Caroline and Jacob | Intimate Charleston Elopement at The Warren Room


Romantic wedding portraits in Charleston

In the heart of historic Charleston, amidst the cobblestone streets and charming architecture, Caroline and Jacob’s intimate elopement at The Warren Room unfolded surrounded by their closest family members. Their wedding celebration was a perfect blend of timeless elegance, romantic details, and the undeniable beauty of downtown Charleston.

Caroline, has been living in London for the past few years and chose a stunning Rosa Clara wedding dress from the designer’s London store. The dress, with its soft pink florals, puff sleeves, and flowy organza fabric, was so romantic and unique. The dress perfectly complemented Caroline’s elegant style and fit the timeless, elegant aesthetic of their wedding. 

Wedding Ceremony and Reception

The open-air ceremony at The Warren Room was an emotional affair, with Caroline and Jacob exchanging heartfelt vows, leaving no dry eyes. Following the ceremony, Caroline and Jacob’s celebration continued with cocktails and a candlelit dinner on the balcony of The Warren Room. The intimate setting provided the perfect backdrop for sharing stories, laughter, and creating cherished memories with their loved ones.

The decor at The Warren Room was a testament to Caroline and Jacob’s timeless style. With clean, classic white flowers adorning Caroline’s bridal bouquet and the arrangements that decorated the venue, every detail exudes elegance. The mostly white decor with rustic touches added to the intimate and inviting atmosphere of their celebration.

Timeless Portraits in Downtown Charleston

Capturing timeless, airy portraits in downtown Charleston was important to Caroline and Jacob, and the result was nothing short of stunning. Downtown Charleston has such a rich history with colorful backdrops at every turn, making it the perfect place to capture wedding portraits. With the church steeples, horse carriages trotting about, and everyone congratulating the couple as they walked by, it made for a fun afternoon capturing the newlyweds. Also, I loved how the pink Mills House Hotel went with Caroline’s floral dress! 

Caroline and Jacob’s intimate elopement at The Warren Room in Charleston was a celebration of love, joy, and family.  It was such an honor to capture their dreamy, Charleston wedding day! Congratulations, to the newlyweds!
