Wedding sketches

Wedding sketches

Wedding sketches are unique gifts fitting a Charleston destination wedding. Rick creates gesture drawings of guests at the reception and distributes as memorable keepsakes.  The bride and groom receive specializes drawings of significant events as well.

Review from Abby:

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a sketch is worth ten thousand! Photo booths, painters, caricature artists – all great reception entertainment options but felt too flashy for ours. When it finally dawned on me that a simple, elegant, black & white sketch is what I wanted for each of my guests, I dove into researching artists in the Charleston area. When planning a destination wedding, selecting vendors is ultimately a leap of faith since you likely won't meet them in person. Such was the case when we found & hired Rick to create 50+ real-time sketches for our Charleston wedding reception guests – and I am SO thrilled we did!!! It is hard to imagine a more special keepsake or a nicer, more talented individual than Rick. My mom still refers to him as the ‘secret breakout star’ of the night – none of our guests noticed he was among them until he handed them their sketch! Talk about surprised. As most brides know, the entire day was a blur for me. But there is one point in the night I remember very clearly – during our first dance as husband & wife, I noticed a gentleman standing in the background with a large drawing board…
