Custom Watercolor Crest Featuring Tranquility Farm

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!

I paint each element separately so details are not missed. Here you can see what my Tranquility Farm painting looks like by itself. This would make a lovely notecard, label, envelope liner, or save-the-date!

How fun would it be to tote your crest around at the farmer’s market? And what a thoughtful memento for each guest to receive the crest as a welcome note! The welcome notes were captured by my friend, Cait Kramer Photography.
