Mega Update

Wow, it has been awhile since I've posted.  A lot has gone on and is still going full throttle.  First of all, I just got off a crazy wedding weekend.  Three weddings this weekend that I will be creating paintings for!!!  Unfortunately, I am only one person and I was in one of the weddings, so I wasn't able to attend all of them.  Instead, I'm going to be receiving some image assistance from a couple of florists and photographers.

First wedding on the account was one I was in up in Three Oaks, Michigan, for a fellow GVSU alumni friend of mine....Christine and her now husband, Mike.  It was a beautiful event at Willow Harbor Vineyard, and the weather couldn't have cooperated any better for a fall afternoon wedding.  I can't wait to see the photographer's photographs of the day.  We went so many places for pictures, including a pumpkin patch!  Here are some images from the day.  Oh, and a side note....I also created all of the jewelry for us bridesmaids!

Notice how gorgeous her flowers are!!!  They are going to make a beautiful painting.

Here's a cute pic of me with the bride and the rest of the girls. 

Close up of the jewelry set I made for each of the bridesmaids.  Great fall colors!

Wedding #2 was for friends of the family, Victoria and Zak and located in Lake Forest, Illinois.....nowhere close to my location in Michigan.  I got really lucky with this wedding and was able to view the bouquet on Friday before I headed northeast for the weekend.  Even better, the bouquet was created by Kehoe Designs....a fantasticly reputable event design firm.
Victoria's bouquet turned out to be very photogenic.  Expect to see compositions very soon.

Wedding #3 was located in St. Louis, Missouri.....the farthest of them all.  Since I didn't have the luxury of seeing the bouquet early, I'm making new friends and putting my trust into Natalie and Mike's florist and photographer.  I have no doubt that John Fedele (photographer) and Montano Grant (florist) will be able provide me with some amazing images of Natalie's bouquet.

Next on the agenda is some preparation painting for this Friday where I will be attending another First Friday event at Buss Flower Shop in Libertyville, IL.  September's Friday event turned out to be a huge hit, so I encourage you to come out for October's from 6-9pm.  There will be a band again along with food and beverages.  I'll be sure to update before the weekend to give you a preview of what I will be showing at the event.  Tomorrow is a day of painting, so stay tuned for a serious update!!!
