Katherine Gressel
Janine and John's wedding at Il Cortile Restaurant, NYC
2010
Acrylic on canvas
24" X 36"
At this small, festive December wedding at Il Cortile restaurant in Little Italy, I arrived early in the afternoon to start painting the dining room background before guests arrived. I completed the painting at the end of the evening, with specific portraits of the bride, groom, both sets of parents, and the bride's young son, as requested.

"My husband and I have had the pleasure to work with Katherine by having her paint a portrait of our Wedding Day. Our guests were entertained the entire time and truly enjoyed watching our portrait come alive by the end of the night. Katherine was personable and we were impressed by her professionalism and talent. The live painting was exactly what we were looking for to make our Wedding Day special and memorable. We cherish our painting and hope to work with Katherine again in the future."
