Earlier this year, we featured Chris + Tenille's Charleston engagement session, which you probably remember because Tenille stunned in multiple outfits but totally stole our hearts with a dreamy tulle skirt. Well, Tenille is back today for her bridal portraits in what we're sure is every Lowcountry bride's daydream. Tenille rounded up a crew of talented Charleston wedding vendors starting with her photographer, Judy Nunez, for an afternoon that include two of Charleston's most sought after wedding venues - Boone Hall Plantation and Lowndes Grove Plantation. Amazing, right? This time the bombshell mixed it up with red locks pulled into an effortless half up-do by Elysium Salon and a couture gown from Israeli designer Inbal Dror. The gown is the definition of stunning and perfectly fit Tenille's curves. It boasted layers of soft silk, European lace and delicate sequins to finish off the look. The session wrapped up at Boone Hall where Lowcountry Valet & Shuttle Co. put the icing on the cake with a 1938 Plymouth Deluxe. Pure heaven.

ABOUT THE VENUES
Lowndes Grove Plantation sits gracefully on the banks of the Ashley River on the Charleston Peninsula. The dreamy National Historic Landmark offers the perfect Lowcountry experience for couples in search of a venue with an outdoor setting and stunning view. The Main House boasts architecture from the late 1700's with period furnishings, sunlit terraces, an expansive piazza and a grand lawn that is perfect for outdoor ceremonies. The elegant and relaxed setting effortlessly showcases the beauty of the Lowcountry with one-of-a-kind waterfront sunsets.
Boone Hall Plantation is home to the famous Avenue of Oaks that welcomes guests as they enter the grounds with a 3/4 mile trip down a lane of 270 year old magical oak trees cloaked in Spanish moss. On the marsh, you'll find one of the Plantation's most sought after spots, The Cotton Dock, which allows for waterfront ceremonies and rustic receptions with a coastal breeze. The front lawn of the mansion allows you and your guests to relish in the history of one of the most well known Plantation's in the South.
