My husband was looking for the perfect gift for me for our first married Christmas together. He found Brushing Bride, emailed them pictures of me in my dress from our wedding day (and of the gown itself), and had the artists draw a perfect recreation of my lace wedding gown and cathedral length veil! What a special and unique gift that I will treasure for years. The recreation of my gown looks perfect down to every detail. The framed drawing hangs on my wall and I get to enjoy my wedding gown every day. I love mine so much that I am going to order from Brushing Bride for my friends anniversary gifts! Thanks Brushing Bride!
Simply perfect! I received a custom drawing of my Reem Acra wedding dress as a Christmas gift from my sister (and maid of honor) and I can confidently say that it is hands down one of the best gifts I have ever received! I am so in love with my wedding dress and am so happy to now have a visual reminder and keepsake that will be a true fixture in my home and last a lifetime. Krystina's work is truly a unique and modern twist on dress preservation and an innovative and elegant way to keep your dress on display. I am most impressed with how Krystina captured the elegant and articulate design of the dress without losing any of the delicacy or glamour of Reem Acra; it's a perfect sketch that I am sure the designer would also fall in love with! Thank you, Krystina! So happy my sister discovered The Brushing Bride and can't wait to put in an order in the future!
I was in one of my best friends weddings and wanted to do something more than writing a check, I wanted to do something special. A few months prior I was in a wedding with Krystina, the talent behind Brushing Bride, where she gifted the bride (my sister-in-law and her best friend) a beautiful sketch of her dress. When I was thinking of what to do for a special gift for my best friend, I was glad I recalled Krystina’s beautiful work. My friend’s dress was lace with many intricate details, but I knew after seeing some of Krystina’s work that she would do a great job! Since my friend’s dress had a beautiful back, I opted for a front and back view. In a timely manner Krystina completed the sketch. It was beautiful! I was so excited to give it to my friend that I brought it to her that same night it came in the mail. Krystina voiced that that lace was a bit more difficult than she anticipated, but I believe she did an amazing job. My favorite part of the sketch was the train. She did a fantastic job with the details in how the dress layed and the lace in this area of the dress was spot on. One thing I wish I had voiced, had I known to voice beforehand, was that the body be realistic in the proportions. I felt as though the torso was a bit long and narrow, but nothing to be bothered or upset by. It is a wonderful piece of art that my friend will cherish forever. In fact, each time I am at my friends house I am reminded by how special this gift was to her, as it hangs on the wall in her home. I will definitely use Krystina's talent to create timeless gifts for dear friends in the future!
Krystina did a magnificent job capturing the fine detail and embellishments of this two piece classic ball gown worn at a breathtaking wedding overlooking the Amalfi Coast. The bride and groom were deserving of a gift as picturesque as their wedding and this was it! The drawing arrived flawless and beautifully matted in an ornately trimmed gold frame. This is the first of many hand-sketched drawings I will be ordering from the Brushing Bride. It is the perfect gift to capture the beauty and romance of any wedding.
Got this as gift for my best friend. She was so excited just like every bride she was obsessed with her dress. Its a great gift for the bridal party to give. Can't wait to place my next order!!
We surprised Valerie last Saturday with the portrait of her wedding dress!!!!!!
They absolutely LOVED it !!!! She was thrilled with the beautiful sketch of her wedding dress!!! The portrait looks amazing hung up by their staircase.
Thank you again Krystina for your amazing work of art!
Like many brides, my wedding dress was one of my favorite parts of the whole day! I didn't want to get out of it at the end of the night. I found Krystina's work through a friend's posting on facebook and contacted her right away. This is the perfect way to preserve your dress- you can enjoy it every day!
Krystina was more than helpful. She is incredibly detail oriented and used her talent to perfectly capture my gown from the fabric, to the details on my belt, to the hint of color.
This is the perfect gift for any bride you know! I will not hesitate recommending Brushing Bride to every bride I know.
