Saturdays are pretty amazing (it’s the weekend, after all), but when it’s a Saturday that involves a meet and greet with the newest member of our SMP Family, it’s a little extra special.  Think one full day dedicated to Grace Portraits and their totally fabulous + totally unique hand-drawn portraits.  It’s a gift that is both stunning AND meaningful.  Do yourself a favor and say hello.

Imagine surprising your nearest and dearest with a breathtaking work of art that will truly stand the test of time and you’ll land squarely on Grace Portraits, a crazy cool boutique that knows all there is to know about capturing those uber-special moments with hand-drawn portraits commissioned from local Bay Area artists.  Not to mention that each gift is wrapped in customized monogrammed packaging with a special note from the artist… AND you can choose from a variety of sizes and price points (11×14: $300, 16×20: $500, 18×24: $700), so no matter the recipient or occasion, there’s a Grace Portraits’ masterpiece that is more than perfect.  Just check out our very own SMP bride, Ashley Hoffman, and her stunning Grace Portrait drawing below.
