I'm so excited to share these images! Earlier this spring, I traveled to Charleston to collaborate with Lucy Cuneo. Lucy and her husband welcomed me into their home with the most sincere Southern hospitality I've ever experienced (I'm talking chocolates on the nightstand and sweet welcome notes telling me to make myself home!). We had such a wonderful few days, prepping for the shoot, having drinks at Zero George (a must!), styling images together, swapping stories and indulging in Charleston's amazing restaurants. We designed this wedding inspiration at RiverOaks, where owner Marianne, a talented designer and wonderful host, welcomed us and helped us really utilize her gorgeous property. Brides, if you're looking for a private, stunning venue with Southern charm, a coastal view, and European details, you really should contact RiverOaks (and then book me!).

Our concept was to show a bride's entire wedding day, from quiet moments as she dresses to seeing her groom for the first time to the end of the evening among flickering candles. I had such an amazing time designing the florals for this one - rich jewel tones and a loose, whimsical shape... It was a dream and all the better as I was able to design everything outside on the property. We had an amazing team (please see credits below!) and I am grateful for all their hard work and talents. I'm so lucky to call them friends. This shoot was also published on Magnolia Rouge.
