Live Wedding Painting | Houston, Texas

by Benjamin Keys

Krista + Matt
Ashton Gardens
Houston, Texas
24 x 30 in.

The romantic arched windows of Houston's Ashton Gardens perfectly framed Krista + Matt's wedding ceremony. Believe it or not, Ben has actually painted at Ashton Gardens’ sister location in Atlanta. We were so excited to hear they also have two locations in Houston! The one constant between each venue they have designed is having the gorgeous ceremony space with large open windows! What an absolute dream venue space to hold a ceremony! AND ... look closely and you'll see Krista + Matt’s beloved Frenchie, Clementine, celebrating there with them! We are LOVING this trend of including our couple's fur-babes in their live paintings! Needless to say, we’re thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting! What a joy knowing they will come home to this painting year after year after year!
