From the Studio: Wedding Certificate

copyright courtney khail stationery and design

I can't show the show the whole certificate (I promised my clients,) but I did want to show a close up of the hydrangea design I painted for them. They wanted to stick with greens and purples, so I had fun alternating between the two, combining colors, and letting the paint just kind of flow. I love when my clients give me a lot of freedom because amazing things can happen. Plus, I'm so type A that I refuse to let anything less than absolutely perfect leave the studio so it's kind of a win-win for all involved. Isn't this pretty, though? I really enjoy how vibrant and modern it became.

And I know you can't see them, but they wrote their own vows and the emotion behind them brought me to tears. There is something so amazing and humbling about being able to share in such a personal moment. There I was, inking in the words they were going to exchange before entering into marriage. The words that promised they would stand by each other, support each other, and love each other always. I couldn't help but feel so lucky to be able to be apart of that and so overjoyed that these two people found each other.

I'm also the person who has to hold back tears at weddings. I can't help it. The moment the couple looks at each other and starts vowing to be a team my eyes just fill up.
