As a Richmond live wedding painter and also having lived in Richmond, Stuart and Drews Country Club of Virginia wedding was beyond special! This was our first wedding here at this incredible property. It’s such a joy to return to the Richmond area for live wedding paintings and we are so excited to share Stuart and Drew’s finished painting!

A Sailcloth Tented Reception at Country Club of Virginia Wedding

We absolutely LOVE that Stuart and Drew chose to have their reception as the subject for their live wedding painting. Their reception design and florals were some of the happiest pops of color that we’ve ever seen! Overflowing with greenery and bright pinks and blues, it was such an inspiration for Ben as a live painter! And let’s be honest, there’s nothing like a reception under a sailcloth tent! It also makes for such an incredible painting!

Stuart and Drew chose their first dance as their live painting moment. And oh my heavens, it was magic! From the perspective of a live wedding painter in Richmond, their Country Club of Virginia wedding won our hearts with incredible hospitality and an absolutely beautiful reception setting! Cheers to this incredible couple and their absolutely beautiful wedding day!
