    Putting together this lookbook has been amazing. Lots of hard work and care updating the styles, but always staying true to our “look” and vibe. Representing a young southern woman who is strong, independent, fun, and always glamorous, we are so thrilled with the outcome of shoot. Much in part to some incredible vendors, this “dream team” has gone above and beyond!

    The darling and crazy talented Rachel Red captured our hearts along with these amazing images. The use of light and how it hits the shantung and faille fabric of our dresses was so exciting and she’s also just a dream to work with!

    What bridesmaid look is complete without some amazing accessories to go with it? Our neighbor, Candy Shop Vintage gave us the most beautiful pieces to use for the shoot. From earrings to bracelets, we wish we could say we had a favorite, but every piece was gorgeous.

    Our good friend Ashley Brook Perryman did an excellent job on hair and makeup. Every look was perfect for our vibe. Sweet, charming, and oh-so-glamorous.

    The styling  of this veranda by Catherine M Austin Designs has us blown away. We love the tropical feels and we definitely didn’t want to leave the space. It fit in perfectly with our retro glam vibe.

    This wallpaper is jaw dropping. From Julianne Taylor and called “Wallflower”, we couldn’t take our eyes off of it.

    This painted wall behind our model is unbelievable. Hand painted by Aubrey Brackett Fine Finishes at the CSOL Designer Show House, we were thrilled to have it be part of our shoot. Simply exquisite!

    The beautiful Anna chose our Abby dress for her bridesmaid’s dresses in Charcoal Shantung and they look phenomenal. We are so thrilled for Anna and her new husband and wish them many many years of married bliss!

    The wedding was featured on Charleston’s Weddings’, The Wedding Row, and every gorgeous detail was featured by the oh-so-talented, Jennings King Photography. Scrolling through one beautiful photo after another, it was hard to pick a favorite. So here are few (or more) of our absolute favorite shots of Anna’s wedding.

    Anna and her husband under this tree for their ceremony was nothing short of fantastic. The styling by A Charleston Bride was breathtaking and a true statement of her visual talent!

    Oh, and we can’t forget those amazing florals by Stephanie Gibbs Events! A beautiful white collection of anemones and roses. We bet they smelled amazing!

    Abby Dress In Charcoal at Lowndes Grove Plantation

    These Lulas are gorgeous! We are so thrilled that Anna chose to have her girls in our Abby dress in Charcoal Shantung. The fit of these dresses fit every shape and they leave a stunning impression. Complete with pockets of course, these dresses accentuate the bride’s look while also giving bridesmaids many opportunities to wear her Abby dress after the wedding.

    Colorfully Charmed

     

    It was such a pleasure to see this beautiful shoot. From beginning to end, the sweetest details were all thought through with care and had such a whimsical spirit! All the gorgeous images captured by Hilleary Photography make us smile! The coloring and lighting was almost like a fairytale dream.

     

    The details and planning were brought together by Beautiful Bride Events and were top notch as well. Even Elise Nuckols Art was there to hand paint the Kate McDonald hand painted McLeod gown. And let’s not forget about those amazingly pink and perfect florals! #allthehearteyes!

     

    Please see the full shoot over on Cake and Lace! You definitely don’t want to miss any of the charming details.

    Madelyn Dress

    Our Madelyn dress in Cement Shantung is certainly a favorite and we love the simplicity of the color with her ruffled collar. What we love most about the Madelyn paired next to the Kate McDonald McLeod, is how it still stands out next to that hand painted beauty yet allows the bridal gown to be a statement.

    Our other favorite thing is that she has pockets. Of course.
