Live Wedding Painting | The Dewberry, Charleston, SC

Britt + Alex
The Dewberry
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 30 in. | Oil on Canvas

T H I S.  A candid bar scene moment was the subject Ben captured for Britt + Alex's live wedding painting.  Britt fell in love with a few of Ben's older paintings that had a brushy, loose feel and requested Ben approach her painting similarly.  She also was open to considering a more unique moment, instead of the traditional first dance.  Don't get us wrong, we love traditional moments that are so classic and timeless, but it sure is fun and refreshing to receive total creative liberty to paint what comes.  This painting wouldn't have been possible without Blythe of Yoj Events, who not only created a spectacular reception, but let Ben have so much freedom to just create.  The result was so fresh and alive.  Thank you so much to Britt + Alex, who trusted Ben to capture their story of their wedding day with brushstrokes.  We hope this painting will bring a lifetime of joy as you remember your gorgeous reception at The Dewberry in downtown Charleston.

Brooklyn bride and groom, Latoya and Robert, chose Magnolia Plantation as the backdrop for their destination wedding.  The lawn in front of the Carriage House has an iconic waterfront view of coastal marsh and the magical lowcountry trees.  Ben so enjoyed capturing their ceremony as the subject of their live wedding painting, surrounded by beloved friends and family before this incredible landscape.   Needless to say, we are thrilled to share this sweet couple's finished painting.  It brings so much joy to know that they will have this painting for a lifetime ahead as they remember their gorgeous Charleston wedding day!  We loved getting to know this couple and now only wish Brooklyn were closer to Charleston!!!
