Tara + Spencer

Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards
Charlottesville, Virginia
24 x 36 in. Oil on Canvas

Amidst the lovely vineyards and breathtaking view of the Blue Ridge mountains, Tara and Spencer celebrated their wedding day at Pippin Hill Farm.  The venue was designed and created by one of the country’s leading planning teams, Easton Events, with bespoke events as the forefront of venue experience.  Tara and Spencer said “I do” on a perfect July day with one beautiful sunset view and continued the evening inside with a chic-Barn reception.  Taz of Easton Events planned and designed their wedding day with perfection!  Ben was so honored to capture the beauty of the reception with a live wedding painting.  Tara chose the first dance as the subject of their wedding painting.  Southern Blooms designed the most gorgeous hanging floral chandeliers, making a lovely canopy over the bride and groom as they danced together for the first time as husband and wife.  Jen Fariello, a true artist behind a lens, was commissioned to photograph the day.  Needless to say, Pippin Hill Farm has won our hearts and we are so excited to share Tara and Spencer’s finished live wedding painting!
