Jessica was amazing! Her work is beautiful! Jessica not only provides you with a lifetime keepsake of your wedding but she also is a focal point at the event. My guests loved talking to her and watching the progress of the painting through out the night. I highly recommend Jessica!

With Love,


Very cool idea for your wedding. We enjoyed it and love that we have a work of art about our wedding to hang on our wall for years to come. It's a one of a kind original of our wedding. it's expensive but you should splurge on something for your wedding.

How it works

Every Brushstroke, a Memory.

On the day of your event Jessica likes to arrive 4-5 hours prior to guests entering the main ballroom or space to paint the background and decor. She arrives with her easel and blank canvas and paints everything she sees. The architecture of the ballroom, tablescapes, chandeliers, and your cake. All of the details you have planned coming together in one painting.

Three weeks prior to the event you will discuss specific details for your painting. Jessica will ask the lighting/mood and any reasonable requests for the painting. Is there a favorite grandparent you'd like to make sure is in the painting this is the time to let her know. Is there someone you do not want in the painting, this is your chance.

A Live Event Painting is so special because it is a painting of the moment. It is not a portrait. It is painterly and elegant in a way that realism of defined portraiture can not be. The couple will be the most recognizable while family and other guests will be painted in a more impressionistic style.

Paintings are typically 80% completed live at the wedding or event. Guests are able to leave really feeling like they witnessed something amazing take place in front of their eyes. A piece of art being created live as the wedding unfolds. At the time dessert is served Jessica takes the painting back to her studio to receive touch ups and details. The painting is typically complete 3-4 months after the event.
