Live Wedding Painting | Savannah, Georgia

Chelsea + Reid
The Westin
Savannah, Georgia
24 x 36 in. | Oil on Canvas

Savannah is one of the most dreamy wedding destinations in the US.  With it's southern hospitality and charm paired with an incredible food scene, you can see why it's a great place to say I DO.  We were just thrilled when Chelsea and Reid commissioned Ben to capture their wedding reception with a live painting.  The Westin Savannah Harbor was a spectacular backdrop for their day.  And of course, when we found out the ladies of Posh, Petals, & Pearls were behind the event design and styling, we were even more excited!  Needless to say, their wedding day was spectacular!  Ben had so much fun painting their first dance - the painting was such a huge hit and guests just loved watching it come to life throughout the evening.  We especially loved the florals arranged in the ballroom chandelier ... it was just gorgeous!  Their wedding day was as beautiful as this couple, inside and out!  Cheers to Chelsea and Reid and an unforgettable Savannah wedding day!

Wildberry Farm
Marion, South Carolina
24 x 30 in. | Oil on Canvas

Wildberry Farm couldn't be a more picturesque setting for a gorgeous barn wedding.  The open, lush green fields, Azaleas blooming, and beautiful white barn create the most charming wedding venue.  It's relaxed, peaceful, and serene ... in a way that channels focus to the beauty of what a wedding day is all about: celebrating two becoming one.  Ashley and Davis' wedding day was just that!  And the best part: Ashley's sister commissioned Ben to create a live wedding painting as a gift to them!  The painting was a complete surprise that was a kept a secret for almost a year!  The Sweetgrass Social girls transformed the reception space with vibrant pops of fuchsia, lavender accents, and rich green tones.  The hanging flower chandeliers over each table created such a beautiful statement when you walked into the barn!  The barn was full of life and gorgeous color, making inspiration for their wedding painting come naturally!  Ben enjoyed capturing their first dance moment on canvas, along with their family and friends celebrating in such a beautiful space!  Dana Cubbage Weddings captured the day perfectly in all it's vibrant colors!  (Not to mention the flower girl that has won our hearts!)  There's such authenticity in how Dana photographs a wedding with clean, bright, and TRUE images.  I can honestly say, she caught just how gorgeous their day was from start to finish!  This was indeed such a fun wedding to be part of and we hope the painting will bring so much joy to Ashley and Davis as the cherish the memory of their wedding day!
