People still talk about my painting!! It was definately a highlight of my wedding. And the best part is, although the wedding has long since past, I still have the painting as a valued keepsake of the day.Sent on 02/20/2009

I cannot say enough great things about Gail Fitzpatrick and Live Event Paintings. Because I work in the wedding industry, I was determined to add some unique ideas to my own wedding reception. I borrowed the idea of hiring a painter from a national wedding magazine I had seen. I met with about eight different artists that I had found through Craigslist. From the moment I met Gail, I trusted her. I did not have any direction to give her, she simply took my idea and ran with it.Sent on 02/20/2009
Guests at the wedding were amazed at her work...it was such a fun little event within an event for guests to see/participate in. Gail did an amazing job creating this piece of art, while still managing to answer questions from the guests. I stopped over a few times during the reception...it was so much fun to see the painting progress throughout the night.
After the wedding, Gail created adorable thank you cards for me, with an image of the painting on the front. I cannot tell you how many people comment on my thank you cards to this day. I have actually been to people's houses and seen the card framed!
The best part is that we now have a beautiful painting of our wedding for the rest of our lives. It is so much more fun to display than a standard wedding picture of some sort. My husband and I love to point out who is who whenever we have the opportunity to show someone the painting at our house. Gail also had the painting framed for me, which I highly recommend.
Gail is a wonderful artist and a fantastic, trustworthy person overall. I highly recommend working with her on your big day!!

Gail painted not one but TWO paintings of our wedding; the first was live, a gift for my parents, while the second was from a different perspective, painted after the wedding using photos that we provided. This second painting was a gift for my groom's parents. Both sets LOVED the paintings, but I think more importantly, having a "wow factor" at the wedding - a painter capturing the event while it was taking place - was huge. Everyone loved it, and by the end of the night, you could really see where the painting was going.Sent on 03/02/2009
This was a unique way to thank our parents for their support AND add a very cool element to our wedding. I would highly recommend!
