Wedding Collaboration

Surely a bonding experience is to collaborate with your daughter/bride to be on the printed materials for her wedding. The location was a place that is very near and dear to our family. I vacationed here with my family from the early 1970’s and when we all had our own families we continued the tradition with our parents. Almost 50 years of summer memories. I provided the raw material and she created the magic with Adobe Illustrator and her amazing design skills.

Additionally, I created prints with antique lace that had been worn by my mother, aunt and myself at our weddings and was subsequently worn by my daughter.

And finally, I am working fast to preserve the quickly fading wedding flowers

All this shows that even in the midst of planning a big event I still managed to seek ways to be creative and carve out experiences that satisfy my artistic yearnings. BUT it also highlights to me that it’s time to refocus! Happy Fall!

One thought on “Wedding Collaboration

  1. Jen Love your photos! ❤️❤️ And the cyanotypes!! Remember walking that road with you when I visited you.

    Maybe you can exhibit at the Worcester pop up gallery where Cale will be having a show. Its for 2wks and we will be having an opening Wednesday Oct 12 4-8 that will also be a gathering of friends leaving a story of their memories of Cale. But i think you can stop by anytime those 2 weeks and look at the space. Its around the corner from the prestigious Hanover Theater . Google JMAC pop up gallery let me know if you can’t find it.

    I also think you should apply to my friends gallery in…? Near boston. I am blanking on the town right now. I think it was called The Bridge. It deals exclusively with photography. We should take a trip to see it

    Hope to see you perhaps in Dec. in NoHo for next eye exam. Missed you this time around this last week – son James drove me as he was here this week helping me deal with all details there is with Cales passing.

    Keeping me so busy right now. So many of his hundreds of close friends have reached out on Facebook and with texts to tell me their stories and connections To him and how devastated they were. Even the men telling me of his kindness to them and how they could not stop crying. He had touched soooo many more people than I realized.

    With my four closest support pillars moved on I am floating with a sore but open heart to see where this path God has for me will lead to.

    Right now it looks like your long road 😳😊 Elaine

    Keep up the good work. ❤️
