We will also be sharing Insider Tips throughout the year, so be on the lookout!


In August of 2016, we worked with a team of vendors to create the “Modern Southern Belle” styled shoot. Well this shoot was the shoot that kept on giving and was featured, 9… YES 9 times in 2017. The following publications featured this shoot: Aisle PerfectEugenia CoutureWedding ColorsThe Carolinas MagazineThe Wed CliqueBorrowed and BlueA Princess InspiredThe Wedding Fanatic, and Black Nuptials.

In designing this shoot, we asked ourselves what would a Modern Southern Belle look like? Well this shoot captured this idea perfectly. Jessica Hunt Photography has an eye for capturing the right light. She made the shoot the dreamiest!!  The Eugenia Couture gown from London and Lace was the star of this shoot. It shows the exact definition of the modern Southern Belle. At first glance, you see a typical ballroom gown, but when the bride walks you see the contemporary style of a high skirt underneath the skirt, Our female model, Jessica Brady, looked flawless in EVERY frame and is also an SC wedding vendor and did her makeup for the shoot. The Black Tux provided the dapper wear for our male model, Brian Gardner. 

Paper Dreams & Keepsakes fused the vision of lace, silk, and gold foil into a gorgeous invitation suite. Leen Machine Calligraphy provided all the calligraphy, including hand-lettered place cards on South Carolina cutouts. Xpressions Floral Design created the lush florals. Charmingly Southern Vintage Rentals provided the dusty blue velvet couch, patterned dinner plates, and gold candlesticks.

Silver Spoon Bake Shop provided three gorgeous cakes. These cakes feature some stunning gold design and blush accents. They incorporated pearls, metallic gold, and shades of pink into the design. Does it get any more Southern than pearls and pink? I don’t think so!

Kayla of Vivid: Cut. Color. Style. was on hand to give our bride a stunning loose braid. Southern(er)s are all about helping one another. So, a friend Molly from Molly Fornadel Events Design provided the gold flatware. The gold-rimmed chargers and plates came from Pier 1 Imports. The pink chiffon runner, gold sequin runner, and peach disk sequin tablecloth were used to soften the rustic look of the tables provided by Party Crush Shop.
