    This Is The Classiest Wedding Favor We've Ever Seen

    Maggie Smith Kühn really knows how ~draw a crowd~.

    If you're not into the idea of a wedding hashtag, hiring a live event artist is a cool alternative way to capture your wedding guests.

    Maggie Smith Kühn, 29, is an Atlanta-based party portrait artist who creates original watercolors of event guests.

    "Guests love to be painted, because we talk and they also have a spotlight moment in the party where it's all about them," Smith Kühn told BuzzFeed Life. "It's so fun."

    "At the end, there is also that wonderful a-ha moment when I turn the finished painting around and they see it!" she said.

    Smith Kühn, who said she does events 40-50 weekends a year, has been painting party guests for nearly 12 years.

    Smith Kühn said each portrait takes 5-10 minutes "depending on how crazy the person's outfit is!"

    She also loves to paint couples during their first dance, or she'll paint them later (based on a photograph) at home in her studio.

    "I love giving people a wedding memento that is exactly the way they imagined it would be!"

    "Everyone wants to know how other people see them," Smith Kühn said. "Plus, it's a very unique party favor, so there is a real 'wow' factor!"
