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.
