An English Garden, Bulgarian vows, and a beloved cat.

An English Garden, Bulgarian vows, and a beloved cat.

Often, after hours of talking with a couple, I receive a surprising ‘wish list’ of what to finesse into a lovely document.  And this is a delightful example of that process.  It happens that I’ve had a long relationship with the bride’s family, so it was a particular joy to dive in.  Family traditions from both the bride’s and groom’s side brought us to an English garden, a text in Bulgarian, and Oscar, the precious elder cat tucked among the pothos leaves! In developing the design, I worked with the couple’s dozens of colors of paint chips to line up the wildflowers that might be found in a garden.  The papercut design was entirely hand-cut, planned meticulously to dance with the text and painted flora, and then backed with an ombré watercolor wash to enhance, rather than box in the rest of the art.
