Trend Alert: Live Painters at Your Wedding!

Goodbye caricature artists and hello live painters!  What a fantastic trend among us; this is one that I hope stays around for a long time.  I have seen my fair share of quirky caricature artists at weddings and don’t get me wrong, they are a fun touch.  However, the idea of hiring an artist to capture the action and the little moments is just priceless.  In a culture where we are becoming more and more fascinated with the past and all things vintage, it seems like a fitting trend.  I am not hating on this in ANY way!  I think it is a fantastic keepsake from your wedding.  Something that you can be proud to hang in your new house together as art!

Enjoy and happy planning!
