Happy Monday, Penny Darlings!
I am back after a fabulous weekend of relaxing and working and being a busy little bee!
But, as everyone who checked out my gown search post (Thank you, Bombshell!) – you know that Preston & I are deep into wedding planning and making the most whimsical thing of all time be a reality!
We are actually getting married at the theatre where we met, had our first kiss, and where he proposed! I am so excited!
But since it’s a more artistic space (and we looked at a few art galleries for our venue!) we wanted to go a little more artistic with our decorations.
So I reached out to a few Insta-friends (who are also AMAZING artists!) to help us with our decorations for the wedding! After receiving some amazing fan art from some amazingly talented artists, I knew that I wanted to have some easels at our wedding to display some of these artists’ renderings of Preston & myself!
So, pleasepleaseplease – support artists! This group is full of AMAZINGLY talented people! I will be linking to their Instagram/Etsy shops/Society6 – so please check them out! (also, these couple portraits are PERFECT for Valentine’s day, just saying!)
This lovely guy has some amazing art & doesn’t mind showing curvy gals in their best light! Check out his Society6 page here!
This gorgeous gal and I met and definitely have bonded over some serious Modcloth love! She based this on a picture of Preston & I at the lake! Check out her website here!
This gorgeous doll did one of my absolute fave of me! So she did this adorable drawing of Preston & I at this fall foliage heaven! E-mail her here for commission questions!
This gorgeous doll did a drawing of me from over the summer (ft. Harvey, theatre masks, & ice cream – my three favorite things!) and she did this awesome ice skating illustration for us! Check out her Society6 page!
This is one of my absolute faves! This gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous drawing is an amazing pic of Preston & I! Shea is an amazing artist with such unique style! Be sure to check out her Etsy page here!
This amazing artist is actually a friend from college, but she went on to be a children’s book illustrator! You need to check out her books, Butts are Everywhere and Llama Destroys the World, for this delightful artist!
The ever-lovely, Claudia, did this AMAZING technicolor drawing of one of my favorite pics of Preston & myself! And my shoes weren’t featured in the shoot, so she improvised and I’m 99.9% sure that those are my dream shoes. Check out her Society6 page here!
That’s all for now, I’m hoping to have a round 2 feature in the spring of more artists! If you are an artist and would like to participate in this, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can definitely chat more about it!
Thank you to all of these amazing artists for sharing their talent for mine & Preston’s big day! Please check out their pages, give them a follow, get an illustration done of you and your loved ones!
