We were lucky enough to have Nicolette as our live painter for our wedding! This is something I wanted from the start but wasn’t sure if it would be in my budget with all the wedding costs. About a month out before our wedding I saw Nicolette’s work on TCIS Instagram and I thought it looked amazing. I made a deal with myself and thought no way she is available for a wedding a month out but if by graces she is available I’m booking her and going for it.
I reached out to her and she was very quick with communication and luckily she was available! I have to admit once I saw her pricing I was skeptical to go through with it. Fast forward to the day of and she truly was the cherry on top of our wedding. We received so many compliments from wedding guests on how she let them paint our painting and everyone was blown away by her. My now husband even says it was his favorite part of our wedding vendors and he’s so happy we booked her.
The compliments keep rolling in and I have no regrets booking her one bit. She is WORTH it all and is so professional and talented! She also was able to add in our dog to our painting which I loved! This painting is so special to us as well as the experience she gave our guests. If your looking for something to wow your guests or to have as memorabilia this would be great!
She is everything and more and I will continue to use her for all our future painting needs! Thank you so much Nicolette!

I cannot recommend Nicolette enough! As my husband and I were going through the wedding process we wanted to add a unique touch to our wedding and have something that our guests could get involved with. As soon as I saw her artwork on Instagram I just knew I had to book her for our wedding. She responded quickly and answered any and all questions I had.
Fast forward to our wedding day and I was blown away to see our first kiss turned into a gorgeous piece of art (she even added our dog!). Our guest absolutely loved watching her paint throughout the night and thought it was amazing that they could help with the painting. Our wedding was a few weeks ago and the biggest compliment we get is how amazing Nicolette is and how beautiful the painting turned out!
I cannot recommend Nic for her live wedding painting enough! As a surprise gift for my fiance/husband, I coordinated with Nic to fly all the way to Chicago to paint our first kiss on our special day.
She was incredibly easy to work with and coordinate with, let alone incredibly sweet. She absolutely crushed our painting, all of our guests were in awe and still are talking about it! She even took it a step further and allowed guests to contribute to the painting. The reveal is something I'll never forget. Such a special memory she has created for us.

Having Nic paint our first kiss at our wedding was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We put in a last-minute inquiry to her only 10 days before our wedding, and she could not have been more responsive, excited, and thoughtful. On the big day, she went above and beyond our expectations. She blended right in with our small, intimate wedding, and quickly felt like family.
The way she included our guests in our painting was so fun, and meant so much to everybody involved. Her work draws you in and she is such a treat to watch in action. One thing that touched all of our hearts was the little red cardinal painted in the trees, meant to represent my wife's late grandmother. The sweetest moment was when we finally got to reveal this little surprise to my mother-in-law... lots of happy tears were shed! The personal touches she is willing to add make all of the difference.
We can't thank Nic enough not only for how amazing our painting turned out, but also for her joyful presence and incredibly professional service. We will be recommending her to anybody we can for years to come. We will treasure her art in our home forever.

By pure happenstance, we found Nicolette on instagram a mere 6 weeks prior to the big day. One phone call and a deposit later, she was booking her flight to her first trip to Pennsylvania.
We loved Nic’s energy, curiosity, and sense of adventure. She captured the perfect moment after the ceremony and really went the extra mile to capture our family. Our guests were super impressed by her and loved that she invited them to paint with her throughout the event. Nic is easy to work with and a hidden gem in the live painting industry!
We feel so lucky to have caught her at the beginning of her wedding painting career. We highly recommend her to anyone willing to listen. Nicolette has an unprecedented talent and the painting helps keep alive one of the most special moments in our relationship. Thank you, Nicolette!

Nicolette was one of the best parts of our wedding! We really wanted to have a live painter and did a lot of research before finding her. I was so impressed by her talent just following along on her Instagram, but when she painted our aisle exit at our wedding, I was just speechless. Not only does it really look like us, but it was so fun seeing our guests paint too!
Nicolette is also so kind and upbeat, and knew exactly what our vision was for the painting after chatting on the phone before our wedding. We moved into a new house and our wedding painting was the first thing we hung up. I smile every time I walk past it and will forever be thankful for Nicolette bringing this special day to life through art for us!

I had the pleasure of having Nicolette attend my wedding recently in Santa Barbara. I connected with her after mentioning in passing that I wanted to look into a live painter. After having a phone call with her I knew she was someone who I would click with! She scheduled multiple phone calls to understand my vision and get reference photos for my dress and dogs (who obviously had to be included).
What I underestimated was just how much my guests would love watching and interacting with Nicolette. They were impressed with her talent and she let them put a few paint strokes in. In the days following we are still hearing how awesome Nicolette was and I couldn't agree more!
