Hay-Adams Hotel Wedding and Reception Painting

On October 20, 2018, I was hired to paint a special wedding on the top floor of the Hay-Adams Hotel, located facing the White House in Washington D.C.

 Before I arrived I asked the Bride what she wanted captured in the painting, and she especially wanted the night view of the White House.

Since I arrive several hours before the wedding starts, I saw the day view, but painted it as if it was already dark.

I painted the ceremony and then the sun went down, and painted the reception for the rest of the evening, including their first dance.

Guests admired the stunning view all night.

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!
