You’ll often hear photographers say that your wedding images are all you have left once the big day is over. I’m here to tell you that’s not entirely true. There are actually several unique & creative ways to preserve the beautiful details and beautiful moments from your wedding (resin bouquet, anyone?). One of my personal favorites is hiring a live wedding painter. Yep, it’s an actual thing! For all my artsy couples out there—you’ve already put a ton of thought into the details & overall aesthetic of your day. Imagine how awesome it would be to have that aesthetic captured in a painting—a medium with an entirely different kind of beauty than photography. Now, this isn’t to say that you shouldn’t invest in quality wedding photos; this is simply to share another super-cool way to document the parts of your day you never want to forget. This is also a chance for you to get to know Bethany Browne, a Connecticut-based wedding painter who’s absolutely FANTASTIC at what she does. Bethany is my go-to recommendation for couples who want a live painting of their wedding reception in Boston, Providence, or anywhere in New England, and I’m so excited to share her story with you!

As someone with a natural love for weddings and a love for painting (not to mention an incredible talent for it), becoming a live event painter just made sense to Bethany. Her impressionist style also lends itself beautifully to weddings; it “captures both the feeling and the visual impressions of the moment,” she explained. She’s been traveling all over CT, MA, and RI for three years now to share her amazing artistry with couples on their big day. Similar to wedding photographs, Bethany’s paintings are timeless and eternal. “I love capturing the joy of a moment and creating an heirloom painting that will be part of the family’s memories of that special day,” she shared with me. And with several jam-packed years of wedding experience under her belt, you can count on Bethany to flawlessly recreate whatever moments are most important to you. I say “moments,” plural, because she can actually complete up to 3 paintings per wedding!

“I have a satisfaction guarantee,” Bethany explained. “I try to go above and beyond for each of my couples.”

The time, energy, talent, and focus it takes to paint an intimate scene while a huge event is happening all around you is impressive on its own. But Bethany takes things one step further by really making sure each and every couple gets exactly what they’re looking for.

If you want to fill your home with unique, stunning artwork by a local independent artist, and just happen to be getting married, reach out to Bethany sooner rather than later. She has quickly become one of New England’s most in-demand live event painters, and you do NOT want to miss the chance to have her at your Mystic, Providence, or Boston wedding reception.
