Custom Wedding invitation

Recently these two love birds got married and I was able to make their wedding invitations a little more personalized that the typical invitation. I used photographs of them to work from in their wedding attire and painted them separately in their oval frames.

I love how they turned out on the wedding invitations! I just think it is such a unique idea and the watercolor sketches really make them lighthearted and fun!

They even used them for the cake toppers!  I love it when things are repurposed for different uses like this.

I used the original painting that I did for the commission as a gift to the lovely couple.  I also included the addition of a portion of a bible verse and their wedding date.  It was such an honor to be part of their special day in this small way!

What makes these paintings so special?  Flowers are such an integral part of your wedding, but after the wedding the flowers die and most of us throw them away.  That's why preserving your bouquet is so important and really makes a lovely gift for yourself or someone else.  Here is where you can find out more and place your order for one today... 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Custom Bridal Fashion Illustrations

This week I had the wonderful privilege of capturing a lovely bride on paper.  Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and I love memorializing that day by capturing the beauty of the bride in all her glory.  

Meagan is wearing a gorgeous Vera Wang bridal gown where the bow is competing with her to be the star of the show!

I will never forget the larger than life balloons that she and her new husband carried.  They were awesome and I loved being able to incorporate them into this piece.  

My favorite thing about this photo is the wind blowing the balloons and her veil all around!  I love the joy in their faces and I couldn't help but smile when I worked on this piece.  I am now taking orders for custom bridal fashion illustrations. Email me at taratories@gmail.com today if you are interested in having a custom illustration done of you or someone else and memorializing the best day of your life!
