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!

Live Wedding Painting | Orlando, Florida

by Benjamin Keys

Sibani + Apas
Waldorf Astoria Orlando
Orlando, Florida
30 x 40 in. Canvas

There truly aren’t words to describe how special each live painting is for us … knowing how much each painting means to each couple and family. We dream of their children’s children viewing the painting and seeing the LOVE their grandparents shared on their wedding day. All the beauty of Sibani + Apas’ wedding week was just a reflection of the love they share together … Ben said he has NEVER seen a groom smile as much as Apas did that day! We felt so honored to get to know them and be part of their breathtaking ceremony held at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando! SJS Events created such a dream wedding week from design to coordination … she thought of every single detail! Our favorite ceremony detail was the fuchsia umbrellas that were offered to guests during the ceremony. Such a colorful (and practical!) addition!! Needless to say, we’re so excited to share this sweet couples finished live painting!
