Getting married two days after Christmas just sounds like the greatest idea doesn't it? (And I'm being completely serious). Two of my sweet friends-turned-clients tied the knot just before December came to a close. Their wedding was a winter wonderland of deep reds and rich emeralds with modern touches of pink and blush. It was seriously a dream!

I was so happy to work with the bride to custom paint this invite suite. Tori's main inspiration points were the flowers she knew she was going to carry down the aisle. She asked me if we could custom paint them to set the tone for the guests the minute they received their invitation, and of course I agreed! We also did custom calligraphy for the names and other pieces of the suite. The color palette flowed naturally from there, keeping the emphasis on the paintings and using only a pale blush background to help them pop.

I swiped a photo of the stunning bride and her bouquet, which did end up resembling the painting we did quite a bit! This whole wedding was featured on Trendy Bride Magazine in 2016. I was so glad Tori and Alex asked me to be a part of their magic.

Congratulations to the happy couple - much love and blessings!
