Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

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!

Lauren + Dante
William Aiken House
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 30 in.

We are so blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively to some of the most premier wedding venues across the country ... and at the end of the day, we're so proud to call Charleston, SC home.  The William Aiken House, located in the heart of downtown, is such an iconic expression of the beauty of southern hospitality.  That coupled with working with Pure Luxe Bride, and the result is a dream wedding day!  Lauren + Dante chose Francesca and Blake to design and style their gorgeous day ... and we loved that their first dance was positioned with a perfect view of the House in the backdrop.  Architecture is also one of Ben's favorite subjects to paint as he loves the play of shadow and light along with the design and angles.  Needless to say, we're thrilled to share their finished live painting.  Ben so enjoyed getting to know Lauren + Dante's family and friends as he painted throughout the evening.  We hope this painting brings a lifetime of joy.  Cheers to this amazing couple and an unforgettable Charleston wedding day!
