Madison & Rivers | Charleston, South Carolina

Photographing this beautiful inspiration shoot made me feel like I was stepping into a chapter from a Victorian romance novel. The scene set amidst the cascading Spanish moss of modern-day Charleston. The vibrant colors of Madison’s bouquet popped against the shades of greenery that surrounded her and Rivers. Her romantic makeup and hair perfectly complemented the stunning Alexandra Grecco gown, and her Bella Belle shoes further amplified the romantic sentiment, the gold lace resembling Victorian fabrics that are no longer made. Step into the past with this shoot and experience how this old time period can be a perfect fit for the modern bride.

Beautifully designed for the Michael and Carina Workshop, every detail was styled to perfection by East Made Event Company. Emily Artistry did a stunning job with Madison’s hair and makeup and the floral arrangements by La Fleur du Jour were flawless and a perfect complement to the venue, RiverOaks Charleston (see all vendor credits at the end of the post).
