Wrightsville Manor Wedding in Wilmington

Nikki & Adam’s Wrightsville Manor Wedding Painting

July 2, 2024

A Wrightsville Manor Wedding in Wilmington, NC

Wrightsville Manor is one of our favorite Wilmington wedding venues! It’s the romantic Old-World architecture that meets Southern Charm that wins our heart every time Ben creates a live wedding painting here. Nikki and Adam’s Wrightsville Manor wedding was out of this world glamorous, fun, and heartfelt. Ben absolutely loved creating a live wedding painting for them!

From Nikki’s stunning Vera Wang gown to their beyond amazing getaway sports car, every detail of their day was effortlessly so fashion forward. Ashlyn Cathey Photography was the perfect photographer to capture the art and soul of it all! And oh my stars … Miles Film Co didn’t just document the day, they created a true film, a work of art of it’s own right!

Wilmington + Wrightsville Beach are where our own love story began!

If you’ve followed our own love story, you might know that it all began at Wrightsville Beach. And this very connection to the city we love brings such a special layer of meaning to each and every wedding that Ben paints! Ben was a full time artist creating paintings for galleries and private collectors in Wrightsville Beach long before his first ever live wedding painting. It was actually one of Ben’s paintings that brought us together – you read that correctly! I saw a painting hanging in an office and just happened to ask: where did you find this painting!!

Fast forward: Ben and I just celebrated 11 years of marriage together! Though Charleston is our home today, Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach will forever hold a very special place in our hearts!

We are beyond excited to share Nikki and Adam’s finished Wilmington live wedding painting from their ceremony at Wrightsville Manor! Cheers to this beautiful couple and their beautiful day!
