Imagine owning a painting that captures the mood and beauty of your special day. Imagine that the artist creates it right there, live, during your ceremony or reception. Your guests will love the artistic experience, and they may even be captured in the painting.
Live event painters are professional artists who paint a depiction of a wedding or reception as it’s happening. The artist brings their canvas and supplies, sets up at the celebration, and paints a scene that includes the newlyweds, their guests, the venue, and the décor. The painting is delivered to the newlyweds after final finishing touches, which becomes a gorgeous and treasured keepsake.
The exact venue of the painting is decided prior to the event. The artist will consult with you about the best theme for your wedding painting. The first dance is a popular choice. Because receptions tend to last longer than the ceremony, most wedding paintings are created during the reception, where you and your guests can be entertained by the creation process as it evolves throughout the evening.
Couples who commission a live painting are receiving something more than a photograph or video. A painting can capture emotion and ambience; it can tell an entire story.
There are many ways these days to capture memories at your wedding—photographs, video, photo booths, GoPros, live-streaming, social media—but there’s something raw and real about a painting.

When asked about 2017 wedding trends, wedding expert Colin Cowie had this to say: “We’re going to see a lot more greenery in place of abundant wedding flowers. Flowers will certainly never go out of style, but this year they may have to move over for bright and beautiful leaves. It doesn’t hurt that Pantone supported this movement by electing Greenery as their Color of the Year.”
Yes, Pantone just announced its 2017 color of the year, and it’s a zesty, yellow-green color named Greenery.
Many other wedding stylists agree that in 2017, the biggest wedding floral trend is no floral at all. Instead we’ll see simple arrangements of leaves, branches or palms accented with a hint of floral color. For a more dramatic effect, consider incorporating a canopy of greenery that hangs high above guests’ heads.
A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
It evokes the natural beauty of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the outdoors. Greenery reminds us to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
Greenery is nature’s neutral. It is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations. It pairs marvelously with neutrals, brights, deeper shades and pastels.
The "zesty yellow-green" shade can be used in a wide variety of wedding details, including but not limited to bouquets, table runners, bridesmaid dresses, boutonnieres, and even your shoes.
We recommend pairing Greenery with lavender, which grows abundantly in New Mexico’s sandy soils. Lavender is very fragrant and has both a relaxing and uplifting effect.
