Bridget and Myles’ finished first dance wedding painting

We celebrated Bridget and Myles as our first wedding of 2020, and it really set the tone for an amazing year.  Jamie was so excited when Bridget’s mother, Pat, got in touch with us to see if we were available for Bridget and Myles’ big day.  Jamie has such fond memories of learning to paint professionally at his alma mater, Ringling College of Art and Design, which is just a few minutes away from Bridget and Myles’ venue!  Suffice it to say that creating a Sarasota live painting has been on Jamie’s bucket list for some time, and we were so excited for Bridget and Myles’ wedding to be our first Sarasota wedding!

Bridget and Myles’ first dance ended with a fun dip, which Jamie captured in their first dance wedding painting!

When Jamie first spoke to Bridget about what she was looking or in her painting, she let Jamie know that she and Myles were planning a dip at the end of their first dance that she hoped could be captured.  Jamie was excited for this unique pose and was able to incorporate Bridget and Myles dipping front and center in their painting!

Bridget got to add her own personal touch to her wedding painting!

New for 2020, we’ve added a fun option for all of our weddings!  Couples now have the opportunity to add a few brush strokes to their painting to add their personal seal to their painting.  We think our brides and grooms will really love this new tradition, and we were so excited when Bridget agreed to be our inaugural guest artist!

Bridget had such a sweet reaction when she saw her painting for the first time at her reception!

From their sweet dog Maggie to their families’ touching toasts, Bridget and Myles had such a special day that we were so honored to be able to take part in.  Congratulations you two!
