Live Wedding Painting | Orlando, Florida

by Benjamin Keys

Sibani + Apas
Waldorf Astoria Orlando
Orlando, Florida
30 x 40 in. Canvas

There truly aren’t words to describe how special each live painting is for us … knowing how much each painting means to each couple and family. We dream of their children’s children viewing the painting and seeing the LOVE their grandparents shared on their wedding day. All the beauty of Sibani + Apas’ wedding week was just a reflection of the love they share together … Ben said he has NEVER seen a groom smile as much as Apas did that day! We felt so honored to get to know them and be part of their breathtaking ceremony held at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando! SJS Events created such a dream wedding week from design to coordination … she thought of every single detail! Our favorite ceremony detail was the fuchsia umbrellas that were offered to guests during the ceremony. Such a colorful (and practical!) addition!! Needless to say, we’re so excited to share this sweet couples finished live painting!

Live Wedding Painting | Philadelphia, PA

by Benjamin Keys

Erika + Matt
The Kimmel Center
Hamilton Garden
Philadelphia, PA
24 x 36 in.

It’s always SUCH a joy to work with the Kyle Michelle Weddings team … in fact … when the girls send us an inquiry … it’s always a YES, YES, YES … just tell us WHERE! Not only is their day-of coordination so smooth and fun on the vendor end … their weddings are just GORGEOUS! Erika + Matt’s wedding was just that … flawless and beautiful … in the most breathtaking event space! Their ceremony and reception took place inside Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center in the Hamilton Garden. Ben so enjoyed (the challenge of!) capturing the incredible windows that scale the side of the building and create this amazing modern pattern behind them. And of course, their ceremony flowers perfectly reflected the architecture of the space. Zach from Jessica Hendrix Photography captured this couple beautifully … oh my gosh they are adorable. Ben had such an incredible time creating their live painting and is so proud of how their live painting came together.
