Cristina & Alfonso Suarez April 10, 2010

Cristina was such a pleasure to work with on her wedding flower bouquet painting. She knew exactly what she wanted to capture from her wedding. She chose a 18 x 24 inch canvas. Her flowers were green and white orchids, stephanotis and white roses
The ferns in the painting and the color green are exactly like the ones in their wedding invitation. I thought that the quote was so nice that I included that at the bottom of the painting.

Cristina wanted me to include the crystals from the handle of her bouquet which I used to set off the centers of the stephanotis and to add a crystal flower between the quote.
The bride also wanted some of the lace from her wedding gown in the painting. I chose to set it around the outside edge as an added touch.
