Live wedding painting

THE Process

On the day of your wedding, I will show up at the venue of your ceremony one hour before the ceremony begins to set up my easel and begin painting. I will work throughout the ceremony painting the background first, painting in the guests as they arrive, and finally painting the bride, groom, and bridal party.


At the end of the ceremony the painting will be transported to the reception where I will provide entertainment for the guests as I finish the painting from pictures.

At the end of the wedding I will take the painting home to allow it to dry and to put on some finishing touches and your finished masterpiece will be mailed or delivered to you when you return from your honeymoon.

Paintings are done in an impressionist style and due to time constraint are not heavily detailed; however, your painting is guaranteed to capture the look and feel of your wedding day.

WHat is included?

  • A finished painting in either oil paint or watercolor created with archival, museum-quality materials, ensuring an heirloom that will last for generations.

  • 4-6 hours of on-site live painting, providing entertainment for your guests.

  • A virtual coffee date with me sometime before wedding so that we can chat about your painting, I can answer questions, and we can ensure that everything turns out the way you are envisioning.

"Emma is SO incredibly talented and she will not disappoint! Not to mention, she is professional, prepared, kind and considerate of all other wedding activities! She did a live painting for our wedding and all of our guests were enamored by her talent and the way she portrayed our big day on canvas. The painting is so special to us and we love having it on our living room wall!"

"Emma’s presence and painting added so much to our wedding day, and we can’t imagine our home without the beautiful painting that hangs in our living room! It is a constant reminder of the joy of our wedding, and the love and support of family and friends. Emma was very professional and did a wonderful job of capturing the atmosphere of the day as our guests were arriving and as the ceremony took place. We were amazed when we saw the painting after the ceremony and loved having it hang in our reception tent. Several guests commented on how much they loved the masterpiece. Emma’s painting style is lovely, and we would highly recommend her work to anyone who wants a constant reminder of the wonder of their wedding day!"
