Surrounded by Artists

At our wedding we asked our close friends who are artists to gift us their art to display at the wedding. I was overwhelmed by the quality of the work we were honored to receive. These were the best gifts I could have wished for because they were made for us and displayed at our wedding and now they live on our walls. We are so lucky.
Jessie, my bridesmaid and the girl responsible for putting Asher and I in the same place, lives in Brooklyn and is an amateur photographer. She sent us several bad ass pictures of buildings, trains and graffiti.

Dan works at the Pike Place Market in Seattle and he made us this huge canvas that is completely his style. He has contributed greatly to Asher's success in the Seattle art scene and this winter Asher will be selling with him at the world renowned market.
MA made this painting for us based on our engagement pictures on the Save the Date card. It is gorgeous and he framed it in the coolest blue frame. He has also been instrumental in setting Asher up with art showings and his girlfriend, Nicole is wonderful.

Then of course, Asher and I made art for each table. So fun but so much work!

How can we ever thank our peeps for this amazing art?

This is such a beautiful and unique idea to showcase the talent of your friends while celebrating such a wonderful occasion. And by the way, thanks for sharing your "love letter" story.
