Hi, I'm Ben!


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.


Grab the guide:

Natalie + Steve
Bella Collina Mansion
Stokesdale, North Carolina
24 x 30 in. | Oil on Canvas

Bella Collina Mansion, An italian-inspired venue overlooking a lakefront view, was the gorgeous backdrop for Natalie and Steve’s North Carolina wedding day.  The couple were so thrilled to commission Ben to create their first piece of original artwork and chose their first dance as the subject of their live wedding painting.  The BEST part: their first dance took place on the Juliet Balcony of the Mansion!  The moment was so romantic as guests below watched as the couple danced above on the balcony!  Such a wonderful moment for a Valentine’s weekend wedding!  We had so much fun getting to know this sweet couple over the last year while planning for their painting.  Ben is so thrilled to share their finished live wedding painting!  We hope this painting brings years and years of joy as their first commissioned artwork – and how special that it was created live, on their wedding day!
