Wedding Gift Commissions

We are often asked to create original artwork to be given as wedding gifts. Above are some recently completed gifts from parents to newlyweds and also from bride to groom (and sometimes couples have paintings created for themselves!).

From top: Katie and Andrew commissioned a wedding map together and had a print made to show at their wedding reception.

Carly had a portrait of her wedding venue, the gorgeous Mallard Island Yacht Club, created for a first anniversary gift to her husband Doug.

Kim and Matt also had a map created for their wedding, which they also displayed at their reception.

Lastly, Dana and Chris were married at the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The mother of the bride surprised them with this watercolor of the venue.

Katelyn and Scott's Nautical Wedding Invitation

  Katelyn and Scott first came to us for save the dates last spring. We continued their navy, gold and blush color scheme and nautical theme for their wedding invitations. Scott's company, Hatteras Press provided the printing and awesome anchor die-cut folder.

Katie and Steve's Hibiscus and Magnolia Watercolor Wedding invitations

We are playing catch up posting our summer and fall wedding invitation photos. Here is an original watercolor commissioned for Katie and Steve's wedding, which took place back in September. The artwork shows a mixture of magnolias and hibiscus flowers. Also included is their "Endless Summer" save the date card, which along with the invite showcases their love of the ocean (and Steve's love for  surfing!).
