When our friend Katherine launched her Kate McDonald Bridal collection, her hand-painted McLeod gown made major waves–we even used it as a getaway dress in our V8 Fore the Love editorial! While this gown is absolute styled shoot magic, it would take a daring (and fabulous!) bride to choose it for her wedding day. My favorite thing about the Charleston wedding inspiration we’re sharing today is that along with the gown, it includes so many beautiful, hand-painted details that complement it perfectly. If you love the look of this show-stopping dress as much as we do, but had something a little more traditional in mind for your wedding day, take a scroll through these lovely photos by our Blue Ribbon Vendor Sweet Tea Photography–I’m sure you’ll be inspired to find another way to bring the look and feel of the dress into your celebration!
