Illustration Friday: Wedding (part 2)



Well, I just had to take the time after all to create a new illustration for "wedding" this week. Just couldn't get this phrase out of my head - plus, I wanted to do something way-girly with soft colors. I had also read a number of great wedding/marriage quotes that I wanted to share - so here goes - Enjoy!

_______________
"Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without." ~Dr. James C. Dobson
_______________
"Love is a flower which turns into fruit at marriage." ~Finnish Proverb
_______________
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person." ~Mignon McLaughlin
_______________
"Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate." ~Barnett R. Brickner
_______________
"What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
_______________
"A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short." ~Andre Maurois
_______________

And just for grins...
______________

"A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished." ~Zsa Zsa Gabor
_______________
"Marriage means commitment. Of course, so does insanity." ~Author Unknown
_______________
"Marriage halves our griefs, doubles our joys, and quadruples our expenses." ~English Proverb
_______________
"Men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage - they've experienced pain and bought jewelry." ~Rita Rudner

  11. Beautiful colors... not necessarily 'girly'. Great drawings... icons of the wedding day.

    Maurois has my vote for favorite quote.
