Ben & Wed on Canvas is a MUST for your special day!

I really still am in awe of how amazing having Ben create a live painting at our wedding was. This was hands down the best decision we ever could have made to make our wedding day even more special and memorable. If you are reading the review you have to trust me and BOOK HIM! He truly is the kindest, most personable guy, mingling with our family and friends throughout the night and allowing them to watch all parts of his amazing painting process. Ben as well as his wife, were in contact with me well before the wedding to prepare for the day to minimize any stress the day of. Ben asked me questions on exactly what part of the night that I wanted him to capture, and he was so enthusiastic and excited! I am still receiving phone calls and text messages from family and friends begging me to see the final product! I truly feel that Ben made our wedding day the best day of our lives, and now we can actually have a piece of such a special time, in our home, forever! Thank you Ben! You truly are amazing at what you do!!!

Best Decision We Made

Where do I even begin? Choosing Wed on Canvas was one of the best decisions that we made when planning our wedding. First of all, Jen and Ben are the dream team. From the first time I met Jen, she was so warm and enthusiastic. I changed the location of my photo several times, and she walked me through all of my options and was so patient. On the day of, Ben was fantastic. You truly cannot overemphasize how much guests enjoy the live painting experience. Ben not only painted our day perfectly, he was engaging and spoke with guests as they asked him questions. Two months later, people in our lives are still commenting on how amazing our live painting was. The finished product is STUNNING. My husband and I were perfectly depicted, down to his dimple. Even looking at the wedding party in the background, the head shapes, etc. look just like them. The colors are beautiful and bright. I feel so many emotions every time that I look at the painting. We even ordered thank you cards with the painting on them, which we are excited to send to our guests. I would absolutely recommend Wed on Canvas. From start to finish, it was an incredible and memorable experience.

So cool and unique!!

I can't express how much we enjoyed having Wed on Canvas be a part of our wedding last weekend!! We worked with Jen and Ben leading up to the wedding to choose the perfect moment of our day to be depicted in the painting, and they worked really hard to tailor the painting to us personally. They are both such genuinely nice people and Ben was a joy to have at our celebration! He is so interactive and was very engaging with every guest who came over to check out the painting. Our guests had so much fun watching the painting develop over the night - so many people commented how unique and cool it was (and several tried to persuade Ben to add them into the scene haha)!! We we will treasure this gift forever.

Ben Keys captured a most memorable portrait of my daughter's wedding. He even painted details that included her grandparents sitting among the guests. My daughter and son-in-law will be able to share this moment with their children and future generations!
