Romantic + Feminine Wedding Inspiration with Plum Pretty Sugar

Sometimes images are so close to your heart that you are just bursting with excitement to share them, and that’s exactly the case with today’s bridal inspiration featuring the exquisite collection from Plum Pretty Sugar! I have long been in love with their feminine and romantic collection of apparel and accessories, with beautiful silhouettes and whisper-soft fabrics in enchanting patterns and garden-inspire palettes. So imagine my pure joy when I was able to travel to Charleston to style this gorgeous shoot with my fellow Aisle Society blogger, Gillian of Coastal Bride featuring Plum Pretty Sugar and captured in the most perfectly romantic way possible by the incredible Kelly Sauer.

Wedding Party in Plum Pretty Sugar

We began the day at the historical Legare Waring House, a classic Charleston venue full of Lowcountry charm. It was the perfect getting-ready suite for our lovely ladies, each donning romantic and ethereal Plum Pretty Sugar robes. Plum Pretty Sugar’s collection evokes a sense of elegance and whimsy, and each of our lovely ladies donned a coordinating print. Wedding Hair by Charlotte and Pamela Lesch Makeup styled the relaxed and romantic hair and makeup perfectly!

After enjoying time together in the getting-ready suite, the maids donned their PPS Couture frocks. PPS Couture is an intoxicating collection of handcrafted gowns from Plum Pretty Sugar featuring flowing, feminine silhouettes in delicate silk and silk chiffon. Special details such as pockets, detachable sleeves, and hand-draping make PPS Couture both alluring and remarkably unique.

    Sophisticated New England Country Club Wedding

    Rebecca and Cory were married on a spectacular August day at the Wentworth By The Sea Country Club in Rye, New Hampshire. The couple selected a pretty, neutral palette of cream, gold, and blush, and after a ceremony along the water, moved inside the nearby reception tent for an evening of celebration with their nearest and dearest. Inspired by the waterside setting, the couple incorporated subtle seaside details into their wedding, including adorable oyster shell place cards with calligraphy by Honey Honey CalligraphyFlower Kiosk created a mix of garland and traditional centerpieces with soft hydrangea and roses, and our favorite detail may just be the romantic swaths of greenery on the bride and groom’s chairs! The I Do Scene made sure that the day was more perfect than Rebecca and Cory could ever hope for, and every detail came together to create a day they will never forget. Enjoy each beautiful image from Rachel Red Photography!

    Brideside brought some amazing gowns to the set, each more perfect than the last. But my favorites were definitely the new Altar Ego gowns from Kelly Faetanini that pair long skirts with chic cocktail dresses, especially since you can mix-and-match colors!
