A Russian Faerie tale

Hello my dear blog friends...

Please come with me... back into the realm of the faeries...

I received this very intriguing email today from what must be a Russian music fae...

Dear Tricia !
My nime is Alizbar I play  the harp
my web  is
I find  your  wedding with my music

Its very good

Maybe we can do more ? its my work too
Best regards

He has taken the pictures of my faerie wedding and placed them to his music.  I am having trouble uploading his video so after you click here go to the right and under "favorites" click on the video that has this...

picture on it.

I was enchanted beyond words...  I hope you enjoy it!

You can hear the song again and watch him play by going to his web site.   I can see in his eyes how lost he is in the music.  When the song ends he looks around as if he is entering this realm again.  A truly magical man...  I am honored he contacted me..

(If anyone can read Russian fae, I would love to understand the writing on the video.)

Sweetly Vintage

Hello Everyone,

I have mentioned a couple of time about how busy my season has been...  well finally I have some pictures to share with you so you don't think I have just been lounging around on the chaise eating bon bons all summer.

This was a lovely vintage style wedding I had the pleasure of creating a couple of months back.  The couple were just as sweet as the details!

The ceremony was held under the Oak tree at the bride's family's home.  We hung lots of whimsical ribbons from the branches.

The guests found their table number by looking for their names on cards clipped onto the "clothes line".

This is the walk way to the backyard where the reception was held.  We hung lots of pretty ribbons some plain and some with flowers and lots of lanterns and candles.  At night it was lovely!

Some of the hanging posies...  (can you tell were in California by all the citrus?)

The table arrangements were lots of sweet vintage (some actually old and some just vintage in style) containers filled with flowers...

There were lots of fun details, this bouquet was tied to the entrance gate just for fun...

The cake was a flower covered delight!!

The back yard at night...

Some more of the fun hanging bits that were everywhere...

See...  I really have been working,  I will post more weddings and events very soon.  I can't wait to show you the faerie woodland event I did.  That was crazy fun!!!

All these lovely pictures are from the most talented Katie Moos Photography

By for now...

It was a Great Pumpkin Wedding...

Hello all my witchy friends...

Sorry to have flown off on my broom for so long... tis not only the witching season but the wedding season as well!!

Now some might get those two confused and I am sure that there are many that cross the line but alas I am fortunate to have only come across one bad witch-bride in amongst 12 years of wonderful Glenda-the-good-witch brides!  I shall save her story for another time.  Truly a dark and stormy night is needed!

I wanted so much to be a part of Vanessa's Fanciful Twist Halloween blog party, cooking up lots of magical brews and potions, or creating some mystical witches den.

I so love Vanessa's magical ways and her beautiful blog... to be a part of her lovely party would have been a joy but alas the ladies in the white dresses come first!

So on that note I want to share with all of you pumpkin-loving-witches and magical-muggles (not a oxymoron I assure you) a supercalifragilisticexpeallidotious wedding that I got to be a part of a few years ago.

This bride LOVED pumpkins, I think even more than Vanessa over at Fanciful Twist!

To get ready for the wedding we met her and her family at a pumpkin patch and between her family's trucks our delivery vans and trailers we hauled away over 2000 pounds of pumpkins!!!!

My husband still gets shaky when he sees a pumpkin...  he's afraid I will ask him to haul it somewhere and back again.

There were mini piles all over...

On the tables as name markers...

Tiny glittered ones as party favors...

A larger buff colored one we turned into the ring bearer's fanciful treasure chest...

They were all over the tables as general decor...

And not only did my fabulistic-fall femme like pumpkins she LOVED halloween candy (is this a woman after our haunted hearts or what!).  So of course I filled tall vases with candy corn and stuck branches in them!

She had a desert buffet laid out with pies and cakes and tons of all the most wonderful childhood-memory-inducing Halloween candy.  It was a spread that would have caused any dentist to retire early!  In addition they had a most beautiful chocolate wedding cake.

Her bouquet was filled with...  but of coarse... CHOCOLATE Cosmos (and Lilly-of-the-Valley).  They really do smell like chocolate!

What with all the Halloween/pumpkin/candy/ and delectable treats blog posts out there I thought I would share one of my all time favorite weddings that so fit the season.  Hope you enjoyed it!

Party on my Pumpkin Pals!
