Wedding Photos

10.22.2008
I am so excited today! I am finally able to share Nella's wedding photos with you. A lot more are in the pipeline. But for now, I have four. Enjoy them! (On public demand, I have put larger pics now...)
The one above in black and white is of course, the bride - Nella. My wonderful Nella! Over the wedding project, we struck up a friendship that I am so proud of! She is a doctor and also a crafter herself. An ETSY-crafter at that! I love the way just the flowers are highlighted. Its so elegant. I had seen a couple of photos like this before and was hoping that I get one too. It was like the photographer - John Carroll - read my mind.

The 2nd one has Nella and her Maid of Honor Ruth. Ruth is a very close friend and a colleague of Nella. It was around Ruth's gown, that the wedding theme was created; including of course, my flowers.
The third photo is that of posies that Nella decorated her wedding table and aisle with... This was a HUGE project- bouquets, posies, a vine for the wedding table, centerpieces, boutonnieres, corsages! And I was a little nervous as to how they would turn out. My FIRST full wedding order, after all. But as I know now, I didn't need to be that nervous. :) Of course a big thanks goes to Nella for that. She put her complete faith in me and my craft. Without her, I wouldn't have been able to achieve what I have.

The last photo is of course, of Nella's shoes and her wedding bouquet. I love it how the bouquet, the shoes and the lovely quilted background go together. Maybe that is why professional photos are so treasured :).
Okay, that's it... for today. Let me know what you think.... your words mean the world to me.

Sarang - Thank you for standing by me, when no one believed in me. Thank you for supporting my craft even when we had no money. Thank you for your love and continued encouragement. Without you, none of this would have been possible.

Yukiko - (Well everyone... if you've been to my website, you should be knowing already that Yukiko - the fantastic Yukiko - is my teacher) Thank you for your comments. Your words mean a lot to me. I came to you at a point where I did not know that I could do anything craftsy, but I still wanted to learn. Without your talent and your patience, I couldn't have achieved whatever little I have. You have gifted me the knowledge of this wonderful craft. I am indebted to you and I hope I do you proud some day.

While on this, a big thank you to Ken and Tim of Deco Clay Craft Academy.

Ok Deb, I am an official follower of your blog. =)

I am the lucky bride that got to work with Deb. It was amazing how well we worked together - with the distance and communicating via email. The bouquets looked so real that both the makeup artist and John, the photographer, had to pick them up and inspect them for themselves! You can't ask for a great compliment than that. John also was impressed with how well the colours matched the manor. What can I say but thanks again Deb for making my day so magical.
