The Ringling Brothers’ Ca d’Zan Mansion
Sarasota, Florida

We’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel across the United States to be part of spectacular weddings and events for couples that we come to hold so dearly.  Part of the joy in traveling is being able to experience the absolutely incredible wedding venues across the country.  And to be completely honest, the Ringling Brothers’ Ca d’Zan Mansion is at the top of our list of extraordinary venues.  Tucked away along the coast of Sarasota, Florida, the Ringling Brother’s estate is so enchanting, and well worth a visit if you’re traveling to the Gulf Coast.  I’ll never forget when Jessica inquired with us and shared that her wedding would be at the Ca d’Zan.  At that time, I had not heard of this venue and of course, did a quick google search.  My jaw absolutely dropped viewing the images of weddings and events on the property.  And truthfully, the images just don’t compare to experiencing an event at the Ca d’Zan.  Ben was so inspired to take on this gorgeous old-world Italian architecture as the backdrop for their Live Wedding Painting.  Jessica and John’s wedding ceremony was held on the front lawn of the mansion, followed by a tented reception to the side.  Ben captured their first look in their live painting with the spectacular mansion in the backdrop.  We are so happy for these sweet newlyweds and hope this painting brings a lifetime of joy as they remember their spectacular evening celebrating!
