The latest trend in wedding keepsakes puts your big day on canvas. An artist paints a moment in time during your wedding—while the event is happening. “It’s great because it’s interactive,” says event planner Ivy Robinson of Ivy Robinson Events; an artist painted a live portrait of a recent wedding she planned at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina. “Couples walk away with not only a keepsake but a piece of art for their new home together as husband and wife,” Robinson says.
