Middleton Place is a stunning property located about 15 miles northwest of downtown Charleston. Its mossy oaks, ponds, landscaped gardens, and wildlife collection make it truly unique as a wedding venue. Although there are many amazing features on the property, one thing that makes Middleton Place exceptionally unique is its stable yard complete with grazing horses and sheep. This scenery takes you straight to the English countryside which is where this wedding inspiration was born.
Planner and wedding designer, Britt Jones, researched old Ralph Lauren ads to find a few images of inspiration that served as a jumping-off point for this equestrian-style wedding. Inspired by the horses, the architecture of the old Middleton home, and mossy tones and textures, each element was crafted from there to bring to life the vision you see today. Soft pinks, subtle reds, browns, and blacks were used throughout the design to bring these ideas out of the ad and into a tangible form that translated to a wedding at Middleton Place.
Our bride featured two dresses for the wedding day, one stunning lace and tulle gown by Marchesa. The other is a sleek bow-back gown by Sarah Seven from Lovely Bride Charleston. A petite bouquet by Colby West Designs and the bride’s tousled-up do serve as the perfect compliments to both of these beautiful gowns.
