Purple Passion: Kathy & Elliott Goodman 8.5.11

Married on August 5th, 2011, Maria Miller, Director of Catering at The Hills Hotel, wanted to give Kathy and Elliott their custom painting as a surprise just before the ceremony to use as decor on their guestbook table. I can’t believe how lucky I was to be able to give it to Kathy personally – a dream come true for me!

Getting Ready for the Ceremony

Maria reuested I capture the beautiful features of the hotel’s newly remodeled Crystal Ballroom and it’s key decor elements and colors of Kathy and Elliott’s dream wedding. Kathy fell in love with the venue –  the purples, chandeliers and picture frame decor. All the of the photos were provided about 6 weeks prior to their wedding…

Ballroom decor elements

Kathy’s dress was flowy with unique accents like rows of ‘feather’s and a twisted ruched sweetheart neckline.

With all these elements in mind, here is the end result:

12″x12″ Mixed-Media on Canvas – 38 Textured Layers

Can you feel the feathers?

‘G’ is for the Goodman’s!

Kathy and Elliott have their whole life ahead of them. Thanks to The Hills Hotel, they will have a keepsake from their wedding that will last their lifetime that they can pass on to their children some day to remember their parents’ special day.
