Holly & Peter - May 6, 2011

The chargers and centerpieces had a beautiful antique golden look which I used in the green leaves and background of the preserved wedding flower paintings.
This is a sample of the Burgues Script, the font used in the seating chart which you can see in the detail of the stems and vines.
Six 10 x 10 paintings were ordered. Two of them will go to the parents of the bride and groom as a thank you gift.

Holly's bouquet was white peonies and blush and pale peach roses. She looked like such a beautiful China Doll that I wanted a very subtle background for the soft roses.

Holly liked the Burgues Script in their seating chart and requested that being reflected in the paintings.

Shawn's Wedding Flowers Preserved

Shawn and Corey's wedding had both a nautical theme since Corey is in the Coast Guard and a Irish theme with Shawn's only request being Bells of Ireland as part of her bouquet.
The bridesmaids wore champagne dresses with black sashes.
Shawn's shoes were a beautiful shade of teal blue.
So . . . I arched the Bells of Ireland like the arch of swords in their ceremony and used a light metallic champagne background. I added the deep teal vines to mimic her lovely shoes. This painting was done on a 16 x 20 canvas.
