Oh how the time flies. I quickly glanced at the last post…July 2011.. I quickly logged in to WordPress so I didn’t have to look at my lack of blogging any more! A lot has been going on in the past six months or so. In August, I moved to Plano, TX, just 15 minutes away but that took a lot of time that I would have normally been blogging! We also had a crazy rush of orders for September – November. Then of course the Holiday season kicks in at full speed. It almost takes the whole month of January to recover from!
We are now on to spring weddings. Summer Weddings and planning for two bridal show events. We had a booth at the McKinney Texas Performing Arts Center at the end of January that was amazing and a real blast. Can’t wait for the other shows in March and April.
Anyway, back to the point of this post!
On August 10th we had a boutonniere worn by actor Arlen Escarpeta at the red carpet premiere of Final Destination 5. He has been on numerous television shows including, NCIS, Law and Order, and Mental. He was also in Friday the 13th. Check out his IMDB page. And on a cool, side note.. Arlen and his beautiful wife were on David Tutera’s show, My Fair Wedding. See, it all comes back to the bridal world in one way or another!
We were so excited that Arlen contacted us for this boutonniere. It was this piece:
This boutonniere was originally created for a Day of the Dead photo shoot back in June with Kio Kreations, Hazelton Photography and Blend Beauty. This boutonniere definitely fit in with the movie, Final Destination 5. It also really tied together the outfit Arlen wore for the premiere.
The Red Carpet Premiere was featured as a live web feed and of course we had to watch. It is a very surreal feeling to have something you created featured in that way.
The movie came out at the end of December. I went and got three copies. One for myself, one for Brenda (the other half of RBK!) and then an extra copy. Arlen was crazy awesome and agreed to sign all three copies and let me offer one up as a giveaway.
