Google+ 12 Days of Southern Weddings Christmas: Deann Designs - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

For many of us, our wedding was the best day of our life (and for all of us, it was an immensely important and joyful milestone!). It’s no surprise, then, that we’d want to fill our homes with things that remind us of that day. I, for example, have my wedding vows watercolored and framed, our wedding invitation hanging in a gallery wall, and a giant canvas of the sunset over the beach at our cocktail hour.

If you’re still looking for a creative way to remember your wedding in your home, I’ve got a treat for you today!

Deann Designs is a Nashville artist who creates original paintings with a distinctive muted color palette. Her work has been featured everywhere from Design*Sponge to HGTV to House Beautiful and Country Living. While she is well-known for her beautiful barn, church, and angel paintings, she also accepts commissions, most notably from newlyweds.

Win: A 30×30 custom Deann Designs wedding painting + a $250 store credit! (Valued at $3,500)

    Our first dance song was actually “I Don’t Dance” by Lee Brice. It fit our personalities so well and every time I hear it on the radio I start to tear up when thinking about how much meaning that one song has to me.
