Wedding Planning

Art a la Carte, LLC


"Silhouettes By Blane" began in 1987, drawing mostly children at preschools.  In 1997, "Silhouettes By Blane" has operated under the umbrella name of "Art a la Carte, LLC" (her art enrichment practice as an art educator) to provide silhouette drawing services at special events to include bridal parties, rehearsal dinners and weddings.  

A bride and groom has the opportunity to purchase my services for any or all of the following: Online orders of bridal party members as their special 'thank you' gifts, full or partial silhouettes of the bride and groom (images may be used in stationery and/or as an elegant, classic portrayal of the newlyweds at the reception) and/or as a special celebratory favor for the guests at the wedding reception.  If I were to come to the rehearsal dinner as well, I could draw silhouettes of the family, saving guests to do at the reception.   While I live in Richmond, VA, I am available and willing to travel to provide my unique and professional silhouette portrait service for you and your loved ones to further assist you in your celebration!

"Silhouettes By Blane" will add classic, cultural enrichment to your special day!  Silhouette portraits can be made of any one, of any age, and is oftentimes simply a fun attraction for guests to enjoy watching.  These hand-crafted silhouette portraits make timeless keepsake treasures as favors for your guests, which will be a wonderful way to remember your special day and your valued relationship.

If the couple wish for a pen and ink portrait of their new home, that is something else I can do for them, as well as a pastel portrait of their pet and/or children, if/when they have any! As for the silhouettes, I offer my service at both the rehearsal dinner (to draw the wedding party, immediate family) and again at the rehearsal dinner, to draw the guests.
