3 Paintings | 11 x 14 in. 

Each and every painting is special to us, but Stephanie took our sentimental hearts to a new level!  Ben captured Stephanie + Anthony's gorgeous downtown Atlanta wedding with a live painting back in October or 2016.  (Check out their first original live wedding painting here!)  As a thank you gift to her sweet father for giving them the wedding of their dreams, Stephanie commissioned Ben to create a series of three paintings.  Of course, we L O V E D her idea and thought it was the most creative and thoughtful gift ever!  Stephanie sent over 3 images that she loved and Ben then used them to create each painting.  The first was a painting of Stephanie and her Dad's Father of the Bride Dance during the reception.  The second was a sweet close up of her Mom + Dad dancing.  The third was a fun painting of her sister, Britt, dancing with her Dad.  Needless to say, we are just over-the-moon in love with her idea!  Ben had so much fun creating each piece!  We hope these paintings season with meaning year after year as they remember their special wedding day!
