Wildberry Farm couldn't be a more picturesque setting for a gorgeous barn wedding.  The open, lush green fields, Azaleas blooming, and beautiful white barn create the most charming wedding venue.  It's relaxed, peaceful, and serene ... in a way that channels focus to the beauty of what a wedding day is all about: celebrating two becoming one.  Ashley and Davis' wedding day was just that!  And the best part: Ashley's sister commissioned Ben to create a live wedding painting as a gift to them!  The painting was a complete surprise that was a kept a secret for almost a year!  The Sweetgrass Social girls transformed the reception space with vibrant pops of fuchsia, lavender accents, and rich green tones.  The hanging flower chandeliers over each table created such a beautiful statement when you walked into the barn!  The barn was full of life and gorgeous color, making inspiration for their wedding painting come naturally!  Ben enjoyed capturing their first dance moment on canvas, along with their family and friends celebrating in such a beautiful space!  Dana Cubbage Weddings captured the day perfectly in all it's vibrant colors!  (Not to mention the flower girl that has won our hearts!)  There's such authenticity in how Dana photographs a wedding with clean, bright, and TRUE images.  I can honestly say, she caught just how gorgeous their day was from start to finish!  This was indeed such a fun wedding to be part of and we hope the painting will bring so much joy to Ashley and Davis as the cherish the memory of their wedding day!

Katherine + Cory | Live Wedding Painting

There's nothing sweeter than a backyard wedding.  The location itself brings so much meaning to a wedding day, not to mention a place the bride and groom can revisit for years and years to come.  We had the honor of capturing Katherine and Corey's backyard wedding ceremony on canvas.  The ceremony was held in Lake City, South Carolina on Katherine's parents' property.  They couldn't have planned for more perfect weather!  Katherine walked down the aisle wearing a gorgeous Modern Trousseau gown and joined Corey surrounded by their closest friends and family.  Ben had a perfect view and captured their vows live during the ceremony.  After the ceremony, Ben transitioned his easel to the reception location and continued painting as the celebration continued!  One of our favorite moments of the reception was the spectacular fireworks show!  Such a wonderful way to end such a gorgeous celebration of Katherine and Cory's wedding day!
