For my best friends wedding the bridesmaids got together to gift out of the box (aka off registry) and found Ashley to live paint two moments in their day. It was the best, not only was the process of working with her before hand easy as pie, or was SO COOL seeing guests, the couple, and our friends “ooooh” and “aaaah” on wedding day.
