Timeless Traditional Wedding Inspiration in Charleston

Today, we are swooning over this breathtaking styled shoot. Hosted in the ever-romantic Charleston, this wedding does not disappoint. This historic venue has been around since the 1900s, and has everything a girl could want on her big day- from the striking wood floors to the heavenly windows that let in an abundance of natural sunlight. If you want a traditional wedding with a bit of a twist, take note of what this talented team put together.

From the grey tablescape, blooming yellow flowers, and delicate letterpress invitations, we are loving how these dreamy colors and textures effortlessly complement one another. The bride’s unique wedding dress is the real star of the show though. We cannot take our eyes off of its stunning lace top! The bride’s soft makeup look and elegant up-do are truly a look to remember.

Grey Classic Wedding on High Grove Estate

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this stunning classic wedding inspiration with you all! Set on an elegant Southern estate overlooking Lake Laurel, you’ll quickly see why these vendors fell in love with its vintage charm.

Perfect for any time of the year, this chic color palette is neutral enough to be used during any season. We love the various grey hues, and baby blue colors paired with just a hint of mint. Though this wedding feels traditional, it also encompasses some boho style flare. This swoon-worthy wedding dress has an embroidered lace bodice with an illusion neckline. If that doesn’t make you fall head over heels, the cathedral train will!

Their elegant floral watercolor invitations set the tone for this event. Filled with soft creams, pastel blues, and chic grey tones, this vintage design perfectly matches the reception decor.

Romantic Tiffany Blue Wedding Theme in Spring

Today, we are swooning over this pretty mint colored wedding in South Carolina. If you are planning a spring wedding, make sure you remember the fun details that Lance and Alexis picked out for their special day. If you love baby blue hues, you’ll fall head over heels for this Tiffany blue wedding theme.

From the custom mint colored ceremony programs, to the long flowing bridesmaids dresses, we are smitten with how these two used one cohesive color palette throughout the ceremony and reception venue. We also think the strategic pop of color within the wedding bouquet is genius. The florals enhance the timeless mint color, without detracting from it. Alexis and Lance’s custom guest book is adorable, and a fun way to show wedding guests your unique love story!
