Something Blue In a Garden With You: A Charleston Styled Shoot

This Charleston garden wedding styled shoot has all of the classic charm of a Southern wedding mixed with elements of luxury sophistication.  With the historic  Governor Thomas Bennett House as the backdrop, this shoot planned by Haley Guthrie & Baylye Burnette of We Do! Charleston, is sure to inspire those desiring a timeless and romantic look. We are in love with everything from the floral archway with natural woody textures and pastel blossoms created by Roadside Blooms, to the 1950 dove gray Packard getaway car provided by Lowcountry Valet.
