I often get requests for black aisle runners, so I thought I would show just a few that I've done. I don't just do white and ivory runners... if you're looking for a black or colored runner, just let me know what color and length you're looking for, and I'll make it happen. :)
First, we have Jessica and Brad's aisle runner complete with elegant flourishes above and below the monogram.
Then, we have Ashley and Daniel who wanted a monogram of their names and date. Simple and classy!
Inspired by Kim Kardashian's custom aisle runner, Cassandra and Fabian inquired about a white aisle runner with a black satin ribbon border down both sides, along with a black flourish from Monogram U-5. This is a great option to add an extra splash of color down the whole length of the aisle! Ribbon borders are only offered on upgraded runners, which are made of a polyester gabardine fabric. This fabric is offered in many colors and features a generous 3" satin ribbon border that is also available in a variety of colors.
Crystal requested Monogram B-3 in red and navy blue for her aisle runner. Then 10' above this monogram...
... she requested the quote "And They Lived Happily Ever After" in red. How sweet!
I couldn't agree more. :)
Thank you to Erica who let me paint this wonderful quote, "The greatest thing in life is to love and be loved," in the center of her aisle runner for her September wedding!
A very popular design... Grant and Esther wanted a simple black and white runner using Monogram U-9 with just first names, last initial, and the black scroll flourish.
Holly and Des had a runner with a lilac and eggplant monogram and the quote "Today I Marry My Best Friend" on the bottom.
Janelle and Jamal's aisle runner uses Monogram U-7, but instead features the quote, "And the Two Will Become One," in a flat gold and black.
Jennifer requested a monogram with a font to match her invitations in teal and black. She also wanted a butterfly, which I was happy to incorporate into the monogram.
Jerrica requested a white swirl patterned aisle runner with Monogram B-12 in persimmon and black for their October wedding in Connecticut.
Jessica and Scott had Monogram B-12 in a very popular wedding color combination... lime green and eggplant purple!

Annie sent me the monogram used on her invitations and asked if I could paint it on her runner. Of course I can! I love the heart-shaped monogram and the elegance of the whole thing... this runner was shipped to Australia for Annie and Charl's wedding this month!
Ashley is a friend of mine from high school that requested Monogram B-1 with a glittery silver and black on a white aisle runner. Glitter overlays are getting to be a popular choice... let me know if you'd like some shimmer on your aisle runner!
Zack and Becca are getting married on the beach, and they wanted a monogram in coral and teal with the words underneath "sandy toes and salty kisses." I adore it!
Berniquea and Courtney requested a twist of Monogram B-1 with the quote "Today I Marry My Best Friend" underneath in a teal and gray.
Celia and Giovanni requested Monogram B-1 in burgundy and black for their November wedding in New York.
Chalonda e-mailed with a monogram she saw and liked and wondered if I could paint something like that on the runner for her. You can see what we came up with, and I painted it using her wedding colors of fuchsia and navy blue.
Courtney requested a white aisle runner with an existing monogram that she provided. I love the simplicity of it... just her and the groom's initials enclosed in a double circle in black paint. I'm glad I was able to get this rush order completed for her in time!
Crystal's sister, Aimee, helped her sister order a white aisle runner with Monogram U-9 in black for their November wedding in New Jersey!
Crystal and Prometheus needed an extra long 125' runner rush ordered with Monogram B-12 in turquoise and black for their June wedding in Oklahoma.
Ebony contacted me requesting an aisle runner in magenta and brown with "A Love Song..." on it along with music notes. Ebony is a singer, and Ryan is a musician and singer, so they wanted to incorporate music into their wedding theme. Love it!
Alright, it's time to play catch up! With my 80-page business case written for my graduate thesis for the semester, a runner drying on my craft table, and my 10-month old down for a nap, I finally have time to blog some updates of the 100+ aisle runners that I've been working on in the last year. Here's a start! :)
Anh contacted me wanting an aisle runner that incorporated the design that her fiance, Khoi, did with their initials. It's an absolutely gorgeous design, and can you believe he created it by hand?! She simply wanted to add their names and date underneath in all black on a white, swirl patterned aisle runner.
Check out Barbara and Jason's aisle runner... They requested Monogram U-5 with the flourishes in tiffany blue, their names and date in black, and the ampersand in silver. Flourishes are extra fun when they're in pretty colors. :)
Ashley requested an ivory french lace patterned aisle runner with monogram B-7 in chocolate brown and cherry red. (Mmmm... chocolate and cherries...)
Amy was one of the lucky brides that was able to snag the coveted 11.11.11 wedding date. She requested the quote, "Soulmates... Two halves of the same soul joining together in life's journey" on their white swirl patterned aisle runner. Font colors are dark burgundy and coffee brown.
Aladrian requested a white aisle runner with Monogram B-11 in red and dark chocolate brown for their wedding in Alabama.
Allison requested Monogram B-1 with the date spelled out with a glittery silver for the "M" and black for the names and date. Glitter overlays are a great option for those looking for that extra sparkle for only $30 for the initial! Who doesn't like looking at shiny things? :)
Amber loved Jenn and Mike's aisle runner and wanted one with a monogram just like it! The colors used in theirs was a coral-pink and brown.
Alaine and Marques requested Monogram B-3 in indigo and pistachio for their May wedding in South Carolina.
I'm very excited to announce a new addition to our product line... ribbon borders! This is a great option to add an extra splash of color down the whole length of the aisle! Ribbon borders are only offered on upgraded runners, which are made of a polyester gabardine fabric. This fabric is offered in white or ivory (please inquire for other colors) and features a generous 3" satin ribbon border. Pricing for these runners simply follow the standard pricing, but have an additional fee of $4/foot (with a minimum of $140). For example, a 40' ribbon border runner would be an additional $160 over the base price.
Simply check the "ribbon border" box on the order form to order, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
As you can see, it's been a while since my last blog update... I assure you, for good reason! I have been busy filling the backlog of orders with my maternity leave, and of course, spending time with the new addition to my life. Please meet Nolan, my wonderful baby boy born on January 23 coming in at 7 pounds and 10 ounces! Photos are courtesy of Kelley Ryden and Tracy Raver photography.
I will make a post soon with some of the aisle runners I have been working on!
Our baby boy is expected to arrive around January 22nd, and we couldn’t be more excited for his arrival! What does this mean for you?

Thank you so much for the overwhelming support and congratulations from my previous, current, and future brides, along with my fellow wedding vendors and planners. We truly feel so blessed to have this little guy on the way, and we can’t wait to meet him! Also, thank you all for your patience and understanding for the temporary shop close for my maternity leave, and lastly, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
It's been a while since my last post, but I have been busy painting aisle runners and being PREGNANT! My husband and I are expecting our first baby here due January 22, 2012. We are SO excited and have been spending the last couple of months trying to get the ball rolling on preparing for the arrival of our baby! Here are the aisle runners that I have been working on though...

Dusty contacted me already having his own monogram, but wanted to see what Monogram B-2 would look like with their names, date, and colors. They wanted the date in an elegant font to match their names, and they ended up deciding to use my monogram instead for their runner! The monogram is in all black on an ivory runner, and I love how it turned out. Congratulations, Dusty!
Mindy requested Monogram B-11 in eggplant and black on an ivory runner. I love the flourishes on the B and how it looks with the overall monogram. Congratulations, Mindy!
