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. Hire Courtney and And go big! The more space for beautiful brushstrokes and detail the better.

After our first call I could tell you were super genuine and would do everything you could to make the painting perfect!
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.

"Courtney is the perfect combination of professionalism, kindness, creativity and entertainment."
She arrives on time, comes with her own setup and will be as interactive or tucked away as you would like. She creates amazing, detailed pieces that can be hung in your home for many years to come. At the last wedding we had with Courtney, she had little girls lining up to watch her paint and ask her questions!
