We are so excited to share Sonya and Christian’s finished live painting from their Isle of Palms wedding ceremony. Having painted coastal landscapes for galleries for years, it’s always so exciting when Ben is able to paint a beach wedding painting!

Wild Dunes Resort at Isle of Palms is one of the best spots for a beach wedding in the Charleston area!

It’s difficult to find a beach wedding venue that has both a great beach and great amenities for a reception! Wild Dunes Resort is quite possibly the most beautiful beach wedding venues here in the Charleston area. The beach is just a quick walk from the resort! We also love that the resort offers a beautiful indoor ballroom for receptions! It’s truly the best of both worlds!

Sonya and Christian had their heart set on their live wedding painting capturing the gorgeous beach ceremony there on Isle of Palms. And they could not have had more beautiful weather that day! They were really excited for the painting to just capture the two of them with that beach backdrop and their gorgeous florals. Their tropical florals were a perfect choice for their luxury, coastal wedding!

As Charleston locals, the beach view meant so much to them, and was the main reason they chose Wild Dunes Resort!
