This post has been a long time coming! Though I sent out thank you cards after the wedding last August, I wanted to publicly thank four amazing ladies for their very special wedding gift to us.
Aileen, Gaby, Katie, and Perry all pooled together to get famed illustrator Rob Dobi to create a framed illustration of me & Jesse! In fact, of Jesse proposing to me!
You may be familiar with Rob Dobi's name from his site Your Scene Sucks. He also provided the illustrations for Trevor Kelley & Leslie Simon's fab book Everybody Hurts! Apparently, you can get illustrated yourself or commission Mr. Dobi to illustrate someone else, a la my four fab friends! Check out how here at Please Draw Me, where he also displays us along other couples he's illustrated:
When Jesse and I opened the gift, I immediately recognized Dobi's hand. I couldn't believe these girls did it! They worked with him to create all the minute details, too! (From my yellow bridal shower dress, my Harajuku Lovers heels, Jesse's Nikes, Jesse's Ben Sherman shirt, Jesse's tattoos!) And now we have a lovely (and crazy accurate) illustration of Jesse and me to memorialize the beginning of our lives together. My friends rule! So, again to Aileen, Gaby, Katie, and Perry - who all have lovely blogs of their own - THANK YOU!!
