A Russian Faerie tale

28 October 2010

Hello my dear blog friends…

Please come with me… back into the realm of the faeries…

I received this very intriguing email today from what must be a Russian music fae…

Dear Tricia !
My nime is Alizbar I play  the harp
my web  is www.alizbar-harp.com
I find  your  wedding with my music

Its very good

Maybe we can do more ? its my work too
Best regards

He has taken the pictures of my faerie wedding and placed them to his music.  I am having trouble uploading his video so after you click here go to the right and under “favorites” click on the video that has this…

picture on it.

I was enchanted beyond words…  I hope you enjoy it!

You can hear the song again and watch him play by going to his web site.   I can see in his eyes how lost he is in the music.  When the song ends he looks around as if he is entering this realm again.  A truly magical man…  I am honored he contacted me..

(If anyone can read Russian fae, I would love to understand the writing on the video.)

Hello Everyone,

I have mentioned a couple of time about how busy my season has been…  well finally I have some pictures to share with you so you don’t think I have just been lounging around on the chaise eating bon bons all summer.

This was a lovely vintage style wedding I had the pleasure of creating a couple of months back.  The couple were just as sweet as the details!

The ceremony was held under the Oak tree at the bride’s family’s home.  We hung lots of whimsical ribbons from the branches.

The guests found their table number by looking for their names on cards clipped onto the “clothes line”.

This is the walk way to the backyard where the reception was held.  We hung lots of pretty ribbons some plain and some with flowers and lots of lanterns and candles.  At night it was lovely!

Some of the hanging posies…  (can you tell were in California by all the citrus?)

The table arrangements were lots of sweet vintage (some actually old and some just vintage in style) containers filled with flowers…

There were lots of fun details, this bouquet was tied to the entrance gate just for fun…

The cake was a flower covered delight!!

The back yard at night…

Some more of the fun hanging bits that were everywhere…

See…  I really have been working,  I will post more weddings and events very soon.  I can’t wait to show you the faerie woodland event I did.  That was crazy fun!!!

All these lovely pictures are from the most talented Katie Moos Photography

By for now…

Wedding Wings

Remember when I wrote a while back about the wings I was making for a lovely bride?  Well I have finally finished them along with a beautiful cloak and wreath to complete her wedding ensemble.

I am so pleased with the results, and I can say that as they are now in the bride’s hands and she seems thrilled too.  I had my friend Nancy Little Moon come over and try everything on for me so I could take a few pictures.  She is so beautiful inside and out.  I just love to have her model for me (she was the high priestess in the faerie wedding photo shoot on my web site). By the way she is also a wedding officiant who preforms the most beautiful and meaning full ceremonies. You can visit her web site Blessings in Paradise.com for more info.

I split the cloak up the back so it flows around the wings.  The wings are on a padded metal brace that slides between the skin and the corset.  They are remarkably light weight for being so large.

I used a vintage Indian Sari and then glued to the edges moss, beads, jewels, bugs and all manor of magical things

My bride wanted it to evoke not just faeries but mermaids as well so I gave it a bit of a fish tale look.

What a magical way to start a marriage!

SB Magazine

Yeeeaaaa!!!  My faerie shoot made it into Santa Barbara Magazine.  Seriously happy over here!!  Have a look, they interviewed me and the result was a fairly long article!  Instead of using it as a wedding as I intended they chose to show it as an over-the-top party.  Either way would be very fun!  As you can tell I am over-the-moon about it.  Check it out and enjoy…   I surly am!!!

The cover shot on the left also by Elizabeth Messina, the lovely lady who shot the faeries!!!
