Lauren + Jordan
The Jefferson Hotel
24 x 36 in. | Oil on Canvas
What a joy it was to return to downtown Richmond’s iconic Jefferson Hotel for Lauren and Jordan’s wedding day. Jordan’s mother commissioned Ben to capture their first dance about a year before their wedding date … and the best part was that she was able to keep their live wedding painting a surprise for an entire year! Needless to say, it was well worth the wait! Ben was so inspired by the beautiful historic architecture of The Empire Ballroom with her sparkling vintage chandeliers and dreamy blush uplighting. Blooms at The Jefferson created statement centerpieces that so perfectly highlighted the elegant beauty of the evening. The ballroom was absolutely glowing for this sweet couple shared their first dance as husband and wife, surrounded by their family and closest friends! What an absolute honor to be part of their wedding day!
