Something really can be said for fine photography, it makes ‘everyday’ into art…
I love Thomas Slack’s photography because it is just that, ART. Below are all of the best shots from the Junkyard photoshoot I made bouquets for.

I just had to post these new ones Thomas has on his blog, they rock…starring this pretty girl and of course, my bouquets!!!
I just finished working on some monogram options for Vanda (yes, that is the bride’s name AND the name of my favorite orchid). They are having a Thai/Vietnamese infusion wedding and incorporating bamboo and orchids into the decor and motif. Vanda asked that I incorporate orchids into their monogram, so I added some silhouetted ones to the designs. Once Vanda chooses her favorite of the above, I will be painting it on an aisle runner for her wedding next month.
So, I bought this Chuppah for a wedding 2 years ago and only have used it once. I am sure there are some Jewish brides out there in need of one for rent, so I figured I’d blog about it and maybe get some traffic.
For those of you who don’t know what a Chuppah is, it is:
A chuppah (Hebrew: חוּפָּה) (also spelled hupah, chupah, or chuppa – plural: chuppot or chuppahs, Hebrew: חוּפּוֹת) is a canopy traditionally used in Jewish weddings. It consists of a cloth or sheet, sometimes a tallit, stretched or supported over four poles, or sometimes carried by attendants to the ceremony. Achuppah symbolizes the home the couple will build together. Chuppah literally means a canopy or a covering.
Images of it are below…(these photos really do not do it justice but they are all I have!)
