie and wore a pink and purple boutonnière in the left lapel of his jacket.

John chartered a carriage to bring Mary to the chapel,

then take them on their honeymoon after the reception.  I hope you RSVP'd with love.

Materials used include a sheet of heavy card stock spritzed with handmade shimmering mists, three background papers, a wedding photo from my files, washi tape, a 3-D Cinderella carriage, pink and purple crayons, a heart button, and computer generated text.

 
Bleubeard, my fearless and welcoming co-host and I are delighted you stopped by and invite you to join us at Art Journal Journey where the theme this month is Summertime Love.  






We are also joining Moo-Mania and More whose theme this fortnight is Wheels.  Won't you join us?

Loved the description of the bridal wardrobe. Background and embellishments really give the page a feeling of a wedding from a bygone era. The pumpkin carriage is very cool. I've never seen anything like it.

Elizabeth, I really liked the addition of colour on the flowers here, and that you coordinated it with the background on the lettering. That carriage is really fun too!

This is such a wonderful, romantic piece. I love it. And the pumpkin coach just sets it off.

John and Mary look like a nice couple. Maybe a little bit older, so maybe it is a second wedding. Or perhaps they decided to renew their vows. :) Perfect page for the summer! I think a lot of people like a summer wedding, and maybe even a garden wedding. I like your wheels too! That one classy ride. :) Enjoy the evening. Hugs-Erika
