Why did I start painting watercolor crests?
I have always enjoyed painting and when I was looking for ways to add personalization to wedding welcome gifts, I just knew this was the way to do it! I love the endless creative ways this detail can add personality and thoughtfulness to a couple’s wedding and from a gift designer’s perspective, it can remove the challenging aspect of packaging. Many times the treats we love to give (and receive) are in bold and bright packaging that doesn’t match a wedding aesthetic. A custom crest removes all of that visual clutter when used as the labeling for gift goodies and I absolutely love that!
A wedding crest can also be used throughout the entire wedding planning process from save-the-dates and invitations to day-of details and thank you notes. I am thrilled to help couples create a cohesive looking welcome that represents them as a couple with details that can be cherished forever! Below, you will see a crest I painted for a modern, black and white wedding at Tranquility Farm in Purcellville, VA. It includes the venue and the elegant floral used for the ceremony and reception!
