  • W hired Mark for the live painting at our reception in August 2019! We are so happy with the painting Mark has created for us and our family. It really captured the best moment of the night. The detail in each person and background is incredible! He is a gifted and talented artist and we were so delighted to have the opportunity to work with him. One of the best decisions we made planning the wedding. We definitely will be requesting his services in the future and recommend his work to anybody in the search of a talented live painter.

  • This was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding - it was a gift and a show all in one! Mark did a fantastic job not only capturing our first dance moment, but also day of on our wedding day he chatted with guests who were so interested in this live painting! Mark was so awesome afterwards as well checking in with us and sending us photo updates of how the painting was finishing up. Can't wait to hang this! LOVE!!!!"

  • Our wedding was held at the lovely Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, Rhode Island on October 20, 2018. After learning about live painting from a friend, my husband and I knew that we wanted a painting to capture our first dance as a momento and it turned out beautiful. Mark was able to capture the entire wedding party and all of our guests loved watching him work throughout the entire evening. Make, thank you for adding a special touch to our wedding day!

  • Mark did an amazing job on the painting for my daughter and son-in-law. Every part of this transaction went smoothly and professionally. I plan on having him paint for my other daughters when they get married. It was such a special gift that they will always treasure.

  • This was by far one of the best choices I could have made for my wedding day. From the moment I first contacted Mark, to the moment he hand delivered my painting to my moms house the day before thanksgiving!!! I can not say enough about this experience. My family and friends loved watching Mark paint, he captured my first dance with my husband perfectly. And even painted in family members around us. My husband and I just had the painting framed, and We are in love. It is a great piece for our home, a wonderful reminder of our special day, and Mark and his wife are a great team. A true pleasure to work with and My husband and I would recommend them to anyone!!! So beautiful, worth every penny. Thank you doesn't even begin the express our gratitude.

  • I surprised my daughter with the gift of Mark DeSilva at their wedding who captured their 1st dance together outside with his tremendous talent as an artist. They didn't know Mark was going to be there and the look on their faces when they saw his easel set up was more exciting than we had imagined. The oil painting was incredibly done, capturing their features and expression, her dress and the surroundings of the Aldrich Mansion. It hangs in their bedroom now and will be a lifelong addition to the memory of a very special day. They were thrilled with the finished piece, as were both my husband and myself. Mark and Anna were great to work with, a truly kind and warm couple who seemed so intent on making sure that the bride especially was happy with the gift of his talent. I would highly recommend Mark DeSilva and his work for a wedding or any other special time within your life...a timeless gift that grows more meaningful.

  • Add a piece of luxury to your wedding for an affordable price! Mark painted our first dance at our September 2015 wedding at The Dorrance in Providence, RI. Mark's wife, Anna, the studio manager, was quick to respond to email inquiries and the booking process and the contract was very easy. Our completed painting is gorgeous and is a beautiful piece for us to admire for years to come! Many guests told me after the wedding, how much they enjoyed chatting with Mark throughout the night as he was painting. Mark was very accommodating and flexible, when we wanted to add people to the final version. Highly recommend!

  • First and foremost, Mark is an amazing talent. A custom oil portrait, done live at my wedding, of me and my husband, was something I thought I never would have been able to afford. After searching, I found Mark, and needless to say, I am really impressed with what I got. I was in contact with Mark and his wife Ana, for over a year before my event. They were forthcoming in answering all of my questions, and very receptive to my ideas. I booked them a year out. Mark's services are very affordable, and to help matters, payment for services rendered are broken down into three payments. 1/3 due on deposit, 1/3+Travel fee (extremely reasonable) due on event day, and 1/3 due upon delivery. To choose a painting, you go through Mark's portfolio and choose a style you like. About a week before my wedding Ana contacted me to make sure of the type of painting I wanted. I had chosen a long shot of my venue, meaning guests would not be able to see Mark work. I asked Ana if we could change to have ... Read more

  • Where do I began with Mark??? Words' can't describe how amazing Mark is...My mom saw something on tv about live wedding painting and knew I had to have it at my wedding.....My reception was held at Black Rock Country Club in Hingham...Mark set up in the corner before we arrived and had all the details done of our wedding, every single person at our wedding said how beautiful the painting was before it was complete...After we got back from our honeymoon, my husband had decided he wanted to add his Dad who had passed away two years ago in the photo...I emailed Mark and Anna, and they gladly accommodated the request...I emailed them pictures of my husbands dad, and it looks as if he was at our wedding watching us during our first dance...If you are looking for something unique that you will have forever you will not go wrong with Mark..He is amazing!

  • Our wedding was held at my grandmother's beautiful ocean front house on Cape Cod, and we wanted to give her a meaningful thank you gift. After hearing about live event painting through a friend, I knew a painting of the event would be the perfect memento. I searched the New England area for painters and was lucky enough to find Mark and he was available on our day! I did not have an exact idea of what I wanted him to paint, but once he arrived and scouted the area, he came up with a creative and beautiful idea of painting the house with a reflection of the ocean and lighthouse in the windows. It was so fun to have them at our wedding, all of our guests loved observing the painting. Mark and Anna were amazing to work with and very responsive! Their pricing was incredibly reasonable for the quality and skill involved. I would highly recommend Mark for any special occasion!

  • My husband and I were searching for a live event painter, and we spent a lot of time researching to find someone who met the style which we were looking for. When we came across Mark's paintings, and his Facebook page, we realized that Mark would be the person who would paint our first dance at our wedding. From our initial contact, Mark and Anna were open to communication, and to hear the ideas we envisioned for our first dance. Upon signing our contract, we discussed our musts, as well as what we wanted to see within our painting. When Mark arrived at our wedding hall and I saw all the detail he had already accomplished, I knew that we were getting everything that we had hoped. Mark completely painted our vision, what we wanted from our initial research. It was very hard to find someone who made such a beautiful, clear, and accurate portrait of a live action shot, and Mark's portrayal was absolutely perfect. We are in love with our painting, and we cannot express how thankful ... Read more
