Getting a painting done at your wedding is very unique. Why do you think brides and grooms should get it done?
I believe a live event painting captures the feeling of a wedding differently than photography. There is an aspect of emotion, color and energy in a painting that will always be unique and is classic. It is a novel entertainment idea and people from all walks of life are fascinated by it. It doesn’t distract from the main event, but provides an unusual aspect to a celebration.
I think brides and grooms should have their wedding painted live because it allows them to have a unique entertainment provided during the wedding, which many guests appreciate and enjoy, as well as providing them with a piece of custom art from the day they were married. There are details that are captured in the painting that the couple usually appreciate in a deep way. In the painting I recently finished, the bride wanted her custom veil captured in detail, and the bouquet. I was able to do a more close-up view of these two items as a sort of border around the main painting of the couple during their first dance. I can also incorporate specific people into the painting even if they did not show up in the photos. This allows for editing, adding, removing things they would not want shown in a photo. I can also add details such as gold leaf, and texture that would not be possible in a photograph. Also, these paintings can be given as a gift by a loved one or group. It is a very unique aspect for any event.
