Wedding Painting from Photos | Vorno, Italy

by Benjamin Keys

20 x 16 in. | Oil on Canvas

We were so excited when Michael and his wife reach out to us after recently attending a wedding in Tuscany, Italy.  He had the idea that a painting created from photos would be the perfect gift for the newlyweds.  Having studied painting in Umbria, Italy, Ben was really excited to paint the Italian landscape again!  The wedding was held at Villa Valentina in Vorno, just outside of Lucca in the Tuscan region.  The newlyweds currently reside in New York City and we hope this painting brings years and years of joy as they remember their Italian wedding day!

18 x 24 in. Live Wedding Painting
12 x 16 in. Painting from Photos

We just delivered two paintings to newlyweds Danielle and Drew.  The first, a scene of this sweet bride and groom saying their vows, and the second a portrait of them standing before Anne Hathaway's Cottage.  The Anne Hathaway Cottage in Virginia is actually an exact replica of the original Anne Hathaway's Bed and Breakfast that is in England.  The original cottage in England was the residence of Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway.  This was the perfect venue being that the groom's family lives in England!  The charming gardens and cozy cottage with a thatched roof created the most intimate backdrop for this couple and their family and friends.  It was an absolute honor to capture this day for Danielle and Drew!
