Charlotte Wedding Photographer | Charlotte, NC : Jake + Harper

Jake & Harper’s Fall engagement session took place at the historic Horseshoe in downtown Columbia, SC. I had never shot there before, and there were so many beautiful spots that it was hard to choose which to use. It reminded me a lot of Charleston, SC which is where I’m from, so that made this place extra special. This good looking couple is set to wed this June, and I could not be more excited to be the one to capture their wedding day!

Southern Wedding with Vintage Charm : Charlotte NC Wedding Photographer | Rock Hill, SC

styledweddingshoot-1-100

Today’s blog post is a Southern styled wedding shoot I photographed earlier this year. The planner & designer for this shoot (Ashley with Magnolia Events) was inspired by photographs of her grandmother’s wedding day, which are displayed in her office. “Looking at these photos made me wonder what my grandmother’s wedding might look like today,” she said.

As you can see below, this elegant southern wedding shoot was a perfect balance of classic-southern with a contemporary, romantic flair. In the South, there are so many special details that can be incorporated into a wedding, and many of them translate through generations. The shoot took place at a Southern estate – Hutchison Estate at Arrowhead Dairy Farm – and the design incorporated many traditions of the South, including a Bible bouquet, vintage tins which served as flower vases, toile, homemade moon pies, bottled Coca-Cola, cake pulls, lace and silhouettes. Lush with vibrant flowers, this design is perfect for any bride who wants to have a charming southern wedding with a contemporary twist.

I absolutely loved this team of vendors and am thrilled with the way everything turned out. Find all vendor information and web links at the bottom of this post. Enjoy a peek!
