Stylish Southern Bridal Inspiration With A Twist

Elizabeth Greene

Leave it up to East Made Event Company to mix old and new to create something absolutely magical. And then leave it up to Michael and Carina to capture said magic oh so beautifully for our lucky, lucky eyes. Our classic Charleston bride shines bright with a full peony bouquet in hand, but add in her crop top two-piece wedding look and we're taken aback by this stylish surprise... in all the best ways. See it all right this way! (And stay tuned... more Michael and Carina bridal beauty coming this afternoon...) From Michael and Carina Photography... “Classic Traditions”“I equate peonies with love because they’re the first blooms of summer.” ― Isaac MizrahiA bridal portrait session by the water at RiverOaks in Charleston, South Carolina - adding a modern twist to our Southern, classic bride, we drew inspiration from the juxtaposition of old and new by pairing traditional bridal elements like a long veil and all-peony statement bouquet with a modern crop top two-piece wedding gown.
