Live Wedding Painting | Kiawah Island, SC

by Benjamin Keys

Sarah + Daniel
The River Course at Kiawah Island Golf Club
Kiawah Island, SC
24 x 30 in. Canvas

It's always so exciting when Ben has the opportunity to capture a venue for the first time.  And it's an added bonus when he's also capturing the gorgeous event design from A Charleston Bride.  We had so much fun planning for Sarah and Daniel's live wedding painting, and Ben was so proud with how the finished piece came together.  The romantic soft French blues and lush greenery throughout the ballroom were just beautiful.  The large open windows of The River Course at Kiawah Island Club allowed for not only a great view, but also lovely light as Ben was painting.  Sarah wore the most dreamy custom lace ball gown by Modern Trousseau.  (After having worked for Modern Trousseau, I can always spot their gowns!)  Her gown was perfect for their wedding day!  We are so excited to share their finished live painting.  What an absolute joy to be part of their day!

Catie + Jerry | Live Wedding Painting

by Benjamin Keys

The Sanctuary Golf Resort
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
18 x 24 in. | Oil on Canvas

Catie and Jerry's wedding commission was commissioned by Jerry's sweet sister as a surprise wedding gift!  (How thoughtful is that!)  The two celebrated their wedding day at The Sanctuary Golf Resort on Kiawah Island.  The event decor, styled and coordinated by Southern Protocol, was full of timeless romance, elegance, and pops of glam.  Each table was overflowing with lush greenery and gorgeous florals.   The tent was perfectly draped with unique vintage chandeliers lighting the evening.  There was so much beauty to capture in their wedding painting as the couple shared their first dance, surrounded by their dearest friends and family.  What a joy to be part of their wedding day!
