I realized in my efforts to surprise you with the Valentine Bride, I failed to share a post with the visuals I used for the characters.
Without further ado…
Dylan Bruno was the perfect hunky hottie for Carson’s character. From the story, we know Carson is brawny, sweet, caring, and somewhat clueless when it comes to manipulative women.
But he’s full of boyish charm with a smile that melts Fynlee’s heart.
And it isn’t hard to see how she turned his head.
The character that is turning out to be the star of the show is Miss Matilda “Tillie” Dale – Fynlee’s grandmother.
As soon as I saw a photo of Iris Apfel, I knew she made a perfect Grams. Iris is an American businesswoman, interior designer, and fashion icon who is in her 90s. Isn’t she fun!
The moment I started creating the character of Matilda’s sidekick, Ruth, an image popped into my mind.
Betty White is the perfect Aunt Ruth, and such a great balance to Matilda’s character.
And for those who want to meet Dandy Rand – here he is. Actor Richard Harrison fits his character well.

Did the images fit your vision of the characters?
