Hi, I'm Ben!

A Legare Waring House ceremony inclues one of the most magical backdrops for a wedding ceremony here in Charleston! The Avenue of Oaks, with the dripping Spanish Moss and dappled sunlight along the lawn, make a perfect setting. And heavens does it make for a great painting, too! Ben had such an incredible time capturing Lauren and Jackson’s ceremony with a live painting. From the gorgeous florals, to the perfect pinks, all the details were just beautiful.

We love that they chose to include their full wedding party in their painting. Standing beneath the canopy of trees above, this view is one of a kind here in Charleston!

Legare Waring House is tucked away in Charleston, located in West Ashley. Believe it or not, this venue is also a State Park and the grounds are just incredible. This venue is such a magical experience for guests as they walk around to the historic home.

But the centerpiece of Lauren and Jackson’s wedding day was by far the sweet love that these two share! We are so excited to share their finished live painting from their Legare Waring House ceremony here in Charleston, SC!
