A Modern Fairytale – A Collaboration with The Day’s Design & Heather Cisler Photography

As featured in Artfully Wed and Style Me Pretty!

“In the early morning dew, our story begins. It’s a love story, a sweet tale revolving around fantasy and the belief that we are in control of our own fairytales. As a modern twist, our bride left a simple note for her groom to meet her at dawn by the river where they will pledge their forevers to one another. So there she waits by candlelight for him to arrive. In the spring of the year, the dawn of the day, they make a new start together.

We sought to create a fairytale, an elegantly classic affair that might take place in a ballroom, in an enchanted forest or in Prince Charming’s castle. Our focus was on simple touches that would feel at home in any of these surroundings – timeless elements that never seem to go out of style, satin linens, ivory plates, long flowing veils, a little lace and a touch of sparkle.

There she waits by candlelight in a classic princess ballgown as he arrives with a handful of wild blooms he stopped to pick along the way. After saying “I do” they enjoy a lovely breakfast for two, a sip of champagne and of course, lots of our gorgeous wedding cake. Floral chandeliers and lots of love complete our fantasy bringing every girl’s fairytale to life.” – The Day’s Design

Pink & Gold

I love the color pink. I know… kind of stereotypical for a Mary Kay Lady to like pink… but I  just. can’t. help. it! I also have an obsessive fondness for gold… or at least anything that shimmers, glitters, and sparkles. Sparkly crystals or rhinestones?! Yes, please!! But I especially LOVE the combination of pink and gold! I think using gold as an accent has a way of bringing sophistication to the girliness of pink.

And I was just lucky enough to get the chance to work with a bride to bring her gorgeous pink and gold wedding to life: from the wedding invitation envelopes all the way to the escort and table cards. She was such a joy to work with and her mom was a hoot!

Thank you to Sara, of Sara Mac Photography, for sharing your captures of my work in action!

Silhouette Poinsettia Flower & Card

One of my lovely Silhouette customers messaged me today to say how much she had fumbled and played around with my Silhouette Poinsettia Flower & Card design to try and cut out the white design.

poinsettia flower & card

I can totally see how misleading it is from the picture… it appears that there is a matte included that can be cut for this shape. Sadly, I didn’t design it that way. I intended for it to be placed onto any size/shape of paper that you wish. However, you also deserve a matte to go around it as well! So here it is for you to download for FREE! Please remember, it is for personal use only. 🙂 To insert it into your Silhouette, open the application, go to File, then Import to My Library. It will be added under My Library > My Own Designs.
