    Our wedding

    Emily was beyond professional with us. Everyone loved the idea of a live painter and she did a magnificent job. She got every detail in there and the end result was the most amazing. I would definitely encourage other future brides and grooms to have a live painter.

    Emily Paints Events's reply:

    Thank you Shannon for having me attend your reception! It was my first time at Block 3 Brewing and it was such a fun reception space, I'm so glad you love your artwork and it was a pleasure working with you!

    Incredibly talented and professional!

    Emily is such a talent. We had her at our wedding on Sept 7th to live paint our first dance. All correspondence leading up to the event was polite, courteous, and punctual. She was totally on the ball and it filled me with confidence that she was going to be a professional on the day. She was such a perfect addition to our wedding- she set up to the side of our hall but was still very visible so our guests could watch and interact with her. While I could go on and on about her 'in event' professionalism and courteous, the painting she created for us was outstanding. Her attention to detail in capturing both myself and my husband, as well as the detail she gave our parents makes it without a doubt our favourite wedding memory. We had a very significant family member who was not able to attend our day and with the help of some reference pictures, she painted him in with stunning likeness.

    For couples looking for an interesting and unique addition to your day, with the benefit of being able to take home an incredibly special memento from your day should look no further. Emily is your person!

    A must have keepsake of our wedding!

    Emily was absolutely amazing to work with! Her painting captured every detail of the night perfectly. We feel so fortunate to have such a unique piece of art to display to remember our wedding. I highly recommend hiring Emily for your wedding or any other event to have a truly one of a kind keepsake.

Artist

I can't remember the morning I woke up and decided I was going to be an artist. I've just always been one. I'm a big believer in true love and I'm all for the romantics. So naturally, I paint love stories.

I have spent the last 20 years drawing, painting, and developing my artistic style. There is nothing more rewarding to me than being able to capture a memory and the emotion of it in the form of fine artwork.
