A couple getting married made a request for a portrait. I was more than happy to work on this project.

My only question? What are some of the foods that they both enjoy? Without hesitation, it was pho.

Since one half of the couple is a vegetarian, I didn’t want to feature any meats and so I focused on the side dish of Thai basil, bean sprouts, limes and chilis which were the details used in lieu of the traditional floral border.

And, of course, I had to get a pun in to tie it all together.

Here is the final artwork framed with a large mat for guests to write messages for the happy couple.
