Meet the Sweet Couple
Hello, friends! Allow me to introduce you to two special people – Naina and Josh, a fun-loving, adventurous couple from Maryland and Washington, D.C. I had the pleasure of painting a watercolor wedding crest for them to represent their wedding celebration and who they are as a couple. I absolutely love the way it turned out and they were such wonderful people to serve! Below, Naina explains why they chose all the crest details, how they planned to use their crest, and what it was like to work with me! 🙂
What do you love most about your crest?
It’s so beautiful! We love that our crest incorporates various aspects of our personalities and our histories, such as the scales of justice (I am a lawyer) and the staff of Caduceus (Josh is a doctor) (and we’ve both always aspired to have these careers), the Maryland and DC flags (where we both are from), the giraffe and elephant (our favorite animals and those that have meaningful symbolism to us both), and our wedding flowers.
How do you plan on using your crest on your wedding day/years to come?
We’re incorporating our crest into our welcome sign, our welcome baskets, and cookies to be served as part of our dessert spread. We hope to use our crest for many years to come to symbolize our family. When we have kids, it’s something we plan to share with them.
What did you enjoy about working with Alicia (The Welcoming District)?
Alicia is so easy to work with and once we explained our vision for our crest, she made it come to life. Alicia is so responsive and on top of things–we always knew where our project’s progress stood and expectations were clear. And her work is so beautiful! Our families love the crest, as do we!
Thank you so much to Naina and Josh! It was truly an honor to paint this for them and I love the ways they have and will use this for years to come! Are you interested in a custom watercolor crest of your own? Email me, Alicia, at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me here to get started. 🙂
