Florida! This was my first Florida map and I was looking forward to it. The bride knew what she wanted: a flat map with whimsical icons including a 1950’s convertible with a couple cruising down from mainland Florida to the keys. The bride also wanted a black and white version as well as one in color – and the colors – guava, lime, lemon. For the border,  seashells and a lime to match the wedding theme.

This map of Antigo, Wisconsin came with a theme: old hollywood. The couple will be decking out their reception site to surprise and delight guests with their theme and wanted to work it  into their map. Once again, the wedding site and reception were too far from each other to do an entirely elevated map so agreed on a mix of elevated and flat map. On the back of the map are written directions and extra instructions.


Another stunning stretch of land for a wedding – Centennial, Wyoming. Since the hotel was so far from the reception and ceremony sites we went for a little bit of an elevated map and a little bit of a flat one…

The latest map I finished was a lot of fun – the bride wanted something a little whimsical, a little victorian and colors to match her suite. Instead of coloring the icons I designated one tone for icons and another for the map itself with some added green for the park where the ceremony is to be held at the request of the bride. I illustrated the lace to tie into the whimsy and the victorian style. I love when brides bring a list of color and theme requests – a great creative challenge!
