Katherine Gressel
Amber and Matt's Wedding at Belle Mer Island House, Newport, RI
2012
Acrylic on Canvas
22" X 28"
The bride and groom requested that I show not only the reception in the indoor tented area of the Belle Mer Island House, but the beautiful view outside of the scenic Pell Bridge in Newport. I captured the outdoor view first as the sun was setting, then focused on the vibrantl dance party, with special attention to the bride and groom, mother of the bride (far left), maid of honor (who gave the painting as a gift), and best man.

Most of the painting was completed at the event, with minor touch-ups in the hotel room. The final painting was presented to enthusiastic guests at brunch the following morning.
