We are so excited to share Jasmine and Ryan’s live painting from their Malachi Meadows wedding! What an absolute dream day! Malachi Meadows is a stunning wedding venue that’s located in Currie, NC, just outside of Wilmington, NC. As a live painter that started in Wilmington, NC, returning to the area is so, so special for Ben!! We were truly honored that Jasmine chose Ben to create such a special painting for her and Ryan on their wedding day!

A glam Malachi Meadows wedding, overflowing with flowers!

Jasmine chose their first kiss moment during their ceremony as the backdrop for their live painting. Their floral arch was beautiful and perfectly framed them in the painting. Malachi Meadows is stunning both inside and out! You can tell there is so much heart and soul … and planning that went into making this venue. It’s a lovely blank canvas that can be styled any direction. Though the property is a farm, Malachi Meadows can be styled glamorous or rustic … and both work! Jasmine and Ryan’s wedding was gold and glamorous and oh my heavens, every details was so beautiful!

We are so excited to share their finished live wedding painting! Their Malachi Meadows wedding won our hearts and we can’t wait to return in the future! So grateful they chose Ben as their live wedding painter!
