I'M McKenzie!

Enter live wedding painting, one thing you can count on to make your wedding memorable both for you and for your guests. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the essence of your wedding will be skillfully painted in real time. Imagine walking down the aisle knowing that you will have a completely unique and stunning piece of art to remember this moment forever. Your guests get to watch from start to finish, and they will be talking about this for years to come! Live wedding painting adds a touch of elegance and uniqueness to your special day, and provides you with a tangible and timeless memento that you can cherish for a lifetime.

Weddings are wonderful! But let's face it, wedding planning can be pretty overwhelming. From choosing the perfect venue to coordinating vendors, you're making decisions about every last detail. The pressure to create a memorable and flawless event can leave you stressed and anxious. Between the countless decisions you have to make, it can be challenging to focus on what matters most. 


After putting so much thought into your wedding day, the last thing you want is to spend the day worried about how you're going to capturing the magic of your once-in-a-lifetime moment. My own wedding day felt like it went so quickly, I hardly had time to even look at everything I'd so carefully planned! 

A Treasured Keepsake

Besides your new spouse, there aren't many things you have to hold onto after your special day has come and gone. Your wedding painting can hang in your home and be passed down for generations! 

Your guests will be enthralled as they watch your painting come to life from start to finish! They are more than welcome to come talk with me as I work, and maybe even paint a stroke or two! 

Before your wedding, we will talk all about your vision for your painting! I want to know about your love story, your wedding style, and all of the details and moments that are most important to you.

"Mckenzie was AMAZING!! I was so excited to have her at our reception. She asked thorough questions before the day so she knew what vibe I wanted to go for, and she completely nailed it. It was so fun to go and see what she was doing during the reception, and my husband and I were completely floored seeing the final painting. It’s STUNNING and I can’t wait to hang it in our home. What a perfect gift to have for the rest of our life, a moment in time from the best day ever!"

you might be wondering...

What type of paint/materials do you use?

After the event, I add a layer of UV protectant varnish to keep your painting looking beautiful as time goes on!

I paint with oils - I love the texture, shine, and "painterly" feel they have!

I use linen canvas because of its smoothness and durability over time.

What options do I have for what my painting will look like?

This is the fun part - we can be creative! Many couples choose to have their ceremony or first dance painted.

If you have a pose or photo you love, I can use that with your venue as the background. 

Your painting can be simple, or we can include whatever special details you'd like!

Do you require any special setup from the venue?

All I need is a space of about 4 x 6 square feet to set up. I will bring my own portable easel and materials!

Depending on the venue and timing, I will come to set up an hour or two before the event so that I can set up and begin my sketch.

We can work together to find a space where I am not in the way, but available for guests to watch.

As a special touch, I also love to bring flowers to place on my easel that match your event! 

Can I request to have more people (or pets) in my painting?

Yes! This is one thing that makes a live wedding painting extra special. I will paint up to four additional people or pets for no charge.

Can you paint my ceremony, even though it is short?

Ceremonies make beautiful paintings! If you'd like your ceremony painted, I will need to arrive early so that I can paint the background. I will  take reference photos, then continue the painting throughout the reception.

Do you offer live guest portraits?

When will we receive our painting?

After the wedding, I take the painting to my home studio to add finishing touches, then varnish it with UV protectant coating. I will hand deliver it to you if you are local, or ship it to you within two weeks.

Can you paint from a photograph?

Yes! I offer bouquet paintings, as well as custom paintings for your save-the-dates, thank-you cards, keepsakes, or gifts, starting at $300.

I have another question . . . 

Send me a message and I'd love to talk about all of your ideas! Each wedding is so unique and I want your painting to reflect YOU and your love story!
