Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

Blake + Charles
The Gadsden House
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 36 in. Canvas

It is with so much joy that we share Blake + Charles finished live painting from their wedding that was held at Charleston’s dreamy downtown venue called The Gadsden House. We’ve literally travelled around the world for weddings and events, but there’s just something magical about a Charleston wedding ... and ESPECIALLY when the bride is also a Charleston Wedding Planner! We’ve known Blake since she started with Francesca at Pure Luxe Bride and have enjoyed capturing so many of their weddings. Needless to say, we were ecstatic when Francesca reached out and said that she wanted to gift Blake and Charles a live painting as a wedding gift. We completely agree: BEST GIFT EVER! The anticipation leading up to Blake and Charles’ wedding day was killer … but oh so worth the wait! Their event design was a dream … dream ceremony, dream candlelit dinner, dream flowers, dream venue, and dream guests having the best time celebrating an incredible couple! The truth is, their wedding day was a beautiful expression of their love … and Ben so enjoyed capturing all the joy! We’re thrilled to share their finished live painting!
