LIVE WEDDING PAINTING
Hi! I'm Emily!
Live Wedding Painting is a unique and fun option that entertains your guests on your wedding day but lasts much longer than that day! You will also have a heirloom for your home. A piece of original art you can pass down to future generations. I love to include meaningful things in your painting. A pendant, a pup, or even someone or something that was not present on that day. You name it! I take great care to make as many of the guests look like the actual guests that were at your wedding! I can paint you during the ceremony, or in front of the venue, or a first dance.
Guests have so much fun stopping by and asking about the painting or just watching the wedding day come to life in a painting. I have the newlyweds paint a few flower dots on their own painting if they have time. The flower girls LOVE to paint petals! I'm even happy to let guests paint. It’s a joy to do! I know it is still a big investment but the time and attention that goes into your painting makes it an art piece you will treasure. I know you will love it, but you can read what other brides have said too!
Please e-mail me and we can start a conversation! I look forward to hearing from you!

WHAT IS INCLUDED?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
I will spend 5-7 hours onsite the day of the wedding. I'll arrive about 2 hours early to set up and paint the background, paint during the ceremony, and then relocate to the reception to continue painting. The painting will go home with me for studio touchups to be sure special details, as well as a protective varnish after completion.
WILL YOU CHAT WITH GUESTS?
Enneagram seven here! If guests would like to ask questions or watch and chat I would love that. It's part of the experience and unique offering of a live wedding painter! Being a mom of three, I do have a magical power I think of being a magnet for the kids. Okay it's the bright colors and fun paint, I love to let them take the brush and paint a few flower petals!
DO YOU PAINT THE CEREMONY OR RECEPTION?
That's completely up to you! Once we book your wedding date, we start a conversation and you share with me your vision and special details. On your wedding day I'll be inspired by the scene with your special requests and details in mind.
WHAT SIZE CANVAS DO YOU OFFER?
16in x 20in
20in x 24in
24in x 30in
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY WEDDING PAINTING?
This is somewhat dependent on size and detail, however my goal is 6-8 weeks after your wedding! Shipping is included in your quote and there is not an additional charge for this service.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Probably your most important factor in considering a live wedding painting! Please e-mail me to start this conversation!
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?
I ask for 50% payment to secure your wedding date and the remaining 50% is due on or before the day of your wedding.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PAINTING?
Someone described my artwork as "joyful" and I would have to agree. I tend to use bold bright colors, as opposed to muted neutrals. I want it to be a statement piece of artwork from your day, not something that will blend in with the wall! I'm a mix of realistic and abstract, you never know what your day might inspire! I have rebranded from Jane & Pearl but my style and mission remains the same!
