a wedding story….iris

Because every illustration tells a story….


Her name is Iris…

Last night she married the love of her life in a sunset wedding at her family’s Sonoma vineyard surrounded by vines lush with deep purple grapes and bouquets of Irises everywhere! She chose a long sleeved lace gown from Monique Lhuiller reminiscent of the hand sewn gown her great-grandmother wore as a young bride arriving in California with her new husband as migrant farmworkers in the 1930’s…..From those humble beginnings they built a family empire out of hard work, laughter and love…

Like the matriarch before her, “it was her habit to build up laughter out of inadequate materials.” John Steinbeck – The Grapes of Wrath

What’s your wedding story? I’d love to know!
