Wedding seasons has a certain magic about it. There’s a feeling in the air that you can’t escape. Maybe it’s spring and you can feel the world combing back to life, or in the fall when everything is changing and the colors dance around you like your friends on the wedding dance floor. Whatever it is, magic seems to build when many are gathered to celebrate love. The thing we’re all looking for and hopefully are lucky enough to find in another.
I’ve never been a fan of wedding registries or gift lists of any kind. It takes the intention out of the gift giving. To think long and hard about the person you are giving to and to come up with a new idea that maybe they wouldn’t even think to consider themselves. It’s why I love creating custom wedding illustrations as a gift. To capture a couple on their wedding day in a format that makes it feel like a fairy tale. After all, all our favorite stories start as children’s books.
Illustration gives a certain playfulness to an image. A canvas where anything is possible because there are no rules when it comes to this format. It takes away all the distractions to showcase the thing that we’re all there to celebrate, a love so big, it has to be shared.
These custom wedding illustrations work great as a belated wedding gift or even a 1st year anniversary present to remember that special day. It’s a gift that is bathed in intention, and will create a special memory for your loved ones for years to come. You can even add to the collection including custom illustrations of the family as they evolve over time (potentially adding little ones to their family illustration).
Whether you’re looking to give something they never saw coming, to give with intention, or to give your own gift of magic, a custom wedding illustration is the perfect gift for the wedding season.
