Dreamy Southern Bridal Session Under Magnolia Trees

Rich color, dreamy spring greens, and a wedding dress fit for a princess turn this sweet Southern bridal session by Hope Helmuth Photography into an absolute fairy tale! The peacock inspired color scheme for the florals designed by Charleston Flower Girl added sophisticated jewel toned touches to the lush grounds of America’s oldest public gardens.

This charming flatlay combined the pink calligraphy of August Lettering and Co with these stunning Cinderella shoes by Something Bleu!

The gardens outside Charleston provided ample backdrops for stunning bridal portraits, with abundant gardens in the full bloom of a South Carolina spring.

The burgundy, lavender, and ivory flowers Charleston Flower Girl added to the bride’s bouquet created a stunning peacock color scheme, thanks to roses, hellebore, and lilac blossoms.

The bride, Sarah, looked radiant in an A-line tulle gown from BHLDN, with delicate floral lace embroidery that made it perfect for a romantic garden wedding!

Her elegant bridal updo by Pampered & Pretty paired a braided crown with a relaxed chignon, to create the the perfect hairstyle for a Southern spring wedding.

Long tables set in the shade of oak trees featured an abundance of colorful flowers in a long runner. Local plants added to the stunning centerpiece, creating a magnificent focal point against the pearl silk tablecloths and modern gold place settings.

Snyder Events dressed the reception tables with this chic place setting of bone china and gold flatware, with simple and elegant gold candlesticks for the elegant tapers.

Live Oaks with sweeping Spanish Moss gave this bridal session a quintessentially Southern feel!

A surprise appearance by one of the local peacocks gives a peek into the inspiration for the color scheme!
