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!

Cheers to Francesca + Justin’s 10th Anniversary celebration. After an intimate vow renewal, they welcomed their family and friends to celebrate, including US! That’s right, we were guests for once!!! We started the evening with champagne gorgeously styled in Justin’s vintage car ... followed by a delicious al fresco dinner with incredible music underneath chandeliers the sweet southern oak trees at Wingate Plantation. It was a dream Charleston evening ... and we loved celebrating with them. Francesca and Justin have been dear friends since we moved to Charleston ... we’ve watched our business grow and been there for each other personally and professionally over the years.
