Grab a cup of coffee and settle in with us as we share this beautiful styled shoot from Paula Player Photography. Celebrating the hazy, warm red and pink hues of sunset in Charleston, pure southern charm is captured in all of its elegant glory.

With a vintage car, gorgeous flowers and delicious cake, this styled shoot is perfect inspiration for what to do during the often cold and bare winter season. Paula shared with us her thoughts on the shoot.

For this styled shoot, we were craving inspiration centered around our favorite time of the day—golden hour. We love those hazy, warm hues the southern sunlight exudes this time of year. Winter can be a bit barren, so we wanted to use hints of gold, pink, and green within our reception decor. It’s chic, classic and very versatile. The venue speaks to the beauty of Charleston, and we knew it would be the perfect place to capture this inspiration in. The elegant brick home, charming Spanish moss, and serene setting, all perfectly encompass the South. We rented an old vintage car to top off the shoot. It was the perfect accompaniment, and something all couples should consider if they are holding their nuptials in this part of the country. ?Our model was a real bride, whom I recently had the pleasure of photographing a few weeks back. Her wedding dress was divine. The lacy flower top was so refined and made her look like a true southern belle. The exquisite white and champagne-colored wedding cake effortlessly matched the pattern of her gown. We love attention to detail, and thought this would be a charming way to decorate the cake. ?We kept the paper goods fairly neutral, as we didn’t want them to compete with the florals. Within the tablescape, we had an array of delicate flowers, fresh eucalyptus leaves, gold-rimmed china, and vibrant fruits such as pomegranates and blackberries. Everything organically complemented one another. While most places can’t hold an outdoor wedding during the wintertime, this is one of my favorite seasons to shoot in!
