Live Wedding Painting | Dallas, TX

Bentley + Michael
Brake + Clutch Warehouse
Dallas, Texas

We’ll take all the historic charm, please!!! We LOVED that Bentley + Michael' chose Brake + Clutch Warehouse as their wedding location, nestled in the heart of the up and coming arts district in Dallas. Their day was overflowing with warmth, of course from the design like the greenery on the chandeliers … but mostly from this darling couple themselves! What an absolute honor to celebrate with them! Every detail of their day was so full of life, and a beautiful reflection of their love! Cheers to these sweet newlyweds! We are so thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting!

Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

Megan + Joey
William Aiken House
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 30 in. Canvas

Ben has painted many times at one of Charleston’s most iconic venues, the William Aiken House, but Megan and Joey’s wedding was our first ceremony capture there. With the gorgeous pergola, drapery, and spectacular backdrop of the ivy wall, it’s officially one of our favorite live paintings at William Aiken House. We went back and forth wight Megan and Joey trying to decide whether or not to capture the house in the backdrop of the painting and ultimately they decided on excluding the house. Honestly, we were thrilled with their decision because Ben had the opportunity to paint a new perspective. This beautiful couple, originally from New Orleans, chose Charleston as the location for their destination wedding - and the William Aiken House was the perfect setting for their sweet southern celebration. Peper Events coordinated their day beautifully and added such personal details, too! The couple’s photo-booth wall was one of our favorites that we’ve seen! Needless to say, we’re thrilled to unveil their finished live painting alongside the gorgeous photos from Marley Photography!
