On a beautiful summer day in June 2019, Yong & Kevin said “I do” to spending forever together during their gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremony at Graeme Park about 40 minutes outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their wedding day was beautiful from start to finish, which you’ll see in these gorgeous images kindly shared with me by their photographer Dyanna LaMora. Their color scheme included blush, blues, creams & of course, lush greenery which made for the most soft, elegant feel. With every detail including getting ready, their tea ceremony, a first look, their ceremony and their reception so beautifully covered, I’m still reliving this gorgeous wedding day, even one year later!
My live painting of their wedding ceremony was a surprise gift from Yong to her Groom, Kevin! Since they chose to have their wedding at two different venues, I arrived early and set up my painting supplies over at their reception venue Cairnwood Estate, also about 40 minutes from Philadelphia. After setting up, I drove over to Graeme Park to take reference photographs of the ceremony. This allowed me to work off of those reference images and create their painting during the reception at the estate.
I personally love all of the beautiful, vibrant colors of their painting, particularly the blue accents of the windows set against the brick. However, my absolute very favorite element of their painting ended up being the four little doves in the upper corner of the canvas. This was a special request from the Bride as a way to represent four of their family members who had previously passed and weren’t able to physically be at the wedding (scroll to the bottom to see). I always love adding in those personalized touches that make the final painting even more special and sentimental for my couples!
I am so thankful to have been a part of Yong and Kevin’s special day. It’s always an honor to be trusted to create such a special work of art. Happy one year anniversary, Y & K! You two were a dream!
