Sheep, Spanish moss, and sophistication were the words of the day for this styled shoot at Middleton Place in Charleston, South Carolina. Inspired by bygone luxe, this styled shoot boasts an old-world wedding feel with an ethereal twist.
The aging brick details of the venue were met with historic chimneys and vines that cascaded down the structure, emphasizing the years passed and serving as an eye-catching backdrop for this shoot.
Her first gown was quite the added touch to her ceremony, as its layered feathered details turned heads and gave the bride-to-be the most glowing aura. She then changed into her reception dress that boasted effortless charm with its simplicity. Although this wasn’t all for her statement style pieces throughout the night, she later added one more gown into the mix, that spoke of unique and lasting love. Its strapless bodice and detached puffy sleeves tied together the entirety of her wedding day attire.
The multi-tiered cake from Sweet Rhi was a statement centerpiece for the reception as it rested prominently on a vintage display table. The winding designs of the dessert table coordinated with the stunning invitation suite by Floraison Design Co.
While Southern Bride does not wish to promote the use of plantations as wedding venues or as places of celebration, we feel it is important information to share that the venue of this shoot, a former plantation, has been operating since the 1970s as a 501-c-3 non-profit, educational trust. Tracey Todd, CEO, of the Middleton Place Foundation shared with us their mission
– “Middleton Place voices its mission to enact positive change while connecting people with the historical events of American history. All weddings held at Middleton Place are not for profit, and any revenues go directly to education programs and scholarship funds for the African American descendant community of the property.”
