This artwork was an order for a First anniversary gift, taken from this couple's beautiful wedding photo.

The bride was drawn with her first name: LAURA
The groom was drawn with his name: TJ
Calligraphy, centered beneath was written in Edwardian Script of their names and wedding date.



This was ordered for a wedding gift to be given right after this couple's wedding, taken from this couple's gorgeous photo.

The groom was drawn with his first name: BRIAN
The bride was drawn with her first name: CHELSEA
Calligraphy, centered beneath was written in Edwardian Script of their names and wedding date.


This tree was for the guests to leave their fingerprint on and sign at a reception given for this couple, after coming back from their wonderful destination wedding. The guests used three color ink pads for the leaves...burgundy, green and brown. and then each guest wrote their names by their fingerprint. The groom put his fingerprint in the little groom bird and the bride put her fingerprint in the little bride bird.

The tree was drawn with their last name: HUFFMAN
Written in calligraphy, centered beneath the tree, was their first names and their wedding date. It was written in a lettering called: Bodoni Swash
