Wedding Illustrations

Imagine a live artist; painting your beautiful wedding; creating a lasting impression of the most important day of your life; on paper as it takes place! Move over photography & video, make a little room for some ink and paint. San Fransisco based artist, Wendy MacNaughton, who is best known for her ink and watercolor drawings of commuters and mental maps of the cities neighborhoods, has recently dipped her paint brush in the magical world of weddings. Her original painted drawings  are the perfect touch of whimsical for your big day. Last month, she was commissioned by a mother of the bride, who wished to give her daughter something extra special on her wedding day. How precious is that? The ceremony was a small, intimate affair, held at the brides home among 20 guests. Wendy was there, ink and pen on hand to draw the ceremony, then rushed ahead to the reception location where a grand celebration took place with 250 guests. She then painted the ceremony drawing, framed it and had it on display as the guests arrived so they could see what happened an hour before.
Yowza! That's what I call a quick turn around and how lovely to have something so special to greet the guests.

During the cocktail hour, she painted the guests and all the delightful little details, lighting, flowers, cake etc

And while the guests enjoyed their dinner, Wendy went to work, painted the ink drawings, mounted them to a board and placed them on display for all to see making a creative addition to the wedding decor. Um, AH-mazing, right?
If you're a bride to be in the Bay area and on the hunt for a little something extra for your special day, ya might wanna add Wendy to your list....
