Custom Artwork by Victoria Thompson

This past Christmas I wanted to give my husband a really special gift–not just the usual nice sweater, cool barware, or fun socks but something really different.  My friend from college (I have such talented friends!) is also an incredible artist.  I follow her, Victoria Thompson, on instagram @studio9201 (and you should too), and noticed that she kept posting the most beautiful watercolors.  I emailed her a picture that I really loved from our wedding to see if she MIGHT want to do a watercolor of it and she was SO excited and wanted to help me out with this awesome gift!


This is right after my husband and I were married and the MOMENT we opened the church doors, it started to rain (good luck, okaaaaay).  It’s such a sweet picture of my new husband holding an umbrella over me (since I’m so precious).  This picture was taken by the uber talented Iris Photography.

Vicky was amazing and made a test proof for me to look at and approve before she sent the final copy.  Each proof was incredible and so striking and I needed this for Christmas so the timeline was tight but she made it happen even when she was travelling.  So easy to work with!

Here is the final version, all framed up and pretty!  We had it framed at Michaels in a simple white frame, floating atop a light grey matte and put it in a small corner in our bedroom.  It makes us both so happy to look at and it’s perfect for our bedroom.  Please check out Victoria Thompson if you want one of her custom pieces like I did or even just one of her incredible works of art–isn’t this she amazing?  Thanks Vicky!
