OCLDT30 – Wedding wishes for the Happy Couple


I went to a good friend (I’ve known since kindergarten) of mine’s wedding yesterday! 15 minutes before leaving for the wedding, I whipped up a card for the happy couple! All I can say is thank goodness for the Our Craft Lounge sketch over at The Lounge this week!

I used Our Craft Lounge set Bird and Groom to make a black/white wedding card. Used pattern paper from DCWV La Crème matstack, top note in white, scallop circle nestie in black and plain circle nestie in white. Using a black prisma color marker, I colored in some of the designs on the cake.  The sentiment was attached with Craft Glue Dots Dot N’ Go while the scalloped circle layer was attached with Pop Up Glue Dots. I had some “wedding rings” from previous weddings I have attended that I attached to the ribbon.


All in all I think the bride and groom will love the card as I really love how it turned out in such a short amount of time.  And for your enjoyment, a few pictures from the wedding:

Mr. & Mrs. Bogan and her little girl, Madeline.

Their first dance as husband and wife. I love how I captured them and had to add some softness to the picture.

I loved how simple but elegant the tables were decorated. (I think those are heaters in the background as we are in a shelter house of sorts as the wedding was to be outside and the reception in here but it rained so the wedding was held inside the shelter house too.)DSCF0556

The cake was like the decorations, simple but elegant. I loved the oval shape of it and oooohhh so yummy. We all had two pieces as each layer had a different flavor middle.

They had Dan Foster of Dan’s Portraits and Caricatures come during the reception to draw caricatures of us (free of charge) if we wished. I will have to say we had fun trying to figure out what/who he was when we saw him come in with his ‘suitcase’.

Here he is drawing caricatures of the twins that I have known all my life. (We were joking at our table that really he only needed one twin up there to draw their


Finally there was a chance for Ger and I to have our caricatures drawn. Let me tell you, Dan is hilarious while drawing. My cheeks were hurting so much from laughing the entire time. Here is our caricature with a heart between us saying 17 as next month will be our 17th anniversary. (twas all his idea as he asked us how long we had been married.)


Thank you, Catherine and Tristan, for a fun Anniversary gift even though you didn’t know you were giving one!  It was a fun, relaxing evening out for us (no kids!) and a great time seeing my school friends again that were there that I haven’t seen in a few years. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

       Thank you for stopping by!
