Wedding Inspiration- Southern Charm

Styled shoots are a creative way for photographers, stylists, and other wedding pros, to show off their visions and to inspire readers for their own wedding planning.

Today’s styled shoot features a southern styled wedding at magnificent Burlington Plantation in Charles City Virginia, between Richmond and Williamsburg.

Here’s the scoop from photographer Jontell of Jontell Vanessa Photography...

” The original inspiration of our shoot was garden glam. We wanted to showcase how outdoor garden weddings can still have a classy, stylish vibe. However, with summer rain in Virginia, we had to move our shoot indoors.


We reoriented the shoot to be more of a chic ballroom styled shoot. By still keeping all of our feminine garden glam details, we were able to create a romantic, elegant mood for this shoot. The blush and greenery used throughout the shoot beautifully brings all of the details together for a romantic editorial style. We shot at Burlington Plantation in Charles City, Virginia”!


What we love: soft, pink pastels blended artfully with all details, like the crystals and rhinestones,  make this such an elegant affair!

Add pearls, a bow tie, a southern gent and lady, and you have southern charm to the max!
