Fabulous Friday: Wed on Canvas

Here at Pure Luxe Bride, we are all about helping you create a wedding that is unique and special to you and your future husband! One of our favorite unique Charleston vendors is Wed on Canvas.  The talented artist, Ben Keys, spends the wedding day painting your wedding scene live.  It is up to you which part of your wedding you want documented.  Many couples choose to have their first dance, ceremony, or reception location painted.  Not only are you able to take home a stunning canvas displaying the scene of your most memorable day, but it is also entertaining for you and your guests to stop by the artist's station throughout the night to watch the progression of the painting and see it come to life. 

What a great family heirloom that will last you generations!

Historic Rice Mill Wedding: Katie + Ben

Katie + Woody were married at the St. Stephens Episcopal Church with their reception held at the Historical Rice Mill on the Charleston Harbor. The colors reflected the military uniform with navy and ivory incorporated throughout the reception area with green accents.

Once guests entered the candle lit reception, they were greeted by a large ice sculpture of the couples new last initial "W". The sculpture sat above a raw bar filled with oysters and shrimp for cocktail hour. The couple had wedding bingo set up on the bar and on guest seated tables to play throughout the night. For desert, their was a full cupcake bar provided by Sugar Bake Shop. Each flavor of cupcake was sitting on a unique platter provided by the bride. The flavors included Vanilla Blueberry, Chocolate Mint, Cranberry Almond, and Red Velvet. The couple did a traditional military sword cutting for their cake cutting. This crowd got down to Charleston Groove Factory, and the bride even got on stage to play drums with the band! After walking through a paper airplane tunnel, the newlyweds departed on the grooms motorcycle at the end of the night!
