Love In Bloom was a collaboration between local wedding vendors for the purpose of creating a whimsical, romantic shoot. Our goal was to show off The Beaufort Inn, one of the Lowcountry’s favorite venues, in a way that hadn’t been done before. The Spring palette was perfect for the Inn’s environment.

Tell us about your ideas! What was the inspiration behind it all? Did you have a specific theme, style or color palette?

With spring right around the corner, we felt it was the perfect color scheme to bring in the season. Once The Beaufort Inn agreed to be a part of our shoot, we used their history and grounds for inspiration. Our goal was to showcase the Inn’s gardens and courtyards in a way that hasn’t been done before. The whimsical, romantic theme perfectly complimented the Inn’s environment while allowing our vendors to show their creativity.


Let’s talk shoot decor.

We used a lot of greenery and flowers. We wanted it to feel like spring was sprouting from both the ceremony and reception areas. The ring we used for the ceremony backdrop was commissioned by Susan DeLoach Photography, and we felt it was the perfect element to add some interest to our shoot. Bombshell: it’s actually a swing we converted into a ceremony “arch” with a base! The brass candlesticks, gold votives, Audrey lanterns, and green candles added the perfect final touches.


What were the florals like? Did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centerpieces or ceremony backdrop?

We had flowers everywhere! Eucalyptus lined the ceremony ring and overflowed from the centerpiece on the sweetheart table. We used a range of roses from white to cream to blush to antique lavender with peach and fuchsia colored accent flowers.


Let’s talk fashion… describe the looks in detail.

The dress I chose was a mixture of white and nude with lace on the bodice and a flowy skirt. The sweetheart neckline complimented the romantic theme. The oval stoned engagement ring and pearl bracelets and earrings lent a classy, vintage air to the look.
