A Whimsical Charleston Wedding With the Perfect Fall Palette
Baily and Matt said “I do” on a beautiful autumn afternoon at Boone Hall Plantation, and boy did Bailey dress up this Southern spot in fall splendor. Their romantic ceremony took place under a canopy of oak trees on the plantation’s breathtaking Avenue of the Oaks, and they danced the night away at the Cotton Dock, a space they transformed with stunning fall hues. Bailey filled her laid-back, rustic reception space with the most elegant details, refined furniture and handmade drapery, to create a uniquely elegant Southern celebration.
Gracefully captured by Southern wedding photographer JoPhoto, this blush, burgundy, and gold affair will leave you dreaming of fall nuptials.
Bailey and Matt’s college love story is one for the books,” says Kathleen of JoPhoto. “They are both swimmers, and they met at the College of Charleston while on the swim team. Bailey grew up in Mt. Pleasant, and it was always her dream to get married at Boone Hall Plantation. Her dream came true… It was beautifully breathtaking and perfect in every way!”
