Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

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!

A live wedding painting at Charleston's iconic Lowndes Grove Plantation

Ashley + Blake
Lowndes Grove Plantation
Charleston, SC
24 x 30 in. | Oil on Canvas

As locals to Charleston, Ashley and Blake's wedding day was overflowing with chic Lowcountry style with a pop of prep.  Their ceremony and reception were both held at Charleston's iconic Lowndes Grove Plantation, tucked away on the upper Peninsula.  Lilly Pulitzer herself would have approved of everything from their color palette to the gold pineapple table accents.  One of the most unforgettable moments was when Ashley and her father arrived in a horse drawn carriage, just before walking down the aisle.    (Every girl's DREAM!)  Ashley and Blake commissioned Ben to capture their ceremony overlooking the gorgeous coastal landscape of the Ashley River.  Following the ceremony, Ben relocated under the tented reception to continue painting for guests to enjoy.  Needless to say, we are so pleased to share their finished live wedding painting!
