The first aisle runner this weekend was for Kate and Mark. They requested Monogram B-3 with a slight font change just for the "K" and the "M" in their names. It is in watermelon pink and black. Congratulations, Kate and Mark!
Next, we have Melissa and Daniel. Melissa requested Monogram B-12 in blush pink and black on her extra long 125' runner. Congratulations, Melissa!
Lastly, we have LaShundra and Lorrel. LaShundra showed me her invitations for some inspiration, so we ended up doing Monogram B-12 with some font changes for the name and date to match her modern invitations. The "M" is olive green with a coating a silver glitter overlay, with the names and the date in an eggplant purple. Congratulations, LaShundra!
Shaina and Dwayne are getting married this week! Shaina placed a rush order and wanted Monogram B-12 in Tiffany blue and gold. Congratulations, Shaina!
Adaeze provided her own monogram with their own initials and wedding date. The monogram was painted in champagne and a soft pink for their 9.10.11 wedding. Congratulations, Adaeze!
This past week was finals week at graduate school, which means two things... the Spring semester is a wrap for me, and I didn't feel compelled to study or do homework this weekend! I've only got a one week window of time off from school before summer classes start though. I did take a little bit of time this weekend and had a wonderful date night with the hubby which involved going out for wings (at Quaker Steak and Lube for those of you lucky enough to have one in your area) and going to see Fast Five. It's a great movie! Be sure to stick around after the credits for another scene!
Now onto the aisle runners I worked on this weekend...
First, we have Danielle and Joseph. They wanted an all black runner with the phrase "Today I Marry My Best Friend." They also wanted everything to be in a cursive script... I love what we came up with!
Next, we have a monogram for ANOTHER Danielle! This one, again, was in all black. Danielle requested to keep it simple... just an "M" for the primary initial, the date, and black flourish underneath.
Last, but definitely not least, we have Carmen and Mark. Carmen is having a destination wedding in New York City next month and wanted to incorporate that into her aisle runner. She also wanted a simple, cursive "L", and a modern font for their names and date. I love the final product!
It's no secret that pink is my favorite color, so I absolutely LOVED painting Jenn and Mike's runner. They had a white runner with Monogram B-1 in light pink and black, but requested that the names be in cursive and the date be spelled out. This runner will be on it's way to Canada tomorrow! Congrats, Jenn!
This will be the only runner update for this weekend... I'd love to have painted more, but this upcoming week is finals week in grad school, and it's demanding quite a bit of my time and attention!
UPDATE: Here's a photo of the aisle runner in action on the day of adorned with flower petals down each side of the runner! How gorgeous!
