Reviews Of Willow Ridge


A non-refundable deposit of $500 & signed contract is required to reserve your date for live painting services. All custom painting commissions done in studio require a 50% deposit. Due to high demand it is recommended to book as early as possible especially for peak Texas wedding season in the Fall. Availability is not guaranteed but in the event I am already booked, please inquire about my custom commissions from photographs.

A few weeks prior to your event, I will consult with you about the final details of the big day, including final timeline, floor plans, decor, and all the details that you would like incorporated in the scene. Upon consultation I will create a mock sketch for you to approve the final layout of your painting.

The day of your event I will arrive 2-3 hours prior to the ceremony start to set up and begin painting.

I will paint on site live at your event for approximately 5-10 hours depending on the size of the canvas and the level of detail chosen.

Your live Wedding Painting will be 80-95% complete by the end of the event. I will complete additional details in studio and the finished painting will be available for pick up or shipping 6-12 weeks after your event. For the exception of Clients purchasing greeting cards, they will have their paintings will have an expedited completion of 2-4 weeks post event.

Some venues such as Churches will not allow for a live artist to paint in the interior. In such cases there are limitations at a ceremony site, I will take reference photos of the ceremony and paint live at the reception. Please designate a 5’x5’ space at the reception with access to an electrical outlet and extra chair. To maintain the top quality of your artwork, outdoor painting spaces can be designated if weather conditions are not rainy, not excessively windy, not in direct sun with over a 90 degree temperature, or in temperatures below 50 degrees.

The full balance for live painting services will be due 1 week prior to your event. All custom painting commissions must be paid for in full upon the paintings completion before delivery

Due to high demand, ALL deposits & money paid towards your painting is non-refundable. If you wish to cancel services, you may use any funds paid towards your live painting service towards a future event or custom commission done in studio.

Gretchen is an absolute dream to work with. To say she went above and beyond for my clients is an understatement. She worked long hours and always made sure to keep us happy in the midst of stressful times. We were all impressed at our consultation with her knowledge, quality of work, and the affordability of her products. We were thrilled with the end result, and as a wedding planner, I will definitely recommend her to future brides.

Gretchen recently helped me with an invitation for an event that needed a quick turn around. She was responsive and invitations were on time. When I approached her, I didn’t have a clue what I wanted or needed. I shared my vibe and end result desired. Gretchen provided me with a design that was timeless yet on trend all at the same time. It was exactly what I didn’t know I needed.

Gretchen was absolutely wonderful. When I called to schedule the appointment, she asked me to email some pictures of what I liked and when I arrived she had marked samples to show based on my taste. Within 30 minutes I had picked the design and colors. The invites were so beautiful my family talked about them for months before the wedding, my aunt even took hers to work to show off to her colleagues! As a bride who over analyzed every aspect of my wedding planning, Gretchen was a lifesaver and a time saver! I am very happy we went with her and recommend her to everyone.

Gretchen and her team are always up for a challenge and I seem to throw a lot of challenges her way (I’m a planner!). Her designs are spot on, products are superior and her boutique shop is adorable! Pricing is great and Gretchen tries very hard to meet all reasonable budgets! She’s the best!!
