Portrait of a Dress: Artist Kristina Bailey was asked by a friend to paint his bride’s wedding dress as an anniversary gift. This sparked the idea to make portraits of wedding dresses, capturing the exquisite details and sumptuous fabrics. You absolutely loved your wedding dress. It was pretty enough for a painting! With Portrait of a Dress, you can go back to that day, and evoke the beauty and ease you felt wearing your gown whenever you want!
Wedding Portrait: You’ve finally received your wedding photos. Clicking through each image, you are immediately brought back to the happiest day of your life so far. You love them all, but there’s a particular photo of you and the hubs that makes your heart sing every time you look at it. Artist Jessica Marie Peddicord will take your favorite wedding photo and render it as a custom watercolor illustration. Beautifully depicted, Lisa Marie’s wedding portraits are sincere reflections of a couple’s personality and sentiment.
Wedding Bouquet Painting: The flowers a bride chooses to carry down the aisle are an expression of her individuality and style. Bridal blooms are important and meaningful – we are not just saying this because we are in the business. Just ask Megan Carty, a Boston-based artist who makes bespoke paintings inspired by wedding bouquets. We love Megan’s expressive, fluid style and how her depictions reveal a blossom’s inner essence. Stimulating treasured memories from a special day, these vibrant images are wonderful enhancements to home décor.
Retro Wedding Art Print: Chicago based artist Alexander Doll makes retro-inspired fine art prints commemorating your wedding day. His Mr. & Mrs. Alexander Wedding Collection brings to mind vintage liquor advertisements and movie posters. Couples can pick from an array of custom options like location, hair color, design color, and text to create a work of art that is modern, chic, and looks great anywhere in the home.
Intersection of Love Print: Your love story is still unfolding. But right now, the most important moments are when you first met and your wedding day. Memorialize these special dates in a pop art print by Portland based artist Patricia Carlin. The names of you and your honey intersect on street signs against a vibrant hued background. Printed on canvas, Patricia’s personalized works of art are available in a variety of fun, dazzling colors.
Map of Our Hearts Art: You and your sweetie are from very different parts of the world. And to this day, you still can’t believe your paths crossed! Artist Melissa Schwall makes charming personalized map art that proves when it comes to love, distance is no matter. Cutting out half-hearts from vintage and modern maps of the each partner’s place of origin, Melissa constructs a heart-shaped world symbolizing a couple’s union.
