Comic Book Wedding

Two friends of mine tied the knot this month on the 12th.  They had a comic book themed wedding.  It was a lot of fun :)  Also, I was lucky enough to be a part in a small way.  They had asked me if I could make the necklaces for the bridesmaids.  I was thrilled!  So excited, and when they told me what they were looking for, I was even more excited.  I started thinking things out, and as time got closer to the wedding, the idea evolved even further.  They had been discussing the boutonnieres for the groomsmen, and it hit them that it would be cool to do the same thing for them as the bridesmaids, but as pins instead.  Plus, special pins for themselves.  Well, I was completely geeked.  Custom work is fun, but especially when someone has adventurous big ideas.  :D

After a few weeks of work they were finished and ready.  I was pretty pleased with how they all turned out.  :)  They looked just as I had pictured them finished, and when each pair walked down the aisle, a tear came to my eye.  I'm sure some would also say, "Lots of people cry at weddings...", but 1. I wasn't crying, my eyes just welled up a little ;)  (my mascara wasn't waterproof and I forgot tissues, no crying allowed. I refuse to have raccoon eyes) and 2. Yeah, I was happy to see my creations, and I was happy to see my friends get married.  :)  Lol, so both.  Go with me on this. 

I waited to post these pictures because they were a surprise for the wedding party.  :)  Here they are though now, in all their awesomeness.
