Yesterday I had the privilege to paint a beautiful and joyous wedding celebration.

I began in the room with the Chuppah, and spent a few hours capturing the mood.  I saw it suffused with light.  There were candles on either side of the aisle and scattered rose petals.
Patricia Bennett in front of her started painting of the Chuppah at Woodholme Country Club, photo probably by Woodholme staff.

Due to space constraints, it wasn't possible for me to paint the ceremony.
At each event I find that unexpected things happen and flexibility is crucial to success.  I did photograph the ceremony, and found the most memorable moments to be when the bride gave the groom the wine to drink.  And when the flower girl threw the petals into the aisle.

My remaining work is to paint in the ceremony.  And add the bride and groom to the lower left, with a couple other family members...

To be continued...
