LIVE WELL PAINT OFTEN’S AMANDA HAWTHORNE has painted hundreds of weddings since she first launched her business in 2015. Each of these events has been uniquely special, from magical Indian fire dance ceremonies to moonlit nights overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Our favorite part of each night is the reveal at the end of the evening, where we get to show the couple their magical moments captured on canvas.

Having Amanda at our wedding was hands down one of the best decisions we’ve made and an absolute highlight of the reception - we are so thrilled with the final painting! My family and friends were stunned (many had never seen a live painter before), and thought it was such a unique touch to our special day.

Amanda created the most special memory that we will cherish for years to come. She even painted in my husband's late nana, which was so meaningful to us. .

Having a live painter at your wedding is so unique and leaves you with a wonderful memory from the day that you can cherish forever. Amanda painted at both my wedding and my sisters wedding and we both couldn't be happier with her work! I highly recommend Amanda, without reservation. If you're looking for a live painter, look no further!!
