Often, inspiration for wedding designs come from just one color, one flower, one dreamy picture, or in this case one gorgeous tufted vintage sofa. That one delightfully charming velvet blue tufted vintage sofa turned into a hand-picked color palette and an inspiration board of timeless images to inspire Southern romance and reflection.

Romantic Southern Bridal Inspiration

This styled shoot tells a story of Southern charm mingled with a modern-day Scarlett O'Hara. A bride dressed in blush with dramatic eyes, red lips, and pinned curls.

The romantic invitation suite invites guests to the faux Southern wedding of Laurel and Everett Bedford¦ Before Laurel meets her charming Everett to say, "I do", she spends her day reflecting on what's in front of her and what she will be leaving behind. She roams the grounds of the stately manor where her wedding will take place. Taking in the breath-taking beauty of the Tudor-style mansion, with its expansive, lush courtyard and dreamy exterior, Laurel finds all the beauty in her wedding day. Pinecroft at Crosley Estate in Cincinnati, Ohio was the backdrop for this romantic styled session. The Tudor-style mansion stands on 18 acres of lush grounds, allowing brides to wander down pathways and through rows of gardens. Her picnic for one is an opportunity for Laurel to think about her handsome Everett and picture their happily ever after.

Each stunning photo tells the story of Laurel and her moments of soul searching before becoming Mrs. Laurel Bedford. Swoon below!
