 We have a certain respect here for Southern weddings.  They're steeped in tradition and those of you looking for some classy and fabulous inspo, here it is. We asked Jessica Drew of  Jessica Drew Photography in South Carolina  where the muses for this shoot originated
Q: Tell us about this editorial! What was the inspiration behind it? Did you have a specific theme, style or color palette?
A: The Thomas House & Garden served as our inspiration. The home is a gorgeous 1906 Victorian on the Historic Register. The floral design served to compliment the original wallpaper in the drawing room and looked amazing together! The theme of Cameo, Lace & Pearls fit perfectly in this historic southern event venue!
 Q: Let's talk wedding decor. How did you decorate your space for the ceremony and the reception? Was any part of the decor DIY?
A: We went with traditional and modern elements, and a soft pallet to compliment the sophistication of the Thomas House and Garden. We wanted to showcase the elegance of the venue by bringing together historical elements like cameos, lace and pearls and mixing them with modern design. Even down to the smallest detail of the cameos as napkin ties, it came together beautifully!
Q: What were the florals like? How did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centerpieces or ceremony backdrop? Did they play an important part in the overall style of your wedding?
A: The florals were spectacular! Our centerpieces were overflowing with roses and hydrangeas, perfectly complemented with crystal and candles. The bouquets featured soft pinks and white roses and the bridal bouquet was a complimentary brooch bouquet. The floral design with a gorgeous contribution to the reception styling.
