In love with a dress / by Liz Banfield

There was so much to adore about this stylish wedding from Tara Guérard but I'm still just utterly in love with this Carolina Herrera ballgown. Large brushstrokes of a branch and blossom motif gives the tulle skirt an individuality that is just so special. We had so much fun taking pictures all over downtown Charleston before the wedding at the French Huegonot Church in the historic district. We later broke away from the reception to take pictures on the hallowed grounds of Drayton Hall

 The bride wore an avant-garde strapless Carolina Herrera gown with layers of tulle that was hand-painted with a branch and blossom motif.  Under the layers she positioned a blue bow that served as her “something blue.” Photo by Liz Banfield #lizbanfield #citywedding #historiccharleston
