I don’t know if you all have learned this about me but I am all about bridal fashion! And these Kate McDonald Bridal maids dresses are right up my alley. I am thrilled to share their newest collection with you all today through these gorgeous pictures captured by Perry Vaile Photography at the fabulous Middleton Place here in Charleston, South Carolina. If you are still in search of  unique bridesmaid dresses where your girls can pick their own style, then look no further than Kate McDonald.I have fallen in love with their pastel color scheme with the pops of jewel tones. They would be perfect for any Charleston wedding of mine….(hint, hint Sage brides!)

Happy Planning, y’all!


Searching for the perfect wedding dress or just adore looking at pretty wedding gowns like me?! Then Kate McDonald’s new collection is the one for you. The girls over at Kate McDonald Bridal and LulaKate sent over their newest editorial pictures to me last week and I have not stopped staring at them since. Join me in the ogling over delicate details, flowy skirts and gorgeous portraits by this fabulous, world renowned photographer, Corbin Gurkin!


Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to one of Charleston’s most recent wedding vendor additions! Emily Kotarski moved down here from NYC to follow her dreams of creating semi-custom wedding gowns and let me tell you, they are incredible. With her adorable little shop right on King Street, you will definitely want to pop by to meet with her and to catch a glimpse of her beautiful creations. I know you did not come here to read what I had to say, so, with great pleasure, I introduce you to Emily!


Today, I wanted to say thank you for reading my little blog, The Petal Report. I am so glad that you are here! Because without you, none of this would be possible. For today’s post, I wanted to share some of the designs from my table settings I created for Hand Made Events when I worked on their PopUp Dinners. Incorporating a sign at every place setting saying “glad you’re here” made all of our guests feel welcomed and invited. (Want to learn about my experiences while in California and the many events I helped create?! Check out that post here!)

As always, y’all, thank you for reading The Petal Report! Enjoy these fun and creative shots from Sorella Muse Photography.
