People ask me all the time how to preserve their flowers as a memory of their wedding day. While I fully support drying and keeping your bridal bouquet, my new favorite suggestion is to commission a watercolor painting. A sweet friend of mine, Lauren Reese of Laurel and Pearl, creates these exquisite paintings of florals, which are such a special way to remember your wedding day. And for all the Mamas out there: Lauren also paints the most adorable animal watercolors that are perfect for a nursery!
