Anything else we should know? Some tips for working with me, it's easier than one might think. A bride, groom, mom, future mother-in-law, maid-of-honor/wedding party (my paintings make a great gift) just need to provide the following items to make the painting as special as possible -
- Photos of the dress
- Wedding/favorite colors
- Names and wedding date
- Important/Personal elements or symbolism to the bride and groom like where they met, got engaged, wedding location, vows, phrases, music lyrics, favorite flowers, favorite place etc.
