Live Wedding Painting | Sarasota, FL

by Benjamin Keys

Ashley Ann + Patrick
Ritz-Carleton Sarasota
Sarasota, Florida

Ashley Ann and Patrick shared their destination wedding day with friends and family in sunny Sarasota … and in the midst of a cold winter, we were thrilled about their location! They couldn’t have had more perfect weather for their outdoor ceremony there on the lawn outside The Ritz Carlton. Following the ceremony, they followed their guests inside to the most romantic reception we’ve seen in a long time! Their dreamy blush roses were stunning … and can we talk about the florals that lined their draping inside! They took draping to a new level! Ben so enjoyed capturing their first dance for their live painting! Ashley Ann’s gown was an absolute dream ball gown! Needless to say, we’re so thrilled to share their finished live painting!
