Maria and John's Wedding at the Venetian in Garfield, NJ
2011
Acrylic on Canvas
24" X 30"
At their fall wedding at the Venetian, the couple wanted me to capture the splendor of this enormous banquet hall with its signature grand staircase entrance. I also included the brightly-lit centerpieces, bride and groom, both sets of parents, and the maid of honor with her baby daughter.

Most of the painting was done onsite, with some touch-ups and details added in the studio.
