Out of the depths of my sadness of last week, some these special beauties...
The first for my bff's son, for his first prom. Definitely more of an athlete than a "bow tie" guy, this beauty he designed for himself (more blue than green) but still with the outdoors wood duck look.
The middle - a custom trophy blue winged teal for a very special wedding. The lucky couple follows the insta page, and wanted something to compliment her flower choice, the hydrangea (personal favorite of mine as well). Her guy is not a bow tie guy, but agreed to wear one for their special day "if it was one of mine" I could NOT be more honored!!! Can't wait to see their wedding photos, I know the blues and greys in this trophy tie will look fabulous for their special day.
The last, because I can. Because my creative spark wasn't quite finished for the day, and I still had the feathers out on my workbench.
I'm so very lucky to have a talent for creating things for people for special times, and special gifts.
Next up... "I do" x 7. Stay Tuned
Awesome bride, awesome groom, awesome story, and a hurricane...
Robbie contacted me literally about 2 years ago regarding bow ties for his wedding. An avid duck hunter, he wanted to supply all of the feathers for the wedding, hence, trophy ties for all of his groomsmen. What an awesome gift! He collected literally bags and bags of feathers, and when I finally got through sorting them, we decided that all of the ties would be just a bit different, but all would have the underlying theme of the Wood Duck Barred feathers. I also have to say that Kim was the easiest bride I've ever worked with .
Well, long story short, their wedidng was planned for the weekend we just happened to have a little weather visitor named Matthew show up in town, so they had a small wedding in Atlanta. Then had their dream amazingly beautiful wedding hence #idotaketwo on January 14, 2017. Congratulations to you both, looks like a grand time was had by all!
All ties are made by me. One at a time, by hand. If you're interested, please give me a call, or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm happy to discuss your specific needs, and colors and the feathers you have as well. Nothing makes me happier than creating ties for people I know, or I have spoken to! #wadmalawwildties
Both from avid outdoorsman families, Carrie & Sam chose the turkey feather with subtle wood duck overlay. Friends through horses, I was honored to make these ties for them for their special day.

Anyone can show up when you're happy. But the ones who stay by your side when your heart falls apart, they are your true friends. I have this man, we are this family. I am thankful and blessed.
