live painting

We knew when we were getting married that we wanted a live event painting to help us remember our special day. Her excitement about the opportunity made it so easy to plan. She met with us in advance to discuss what we were looking for in the painting and gladly incorporated each of our requests while using her talent, creativity, and style to make it beautiful and original. We were thrilled with the finished product and admire it each day in our home. Our wedding day was perfect in almost every way, and having Mary there to paint is very close to the top of the list.

Once we spoke with Mary and saw some of her work, we wanted her to be a part of the day. She was quick to respond, and very accommodating with the schedule. We love looking at this amazing piece of art hanging in our home.I would recommend Mary time and time again. Her service was top notch and she listened to our ideas for what we wanted and made it a reality.

We can't stop thinking about what a perfect night our wedding was, and having it at Fernbank with you live painting had a lot to do with that! Thank you for working with us on the little details. We've already found the perfect spot to hang it in our new home. Thank you for giving us our happy memory in art form to look at and enjoy every day. We would truly recommend you to anyone getting married in Atlanta. 


Mary live painted our wedding reception as a surprise gift for my parents. We are so thrilled with how she captured our special day and my parents love the beautiful and unique gift. Our guests also enjoyed watching her paint during our reception, which brought a special element to the event. Mary is so talented and a joy to work with from start to finish! We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with her!

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Mary. As we continued to chat, and get to know one another, I became aware of her artwork and the talent that she is. We moved into a new home this year, and I instantly thought of Mary when we were looking to commission a local artist.  She patiently listened to our ideas and amazingly brought our visions to life.  I can’t say enough about Mary and her ability to visualize what we had in our mind.  That is often hard to accomplish, and at no time did she buck at our ideas or our suggestions.  She was always willing to make adjustments, and did so with a smile on her face.  If you are looking for a talented artist, that is more than delightful to work with, you don’t want to miss an opportunity to have a piece of her art in your home.  We truly cherish her art pieces, and will spend a lifetime enjoying her talent.

We would and have recommended her without hesitation. Her work hangs in a prominent place in our home where we see and enjoy it multiple times daily. We loved the loose style and use of color. Her excitement and passion for her work and willingness to customize the piece [made us happy working with her].

We were looking for something special for my in-laws’ 50th wedding anniversary and Mary was able to create a beautiful, special, and sentimental portrait of them.  It’s the perfect portrait and we cannot wait to give it to them.  Mary is beyond talented and easy to work with.  She kept us updated throughout her timely process and we couldn’t be happier with her process and the final piece.  Her artwork is unique, beautiful, and special.

We booked with Love Louise Designs because Mary encouraged a sit-down meeting so she could capture the style and vision for the wedding and she listened to our daughter’s ideas and created a lovely and unique design just for her. The happiest part was stuffing the beautiful envelopes with the invitations: each time we picked up an envelope to stuff we kept saying, “these are so beautiful!” Who knew stuffing envelopes could be so fun! We would absolutely recommend Love, Louise Designs – the addition of Mary’s calligraphy is icing on the cake: her artistic ability, care for the bride’s vision and attention to detail is superb!

I first heard about Love, Louise Designs after I ordered my wedding invitations from Paper Source at Lenox. Mary came highly recommended as an Atlanta calligrapher. I booked Love, Louise Designs based on her talent and impressive portfolio. Her attention to detail and work is second to none! I initially worked with Mary to address my wedding invitations. She then designed my wedding program and painted my wedding portrait! She is an absolute joy to work with and a truly talented artist. I would absolutely recommend Love, Louise Designs to a friend, as well as a stranger! Take a peek at her Instagram feed to see her work. You will not regret it!
