Live Wedding Painting


Using a combination of creative and entertainment skills, Kelsey creates an artistic rendition of your wedding while painting live on scene. For a romantic ceremony, your first kiss, or, a heartfelt first dance, she is able to capture the venue and moment on canvas. A live painting provides unique entertainment and personalization for your big day, as well as a special keepsake to be cherished forever and passed down from generation to generation. Whether you are having a small and intimate elopement, or a large party, Kelsey blends into your day. 

You decide which wedding moment you would like painted (vows, first kiss, first look, first dance, etc.). Kelsey does ask for the artistic freedom once on scene to choose the perfect backdrop based on the venue's highlights. Arrival time is dependent on the moment you choose to have painted. Around 6 hours will be spent at the venue from set-up to break-down. Paintings will be brought home for finishing details, varnish, and then shipped once completed. Destination wedding paintings will be completed prior to leaving town.

Total live painting time ~5 hours and ~5 hours studio time depending on size. If you are a destination wedding, the painting will be completed and give to you the night of the wedding or the day after.


Kelsey enjoys traveling to new places and welcomes couples from all over! She takes all her own gear by car or plane.

Create Your Wedding Collection


Looking for both live entertainment and guest favors? This is it! A crowd pleaser and social media trending, live guest portraits will make a lasting impression on everyone. This is a unique, personalized way to thank your guests for attending any wedding, corporate event, shower, party, or other special occasion.

Kelsey will be set up in the cocktail hour/ reception space taking guests photos and painting them in the that order. It is first come first serve, but every guest will want one, so it is recommended to book for the whole reception time or multiple artists from the agency depending on your guest count. If time runs out in the evening and not all the guests who want a portrait have received one, it can be arranged between artist and guest to have the painting done after and shipped to them. Kelsey can currently complete around 8-10 portraits per hour, and is booked by the hour.

This unique and delicious idea can be used as a gift to a bride, a groom, or from a guest to the couple. The paintings can include venues, people, pets, wedding monogram, engagement spots, and more. The options are endless! Want to make it a pack? Grab your favorite beer, wine, or champagne and have each bottle painted custom for your bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts for the parties or wedding.

First, we decide on the painting composition together. Second, choose your favorite bottle of bubbly and ship it to me. I will then paint the bottle and deliver it with me to the wedding, or you can pick it up from me yourself. 

*** Due to liquor licensing, I can not buy the bottle of champagne myself and sell it to you. The client must buy their own. ***
