With the charm of the cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and the stunning architecture, Charleston is always a dream to shoot in and for a Hawaii wedding florist DESIGNS BY HEMINGWAY a potential second home location one day. She teamed up with Charleston wedding photographer ANNE RHETT for this beautiful editorial bridal shoot at the impressive historic SOCIETY HALL. Debbie tells us, "Our soft and romantic bridal session begins in the morning light with a beautiful hand-crafted dressing robe by CLAIRE PETTIBONE that incorporates antique ivory tulle with French re-embroidered lace. A gorgeous CLAIRE PETTIBONE gown, Pearle, was an inspiration in creating our shoot around the beautifully framed architectural windows and crystals chandeliers of the venue. A stunning hand wired gold crown from NOON ON THE MOON and lush pastel floral blooms completed my vision of old world charm.”
From photographer ANNE RHETT; “I grew up in Charleston, so this collaboration has special significance to me, and I am always enamoured with Debbie’s stylistic touches. We've had the most amazing time shooting in both Havana and Paris, and I respect her vision immensely. When she said she wanted to pay a visit to Charleston, I was over the moon! I loved being able to show her around the city I cherish and to show her what I consider its most beautiful corners. It was especially thrilling to photograph in Society Hall, the space where I attended Cotillion (or “dancing school” as we called it) as a young girl. With such a traditional backdrop, we wanted our bride to be poised yet youthful. I loved shooting both the structured, regal CLAIRE PETTIBONE gown and dressing robe in this space!"
