Cheers to Francesca + Justin’s 10th Anniversary celebration. After an intimate vow renewal, they welcomed their family and friends to celebrate, including US! That’s right, we were guests for once!!! We started the evening with champagne gorgeously styled in Justin’s vintage car ... followed by a delicious al fresco dinner with incredible music underneath chandeliers the sweet southern oak trees at Wingate Plantation. It was a dream Charleston evening ... and we loved celebrating with them. Francesca and Justin have been dear friends since we moved to Charleston ... we’ve watched our business grow and been there for each other personally and professionally over the years.

The Governor Thomas Bennett House
Charleston, South Carolina

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!
