Excerpts from a series of emails... (March 2014)caricature artist for weddings unique wedding entertainment alternative wedding reception entertainment ideas for wedding guests unusual wedding entertainment ideas USA metro ny area wedding caricatures sketch artist entertainment bride & groom caricatures walk around wedding caricatures
"My husband, Tom, & I had the pleasure of having you do our "characatures" at a wedding in NJ two years ago. At the time, I took your card and hoped that someday, we might want/need your services.

Our son is getting married this October in Easton, CT. Would you be available and could you provide us with any details along with your pricing?

Your art hangs on the door of our office in our home. It's such fun to look at it and remember that event.
Look forward to hearing from you."

After I sent them my info...
"Looking forward to seeing you do your "magic" once again!  Always fun!!

Overheard while I was drawing at the wedding...
"Everybody loves you! He's the busiest guy in Connecticut!

A caricature artist at a wedding? Yes!
Caricature artists for wedding receptions always entertain your guests.
I try to get the Bride & Groom before the end, because that's when everyone is leaving
and kissing them goodnight, which can be very distracting. The idea of having a caricature artist
at a wedding has become less unusual or unconventional and more the mainstream.

Every artist has their own style, my caricature style looks very much like the people, with just enough exaggeration weather in the cartoon bodies or the heads to be fun and not be insulting.
Right when people sit and talk a little, I can easily tell who I can fool around with more or less.
There caricatures were drawn during a fun night at the East Wind Caterers in Wading River, NY.

That's me doing walkaround or strolling caricatures during both the cocktail hour and the reception
at the Milleridge Cottage. Usually I'll be set-up somewhere and your guests will come to me, but
this is fun too. Walking around drawing caricatures only works well with b&w caricatures.

Some caricature pictures drawn at a small beach wedding on eastern Long Island, somewhere in the Hamptons.


"You were at my wedding on July 3rd at the Veranda at East Wind. I wanted to thank you and tell you how much everyone LOVED and RAVED about their caricatures that evening! You were a hit and so very much appreciated. Thank you so much for adding such a special touch to my wedding day. I'm so happy and appreciative that you were there!!!"
Thank you!!!! Lauren A.

Some recent Bridal Shower Caricatures, word got around that I had a "slimming pen", it was a busy night.
Looking for fun bridal shower ideas, give me a call. These caricatures were drawn at Villa Barone Manor
in the Bronx, but I felt like it was down south with almost everyone wearing the big floppy hats.

Having a caricature artist at an engagement party is also very entertaining.

Some caricatures done during a 50th anniversary party. My style of caricatures lends itself well
to adult parties like engagement parties, weddings & anniversaries. Usually I'm booked by the bride,
or her mother, every once in a while I'll be hired by someone, usually a family member as their gift,
meaning that I'll be a surprise.

Wedding caricature artists are reasonably priced entertainment, for both large weddings or small
backyard weddings. Caricatures are a different type of wedding entertainment. I serve Long Island,
Metro New York, northern New Jersey & southwestern Connecticut.

Caricatures at a Wedding?caricature artist for weddings unique wedding entertainment alternative wedding reception entertainment ideas for wedding guests unusual wedding entertainment ideas USA metro ny area wedding caricatures sketch artist entertainment bride & groom caricatures walk around wedding caricatures caricature artist for bridal shower engagement party entertainment
  Sure, why not . . . having a caricature artist at a wedding goes over very well at 30th and 40th surprise parties, anniversaries and rehearsal dinners, so why not weddings? Usually while doing a bar mitzvah I'm constantly approached by adults asking if they can get one done. There's always that percentage of people that would love something else to do than dance. Usually I sit down and people come to me, but sometimes I'll walk around to tables to do them.
  Guests at a wedding never expect to see a caricaturist there, once they realize I'm there, I'm busy. About the only hurdle is that the caricatures shouldn't be thought of as "the favor" that everyone gets, they are more of a added attraction, not everyone wants to get one. Sometimes a wife will drag over her husband, or I get groups of men or women. One of the woman in this group below suggested that I make up a new background; "You should make a scene with the woman doing the laundry, cooking, cleaning and the guy sitting with a beer and the remote." So I did and it's one of the pre-drawn backgrounds I take with me to parties that people can choose from if they want.

  The only people that seem to get a little nervous are the maitre-di's. Some aren't too used to this yet, Once one even insisted that I "Take a break" because too many people were (enjoying) hanging around me. He had me set-up outside the room because it was too tight inside and wanted them to go in and dance, but they just waited around for me to come back.Wedding invitation

Hiring a caricature artist for a wedding, things to consider:
That the artist is in the same room as your guests. (I've been left
· in the lobby, or the adjoining room where the cocktail hour was.)
Try to have the artist show you some "actual live samples", not
·
"celebrity samples" or "studio samples". Just to make sure that
· the pictures will resemble your guests and that they aren't too
·
exaggerated or ugly. I tell people that most of my exaggeration
· is in the bodies, but the pictures are very complimentary. My
· style of caricatures lends itself well to weddings and invitations.
The minimum amount of time an artist will work. Usually about
· two or three hours. You can't expect someone to come for just
· the cocktail hour, also that your getting the artist your talking to.
These can usually be done in black and white or color, the
· color is nicer looking, but the b&w go faster, sometimes I'll do
· the people in the bridal party in color and invited guests in b&w
They supply clear plastic bags to protect the finished pictures,
· from the weather and spills.
Any extra charges -sometimes travel expenses (tolls, parking)

at the River Cafe in Brooklyn, practically under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Over my shoulder view from a very low-keyed backyard wedding I recently did on Long Island, near Riverhead.

I always draw the bride and groom before leaving, every now and then while drawing at a
birthday party or something a couple will say they are getting married soon and ask if I can
do some sort of a bride & groom caricature of them.

Here's a collection of quick caricatures I did during a Long Island wedding!
