How would it feel to be able to always hold an heirloom keepsake that was actually created ON your wedding day?

Think about it! Your delicious food will be eaten. Those incredible flowers will, eventually, wither. But your live wedding painting is forever, and it will be an experience you AND your guests will talk about...well, forever!

Take it from one of my past couples:
"You can always have someone paint from a picture or take a photograph, but having a painting of our first dance by someone that witnessed it and made it come to life on canvas on our special night gives it so much more meaning." - Rachel & Robert, Water View, VA

Kind Words

Larkin & Corey

Larkin and Corey requested a wedding ceremony exit live wedding painting featuring them and their two adorable Frenchies! Though they actually married in front of an amazing backdrop installation, they asked that the charming exterior of the Governor Thomas Bennett House be painted behind them.

Kelly & Tim

I had the honor of being Tim's (the groom) surprise gift to his beautiful bride! All morning Tim left little clues for Kelley, and it all lead to my reveal! Tim requested a celebratory ceremony exit painting featuring their two pooches (whom, unfortunately, couldn't be present to celebrate with their humans). The couple's parents are also featured in the background.

Matt & Wade

As a surprise gift from Aunt Jeanan, the oh so dapper grooms couldn't believe their eyes! Aunt Jeanan requested that the painting feature just the two of them during an intimate moment of their wedding ceremony right outside their historic venue, the 1899. Matt and Wade's ceremony brought me to tears when, in lieu of traditional scripture, they asked a friend to perform a reading of the US Supreme Court ruling on Same Sex marriage. All of the guests cheered, and I lost it!

Nazifa & Faateh

Though a scheduling hiccup actually prevented the bride and groom from sharing a traditional first dance, that didn't stop this live painter from making the bride's request come to life! Once Nazifa and Faateh had a moment alone, I kindly asked if they'd give me a little twirl. Their heirloom painting literally created a memory for them!

Kyndall & Jake

Kyndall and Jake wondered if it would be possible to capture both their ceremony and reception in one painting. Of course I said yes! Though their ceremony was outside and their reception inside, I used an exterior view of the venue to create cohesion between the two moments. At left, the bride and groom are exiting their ceremony with their three dogs. At right, I captured a dip during their first dance in front of an exterior venue likeness of the picturesque White Sparrow Barn!

Tara & Allan

Tara and Allan's wedding team transformed their interior reception space into a vintage garden dream. But, it was actually a private moment they shared during their room reveal that I captured! After gasping over the gorgeous decor, Allan led Tara to the dance floor where they swayed for a few moments, just the two of them.

Maggie & Alex

Maggie and Alex chose the Decatur House, the home of the White House Historical Association, in part for its charming and historic courtyard. Unfortunately, they were a tad heartbroken that their ceremony had to be tented. Maggie informed me that their live painting would be the only documentation from their big day without the tent, and that's what she would treasure most. Oh, and the fact that their two incredible German Shepherds would be painted in!

Gina & Daniel

I had the honor of being a surprise gift from the parents of the groom! Gina and Daniel didn't have a clue until they saw a strange lady standing in the corner with an easel. Daniel's Mom requested that the painting focus on the two newlyweds, but wanted to ensure it captured some of the elegant reception details, particularly the centerpieces. As a special touch, I added in a likeness of the exterior of the venue at right where, in reality, there was just a barn door leading to the bathrooms!

Brittany & Ben

The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club has an incredible view of not only the Bay, but the Bay Bridge! However, because the ballroom was just so jam packed with friends and loved ones, my painting view was facing the back wall of the space. Not to worry, though! For Brittany and Ben's final painting, I flipped the room to ensure that incredible view was captured. And, of course, their beloved pooch, who could not be there to celebrate with them, makes an appearance in the painting!

Anisha & Bruce

Anisha and Bruce made the unique request to have their cocktail hour painted! They had the most perfect day with the most perfect weather. And with that incredible of a golf course view, of course it made for a picture perfect painting! The bride and groom's parents are looking lovingly on in the middle ground.

Courtney & Geoff

We're not quite sure how it happened, but Courtney and Geoff ended up with the most perfect weather for their August wedding! Though their ceremony took place right outside the charming venue mansion, Courtney really wanted the painting to focus on their little family: bride, groom, and pooch!

Bridgette & Dietz

A surprise gift from the Mother of the Groom, Bridgette and Dietz's intimate live painting focused solely on the two of them and their first dance. The gorgeous, rich wood tones of their reception ballroom added an extra special layer of depth to the painting that I love.
