Black Tie Gadsen House Wedding

Everything about this wedding inspiration shoot makes my heart happy! The gorgeous Gadsen House in Charleston, SC was such a treat to shoot at! From the stunning architecture inside the house with golden chandeliers and beautiful moldings, to the gorgeous courtyard and porches. It was such a treat to shoot there! Secondly, the color palette for this wedding was my absolute favorite-black and white infused with soft pinks and greens. If I could marry a color scheme, this would be the one! It was so elegant and timeless! The list of vendors was certainly a Charleston dream team too! The gorgeous florals provided by larger than life events were soft and romantic. And I could have sat at the reception table for hours admiring the gorgeous blooms and place settings. The Hayley Paige gown provided by Bridals by Jodi was a show stopper for sure! The movement and flow of that gown along with the delicate lace top me my heart swoon! And my favorite part of the entire day was the gorgeous dove release provided by Holy City Doves! It was by far the coolest thing I have ever photographed and it made the perfect ending to a sweet day! I insist that my brides look into doing the same for their weddings! You won’t regret it!!

Despite the high temperature and humidity during this shoot, I enjoyed every minute of it and I was sad to leave. I came home with so many incredible images from this day that I couldn’t wait to share them with each of you!
