Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

Carolina + Jacob
Boone Hall Plantation
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
24 x 36 in. Canvas

They say it’s lucky when it rains on your wedding day! And in this cake, Carolina and Jacob were one of the lucky ones. Their rain plan resulted in their ceremony taking place over on the dock of the Cotton Dock at Charleston’s historic Boone Hall Plantation. We just love that they had the gorgeous waterfront marsh view for their ceremony, followed by an evening of dinner and dancing inside. Ben was so excited to capture their first dance for their live painting … including that waterfront view as well as their charming decor. The Cotton Dock was just so romantic, with the candelabras, chandeliers, and twinkle lights. It was an absolute perfect Charleston wedding day! We’re so excited to share their finished live wedding painting!

Live Wedding Painting | Palm Beach, Florida

by Benjamin Keys

Molly + Dalton
The Breakers
Palm Beach, Florida
24 x 36 in.

As an artist, who loves capturing architectural details and interiors, there’s no place like The Breakers! We’ve been so fortunate to be part of so many weddings at The Breakers over the last 7 years … each one perfection and overflowing with inspiration. Molly and Dalton’s wedding was one that we looked forward to with great anticipation! Styled by one of our favorites, Sara Rene Events … in The Circle … a ballroom the Ben hadn’t captured yet! After 7+ years of painting weddings at The Breakers, the staff and wedding team have become like our family and it’s just such a joy to return. And of course, when is always excited to capture the glam of a Sara Renee Event! Sara pulled off coordinating Brazilian Dancers towards the end of the party as a nod to Dalton’s roots! Every single detail was absolute perfection and Ben could have created 100 paintings from all the beauty of their day. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share Molly + Dalton’s completed live wedding painting!
