Amazing Live Wedding Painter

We were absolutely blown away by Julia鈥檚 live painting. The painting is beautiful and all of our guests loved watching her paint and many have asked us how it turned out. Our wedding day was cold and windy and Julia braved the weather to create a beautiful painting of our outdoor ceremony. She also included our dogs who were not actually at the ceremony, but it was a beautiful touch! I would DEFINITELY recommend her!!!

Julia is the BEST!

Julia was one of the highlights of the wedding! Everyone at the reception was blown away by the live painting and told me what a fun, unique idea it was! Julia sent a questionnaire before the wedding to get details of what I was envisioning. She captured my ceremony better than I could have imagined! Julia was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. She added so much joy to our wedding, and now we have a beautiful work of art to remember our day!

You NEED Julia to Paint at your Wedding!!

If you are looking to be different, to have your wedding talked about for years to come, to own an exquisite, priceless piece of artwork, you NEED to hire Mrs. Julia McNally to come to your venue and paint a live painting of you and your spouse. It has become a huge hit these days to capture your wedding day uniquely, and live paintings are the way to go!! We first discovered Julia at my cousin's wedding back in 2018, and my now husband and I knew, even BEFORE we got engaged, that we had to have Julia come to our wedding to paint us. We asked her to paint our first dance, and it surely is a work of art. It truly brings me such joy as I look at it hanging over our couch in our living room. On top of this, all of your wedding guests are mesmerized by her work, making your wedding that much more unique. Not only is Julia so hardworking, but she is so personable, kind, and professional. It was truly an honor to have her paint us, and it will be a statement piece in our home for the rest of our lives.

Thank you so much, Julia!!! xoxo- The Wainscott's
