In case you haven’t noticed, Rebecca Sigety and I LOVE working together! We met a few years ago at a charming photoshoot on a private estate in Loudon County, Virginia. She was so welcoming, organized, and just as excited as I was about the sweet Virginia details. Match made in “Hunt Country” Heaven. I digress, The Catesby Estate may in fact be Heaven on Earth. It’s simply breathtaking. Anyway, Rebecca and I (both Anglophiles) have many similar interests: family heraldry, love stories, beautiful details, pretty dresses, the South….the list goes on and on. Since our introduction, we have gotten together for multiple photoshoots and afternoon tea at The Tea Cart in Berryville. Many of the photos on my website were taken by Rebecca and now my artwork is a part of her brand. We are kindred spirits.
Watercolor Crest Logo
Before starting on her crest, I asked Rebecca what was most important to her. We had her color palette down and I knew the flowers that were special to her, but overall the aesthetic had to be “timeless.” With that being said, we ended up sticking with an all floral crest, no icons. The Spanish moss would serve as a gentle nod to Charleston and the rest was pure floral elegance.

I asked Rebecca some questions so you could learn (directly from her) about her brand, crest choices, and what it was like to work with me.
How would you describe your brand and how did that influence you to want a watercolor crest as a logo?
The pillars of my brand are based on 3 words: timeless, elegant and joyful. When thinking of creating a new logo for my business, the idea of a crest always seemed like the perfect fit. It not only matched the pillars of my branding and photography style but seamlessly fit into my southern background and personal style as well.
What do you love most about your crest?
I love each of the unique floral pieces that we incorporated into the crest. Each one is representative of something that I love or has meaning in my personal story. For example – the Spanish moss is representative of our location in Charleston, white hydrangeas were the flowers I had on my own wedding day, while the blue thorn thistle is the national flower of Scotland, where my family is originally from. And pink peonies are my favorite flower and one of the first things that inspired me to pick up a camera many years ago.
Where have you used your crest so far? How do you hope to use it in the future?
I have used my crest everywhere! I am obsessed! It’s the header on my website, the star of my back cover of my wedding and engagement guides, on the stationery I use to send notes to my clients, and even on the treat stickers inside of my client gifts. In the future, I’d love to see it on a canvas in my personal office and incorporated more across the items I use to represent my business.
Working with The Welcoming District
Alicia is an absolute joy to work with. She is responsive, flexible and so incredibly creative. I changed my mind about 20 times during our crest creation process and her patience and willingness to keep adapting to what I wanted was so helpful in determining the final product! I also am so inspired by her attention to detail and the love she puts into her work and artistry!
Thank you to my dear friend, Rebecca, and to you for stopping by and learning a little about Rebecca Sigety Photography and her custom watercolor crest logo! It was so nice to have you here!
