Sometimes we see a set of really, really dreamy photos, and while we love them so, we always want to make sure there’s tons of super inspiring, tangible details for all you in planning mode at this very moment. So when Lushana Bale sent over these gorgeous images she captured at Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, we really poured over the details. Luckily, stylist Tristan Needham and the team created such a romantic, and yes—attainable—blush wedding scene that we think you’ll be pinning to all the moodboards for many moons to come:Lushana Bale explains, This past January I travelled to Charleston South Carolina for what promised to be a beautiful shoot! As soon as I set foot on the beautiful historic Lowndes Grove Plantation it felt like being immediately transported into another time and another world. The talented Tristan Needham put together a shoot that oozed romance, nostalgia and elegance with just the right amount of contemporary minimalism. The location was all old world Southern charm, but Tristan balanced that with modern touches like the minimalist stationary set, simple lines of the bridal dress and a minimalist table setting.
They started the day inside at the venue to show off a few pre-wedding moments in the bridal suite.Tessa Pinner dreamt up an intricate, delicate all-white tiered wedding cake.
The soft peach, blush and cream floral palette created by Ginny of Enemies of the Average were in many ways the star of the shoot and really pulled together all the other elements. They matched perfectly with the dreamy soft light of the late afternoon sun and created such a beautiful pastel tone to the al fresco tablescape.
Any brides-to-be out there planning to adorn your wedding gown with a romantic cape like this? BHLDN was behind this romantic yet modern ensemble.
Their real couple made the shoot all the more inspiring, didn’t they? Find more images in our gallery!
