A painting of your vows? A portrait of your newlywed nest? Yes, please
After saying her 2016 “I do’s,” College of Charleston alumna Markey Haselden calligraphed her vows as a reminder of the bond she created with her husband. That keepsake launched her into a side business that’s become one of Charleston’s hottest Etsy shops, Hatch Cove Designs.
Markey, a self-taught artist, now creates custom wedding maps, invitation suites, floral portraits, escort cards, and more for clients throughout the country. Her artwork ranges from $18-$100 per print and adds a handcrafted, elegant element to your Big Day. Interested in learning watercolor skills? She’s hosted classes at West Elm and elsewhere.
