This past spring I had the pleasure of working with Wedding Chicks + Etsy Wedding Divas Giveaway winner, Natalia. This lucky bride won over $1300 in prizes, including a custom bridal illustration by yours truly! Natalia opted to display the illustration in lieu of a traditional photograph bridal portrait at her wedding reception. She was having her mother's lovely wedding dress customized, and her favorite part of the dress was the dramatic view of the back of the dress. Since no official wedding photos existed yet, we worked with snapshots of the bride in the unfinished gown as she held snippets of lace where it would soon be applied to the dress, along with shots from her hair trial, accessories, and descriptions of her intended bouquet.
