As a Live Wedding Painter, Ben was thrilled to paint Haley and Rich’s Diana at Biltmore wedding in Asheville, NC! Ben has painted at different locations at the Biltmore, but this was the first at the Diana! The view from this side of the property is just incredible!

The Diana is an incredible view of the Biltmore Estate for weddings

The Diana wedding venue gets its name after the statue located in the beautiful lawn overlooking the breathtaking Biltmore Estate! For ceremonies, it’s just a dream, because you are able to see the whole Estate in the backdrop! Needless to say, we love that Haley and Rich chose to have their ceremony captured as the moment for their live wedding painting!

Working with Haley and her sweet mom throughout the planning process was such a treat. We love this family so much … and knew there would day was going to be so, so beautiful! From the incredible floral installations framing the two of them as they said their vows … to the breathtaking view … and holy wow, Haley’s dress was spectacular!

We are so excited to share their finished live wedding painting! Cheers to this incredible couple and their unforgettable wedding day!
