Weddings can be wonderful, white like snow, or pure like a sacred heart.
They can also be stressful.
Most people are on a budget.
One of the most reasonable and unique ideas is to have a REAL silhouette artist at your wedding.
Cindi Harwood Rose, is that rare find! She does the lost heirloom art of cutting portraits from
thin paper in miniature. At weddings she often does two to them, one for each guest and one
for the guest book. We had the pleasure in New York City to have Cindi at our wedding, after
we watched her do silhouettes in Austin, Texas! She is so detailed, and spot-on! Plus,
she made us all feel special at the same time, keeping a perky, nice personality.
Some how she did all 150 of our guests in the 4 hour time we hired her.
For fun, we made other cute silhouette logos-- on mugs, and swoozies. I was able
to hire her from her SilhouettesbyCindiFacebook. It is a great idea. Say, "I do",
say "yes", and say, "here comes the bride, groom, and all the happy guests!"
Silhouete artist Cindi Rose happened upon the art of silhouette cutting freehand, while drawing portraits for a Disney art company. She saw a unique hand-profile cutting artist and did not think his skills were as expert as they could be. The teen took to his surgical scissors and tiny, thin, paper and gave it a try. The park manager was so impressed, teen-aged Cindi was offered the spot as the "official silhouette artist!" At that time, nearly 40 years ago, there were only 13 silhouette artists known in the world. Today, there are 38 to 58 of which Cindi Harwood Rose is recognized as the leading and best silhouette artist. Her name is featured in The Guild of Papercutters and Wikipedia, and she holds the world-record in speed. The history of silhouettes (last example which is not Cindi's work) comes from the Victorian era. Harwood Rose is popular at business conventions, holiday parties, children's stores, schools, and silhouette fund-raisers and especially at weddings. She works in New York City, Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, and Aspen. Cindi often works around the USA for Presidential homes and to give speeches on the history of silhouette art. Her work in speed and accuracy is unmatched. She also donates her time to children's hospitals to make the children feel happy, and to give the family a gift. For more information see http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com of the
