Lately I’ve been so incredibly immersed in wedding planning! While at first I found the whole process to be entirely overwhelming, time has given me the chance to willingly tackle the challenge and over the past couple of months I have really, truly been enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime planning experience.
Food, music, flowers and pretty dresses… seriously, so much fun!
With the majority of my brain focused on planning the perfectly romantic, elegant day, it’s not surprising that the wedding genre has found its way into my artwork.

In the midst of all the wedding planning, I keep finding myself coming back to the dress, the flowers and all the girly things you would expect a 23-year-old artist to come back to.
While my fiancé and I have been focusing on nailing down all of the large commitments first, it’s been all too fun for me to browse through image after image of flower bouquets, table settings and flower-inspired fashion – all of which remind me of one of my most recent drawings.
Ever since I started drawing with the Premier-grade Prismacolor pencils, I’ve been particularly attracted to hair. I thought it would be fun to do a drawing featuring a hairstyle, excluding the face and featuring a whimsical flower crown. To me, this was perfect summer subject matter (and I am, if nothing else, a creature of the seasons).
Even though we are planning a fall wedding, I’m very much still planning on a classic, “magical” vibe and hope to incorporate a lot of flowers into this theme.
And while the wedding planning has been temporarily put on hold due to home-improvement/moving ventures, I’ve still had plenty of time to daydream about the big day and wrap my mind up in flowers and all kinds of pretty things!
Don’t be too surprised if you see much more wedding-inspired artwork from this bride-to-be!
Memorial Day weekend is fast-approaching and Andy and I are on a mission to dress up our home for the (un)official start to summer.
One of the cheapest and most effective ways to dress up your home? Flowers! Bright, beautiful and festive, I absolutely adore flowers. They look great, they smell great, and sometimes, are downright magical.
And what’s more fun than enjoying flowers and plants from the comfort of your home? Shopping for them!
Check out some of the photos I snapped this week on our quest for the perfect floral decor:
