Hi Everyone! I’m Gina Marie Floridia, proud owner of Event Painting with Gina LLC. I truly feel I have the best job in the world, and as I get in front of my easel every night, I’m still incredibly honored I get to preserve your most special moments and incredible love stories. Apart from the couple, I am dedicated to all the little details that make a night worth remembering. The topper on your cake, the party favors sitting on the table, the detail on the linens you chose, that one crystal on the chandelier that made it sparkle just right during your first dance, the props the DJ gave out that now sit on an unused chair, that remind you of that one song that played that night. My goal is to paint all the little things that make up a big celebration! A wedding is such an incredible event, you spend months to years planning for everything to be perfect and that should be shown off as much as the happy couple! Having been a BOLI bride myself a few years ago, I’m fully in tune with all the things brides deal with as they plan and I want to be the easiest part of that for you. I pride myself on being there for brides with a variety of aesthetic styles, budgets, preferences and I have a lot of helpful tips and patience on top of it all. I hope to be able to be apart of your day and paint you a Keepsake that will last generations.

The Wedding Industry

After starting my own wedding planning in 2019, as well as attending many of my friends and families, I started thinking of a way to gift something special to my loved ones. It was only when the world shut down that I had the time to sit-down and reflect and realized what better gift than a painting? There’s something extra special about a painting, you can add loved ones no longer with us, pets, etc. its a different energy, and it’s beautiful. So there I went, painting away for those closest to me. Then, once the world started opening back up the live painting began! Through word of mouth and social media, many couples started reaching out to me to be a part of their special day and its been non stop since! I get to preserve a moment in time, cry during your speeches (Im a hopeless romantic), and paint a piece that depicts the truest of love. It’s absolutely the best job ever.

The Wedding Memories

A wedding I'll never forget was the one I painted for Kaity and Morgan. Never in my life have I been in the presence of such true love and genuine people. The amount of family and friends around them that were just as happy as the couple to finally see their union, it was an energy like no other. They were the first couple to ever cry in reaction to seeing their painting at the end of the night. It made me realize how important what I do is, and I'm so grateful I get to do it everyday. Every couple is extremely special to me, but this one was a turning point for me.


With a degree in The Fine Arts, I specialize in painting from life and photo. Portraits and lighting are my personal favorite to work on. If I’m not at an event you can find me painting in my studio for hours on end (with the help of some cold brew), or doing sensory art projects with my son, the little love of my life!


What medium do you use? I use the best Golden acrylic paints ensuring the best quality and color. How long do you live paint at the event? I arrive 2-3 hours prior to set up my easel and begin ground work. I then stay up until the cake cutting, painting and providing entertainment for you and your guests. When will I get my painting after the event? At the end of the night, I’ll pack up and take the painting back to my studio to really get into all the little details, and to add a protective varnish so the piece can live on for generations! Depending on size of your canvas and whether or not its busy season, you will have your painting within 6-12 weeks! What are your prices? Prices for 2023 vary depending on size and are between $2,000 and $4,000 with canvases between 18x24-30x40. Are you willing to travel? currently as a new mom I'm just sticking to the tristate area, but would absolutely love to venture out in the future! You are not available for my wedding/My wedding has passed, do you take commissions to paint my wedding from photographs? Absolutely! If I have availability I’d love to paint your special day from my studio!

I have wanted a live painter at my wedding and Gina was so wonderful throughout the entire process. She ensured my painting was exactly how I wanted it and included our families in the picture. Her detailing of the flowers, room, dresses is incredible. My painting was ready 6 weeks later and she dropped it off at my door. Thank you Gina you are awesome!

Gina was an absolute dream to work with! We chose to have her paint our first dance. She included personal touches like our neon sign with our last name, a peek out into the vineyard, and really got all the details of our outfits. Our guests loved to stop by her table and see the progress throughout the night.

Amazing quality and attention to detail. A tangible memory of our wedding that will live on. What Gina captured is nothing like a photograph can capture. So happy with our decision to have her do this!

Gina is literally the best vendor we had for our wedding! Aside from her raw talent she is seriously the sweetest and most genuine person. So easy to work with, and really made sure we loved our painting! She was even able to add our little cat into the painting too!!! 10/10 would recommend!

Booking Gina was the best decision we made during wedding planning. All of our guests were in awe while watching her work and couldn’t stop talking about it after. Her work is incredible and she created an irreplaceable piece that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. On top of her amazing work, she is the sweetest person to work with! I can’t recommend her enough!

My parents surprised my husband and I at our reception with Gina. We could not have asked for a more thoughtful, unique, incredible way to capture our first dance. Gina’s talent and personality created a captivating experience for our entire guest list throughout our reception. Her attention to detail is incredible and made for our most treasured keepsake from our wedding day.

Gina is an absolute sweetheart and amazing artist! I was too late in booking Gina for day of services but in her off season, she has packages to paint from a wedding photo. I loved her style so I saved her info until we got our photos back. My husband and I were blown away by her talent and have a unique painting from our wedding photos which combines elements from many photos - not just an exact replica of one photo. I cannot recommend Gina enough!

Heather M.

Wow, Run to Gina people. This was my “over budget” item and I am so glad I spent the money on this and not on a photobooth. Gina is so incredibly sweet, easy to communicate with, and all around amazing to work with. I have never seen a live painter and neither had most of my guests so they really loved this added touch and were blown away by her work by the end of the night.
