Y’all may recall last year’s Illustrated Bride giveaway, where we bestowed one lucky bride with a custom bridal gown illustration, courtesy Jennifer Hancock, aka the artist behind The Illustrated Bride. Well we’re delighted to share with you winning bride Kristin’s illustration, which includes Kristin in her stunning Vera Wang gown, AND her adorbs groom all done up in dapper formal wear. Says artist Hancock, “I am VERY happy with the final piece. Kristin is just gorgeous and I hope my work does her some justice!” Interested in having Hancock transform your bridal photo into a gown illustration that’ll become a keepsake for generations to come?

Check out five of our favorite metal-accent wedges for warm-season celebrations…or, ya know, pretty much anytime you walk on out of the house!
