Jeanne photographed Jessica’s Boone Hall Plantation bridal portraits and we are elated to share them with you! Just a few miles from busy Downtown Charleston in booming Mount Pleasant is Boone Hall Plantation, one of the country’s most well-preserved cotton plantations. Driving through the gates is stepping into a different world of oak-lined avenues, beautiful waterfront vistas and a seasonal cotton field. Beginning in the cotton field, Jeanne caught Jessica lost in the wisps of the blooms. The effect is ethereal, as if the bride was swimming in a sea of white and green. After a quick stop by the iconic avenue of oaks, Jeanne sat Jessica beneath trees and took detailed portraits of her beautiful gown. A simple, off-the-shoulder wedding dress gave way to flowing embellished skirt complimented by an ornate, billowy veil. Jessica also included her dalmatian in some playful photos before heading home, a fun end to a perfect visit to Boone Hall.
A couple of months later, Jessica returned to Boone Hall Plantation to join Ryan at the altar and we were blessed to be able to capture this beautiful occasion. The wedding was colored in vibrant pinks and greens that complimented the seasonal blooms of the plantation. Even the center aisle was tied to the venue with mason jars filled with cotton blooms, perfectly southern chic. The bride arrived in a horse-drawn carriage and, after exchanging vows, joined her new husband in some portraits by the sprawling oaks. A warmly lit reception followed in the intimate Cotton Dock, where the newlyweds enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by fun frozen pops and candy, a bit of levity to an event filled with southern tradition. Congratulations again and many years of happiness for the two of you.
