Sneak Peek: Ariel & David :: Modern Toile Photography

I know, right?

Ariel & David are adorable. Ariel is a special friend. I know I say that about many of my brides, but it’s because I’m still early in my career. My friends have paid me a great compliment to trust me with their weddings. I will always be grateful for the many ways in which they have facilitated my photography business. Ariel, in particular, has been a creative sounding board. We’ve almost developed a twin speak. She is one of the funniest women I know, and trust me, we share some really funny girlfriends. David is a super solid guy and he makes Ariel incredibly happy.

So, some of you will remember Ariel as the graphic designer of Ursula’s wedding invitations, favor tags and wedding announcements. Non? Need a refresher? Okay Here you go:

She also designed, my other bride, Katrina’s wedding invitation, but I don’t have an image of that. Katrina & Ursula work together, as did Ariel and I and yes, you’re right. It is getting a little incestuous. Anyway. Ariel does FANTASTIC work, as you can see. Her talent and taste earned her an upcoming internship at Martha Stewart’s Whole Living magazine. Needless to say all of Ariel’s many crafty friends have been dying to know what she would design for own wedding invitation. The pressure was high as many of her friends are in the wedding industry. Let it be known that I squealed like a wild banshee when this arrived in the mail.

A & D, you didn’t really think I’d make you wait until Wed, did you? Thanks for being such an amazing couple. You radiate a warmth to which others are drawn. I cannot wait for your wedding. I’ll be practicing my Celine Dion lyrics in case there’s a lull in the reception and you need me to throw down my camera & bust out some power ballads or the French Canadian version of “Whip My Hair.” Just kidding.

Only I’m not.
