Live Wedding Painting | Houston, Texas

Krista + Matt
Ashton Gardens
Houston, Texas
24 x 30 in.

The romantic arched windows of Houston's Ashton Gardens perfectly framed Krista + Matt's wedding ceremony. Believe it or not, Ben has actually painted at Ashton Gardens’ sister location in Atlanta. We were so excited to hear they also have two locations in Houston! The one constant between each venue they have designed is having the gorgeous ceremony space with large open windows! What an absolute dream venue space to hold a ceremony! AND ... look closely and you'll see Krista + Matt’s beloved Frenchie, Clementine, celebrating there with them! We are LOVING this trend of including our couple's fur-babes in their live paintings! Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting! What a joy knowing they will come home to this painting year after year after year!

Candice + Alvin said "I Do" in the breathtaking Ashton Gardens venue located outside of Atlanta, Georgia.  Their wedding day was a dreamy, romantic morning wedding followed by a perfect brunch reception.  Lissahn of Enraptured Events coordinated and designed all the beauty of the day.  She commissioned Andy of AW Beech to create gorgeous floral centerpieces and decorated tables with honeycombs and english tea sets.  We have been following Andy's floral work for a few years now and were over-the-moon excited when we found out we would be capturing his gorgeous blooms in their live painting.  We absolutely loved working with Lissahn and were truly impressed by the day from start to finish!  Candice + Alvin requested that Ben capture their first dance with a live wedding painting - a perfect moment to highlight all the beautiful decor moments that filled the room!  The sweet newlyweds danced together, surrounded by their family and friends - and in such a lovely setting!  We wish a lifetime of overflowing love and happiness to this sweet couple!!
