Live Wedding Painting | Aiken, SC

by Benjamin Keys

Carla + Jason
The Willcox
Aiken, South Carolina
24 x 30 in. Canvas

We have fallen in love with The Willcox, Aiken, SC’s charming historic venue. The gorgeous southern architecture was the perfect backdrop for Carla + Jason’s live painting. The two danced the night away surrounding by best friends and family. And let’s talk about their design details … Sky blue and white striped linens and hydrangeas won our hearts! Every detail was a southern dream! Ben was excited to capture the architecture of the home at more of an angle, giving their painting such a dynamic composition. We are so excited to share their finished live painting. Cheers to this beautiful couple and their unforgettable wedding day!

It’s always such a joy to return to Wilmington, NC … where Ben first launched his art career! Alison and Rally’s felt like a client reunion because Ben had painted for so many of the guests whether live at an event or a commissioned house portrait. Needless to say, Ben had an absolute blast celebrating with Alison and Rally. They chose their ceremony as the subject of their live painting, highlighting their bridal party as well as the gorgeous architecture and stained glass of First Presbyterian Church. Architecture is one of Ben’s favorite backdrops to paint. There’s so much measuring and design involved that he finds it to be an exciting challenge. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting!
