Silhouettes at Wedding Reception

I had the pleasure of doing silhouettes at a wedding a couple weekends ago for a lovely bride and groom. Silhouettes work well into a theme whether you want something very simple or elaborate with vintage style. Hand cut silhouettes are always impressive at these events.The guests could hardly believe that a portrait with such strong likeness could be completed before their eyes. As I cut each silhouette, I folded the paper beforehand so that the guests could  have one placed in a large collective book for the bride and groom – the guests each signed their best wish sentiments next to their silhouette. The other was carefully placed inside a custom made wedding program featuring a graphic of the bride’s beautiful gown, which I also hand cut out of white paper to mount on black paper for a reverse effect. The guests were able to take their silhouettes home in this custom made souvenir which was a 5×7″ card. The occasion was a wonderful event that I enjoyed very much.
