"I had the pleasure of having Joan Zylkin, Philadelphia based artist, paint portraits of my marriage ceremony. It was the perfect way to capture such a special moment and something we will be able to enjoy forever. I highly recommend her, and our guests are still talking about her and how amazing she is"    Olivia Meyer


"I had a wedding painter at my wedding and it was one of the best aspects of the whole day. She was set up right at the end of the aisle and really fit into the whole ambience (ground floor of an old mill, baroque chamber group playing, soft uplighting, the sound of running water in the background). She painted the scene while we were saying our vows. Her style is fairly abstract which I love because it really captures the colors and mood of the moment and you can still definitely tell who is who.

It's the single thing that I got the most comments about. Guests loved it. She painted away the whole night. Plus Joan is a fantastic lady and really fun to have around."     Clancy  August
