Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

Carolina + Jacob
Boone Hall Plantation
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
24 x 36 in. Canvas

They say it’s lucky when it rains on your wedding day! And in this cake, Carolina and Jacob were one of the lucky ones. Their rain plan resulted in their ceremony taking place over on the dock of the Cotton Dock at Charleston’s historic Boone Hall Plantation. We just love that they had the gorgeous waterfront marsh view for their ceremony, followed by an evening of dinner and dancing inside. Ben was so excited to capture their first dance for their live painting … including that waterfront view as well as their charming decor. The Cotton Dock was just so romantic, with the candelabras, chandeliers, and twinkle lights. It was an absolute perfect Charleston wedding day! We’re so excited to share their finished live wedding painting!

Carolina + Jacob commissioned live wedding painter, Ben Keys, to capture their first dance during their reception held at Charleston’s Boone Hall Plantation.

Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

Brooke + Tim
Merchants Hall
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 36 in. Canvas

Merchants Hall is one of Charleston’s newest wedding venues located downtown … and we have been long awaiting the restoration and Grand Opening! It’s no wonder that Brooke and Tim fell in love with this venue and chose it for their reception location, with the beautiful historic, exposed bricks and the breathtaking chandeliers! Pure Luxe Bride styled and coordinated an absolute dream reception … so amazing that we could style our own home with the details … like the chairs!! The florals were also absolute magic with their pops of dusty blues. And we just loved that Brooke and Tim requested that Ben capture their adorable Golden Doodle named Dublin! Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share their completed live painting!
