Worth A Thousand Words: Live Painting

PICTURES, VIDEOS & SNAP STORIES That’s how many brides plan to preserve their big day

BUT HAVE YOU CONSIDERED A MORE TRADITIONAL OPTION?

Live painting – it’s the hottest new reception trend (& the best thing since drone photography!) You can hire a trained artist to attend your reception, with canvas in tow, and paint your dream reception details. There are so many ways brides try to hold on to the big day memories – guest books, weird thumbprint trees (vom) and even prompting guests to sign their names over a canvas of their favorite engagement photo (which I’ve always thought was kind of odd – “Meg was here” scrawled across the groom’s forehead? I’ll pass.)

THIS IS A TREASURED MEMENTO YOU’LL ACTUALLY WANT TO HANG IN YOUR HOME

And this vendor is a win-win. Guests can mingle while the painter begins the starting sketch of the reception space and continue to watch in admiration as the details are painted to life. You, your groom, your loved ones and the romantic aesthetic of the big day all customized into one work of art. Live painters are usually at a vendor for 5-7 hours to capture the best, most up-to-date moments. My soon-to-be sis-in-law attended a stunning wedding this past weekend, check out her photos of the live paint sesh:

The obsession is REAL. It’s up to you as a couple to decide what part of the big day you want memorialized in a fabulous painting. This canvas was painted by Patricia Bennett of Hero Entertainment. Search for live painters in your area via The Knot’s wedding vendor marketplace.
