The Ultimate Gift

What a gift to have this painting. I know it will pass down through future generations. Maggie was absolutely amazing, and her coordinator/sister is equally outstanding. They were extremely professional and took care to follow every instruction and fulfill all the details I wanted. I felt like I was meeting my celebrity crush! She could not have been any nicer, not only to me but to my guests and family who inquired and stopped by her painting set. Cannot recommend enough. She was the most important piece of my wedding by far, and she was the first thing I booked even before I had a date or venue (I actually based everything else around the date that worked for her!)
I'd relive my wedding all over just to have her there again and share that special moment with my husband watching her add my parents into the portrait (who have already passed on). If I could give 20 stars, I would. Love you Maggie! xx

If a picture is worth a thousand words, Maggie's portrait of us is a timeless library encased in a single frame.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, Maggie's portrait of us is a timeless library encased in a single frame.

She not only captured a moment but eloquently encapsulated years of commitment, months of unfolding emotions, and an essential instance destined to echo through generations.

With her delicate strokes and masterfully chosen hues, Maggie did more than paint our likenesses; she intricately wove the palpable dream of our special day onto the canvas, bringing to life the most enchanting moment of our lives together.

Her presence was like a silent hug, that warmed every guest, as they watched her craft our commission.

Every glance at her work doesn't merely transport us back to the memories of the day; it pushes us into the very second of joy that will perpetually live within our hearts.

Choosing Maggie to immortalize a snippet of the beginning of our life together wasn’t just a decision; it was an investment. An investment that provides us with a perfect account of our inaugural day, blessing all our tomorrows together.

Her talent, transcending mere artistry, captures moments with a timeless elegance that now graciously gilds our home and perpetually echoes within our hearts.

Maggie, from the depths of our hearts, thank you for painting not just the moment, but immortalizing the most cherished memory we hold of one another.

Your creativity, meticulous attention to detail, and transcendent talent allow us to feel the love for one another through your painting each and every day.

We are forever grateful.

Beautiful painting!

Maggie was AMAZING!! She painted our ceremony and it was breath taking. She painted throughout the night, and guests LOVED watching her progress. She finished by the conclusion of the reception, and we were able to take the piece home with us. She is beyond talented, and also the friendliest person. She was so sweet and we were so happy to have her at our wedding. We would recommend her to anyone!!
