A Surprise Live Painting for Shelby & Alex’s Westin Hilton Head Wedding

This Westin Hilton Head Island wedding painting was a surprise gift to Shelby and Alex on their wedding day! And oh my goodness, how we love surprises like this! Not only is a live wedding painting an incredibly thoughtful gift that couples will have forever, but it’s also unforgettable entertainment the day of the wedding!

Planning with Shelby’s sweet mother leading up to their wedding was so much fun! Shelby chose Trish Beck Events as their wedding designer and planner. Trish truly has a gift when it comes to designing weddings. From the lush florals to the lounge furniture, every detail was so inspiring for Ben as a live wedding painter. The ballroom there at The Westin Hilton Head Resort was absolutely breathtaking!

Luxury meets coastal is how we would describe this Westin Hilton Head wedding painting that Ben created for Shelby and Alex. As a South Carolina live wedding painter, it’s always so exciting when Ben has the opportunity to capture a coastal landscape scene within a live wedding painting. Before creating live paintings, Ben actually was known for his coastal landscape paintings created for galleries and private commissioners. The beach front view from Shelby and Alex’s Westin Hilton Head wedding was such a dream for Ben to paint.

The ballroom there at the Westin Hilton Head is so unique as it sits overlooking the beach with a gorgeous ocean view. Shelby’s mom was confident this was the perfect moment to capture for their surprise live wedding painting. And working with Trish Beck Events, we knew this was going to be truly incredible!
