Live Wedding Painting | Orlando, Florida

by Benjamin Keys

Sibani + Apas
Waldorf Astoria Orlando
Orlando, Florida
30 x 40 in. Canvas

There truly aren’t words to describe how special each live painting is for us … knowing how much each painting means to each couple and family. We dream of their children’s children viewing the painting and seeing the LOVE their grandparents shared on their wedding day. All the beauty of Sibani + Apas’ wedding week was just a reflection of the love they share together … Ben said he has NEVER seen a groom smile as much as Apas did that day! We felt so honored to get to know them and be part of their breathtaking ceremony held at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando! SJS Events created such a dream wedding week from design to coordination … she thought of every single detail! Our favorite ceremony detail was the fuchsia umbrellas that were offered to guests during the ceremony. Such a colorful (and practical!) addition!! Needless to say, we’re so excited to share this sweet couples finished live painting!

Alexis + Jeff | Charleston, SC

by Benjamin Keys

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!
