One of my favorite aspects of blogging is meeting creative and inspiring people. At the start of the year, I started noticing illustrations by LS Art & Illustration on Instagram. Lakshmi, founder of LS Art & Illustration, and I both share a passion for the arts, fashion, and South Asian culture. We soon connected and started chatting about ideas for a collaboration. I loved seeing  Lakshmi’s sketching of South Asian designers and muses. We soon agree that sketching one of my bridal looks would be the perfect way for Lakshmi to showcase her talent and share her sketches with readers. I love how she captured the design and flow of my sangeet outfit so vividly.  I also can’t wait to do a live sketching session when I back on the East Coast. I chatted with Lakshmi to learn more about her creativity and passion for sketching!

#WeddingSeries – Custom Art with Kavi & Co.

// Painting by Kavi & Co. //

Instagram is one of my favorite ways to meet creative designers, artists, and bloggers. I met Kirn Gill, artist and c0-founder of Kavi & Co., through Instagram and was drawn to her beautiful art. When I learned that Kirn paints custom art work, I was excited to have a piece commissioned for my wedding! Since our proposal story is so close to my heart, I decided to have a photo from our engagement painted. It was such a pleasure to work with Kirn. She was very collaborative and asked for my feedback throughout the process. In the end, the painting came out exactly as I had hoped. When I popped the question to my bridesmaids, I had Kirn’s painting in the center! My bridesmaids loved the thoughtful setup. Check out the photos of how I popped the question below. And if you are looking for custom art or paintings, I highly recommend Kavi & Co.
