Elegant bold Charleston wedding inspiration
Happy March, all! Today’s Victorian-inspired vignette as captured by Janine Licare Photography with creative direction from East Made Event Company has us swooning over delicate details paired with bold, rich color. The saturated jewel tones against soft neutrals lend themselves to both fall and spring, and the ever so slight antique influence adds an air of magic while anchoring us to the romance of the present moment: an intimate ceremony at the RiverOaks Charleston.
Janine tells it, Photographing this beautiful inspiration shoot made me feel like I was stepping into a chapter from a Victorian romance novel. The scene set amidst the cascading Spanish moss of modern-day Charleston. The vibrant colors of Madison’s bouquet popped against the shades of greenery that surrounded her and Rivers. Her romantic makeup and hair perfectly complemented the stunning Alexandra Grecco gown, and her shoes further amplified the romantic sentiment, the gold lace resembling Victorian fabrics that are no longer made.
Smitten with these paper pretties Maurelle Calligraphy dreamt up, as inspired by the venue.

The table was designed in a manner that allowed it to blend in with its surroundings, almost as if it had been there forever. From the hanging floral chandelier to the romantic candles, moss runner, and beautiful ceramic plates, every detail was styled to perfection.
Wildflour Pastry even continued the Spanish moss motif with this peachy lil’ cake. Love!
So lovely to see a modern take on something as timeless as Victorian romance, ya know? Be sure to check out everyone involved in this wedding inspiration below:
