Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

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!

Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

Christina + Gabe
Lowndes Grove Plantation
Charleston, South Carolina

Lowndes Grove Plantation is one of our favorite venues tucked away along the riverfront in Downtown Charleston, SC.  Ben has had the opportunity to capture this venue many times, but never like THIS!  A family member commissioned Ben to capture Christina + Gabe's wedding day as a gift to them.  We were so excited to learn that Lindsey of A Charleston Bride was heading up their design and planning!  When we met for a creative meeting, we were absolutely blown away with their vision for an open-air tent over the reception area, completed with gorgeous draping, florals, and chandeliers!  Ben had so much fun capturing this creative reception layout along with a unique vantage point of the Plantation Home at Lowndes Grove.  Christina + Gabe had an absolutely perfect destination southern wedding here in Charleston!  We are so grateful for uber creative planners like the girls at A Charleston Bride who are always pressing the envelope and coming up with out of the box design ideas!  Cheers to an incredible creative wedding day!
