"An original artwork will preserve a piece of your past and be in your family forever, gracing your home for generations to come."

The live wedding painter Lori intends to illuminate those essential moments of joy, love, laughter, and hope that words can not properly capture. To communicate those brief mystical moments that our soul has been touched by through her paintbrush onto the canvas, which then allows it to be re-visited and shared with each generation that beholds it.

Weddings, Anniversaries, and other Special Occasions

Capture the essence of your relationship in an beautiful painting created in the studio and finished while your reception is happening. A work of art painted on location evolves on the canvas just as the event unfolds around you. Guests will enjoy watching the evolution of the composition with great interest and enthusiasm, and it is ready for display at the end of the event. An alternative, have a painting of a special moment captured in time ready for display during the wedding reception. Equally as special, the original painting would make a special centerpiece for the event, inviting guests to linger and enjoy sharing in that special moment captured in a beautiful work of art to last generations. What wonderful heirloom, created for a special event.

Aside from live event painting, Lori can also entertain crowds with gestural portrait drawings during the reception. Created in soft pastel or charcoal with a pop of your wedding color, your guests will be walking home with a favor they can frame and admire.

Additional options for your special event includes:

  • Studio paintings created from photographs of events leading up to the wedding
  • Have your work of art photographed and printed on thank-you cards
  • Create a print of your paintings/drawings for a gift for the mother and father of the bride and groom
  • An illustration from your engagement photographs or a private sitting would make a beautiful guest table well-wishes centerpiece for signatures

Customize the event with special touches of unique, one of a kind artistic creations that meet your needs by contacting Lori directly.

Captured the Moment

Lori did an amazing job in capturing our crazy hour during our wedding reception. When we saw our painting we could feel the excitement from that day in her artistry. Wonderful communicator and a great vendor to have as part of your special day.

My Fiancé and I had a painting commissioned to mark our decision to get married. Since he proposed in Italy Lori suggested we use one of our vacation photos from Venice. We couldn't be more ecstatic with the way it turned out. We now have a beautiful work of art to remind us of that beautiful memory. We recently displayed the painting at our engagement party and received so many compliments! We can't wait to display it at the wedding next year! Working with Lori was such and easy and enjoyable experience. She is reliable and delivered on time. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants a one of a kind, unique and thoughtful gift!

Lori created a beautiful time-line painting for us to present to our mom as a very special 80th birthday gift. We supplied Lori with photos of our mom's several homes and automobiles over the years, and photos of our families. We gave her details of our mom's important milestones in her life (where she grew up, college she attended, special vacations, etc) and Lori was able to incorporate all of these details into a gorgeous one-of-a-kind painting. She communicated with me on a regular basis to get my okay on her progress and she completed the project on time. We were incredibly delighted with the painting and so was our mom! Would definitely hire Lori again if we have another project and we very highly recommend her!
