I don’t think they knew at the time, but Megan & Blake were the first couple to book with me! Because of that I wanted to make their live wedding painting the perfect depiction of their marriage to one another. When we first spoke on the phone they told me of their plans to have a Halloween themed wedding with Harry Potter elements and I was all for it!
When I was planning out their wedding painting I asked them to send me some of their favorite engagement photos. I’m pretty sure that they sent me their entire engagement album, which was a treat because it helped me get an even better idea of how they interact with each other. They each had their favorite poses of themselves, so I used that to create their bride and groom pose.
Their ceremony and reception took place at the Historic Longview Mansion, an adorable wedding venue just outside of Kansas City! This was a destination wedding for me so I took full advantage of the opportunity to see Kansas City and soaked in the wedding. One of my favorite parts was getting to see how excited Megan was before she walked down the aisle. She planned a surprise for Blake to walk out to the Harry Potter score and it went flawlessly!
Needless to say, the happiness they and their families shared made me want to make their painting amazing. After a few hours of painting and talking with all of their guests their painting came to life. I’m so happy with how it turned out and so were they!
Here’s to many years of happiness Megan & Blake!
