Wedding Ideas Full of Southern Charm from Tec Petaja

Our last feature from the Tec Petaja workshop is classic, simple, and full of southern charm. We just can’t get enough of all of this gorgeous architecture and beautiful gardens that are featured in this post. Imagine searching the grounds of your venue during your wedding to find beautiful nooks like these to take special photos with your love. Charleston is such a beautiful place to host a wedding, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing four different ways you can celebrate with your friends and family in one of the South’s most historic cities.

Black and White Wedding Ideas from Tec Petaja

Black tie weddings are always a classic and timeless place to start your wedding design. Taking a limited color palette, like in this inspiration shoot from the Tec Petaja photography workshop, is a great way to create a blank canvas on which your details can pop. You can keep everything in your design simple by introducing neutral florals or bring in a bit of color through your paper goods and table decor. We love the idea of mixing this traditional wedding idea up by infusing some fresh color and personality!
