    Your center pieces look fabulous! I also love the unique kite idea. Our wedding dates are nearby each other. My date is June 11th, 2011 (also in Cancun!) Congrats!

      here were some images I took with my phone from light to dark. For some reason, it looked better on my phone (closer to what I saw for real) than on my other camera, but it's still not as good of quality as my other camera. Hopefully this helps.

                    Very romantic centerpiece and the red really pops in your b&w engagement photos. very creative and unique.

I bought these submersible floralytes (they have new double bulbed ones that are very bright, if you are using dark petals like I am). I plan on getting slightly taller vases and putting one of each one table, with sand and seashells around them (seashells from the dollar store and sand from Dreams' beach...lol). Voila! My red centerpieces!

                      Also, I wanted something unique for my engagement photos. I decided to take a leaf out of Lexibride's book (her thank you parasol) and apply her technique to my Kite. I printed the font I wanted very big, and then taped it under the kite. I used a red kite and a white Deco Art paint pen in bold and traced the paint over the letters. Kinda stinks because I could only find single pens in fine, and I thought bold was easier to use. But bold only comes in a pack of 5 or 6 colors for $17 at Michael's. But I'm sure they are cheaper on ebay (mine was last minute). We did our shoot in Cancun, so it was very hot and the paint started chipping off (but that could have been due to packing and handling too) so I brought the paint pen with for touch ups). I think I got my kite at Kites R Us for $9.99

                      I am so glad that I could help you out!
                      I worked hard on my Center Pieces and it sucked not seeing them all lit up.
                      Yours look beautiful! :)
