Gone are the days of wasting money on wedding favors no one wants. I say, give your guests a wedding favor they'll treasure, or just skip it and put the money towards something else in your wedding budget.
If you've been dreaming of live event painting to incorporate more fine art in your wedding and want to engage & entertain your guests, live watercolor & calligraphy are amazing ways to do it!
Introducing... live wedding guest portrait painting!!
Not only does this provide entertainment during cocktail hours & after dinner for those guests taking a break from the dance floor, it also gives your wedding guests a favor they will take home & frame to remember your wedding fondly forever.
I engage with all of your guests by having them sit with me for 5 minutes while I paint their portrait in watercolor on 5x7 fine art watercolor paper. If they're shy & would rather not pose for me, I can take their photo & paint it when there's not a line & they can come back for it later in the night.
It can either be added on to any of my other live event services or I can paint guest portraits for the duration of your whole wedding!
Another way I offer awesome guest favors is by doing live calligraphy on demand!! Guests love watching calligraphy live and often hang around to ask questions or just watch as I hand letter other guests' favors as well!
They get to pick whatever they'd like me to write & watch their request come to life before their eyes! Yes, I'll even calligraph swear words as lots of groomsmen request!
This custom experience often leaves guests asking if they can really keep it because they just can't believe they get to!
What starts this experience is a watercolor portrait of either your wedding location or the flowers you're using in your wedding. I then create prints of your artwork that I will eventually calligraph live for your guests to take home.
Ink normally dries in one minute (so it won't get all over their fancy attire) & normally guests hang around chatting for longer than that!
I love engaging with your beloved friends & family while exposing them to something they don't get to see every day.
This experience is one your wedding guests will remember as unique to your wedding, & they'll have the paintings to remind them every day of how much you love them.
