Cherilyn and Joe's Wedding at the Palace in Somerset Park, NJ
2011
Acrylic on Canvas
24" X 36"
This festive wedding took place a few weeks before Christmas, and the elegant Palace ballroom was decked out with wreaths, trees, and red flowers. In addition to capturing the warm ambiance of the room, the bride and groom requested I depict the impressive choreography of their first dance. I also included both sets of parents, the maid of honor and best man, additional bridesmaids, and the bride's brother on the right, who was also the very talented DJ at the party. I painted during the reception for about 4-5 hours, then completed the details in the studio.
