Our Endless Love

Mia Bridal Couture's "Favorite Things" Giveaway has come to a close (lucky winner Mrs. Casey Priske Miller!). But our passion for Illustrative Moments knows no end!

After thirteen years of working side-by-side with luxe wedding gown designers, such as Amsale and Vera Wang, talented designer and fashion artist Deborah Griffin took a step back from the bridal industry.

However, her friends could not forget the years she spent sketching for clients, runway collections and magazines. They continued to clamour for her sketching talents, and from their persistence the idea of Illustrative Moments was born and extended to all blushing brides.

"Brides are always looking for something new and modern, whether it be the dress, the venue or even a new way to keep memories alive," says Deborah.

 Every illustration Deborah creates is truly a piece of art.

She begins with numerous photos of the bride in her gown. Then final pose is selected by considering what is most flattering to the silhouette and what best captures the special details of the overall look.

The illustration is created on Bristol board using artist ink, colored pencils and markers accented in metallic. Single poses are $175 and go to $200 for a front and back view of the gown.

My favorite part? The traditional first anniversary gift is paper! So not only is this a most perfect shower or wedding gift, but I can't think of anything sweeter to receive on your one year wedding anniversary.

My second favorite part? All Mia brides receive a discount on their custom sketch from Illustrative Moments when they purchase their gown.
 Fall in love with Deborah's amazing work at www.illustrativemoments.com . May we also suggest sharing this link with the husband-to-be? A little help with anniversary gifts is always appreciated!
