Happy Valentine’s Day from The Delicate Pen! Here are a few images to get you in the spirit!

My favorite postcard from my vintage collection. A cherub with her “Delicate Pen.”

Some wonderfully creative lettering.  The  image is from my acquaintance on Instagram. @nrichardsen from Norway. @delicatepen thanks you, Nina, for permission to post the photo!

I have been waiting since June to share this photo on a romantic occasion.  While at the LIMA show last June, the Anheuser Busch stately horses clip-clopped in the Mandalay Bay convention center one day, bringing the trade show floor to a magnificent  halt. These two are obviously sweethearts.

Have a wonderful day!

A Delicate Pen Wedding

BY jane, ON Thursday, September 8, 2011

A few weeks ago, I featured the beautiful wedding of a Las Vegas couple, Tawnya and Kiel, who got married in grand style at a mansion.  Last week, I introduced you to Debra and Jack, also from Las Vegas.  They planned a completely different affair, high above the Las Vegas Strip lights. Upon arrival, each guest received a butterfly that they released at the conclusion of the ceremony. Guests whispered a wish to their butterfly as it gently spread its wings and flew away, with the belief that it would wing off to their Master to deliver the wish.

The bride is delighted as the ring bearer’s butterfly alights on her bouquet.

The Delicate Pen provided the invitations and place cards.  I was pleased that the bride allowed me to write all the names on an angle,  one of my favorite ways to write.

The Delicate Pen also designed a Guest Scroll for guests to sign.

FOOTNOTE:

I was in Las Vegas for the Licensing Show shortly after both Vegas weddings, so I invited Tawnya and Debra to dinner at the Vintner Grill so that I could spend a little quality time with two Delicate Pen brides and introduce them to each other.  We dined inside and then “desserted” outside. A good time was had by all!
