What's better than a wedding photographer?

Market research says that there are over 2 Million weddings each year. That's means most of those weddings included a DJ or Band, Wedding Cake, Officiants, Ring Bearers, Ushers, Caterers, Wedding Planners, Photographers, Videographers, Flowers, Party Favors and the list goes on and on. What I am trying to get at is that most weddings these days are very generic, so why not add a little difference to yours and make memories stand out with Live Event Painting?

Nashlorette Paint Your Event

Heidi Schwartz is a well known artist in the Nashville area. She has been "Painting Your Event" for years now and has a cult following on social media such as Facebook and Instagram. You can follow her on instagram @paintyourevent.

Visual art has long been the perfect method of encapsulating a moment. Heidi Schwartz has taken this age-old tradition and applied it to modern events. Using brushes and paint as her quill, Schwartz captures the narratives of weddings, banquets, and corporate events as they take place. The charm and elegance of a live painter both creates ambiance and provides guests with a topic of cultural conversation. Paintings are gifted to the bride and groom or CEO as a memento that is timeless and totally unique. Schwartz's interpretive creativity has enriched events from 5 star hotels to the warmth of the family living room.
