It’s hard to choose just one thing to love about these ethereal southern classic bridal portraits by Catherine Smeader Photography – so much gorgeousness happening here! From the stately mansion venue to the pretty little cocktails adding flair to the dessert table, this shoot shouts sophisticated southern charm. A Parisian-inspired off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline gown from Unbridaled was accented perfectly with a chic loose updo, mauve pout and bold lashes by BP Artistry, while the tablescape shows off a truly southern style with fruit accents and peach tones off setting summery blue linens. Beneath the billowing oaks of Sandlewood Manor, the bride looks radiant as she greets the resident horses, breathes in the warm summer breeze and lets the sunlight hit her shoulders, holding a textured bouquet of ivories, peaches and blush by Ode to Joy Flowers. Dainty gold jewels mirror the dainty gold calligraphy on the wax-sealed invitation suite, while Becca Cakes provides the icing on the cake with a classic three-tiered beauty adorned with lace-like floral trim. Any way you look at it, these southern bridal portraits evoke a timeless, classic feel as the bride celebrates her upcoming special day. Enjoy!
