Alexis + Jeff
The Governor Thomas Bennett House
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 30 in.

Oh the charm of a Charleston wedding in the heart of downtown … with beautiful southern architecture and oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. The Governor Thomas Bennett House is just that … overflowing with charm! Alexis and Jeff went back and forth about the subject of their live painting. Their ceremony and reception weren’t positioned with the view of the house they wanted, so we just tweaked reality and made it happen! That’s the beauty of a liv painting! Although Ben tries to keep each live wedding painting as true to reality as he can, there are times where he’s able to make an exception. We are so in love with how Alexis + Jeff’s painting came together! Ben captured their first dance and then positioned the Thomas Bennett House directly behind them. We are proud of every painting, but this one is extra special! Cheers to these sweet newlyweds and their incredible Charleston wedding day!

Live Wedding Painting | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

Melaina + Evan
Danial Island Club
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 30 in.

There’s truly no better way to start off 2019 than with am email today hearing that Melaina and Evan LOVE their finished live wedding painting! These two celebrated their wedding on a perfect Fall day at Daniel Island Club, overlooking Charleston’s breathtaking low country coastal landscape! The marsh scene created such a peaceful backdrop during their outdoor ceremony. Melaina and Evan requested that Ben capture just the two of them as they shared their first kiss in front of their closest family and friends. Their floral arch was like a perfect frame around them! Ben always feels he’s back to his roots when painting a marsh scene after years and years of creating coastal landscapes … we feel these two got the Best of Ben Keys! Needless to say, we’re so excited to get to work this week framing their painting and shipping it to them! Cheers to 2019 and kicking it off to a beautiful start!
