Cross and Main Wedding – Double Take Live Wedding Painting Package in Youngsville, NC

Markeisha and Patrick’s Cross and Main wedding was absolutely stunning!

Cross and Main is a lovely warehouse-style venue right on the outskirts of Raleigh, located in downtown Youngsville, NC. Natural light fills the space thanks to the big windows and the sunset peeking through to Markeisha and Patrick’s ceremony was the cherry on top!

For their Cross and Main wedding, they booked my Double-Take Package which meant that I was able to paint their ceremony as well as their reception! The rich colors from their theme of navy and burgundy really brought the paintings to life and were a joy to paint with.

The Ceremony

Their Ceremony was so sweet and special, complete with a paper airplane send-off that made everyone swoon. Adding that element into their ceremony painting may just have been my favorite part. Any time there’s a special unique element to a celebration, it’s a meaningful addition to your live painting and a way to honor and remember it in years to come, too!

The Reception

Their first dance was heartfelt and touching, and it was so sweet to see the newlyweds start the celebration on the dance floor. It was important to also capture their cute cake wagon, complete with their initials on each side of the cake. Incorporating their wedding colors of burgundy and navy blue throughout the florals and overall painting was a joy, too!
