Well, this year has gone by so super fast. I have a client-printed invitation that was sent to me this summer that I am JUST NOW getting around to photographing! It helps that I have a new camera. Oh well.

This is a custom DIY invitation I designed for Anna and Salim’s bicycle themed wedding at Irish Creek Farm in Lac Ste-Marie. When I met with Anna about this project at Illume Espresso Bar in Westboro, we ended up talking about anything and everything for a very long time! I seem to always get the best clients. Since their wedding was to be in a rural area, with different groups of people staying at different cottages and chalets, we made a pretty detailed custom map for the event. It even shows you where you can find wine, owls, and deer! And it was red and mint – so in this year. I was super happy with it, and Anna and Salim said they got tons of compliments on the set as well! See pictures below for more details.

It’s a Family Affair

So the true reason for all of the silence around here? This guy:

We welcomed this little lady into the world on October 13 of this year – things have been a little hectic since! She is currently snoozing in my Moby Wrap while I type – sweet. We’ll see how long that lasts!

So business is ongoing, but if I am slower than usual with my replies, this is why! Have a happy week, everyone!

Ongoing Busyness

Posted September 17th, 2013 in News by daniellegrace

Wow! Where did the last 7 months go? I apologize to all of my obviously ravenous readers for the long radio silence! Hmmm… how about a quick update?

WedByHand 2013 was a smash success – check out this photo of my new booth!

Six Modern's WedByHand Booth for 2013

My husband and I whipped this together so last minute that some of my samples got stain on them because it was still wet the next day – oops. Anyway, I was really happy with it. And I love the round paper garland – so much – so here is a link for a tutorial!

 

Since then, we’ve been busily beavering away on custom projects and some other stuff for clients all over! We did a farmer’s market themed wedding this summer:

Farmer's Market Themed  Wedding Suite

We also worked on a nautical themed wedding shower invitation:

Nautical Shower Invite - Detail

And many more! I have been loving doing illustrated custom maps. Currently we’re working on a city wedding and a barn wedding in Prince Edward County. It’s been a packed spring and summer! So I do apologize for the lack of updates, but know that it just means we have been working away!

Drop us a line if you are interested in joining the party – we’d love to hear from you.

Look for us at Wed By Hand 2013!

We will be there with samples of past work and new work, ready to meet wedding-planning-couples and friends. We would love to see you there, so we hope you can make it!

I should also mention – happy new year and hope you all had the most lovely holidays! We at 6 Modern Lane had a very relaxing holiday full of food and snow and family. And now we are ready for 2013! Come at us, brides and grooms! Email us with ideas and questions! Look forward to working with you in 2013.

What a… season?

This blog has remained pretty quiet, it’s true. Not because we haven’t been working on exciting projects, but because we have been working on TOO MANY exciting projects! As we said last post – we finally took photos of several portfolio projects and some new work for the portfolio, so stay tuned!

In the mean time – here is a link to a lovely piece that Wedding Bells put together on Shannon & Mat’s wedding this past spring. First Kiss Film’s lovely piece on their wedding was also featured on StyleMePretty Canada, which is pretty exciting! I snagged a photo from the Wedding Bells piece – their photographer Anthony Cava from Photolux did such an amazing job!  See below the menu napkin wraps that we designed for their reception, and the ceremony programs. So classic!


 

 

What a fantastic Ottawa wedding to have been a part of! I’ve got some better photos of their suite in the pipe – so stay tuned! And now back to work!
