Although there are lots of ways to include pets in weddings, these wedding illustrations by Megan Hamilton are new to me. In today’s digital world, it is always exciting to see something created by hand like Megan’s portraits.
From Megan: “I create my illustrations in my home studio in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Every illustration is hand-drawn using pen and ink, watercolor, and colored pencil techniques from photos provided by my clients.
Each illustration is unique to the client and often includes something special, like a pet, or items of sentimental value. My illustrations are purchased by newlyweds or brides-to-be, family, wedding guests, bridal parties for showers and wedding anniversaries.
Each custom portrait is more than just art for the wall. Illustrations have been used on thank you cards, photo guestbooks, memory boxes, and hung in dressing closets worldwide.”
While it seems like more wedding venues are pet-friendly, not every pet should attend a wedding. Megan’s illustrations can even include a pet who has crossed the rainbow bridge.
Megan also creates illustrations of Christening gowns, flower girl dresses, etc. Check out her Etsy shop that carries a mix of vintage and handmade bridal accessories in addition to portraits.
