Melissa Smith, Venice, Florida Artist, will create an amazing one-of-a-kind map as a special keepsake for your wedding, or any special occasion. Custom wedding maps also provide your out-of-town guests with lots of local information! Sizes Vary. The couple receives the original to frame and or make copies of for family and guests. A digital format file can be included as well. The Couple provides Melissa with a list of items to illustrate NUMBERED by importance. For instance, Number one maybe the Church, while the College Alma Mater may be number 6. But if the couple met at that college/ university and it is very important to them, it may be number 3. That gives Melissa an idea of sizes to when illustrating. She learned this because she illustrates things to fit spaces and is not always aware of the sentiment attached unless she gets background info. That is the fun part! She once illustrated a Team Mascot, Bumble Bee rather large because it fit a space and she thought it was an interesting element to add. Later she learned that that Mascot and school was only a brief part of the brides history! So you must think this out in advance. There is always a list as well of little things a couple would like if possible but are OK if they cant fit. Melissa tries to fit it all but sometimes less is better. many of the couples have framed the original and displayed the art at the reception near the sign in book. Each wedding map as you see here can take up to 4 or 5 days and run about 400. Melissa is flexible depending on how elaborate you get. Her expertise areas are Fairhope, Al, Highlands, NC, Boca Grande,FL, Hope Town, Bahamas and of course Venice/Sarasota area where she is from.
