Wedding Art

Jessie and Doug received yet another beautiful wedding gift on Christmas Day:
 A painting of their wedding begun on-site by artisit Nancy Perotti.  We were so pleased with what she chose to paint and how wonderfully they turned out; what a treasure.
 Jessie and Doug really love art, in fact they first met in a high school art class, so they really appreciate this.

 Lighting their candle in prayer is a great reminder of the spirtitual significance of their marriage.
  I love how Nancy captured the details of pansies down the aisle and the hanging vases of flowers in trees.
In the shadows we can see Erika and Jessie's new sis, Sondra.

Nancy surprised us with another painting of the parade of children.
When I asked Nancy about the concept of painting on site during a ceremony she was excited about the idea, and agreed to do that for us.  The dampness in the air that day made it difficult to do, but she certainly didn't disappoint us.  She finished her work from photos she took while there and the end result was beyond what I imagined.  It meant a lot to me that she was willing to do that, and the best part is that Jessie and Doug will always have a piece of art to remember their wedding day.
