The Perfect Jackson Wedding:
Spectacular views of the Grand Tetons, a working ranch in the background, personal touches from the bride and groom, a sun filled spring day and even butterflies made this wedding so much fun to paint! Plus, a couple of very sweet kids kept me company while I painted.
I arrived and started painting while some folks were setting up the ceremony site and finalizing details. This gave me the time to really focus on the incredible scenery and to get the ceremony site painted before the guests started to arrive. I wanted the painting ready to add people in!
It was so much fun to paint the beautiful western blankets they put over the hay bales, even though I knew they would be getting sat upon by the guests soon! Other very fun details: the bull skull and photos of family members who couldn't be there on the day.
The Ceremony was so beaufiul and unique, and Allegra looked absolutely stunnin in her beautiful western-lace wedding dress, red scarf and cowboy boots! Miller also looked very handsome with a nice western flair- a bolo tie! At the end of the ceremony, as they walked away as Newlyweds, the crowd released live butterflys to symbolize their blooming love.
This very cute puppy also was there. :)
Allegra and Miller were kind enough to take a second and pose with their finished painting. I *did* forget to get a really good picture of the painting, as it was one of the first ones I did. But, a couple of wedding guests sent me pictures of the couple's dogs, and they got included in the crowd too!
One thing that was really fun was how some of the guests got really excited about the painting, and joined together to figure out a way to put it on display after I finished. They moved it into the reception area.
