Wedding Portraits

Some couples want to show the moment it all started with a custom proposal drawing. A wedding invitation artist who specializes in drawn portraits can easily do an illustration of the moment of your engagement. We’ll talk to you about the setting and what you want to capture about your moment, as well as the style of drawing such as a watercolor, painting, sketch, cartoon, or other artist style. The couple below had their proposal in an antique library setting. This realistic drawing captures the very moment of the “I do!” in their favorite spot.

This coupe became engaged while on a canoe ride together. This custom drawing shows their sporty proposal, along with their engagement date and favorite flowers.

This couple wanted to show their proposal, but the custom portrait is also of their beloved dogs! This was a great way to bring their pets into the commemoration of their engagement with a cute dog proposal drawing.

Custom Wedding Illustrations

Sometimes the couple would like to show the wedding venue location in a painting or drawing, and use it in their wedding invitations. For example, a wedding might be taking place in a particularly beautiful or historic location, that can become part of the artwork for the wedding invitations. This invitation includes a watercolor sketch of the Church Pieve di San Felice in San Felice, Italy. The custom liner includes the pattern of the tiles being used as table decorations at the wedding reception.

The illustration might also be of something that is special to the couple.

Custom Crests and Monograms

We are also able to design a custom crest or monogram for your wedding invitations and items. The crest can go on items for your wedding day such as napkins, menus, and programs.

A traditional wedding invitation often features a vintage antique monogram, such as this “MJ” or “JM” monogram. The monogram can be used on your save the dates, wedding invitations, or other personal items like notecards and thank you cards. We can do a monogram with any initials to fit your needs.
