Dress by Jesus Peiro from Southern Protocol
Jewelry from Croghan’s Jewel Box

Last week I got to play with some of the most beautiful dresses from Charleston’s leading bridal boutiques. Model Molly O’ Connell was the perfect muse to style in these gorgeous gowns. This first look is by Jesus Peiro, one of the stand out lines from Southern Protocol Bridal.This locally owned boutique carries everything from the traditional bride to the whimsical bride. They stock fan favorites like Carol Hannah, Amsale, Heidi Elnora, Ivy & Aster, Lea-Ann Belter, Matthew Christopher and Romona Keveza.

The structure of this Jesus gown echos bespoke tailoring of the past with an ode to Audrey Hepburn.

This dreamy dress by Legends Romona Keveza is from Maddison Row and is the latest merger with Southern Protocol Bridal.  Yes, they recently got hitched and share the same space with Southern Protocol, which means more variety to suit every bride’s taste. They carry fashion forward brands like Lela Rose and are hosting a Lela Rose trunk show March 14-16 with a Sip & See on March 14th.

Dress by Adrianna Papell from Bella Bridesmaids
Jewelry from Croghan’s Jewel Box


Gone are the days of the dreaded bridesmaid dress.  The dresses and separates that you can find at Bella Bridesmaids are versatile enough where they can be worn at other occasions such as black tie events, galas, and prom.  Bella Bridesmaids carries several brands that are exclusive to their stores and the customization with each dress and color combinations are endless.  How gorgeous is this Adrianna Papell dress? It’ll take you from the wedding aisle to the red carpet without breaking the bank.

We were lucky enough to shoot in the new Bourbon and Bubbles on Upper King Street. The beautiful swank decor is the perfect addition to Charleston and they love hosting bachelorette parties. Who wouldn’t want an instagram worthy setting to capture your night out with the girls?
