Grand Velas Riviera Maya Pressroom
Nov 12Riviera Maya, Mexico (November 11, 2014)- hrough an exclusive partnership with Antología by Fornari, Mexico's AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Resorts in Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit now offer couples live wedding paintings, a tradition of European aristocracy for more than three centuries. Live event painting acts as a performance show while capturing time-honored details and emotions - the very essence of the occasion - on a fine canvas for a high-quality piece of art to last beyond a lifetime. In addition to selecting the preferred canvas shape and size, and either oil or acrylic paint, couples then select an artist from a specific style, including impressionist or expressionist and abstract or surrealist. Prior to the wedding, couples meet with their artist to determine who and what to include in their painting. During the event, the artist begins by painting the basic elements of the scene and continues by capturing wedding moments and attendees in natural positions as they unfold. Based on the number of characters selected to appear in the canvas, the painting is delivered up to three to four days (minimal characters) or six months (16-18 characters) after the event. The cost of live wedding paintings start at $3,000 USD. For more information on weddings at Velas Resorts, please call (866) 868-0922 or visit www.velasweddings.com. For more than ten years Antología by Fornari, led by entrepreneur Luis de Potestad Clemens, Count of San Bartolome de Jala, has been painting live at weddings and other special events for the elite. Everyone from presidents and the Royal Family of Spain, to Fortune 500 businessmen have partaken in the experience.
