Personalized and beautifully done! The best wedding purchase we made!

We had a map made of north Georgia for our wedding to highlight all of our big milestones and favorite memories. Working with Rising Tide was hands down the best decision. The quality of art was outstanding, and they go above and beyond to make unique and personalized touches! She was so professional, met all set timelines and was so genuine throughout the process. Caroline even added touches of wine to the paint for the vineyards! I could not have asked for a more perfect painting to display at our wedding and cherish in our home forever!

Caroline is the best, there’s no contest.

I am so grateful for Caroline and the beautiful artwork she was able to create for our special day. She was an extreme professional from start to finish, provided detailed updates throughout her design process, and did an exceptionally thorough consultation to ensure that we were all on the same page about our vision and the products we would be purchasing. I have recommended her services countless times and will continue to do so for as long as she is in business.
