Katherine Gressel
Derek and Jill's Wedding at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, NJ
2011
Acrylic on Canvas
24" X 36"
Painted entirely onsite at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, NJ, and presented as a gift to the bride and groom at the end of the reception. I arrived early to sketch and paint in the background from a balcony overlooking the dance floor. By the time the reception began, I was able to focus on capturing specific portraits of the bride, groom, and family members, as well as the excitement of the crowded room.

"Thank you so much for painting our brother's wedding. You truly were able to capture the magic of this special evening. Your precise details and professionalism were a pleasure to work with. We were ecstatic how the end result came out and know it was the perfect present to give to the bride and groom. They will hang it in their living room for all to see!"
- Dana Slivka, sister of the groom
