wedding portraits

My friends, Angela Attento and Diego Brenes, were married this past December in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Around the time of their wedding, Angela, (a history buff) was reading about the life of John Adams when she was inspired by the traditional wedding portraits he and his wife, Abigail, posed for shortly after their nuptials. Angela commissioned me to create similar portraits of her and Diego, painted with an eye towards early American portraiture. In addition to having new art for their home, the paintings also doubled as artwork for the couple's wedding announcements.
