Live Wedding Painting | Grant Valkaria, Florida

by Benjamin Keys

Jessica + Tim
Up the Creek Farms
Grant Valkaria, Florida
24 x 30 in. | Oil on Canvas

There's nothing like a backyard wedding on the bride's family property ... which also happens to be one of central Florida's newest wedding venues!  That's right, Jessica and Tim have transformed their backyard into one of the most beautiful outdoor wedding venues.  The day was layered with meaning and truly one-of-a-kind with character infused into each detail of the day.  Ben was absolutely honored to capture Jessica and Tim's ceremony with a live wedding painting.  Guests were seated in mix-and-match vintage chairs and sofas in a circle formation around the bride and groom.  Above them, hung a spectacular floral chandelier that complimented the Florida Spanish Oaks beautifully!  Jessica walked out of her home, with her father by her side ... and the couple's two dogs following behind as if they had rehearsed walking down the aisle!  The weather was absolutely perfect for their morning wedding, followed by a brunch reception in the Boathouse.  The entire day was so inspiring, Ben could have painted multiple paintings ... there was just so much beauty!  We are so thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting along with the gorgeous photography from Concept Photography, based in Orlando.  Truly, their photography is an art expression in and of itself!  Cheers to Jessica and Tim - May this painting bring years and years of joy as you remember your gorgeous wedding day!
