Airlie Gardens Live Wedding Painting

wilmington, North Carolina

This Airlie Gardens live wedding painting was a treat! I grew up in Wilmington, NC so getting to paint in my hometown is always a joy for me. The bride and groom wanted two paintings done – one of their ceremony site and one of the bride’s bouquet. 

I actually really enjoy paintings that don’t necessarily focus on people or figures. There’s so much beauty in the scene and setting where you say I do, and so many beautiful emotions connected along with that place. Sometimes, just having a painting of that moment and having the feeling captured in paint and pigment can transport you back “into” it when it’s simply the scene you looked at while saying your vows. 

I also really love getting to paint wedding flowers and bridal bouquets on site, because they can stand alone so well for years to come in your home and are a different take on your day than the standard photos or paintings of the two of you!

Plus, when the subjects are somewhat simpler than people, like this ceremony scene and floral painting, I am able to actually complete two paintings on site. Typically, I don’t offer this service as completing two paintings with people in them is simply more than I can do in one night!
