Brushing Bride

Reviewed on 5/13/2015 Jayme G

I recently got married about 2 years ago at Bear Creak Ski resort in Pa and like every bride was on a high after their wedding, however at the same time I was exhausted from months of planning. I had every intention of preserving my dress, displaying wedding photos throughout my... Read More house, and searching for the perfect photo to showcase of my dress. Time got the best of me and before I knew it none of these things happened :) I discovered Brushing Bride and loved the idea of having a sketch done of my dress. I knew I had to have one! On our two year anniversary my husband surprised me with the Photo and I loved it! It was a way to capture my wedding day, and everytime I look at the photo it brings back memories of my very special day when I married my best friend. It is a piece that you will have forever and makes a great wedding gift, anniversary gift, wedding party gift, or just a gift to yourself :) I would recommend Brushing Bride to anyone, and if you have not purchased one yet do not wait any longer!


The Perfect Wedding Gown Preservation!

Krystina's work is flawless, leaving a timeless memory of the best day of my life! I saw one of Krystina’s very first bridal sketches online just a few short months after my wedding day and it occurred to me that I hadn’t seen my wedding gown since I handed it off to my Mother... Read More to have preserved. My 2-piece allure gown featured a charmeue slip and appliqué overlay adorned with embroidery and crystals. The gown itself is very special to me and made me feel elegant and beautiful on my wedding day. I knew I had to have Krystina sketch my gown, both front and back, so that I could remember the day so vividly. Krystina exceeded my expectations. I knew the small detail and lace design would be very difficult to sketch, but Krystina’s piece turned out flawless. I hung my sketch on the wall in my bedroom! I purchased my sketch in October 2014 and to this day it is still my favorite keepsake from my Wedding Day :)

Brushing Bride came to fruition after gifting a bridal gown illustration to my best friend. I had been drawing pictures for her on special occasions since we were little girls, and I thought her dress would be the perfect subject on her wedding day. I framed the sketch and gave it to her on her wedding day. Afterwards, her twelve bridesmaids asked how they could place an order, and, thus, Brushing Bride was born. Although formally trained in several mediums, including ink, acrylic, and watercolor, my favorite medium to work with is graphite pencil.
