Trendy Charleston SC Bridal Portraits. Set in the charming and historic streets of Charleston, South Carolina, this fashion-forward bride went in the opposite direction of traditional for her bridal portraits. The colorful and classic architecture is the perfect backdrop for the over-the-top, high-fashion look this bride was going for, complete with black and white flair.
A silver sequined skirt from Erin Grey Couture was the ideal piece to kick things off. Mixed with a black lace crop top, silver statement necklace, and berry lip, this bride redefines what it means to be bridal.
For a small nod to tradition, she holds an oversized pink rose.
However, she does change into a stunning open back bridal gown, with a twist. She accessories the look with ornate earrings and opts for a black birdcage veil.
The dress features a V-neck with a fit-and-flare design and dramatic tulle skirt. Grasping the same oversized pink rose for added color, she looks lovely standing in a white doorway.
Added to the fashion mix is a black and white striped crop top and full tulle skirt. This is definitely puts a fun spin on the classic bridal gown. She completes the outfit with a pink peony bouquet, side-swept â€˜do, and a beaded headband. The splashes of light blue from the shutters is a refreshing addition.
She stands in the doorway of an historic house, underneath a lantern. How fittingly she complements the black door behind her with her black and white ensemble.
Strolling around the house, she pauses in front of a lush garden wall, and makes her way to the cobblestone street.
Her unique and vibrant attire would stand out on even the busiest thoroughfare of Charleston.
A few black and white photos cap off the shoot, capturing both a sense of tradition and a yearn for modern trend all in a few breathtaking moments.
The fearlessness and sass from this bride makes this bridal portrait session one that Charleston won't soon forget.
