Live Wedding Painting | Miami, Florida

by Benjamin Keys

Nechama + Eli
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Miami, Florida
24 x 30 in. Canvas

Nechama and Eli’s wedding was like walking through the pages of Grace Ormonde magazine. Luxurious, glamorous, colorful … all with the backdrop of the historic Vizcaya! Vizcaya Museum and Gardens has been on our dream-wedding venue list for years … we’ve been booked for every single inquiry, until Nechama and Eli reached out to us! Needless to say, we were thrilled that Ben was available to create live painting for their ceremony! Vizcaya is such a magical place … and something that you have to experience for yourself! (Put it on your list of things to do next time you’re visiting Miami … it’s absolutely a MUST!) Ben was just so inspired as he painted through sundown, as Nechama walked down the aisle with her parents. Their orthodox Jewish ceremony was just stunning. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share their finished live painting!

Alison + Rally | Wilmington, NC

by Benjamin Keys

Alison + Rally
First Presbyterian Church
Wilmington, North Carolina
30 x 24 in.

It’s always such a joy to return to Wilmington, NC … where Ben first launched his art career! Alison and Rally’s felt like a client reunion because Ben had painted for so many of the guests whether live at an event or a commissioned house portrait. Needless to say, Ben had an absolute blast celebrating with Alison and Rally. They chose their ceremony as the subject of their live painting, highlighting their bridal party as well as the gorgeous architecture and stained glass of First Presbyterian Church. Architecture is one of Ben’s favorite backdrops to paint. There’s so much measuring and design involved that he finds it to be an exciting challenge. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting!

Alison + Rally commissioned live wedding painter, Ben Keys, of Wed on Canvas to capture their ceremony held at downtown Wilmington’s First Presbyterian Church.
