Wedding Signs

Isn't this just a beautiful photo!

I was contacted by a local bride-to-be after she saw an online ad for my wedding signs.  She had some ideas in mind and said there were signs she saw online elsewhere and that she would like some made similar to those.  Imagine my surprise when, of all the blogs and online creative people, she chose signs made by Gail at My Repurposed Life!   Not only are the bride and myself in Northern Ontario, but Gail is my online friend and lives a long way away in Kentucky.

I contacted Gail asking her if it was okay to copy her and she graciously said to go ahead and make them and then she even supplied me with the font name.  Gail is the absolute best, thanks Gail! xoxo

So, Sarah decided on the wording for her signs which I made out of old barn boards and hand painted.


She also wanted a Bride and Groom sign for the backs of their chairs:

I am so happy to work with brides, they appreciate having something made just as they have pictured in their minds.  Brides have been so friendly to me, I work through emails back and forth with them figuring out sizes, fonts, wood types, etc. and they always are happy to see their signs come to life.

I provided Sarah with a little extra sign and was surprised to see in the wedding photos that it had even appeared at the reception

Thanks so much to  Sarah (and Darryl) for choosing me to make these special signs for their big day and to Tanya and Sean at Expressions Photography in North Bay, ON for sharing these photos with me so that I could show them to my blog readers.

Perhaps I can make a sign for you?  See more wedding signs at my website here.
