The Art of Getting Married

April 26, 2010

Oh, it’s an art alright and Corrine and Andrew proved that with their over the top artistic wedding.  You may remember this couple from their engagement pictures–they are the VW Bus couple!  Over the past couple of months we have had some long conversations about the plans for the wedding.  I knew it would be amazing and unique but until the actual day, I could never imagine how much energy and love these two put into planning their idealized wedding.  The 210 Cafe in Visalia was the venue.  This is a fabulous non-profit coffee house that has that comfy feel that you would find in a Soho cafe in New York City.  After a theatrical (stage lighting) ceremony, the reception featured an art opening with artwork from all of their friends (and some of their own pieces were included as well).  The gorgeous flower arrangements were designed by a friend as an art contribution and….one of my favorite cake toppers ever…the two quilted love birds were also made by a friend.  Seriously, they have great friends.  Andrew, a potter, made a ceramic bowl for each of the guests as a thank you gift…yep, and I got two!  Corrine, a portrait painter and print maker, made the linocut invitations.  So we had some fun with the bride/groom photo shoot (my art contribution…yes).  The couple met in Visalia when they were in high school so it seemed fitting to utilize the downtown iconic sites.  Corrine and Andrew are beautiful, artistic people that give me hope in this young generation to perpetuate the arts.  I am happy to call them my friends.
