You were so lovely and kind and thoughtful and generous and patient and sweet. The list goes on but it was really wonderful to feel like you were genuinely excited for us and our wedding day – this is the type of energy a couple planning/ remembering their wedding should be surrounded by.
My favorite part was watching the painting come to life throughout the night! It was so fun checking in every so often to see what new details had been added. I also love that we can pick out our moms and certain family members in the painting. I still can't get over how good the colors look, and how many details (like the cake spacer!) you were able to add.

*layered brushstrokes, capturing light, movement, and feeling of your wedding day, while being authentic to the location, aesthetic, and vision of you and your wedding
They all raised their eyebrows when Courtney set up her easel at that first wedding, but then she started painting, and they couldn't get over seeing the bride and groom's love story come to life through watercolor.
And bonus, there weren't any phones in the painting.

That is exactly why this painting is so important.
And when it comes to telling your exquisite love story through watercolor, Courtney does it better than anyone else with an intentionally crafted high-touch process that takes your aesthetic and vision, and turns it into reality.
This is more than just a painting.
REAL TALK: YOU CAN'T FAKE THIS LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE AND COMPETENCY.
Every element, from capturing the dress details to the emotion and feeling of your day, of your painting is carefully composed. Look back on your wedding day 20 years later, share it with your loved ones, and feel that it was timeless.
Over the years, Courtney has found that every celebration is different and comes with its own set of needs. For this reason, all quotes are made on an individual basis. Courtney creates custom proposals for clients based on what they want and need. Full service collections begin at $5,000, but contact Courtney for a more specific outline of your investment.
The quality of my work is guaranteed. If your clients don't see the work they want, I'll fix it.
Because, you could do the same thing everyone else is doing, hire the fine art photographer and videographer, get your wedding published in Over the Moon, and then leave your beautiful photos tucked away in a beautiful album, in a USB drive, or on your Instagram feed.
You get all of that AND work with an artist one-on-one to curate your entire wedding day into a one-of-a-kind original heirloom. A tangible heirloom that evokes the feelings of your wedding day, watch it painted live in front of you and your guests...
...then quickly receive, frame, and hang your painting, show it to your children and grandchildren, and cherish it forever.
"Wow, this is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing this. You are amazing!"
