Junko Yoshioka :: The Gown Boutique of Charleston

The truth of the matter is any bride would be insanely lucky to find her wedding gown here. The beveled mirrors, the crystal chandeliers, the petite fours on silver tray - it all lends itself to a bridal experience like no other. Last Saturday afternoon I had the great honor of joining the ladies of the Gown Boutique of Charleston as they hosted a trunk show for New York designer Junko Yoshioka. If you haven't had the chance to experience a trunk show before, they are a fantastic opportunity for brides to view {and try} gowns not normally available at their dress boutique. While I won't be showing you any of the gorgeous women I was able to photograph {I'm fairly certain publishing a bride in her dress prior to the wedding day is worse than a black cat, broken mirror and umbrella opened indoor combined}, I don't think you'll be too disappointed by the pictures you are able to see.

This boutique is my idea of eye candy - on crack, and I couldn't have been more thrilled to photograph it. Put me in a room with fresh floral arrangements, peach bellinies, and enough silk taffeta to wrap around the world twice and you can rest assured I'll be entertained for hours.

And on that note, it's my pleasure to introduce you to the Gown Boutique of Charleston...

I cannot say enough about how absolutely stunning Junko's gowns are. So beautiful in fact that I caught myself wondering {on multiple occasions} how I could possibly get away with trying a few on.

And one last shot of the fabulous boutique.

Terri, Krista, and Christina, thank you a hundred times over for inviting me to be part of this special trunk show. It was such a pleasure spending my day capturing your beautiful space and watching as you dressed so many gorgeous girls in stunning gowns. A Charleston Gown Boutique bride is a very, very lucky bride indeed!

Wishing you a wonderful afternoon,
