Wedding Sneak Peeks + CPS/Travel Card

Bridal Gown

Bridal Shoes


Mac has been working on processing the wedding pictures. Last night he worked on my set, so I begged him to allow me to share a couple with you! SHHHH don't tell the bride and groom! :) So, I selected the bride's gown and shoes to share with you. Isn't that armoir beautiful? We decided to hang the dress inside of it and somehow it ended up a vintage effect. And the shoes....aren't they sharp? I love that the bride went bold and wore fuschia (or raspberry fizz!) shoes. For the most part, her dress covered them, but every now and then we would get a pop of color and that was fabulous! Don't worry, there are plenty more to come. I just can't believe I took these shots! What do you think???




Now, onto my card. The sketch was inspired by CPS and the colors by Travelingmama's challenge. I like the photos better than this card, so I don't have much to say! HA

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by to let me know what you think!

Looks like you've found yourself ANOTHER trade! That armoir is just superb. GORGEOUS. I'd take it home, and put it in the middle of a room and just stare at it. Lol! Beautiful.

Of course your card is great too. :-) Love the buttons.

I wish I had thought to wear Raspberry Fizz shoes on my wedding day! :-) Hmmm... I'll have to remember that for the vow renewal! I LOVE your card this week too! Wow!! So gorgeous! Thanks for playing along! Did you get your vacation plans finalized?
Hugs!

Absolutely Love it!! Great armoire idea!! I love the Rasberry Fizz shoes. For my wedding I was so set on having BLUE shoes. blue is my favorite color and everybody would look at me weird when i talked about it. Then i wore it and they loved it. Then Sara Jessica Parker had those Blue Manolo shoes they everybody was all about it. Whatever i had the blue first. Haha!!

Stunning pictures! My nephew married a darling young woman who wore white flip flops with her beautiful white dress and painted her toenails in sparkle Tiffany Blue (her wedding color). What fun! I'm not a high heel kind of gal, but wore a gorgeous pair when I married my husband. It was a very small, informal wedding and there's not one shot of those heels!

Heather P. said...

Whoa... Those wedding pictures are simply fabulous! And those shoes! Makes me wish I wore heels. :)

Awesome card, Ashley... All the details really make this so fun!

Janelle said...

The card is great, but -- unfortunately -- probably overshadowed by the gorgeous wedding photos. And those SHOES!!! Love 'em! What a fun and unexpected touch for a wedding! I think people are having much more fun with their weddings these days than they did when I got married back in the dark ages (1980).

Beautiful card, Ashley!! But that gorgeous dress hanging in that amazing armoire....wowza!! Absolutely stunning photos!

Nicole said...

OMG, Ashley those pictures are AMAZING. I'm in love with that gown shot. I should have talked to u about doing the pictures for my wedding this August. You should be very proud of yourself they look great and I'm sure the rest of the pictures look just as good or even better

Cindy said...
