Wedding Memories in Our Home (+Giveaway)

I still like to think of myself as a newlywed.  As my dad said in his beautiful toast at my wedding, that day truly was one of the nicest days of our lives.  I honestly don't know there's a day that goes by that I don't think back fondly to that beautiful September afternoon in New England, filled with love and family.  Part of the reason for the constant flood of memories is all of the wonderful mementos of that day that we have around our home: photos on the bedside and coffee tables, a beautifully framed copy of our invitation hung next to our front door, and almost every aspect of our dining room.
You might remember when we closed on our house last year, we had the whole house painted right away and chose colors off paint chips.  Not knowing where to start, I tried to match the living room off these beautiful placemats and napkins my aunt and uncle gave us for our wedding.  I chose Swimming by Sherwin Williams, which matched perfectly.  I didn't extrapolate how it would look across nine-foot ceilings.  Now we have one bright dining room!  To go with the matching table settings (and trivet - which was another wedding gift from a college teammate), last year, we hung even more wedding reminders: a painting from my college where our ceremony was held and a collage of wedding day detail photos.  Now, this spring, we have finished off the room with my favorite piece yet, a beautiful watercolor of my bridal bouquet.
I am so excited to introduce Linny and her Etsy shop, Imagine It to all of you.  She creates stunning watercolors reminiscent of nature, travel, and the soul.  Her newest inspiration is her own wedding, and she has started making watercolor table numbers and other wedding accessories for fellow brides-to-be.  My favorite of Linny's new collection is her commissioned bridal bouquets.  With a photo of your own wedding bouquet, she will create a one-of-a-kind piece reminiscent of your special day.  In addition to the digital file of your bouquet, Linny will also send you the video of her creating your design - here is mine!
Linny's piece truly brought our whole dining room together, and she hopes to add something special to on of your homes!  Linny is giving away one custom bridal bouquet to a Borrowed Heaven reader.  She will custom paint your (or a friend's - makes a beautiful gift!) bridal bouquet and send you the digital file and time lapse video.  This is a $70 value, and you can enter with the widget below - good luck!

I was not compensated for this post but did receive my original bridal bouquet in exchange for the creation of this post.  I enjoy sharing small businesses with all of you, and opinions are always my own.

Oh my gosh!!! I absolutely love this and she sends a video?! That is so cool. I have wanted to have something like this done with my bouquet since my photographer failed to get more than one photo of my bouquet and it meant so much. What a great idea and the colors are perfect!
