When it comes to weddings, every couple dreams of creating an unforgettable
experience that not only reflects their love story but also leaves a lasting impression on
their guests. In the pursuit of unique and personalized wedding trends, the spotlight has
turned to a mesmerizing and artistic concept: Live Wedding Painters. These talented
artists skillfully capture the essence of a couple's special day on canvas, creating a
masterpiece that immortalizes the celebration in a truly remarkable way.
One Particular Wedding Painter, Olivia Andruss, has been live painting since October 2021. While it very first started just as a favor for a friend, she really fell in love with the whole experience of delivering such a unique keepsake to couples. Olivia really enjoys
how the feelings and overall atmosphere of the day impacts her as an artist and that
same emotion can be felt when looking at the finished product.
An interesting fact about her business is that she is the only live wedding painter in
Colorado to switch from a background in 2D animation and digital art into the world of fine art and painted portraits!
Her favorite part of working a wedding is the LOVE!!! The couple’s vows, the people there to celebrate and support them just really touches her heart and brings her romantic heart so much joy that these people have found their person, and that true love can conquer the day.
Live wedding painting is a form of live event artistry that beautifully blends creativity and
wedding festivities. As the event unfolds, the live wedding painter transforms the scene
into a work of art, right before the eyes of the attendees. Every brushstroke captures not
just the visual details, but the emotions, atmosphere, and ambiance of the moment. The
result is an artistic time capsule that freezes cherished moments in time.
