If you’ve ever been to Charleston, South Carolina, you’ll know that the Spanish moss is a fixture of the historic city, and that characteristic was the chief inspiration behind Whitney’s beautiful Charleston bridals. Armed with a classic style that has a modern feel, this bridal portrait session epitomizes the charm of Charleston. All around the verdant greenery and foliage offers a fresh pop of color and beneath the moss-covered branches stands the luminous bride.
Whitney’s bridal gown is an off-the-shoulder look with lace detail and a flattering mermaid style silhouette.
The sun-soaked grounds highlight her fair skin and blonde hair. It’s endearing to see the bride next to the towering trees of Charleston.
Her hair and makeup are impeccable thanks to a sleek updo and red lip.
The Spanish moss drips down from the tree branches as Whitney dreamily holds her all-white bouquet.
The second part of the session shows her with her veil. She looks picturesque with the long chapel-length veil hanging down past her shoulders and collecting at the hem of her dress.
The private house behind her shows the quintessential Charleston architecture with its traditional Southern feel.
The path is lined with trees all covered with Spanish moss that gives Charleston such a distinct quality.
The back of Whitney’s gown is stunning with its lace details at her shoulders and train.
Her bright smile shows her excitement at starting this journey with the one she loves most.
We’re certain the aged moss-covered trees of Charleston hold many stories. For Whitney, they’ll always remind her of a special time where, as a bride, she stood beneath the branches and soaked in the beauty of her life.
