Services Offered
Ahead of your special occasion, Burlington Paint & Sip will hold a consultation, during which Megan and Claire will get to know your vision. For weddings, they typically paint the first kiss or first dance, but can also bring together elements from different parts of your event into one painting. On the big day, they will arrive early to begin rendering the background, and will continue to paint throughout the festivities. They can include whatever settings, props, and loved ones you desire and work from a photograph so that you don’t have to pose. As you enjoy your magical night, these artists will bring your love story to life with vibrant acrylics.

What an amazing keepsake....

I've been to many weddings and few things surprise me. When I saw a canvas and painter at Sarah and Aaron's wedding, I was shocked. Two skillful painters were creating a one-of-a-kind portrait from their wedding ceremony. As the celebration progressed, my daughter and I would check the painting as it continued to develop and come to live. Claire and Megan were patient as they answered questions and frequent requests to take a peek. It truly made the wedding one to never forget.

Wonderful and unique wedding keepsake!

Megan and Claire arrived timely on the day of my wedding to set up their space needed for the live painting. They worked throughout the reception providing a fun opportunity for guests to see what they were doing and how the painting was coming along. In the end, we received a beautiful painting capturing a special moment during our ceremony!

Megan has been painting as long as she can remember, and fell in love with the magic of weddings at a young age.

"I feel such a special connection to the couple when they invite us to paint at their wedding, it is truly such an honor to be asked to be apart of someone's special day, and I think that magic comes through in all the paintings we do," ~Megan

Her impressionistic style brings the essence of the event to life in her paintings.
