Four Seasons Hotel Wedding and Reception Painting, Baltimore, October 18, 2014

Wedding and Reception at the Four Seasons, Baltimore, Painted by Patricia Bennett
A gorgeous wedding and reception!  Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!

The ceremony was in the Four Seasons' Cobalt room, and the reception was in the Ballroom.
I arrived at 2:30 as the Chuppah was being assembled.  White flowers, then orchids were carefully added by Victoria Claussens' team, then small candles and flowers hanging from golden threads.  As they worked, I set up to begin painting.

The orchids, especially, when placed in the large balls of roses and hydrangeas created the feeling of a magical flower forest.  The floral trompe l'oeil, a large flat wall of gorgeous colorful flowers: yellow irises, pink peonies, roses, hydrangeas was breathtaking.  Even though this floral creation was in the cocktails area, which I could not see, I added it to the painting afterwards.

Victoria Clausen created the superb decor and flowers, and Lindsey Stone with U3 was the perfect event coordinator, and the amazing photographer was Jennifer McMenamin,  (I linked to her photo-story about the event, it's very impressive) and the videographer was Blue Sky Films.  The Four Seasons did catering, which was impeccable as always.
