There’s something very romantic about the South, isn’t there? The thick heat of summer’s haze, the generous shade of a gracious old oak… this place was just made for love. And sometimes, wedding inspiration is just made to be beautiful. We appreciate beauty for beauty’s sake, after all. Thanks to Leslie Hollingsworth and Ginny Au for sending over such sigh-worthy eye candy!

Pink peony perfection.

This gorgeous dress and veil are from the White Dresses Boutique in Huntsville, AL.

Just like Tuesday was all about our Paper, Cotton, and Flour feature, today is all about our fabulous Charleston polo shoot! Before we reveal the final images, photographer Leigh Webber is here to give you a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of a print feature on a hot and sticky August day!

How about the SUV corral? There’s a reason wedding vendors (and editors) drive big cars — we have a lot of stuff to haul around!

We had a much bigger crew than usual at this shoot, which meant lots of consultations amongst different groups. Which kind of translates to lots of standing around in photos, but I promise, we were working hard!

Meanwhile, Barry from Blossoms Events, our florist for the day, was hard at work pulling together gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces.

In another corner of the polo field, Emilie Dulles, Nicole, and a few other helpers were prepping the escort card display.

A selection of sparkling flatware and glassware was lined up and waiting. We typically bring more than we can use in order to have options!

When the table was finally ready to set, we had one highly unusual step: dirtying the polo balls. Yes, Caitlin, Calder’s intrepid assistant, actually spit on our polo balls then rolled them in the mud to give them an authentic layer of dirt and dust. All in a day’s work, folks!

With all the pretties prepped and ready, it was time to begin shooting! Yes, these were two of the actual cameras Bryan was using:

Pretty neat, huh? Here’s the man himself in action:

Meanwhile, inside the house, our professional model (the bride for the day) as well as two lovely Southern Weddings readers were getting prepped by Pamela Lesch and Tanesha Dupree.

Once the gals were beautified, we headed out to the field to shoot!

Everything was going great until we had to climb over a fence… and one of us was in a ball gown. Our model handled it like a champ, though! Still, these might be my favorite behind-the-scenes images :)

A half an hour or so later, and we were ready to call it quits! Here’s a small portion of our shoot crew, and the SW ladies on the bottom.

A HUGE thank you to Leigh Webber for coming out and taking these amazing behind-the-scenes images!! Be sure to check back soon for the full feature. In the meantime, check out this fun BTS video, also put together by Leigh!

    These bridesmaid’s outfits are probably the cutest ones I have EVER seen. I was so sad that I didn’t discover that back in March when we picked out what my girls are wearing!
