Three words: LIVE. EVENT. PAINTING. 

Have any of you ladies planning your wedding (or dreaming about it) thought, “How can I make my wedding stand out from the rest?”? Well I know I had that thought and plenty of my friends too.  It’s a hard balance because you want your wedding to be a reflection of you and your groom and a celebration of your new union but weddings can get repetitive… How can you shake it up while still keeping it classic? One aspect to think about including that is incredibly unique and elegant is a live event painting. Basically this is what it sounds like, a professional artist comes to your wedding and sets up a station to paint a scene of your event in live action. This is an INCREDIBLY SPECIAL PIECE OF LIVE ART, a beautiful watercolor keepsake to get to take back and hang in your new home, and to keep forever and ever amen. Also, I don’t know if you have ever had the pleasure of watching someone paint but it is quite mesmerizing. Watching an artist at work would be a great entertainment option for those guests who have two left feet or need a little break before getting a slice of cake. 

S. Arias Creates is our vendor partner who offers this incredible service to brides (and of course gives our Engaged brides a special discount). She is truly an artist and has a talent for capturing special moments in a painting that you will treasure forever. 

Watch her at work in this highlight video from the Engaged Collective’s vendor Team Alix!
