Tonya and Taylor First Dance

This wedding painting captures the cherished first dance—a beautiful depiction of an old tradition deeply rooted in American culture. Rather than executing the artwork on the spot, I sought inspiration from carefully taken photographs during the reception. The decision was wise, as the restaurant's low lighting would have posed significant challenges to create an exquisite piece in real-time.

The focal point of this mesmerizing painting is the heartfelt first dance shared between the newlyweds. It radiates an aura of love and joy, symbolizing the beginning of their journey as a married couple. The tender connection between the husband and wife is palpable, creating an emotional resonance that pulls viewers into the scene. Many couples want to capture their First Dance on photos or paintings like in this case. Very often couples also want to capture the Last Dance between the bride and her father - the moment reminding of the profound bond shared between a daughter and her father as they bid farewell to one phase of life, embracing the new.
