Silhouette Wedding So Sweet!
Nestled in the famous 17 mile drive in lovely Carmel, California the most intimate, special wedding was designed by a secret society event planner extraordinaire, and she researched talent and selected American top silhouette artist, Cindi Harwood Rose, from extensive research on unique wedding ideas. Although, C.H. Rose, lives in Houston, she readily accepts silhouette bookings in New York, California, Colorado, London, or Virginia, as she has family there. The exquisite wedding included catered Italian food, the best wines, an Italian opera singer, a musical trio, abundant flowers, and a scrumptious 5 course dinner. This catered dinner included, hand-made gourmet pizza, lobster, two different steaks, salads, cheeses, and beautiful desserts. Cindi Rose topped the wedding cake with her silhouette art-- lovely cut profiles of a couple looking at one another. Silhouette touches were, placed in romantic locations throughout the lovely grounds and in the interior of the mansion. As usual, silhouette artist, Cindi Rose arrived early to eliminate stress for the wedding planner. This was a small, intimate wedding and the distinguished silhouette artisan not only entertained everyone at the groom's reception, it was a conversation piece. Cindi is a silhouette artist of over 35 years' experience and is from a line of four generations of artists. She had formerly done her art at both Disneyland and Disneyworld, becoming, not only the fastest silhouette artist in amusement park history, and history, but one of the most accurate, and detailed artists. "I really see that everyone is unique as they are," Cindi says. Style is important to this skilled fine artist, and accuracy, no two of her silhouettes ever look the same. Her silhouette art work is not the generic style you may find that does not contain details, or is computer generated or drawn first, then, cut. These are delicate heirlooms and keepsakes! Cindi, a natural born artist, merely looks at you, and does not sketch, she cuts the profile directly out of thin black paper, then mounts it on acid free cardstock, signing each piece. She offers the bride and groom lovely oval picture frames of their silhouettes facing one another, as a wedding gift from the premier artist.
"It was wonderful, to go to Carmel as a working vacation," Cindi admitted. She said her husband, Franklin, played golf at The Inn at Spanish Bay, while she did wedding silhouettes. Cindi did two silhouettes of each guest, and of course, the bride and groom, one for everyone to keep, and one for a guest book signed by each guest for the newlyweds to cherish forever! She brought her own camera and captured a few shots to share with the many who tie the knot for bliss ever after. . . silhouettes by the sea, and by C. H. Rose!
