Live Wedding Painting | St. Augustine, Florida

Treasury on the Plaza
St. Augustine, Florida
24 x 36 in. Oil on Canvas

St. Augustine's historic venue, the Treasury on the Plaza, is a centerpiece to the St. Augustine skyline view from the Intracoastal waterway.  As a child, I (Jen) remember it so clearly from my grandparent's house that was located just over the Bridge of Lions.  Newly renovated, the Treasury on the Plaza serves as a glamorous wedding venue located in the heart of downtown St. Augustine.  With deep family roots in St. Augustine, it goes without saying that I was over-the-moon excited when Danielle's wedding planner called to request Ben's availability for her big day!  With intricate Mediterranean Revival architecture, Danielle's 1920s New Orleans themed reception vision was a perfect match.  Her statement florals included feathers that complimented the venue's grand columns.  Prior to becoming a wedding venue, the Treasury served as St. Augustine's landmark bank and the iconic vault from 1927 serves as a unique bar!  Needless to say, all of these details were inspirational as Ben captured the first dance in a live wedding painting.  It is with absolute joy that we share their finished live wedding painting!
