Weddings are an important time in everyone’s life. Lots of people think of it as the day that will change their life forever, in the sense that they’ll have a partner and start a family. It’s kind of like a real-life level up. But Taylor Ann Linko’s life changed a few months after her wedding in a very different way. You see, Taylor always wanted to be an artist. She was always interested in art and she was a pretty creative woman who often took on creative projects. But what she dreamt off was being able to support herself financially with her art and she never expected that to happen because of a wedding dress.
Let’s start at the beginning. Taylor knew her wedding day was coming up and she was searching for a perfect wedding dress. But Taylor knew that just any white dress won’t do. She loves color and has a pretty colorful personality and she wanted her wedding dress to reflect that.
Many people in that situation would probably go for a custom made wedding dress, but obviously, that would cost a lot, since even plain white wedding dresses are not cheap. So Taylor chose a creative approach, she found a dress she liked the best, and then decided she was going to paint it herself.
She spent quite a long time picking the right colors and thinking of what’s the best way to combine them. She tried different techniques of applying the colors before actually attempting to do it on her dress.
The process took a few weeks but in the end, Taylor was ready to transform her dress. She chose airbrushing as the technique of coloring her dress and we’ve got to agree that it was a brilliant idea. The colors blended together beautifully and the airbrushing technique allowed for a gorgeous gradient effect and a seamless blend of the colors Taylor chose.
Everyone at her wedding loved the dress and thought that the dress was such a perfect reflection of Taylor’s character. She looked absolutely stunning. She took many pictures to commemorate the event and her one of a kind dress.
It was actually a few months later that Taylor noticed that she was getting a lot of messages on social media. People started liking her photos and messaging her on Facebook and Instagram. Turns out that her photo was posted on one of the big gossip blogs online and that’s how people found out about her unique dress.
The blog didn’t even credit her as the girl in the photo or the artist who painted the dress, but people are smart these days and they managed to track her down online to compliment her dress and ask her if she could paint their dress.
Taylor was over the moon, her hard work was paying off and people were trusting her and willing to pay her to paint their wedding dresses, which is a pretty big deal. She got so many messages and requests that she decided to rent a little studio not far from where she lived and start her own business painting wedding dresses. Her dream finally came true. She was able to use her art in a way that would actually bring her not only joy but actual income that she could use to support herself financially.
If you want to see more of the dresses that Taylor did, you should follow her on Instagram or go to her website. And that’s how Taylor’s wedding became a day that changed her life forever. She never thought that’s how it would happen, but she’s pretty stoked that it did.
