How to choose the moment for your live wedding painting?

Stuck on the moment?  This guide includes 10 questions we ask our couples to help them decide on the details for their Live Wedding Painting.

McKenna + Michael
Middleton Place
Charleston, South Carolina
24 x 36 in. Canvas

We are beyond excited to share McKenna and Michael’s finished live wedding painting! This sweet couple chose Charleston’s breathtaking Middleton Place as the backdrop for their celebration. Middleton Place is one of our favorite places to visit personally as a family and we’ve been waiting for the stars to align for Ben to be available to paint a wedding here! Needless to say, we were elated when McKenna and Michael chose to have their ceremony, which was held at the Butterfly Garden, captured as the subject of their live painting. The Butterfly Garden sits on a bit of a hill with an incredible view of one of the prettiest oak trees here in Charleston! Ben captured the beauty of this moment, as McKenna and Michael shared their vows, perfectly! And of course, the Pure Luxe Bride team created an absolute DREAM wedding for them!! Cheers to one of our favorite couples and live paintings to date!!
