This gorgeous style shoot was designed to represent the Southern charm that so many brides are wanting! Thanks to Krista Lee Photography for capturing these images and to Ashley’s Bride Guide for featuring it on their blog! Enjoy!

Krista of Southern Soiree Event Planning & Design says, “The inspiration for the shoot was old Southern elegance with the title ‘Magnolias and Cotton.’ As a wedding designer and stylist, it’s important to produce styled shoots that are feasible for the every day bride. I drew my vision from the antebellum South, but added a modern element so that it doesn’t come across as too ‘themed.’ This is a morning wedding, which is a throwback to previous decades, and shoots beautifully! The venue lends itself to a turn of the century colonial, but offers a clean polish that many true historic sites don’t possess. The budget was kept in mind to show brides that you can have a beautiful event without breaking the bank. Sometimes less is more, and I wanted to present the option of having a Southern-themed wedding without the ‘DIY’ rustic feel.”





Thanks to these fabulous vendors for making this shoot a success!
