Several weeks ago, I was lucky enough to cover a wedding of fantastical grandeur (which I’ll post in a couple of weeks).  One of Lindsey and Steve’s amazing ideas (actually, the brilliant idea belonged to Lindsey’s mother, Linda) was to commission Agnes Csiszar to paint their wedding reception as it was taking place.  YES! How amazing is that?!

Several hours prior to the reception, Csiszar starts with a sketch of the room.  As the evening unfolds, she incorporates the scenes and events she sees, working them into her composition.

In spite of being stationed in the corner of the Georgian ballroom, Csiszar somehow managed to capture all the nuances of the celebration.  She got Lindsey and Steve’s posture, the petal-like layers of Lindsey’s gown, and their overflowing love and happiness.

This is the final version of Csiszar’s painting that Lindsey and Steve will have as a keepsake of their wedding.

Agnes, it was wonderful and inspiring to work with you!  If anybody is interested in finding out more about Agnes Csiszar, her website is http://www.eventpaintingsbyagnes.com
