Late last year I was invited to collaborate on an event with top professionals in the wedding and event industry including Natalie Vishny of Swellegant Events and Kellie Migliaccio of FormDecor Furniture Rental.
This event led me to the concept giving couples the ability to have custom artwork created to complement their beautiful furniture rental decor like beautiful ceremony backdrops, lounge area or living room vignettes. Couples can then either rent or purchase the artwork to have in their home as a forever memory of their wedding day.
I’m thrilled that this won the elite ‘Best New Concept’ Trendsetter award by the Association of Bridal Consultants, Orange County (ABC-OC) and featured in the February 2014 issue of Coast Magazine –
From the article: “The idea here is to create original artwork for wedding décor so that the couple can keep the décor forever to enjoy and remember their big day.
Artist and owner Bethany Thomas describes it this way: ‘Giving couples the ability to share their love story at their wedding as décor and forever in their home with textured paintings on canvas created just for them is my passion. For this event, I created two paintings as backdrop pieces. Designed with a graphical look… they incorporate wedding invitation paper and old postcards a couple could collect from their travels. My artwork ties all the elements together – the furniture, lighting, chairs, etc. The couple’s custom artwork can be either rented or purchased.’ ”
Which textured memories do you treasure?
