​INFO: How it works and what you get....

  •  You can choose between any three of the following settings to paint:

    • Your ceremony

    • Social Hour

    • Reception (this choice can include your first dance - Instead of seating you at the head table, I add the dance floor and paint your first dance and make it become the focal point of the painting.

    • OR BOTH your Ceremony & Reception/First Dance! I will work with smaller canvases and capture both settings throughout the day/evening.

  • I typically arrive 1-2 hours before your ceremony or reception starts and begin sketching/painting the background/architecture/landscape of your setting. As your guests start arriving,  I begin painting each one as they are seated or mingle with cocktails etc. I stay with your wedding through the reception and continue to paint live until it is complete. - even if your reception is at a different venue. 

  • Guests enjoy watching the process as they find themselves appear in the painting!

  • Each canvas is quality heavy weight cotton canvas stretched/wrapped over a solid gallery 1.5" stretcher. 

  • I use High quality Gamblin Oil Paints and or Acrylic Paints that will hold the color and pigment for more than a lifetime. 

  • I will take the painting back to my studio to dry or you may make a request to keep the painting at the end of the event - Just let me know if you want to keep the painting at the end of the night  to make arrangements for this option - The painting will be wet and will need appropriate packaging. (If your wedding is out of state, You will need to make arrangements to have a friend or family member bring your painting home.)

  • For all Minnesota based events, Your painting will be shipped to you around 2-4 months (oil Paintings) after your wedding date - Dry time depends on texture and thickness of oil painting . Your painting will be varnished and ready to hang.

  • Framing options are available and additional cost

  • Once the Painting is dry, Shipping/handling may additional - approx $30 - $150 within the US.

  • Options such as note cards or prints, can easily be added to your bundle.

  • The canvas size is approx

    • 20" x 30" - 24" x 36"  (smaller sizes may be requested however price stays the same) ​

    • For more than one painting on site, the canvases are around 16" x 20"
