If y'all have read my blog for a while, you know that I interned at Southern Weddings Magazine the last semester of my senior year. I had such a great experience working with them, and am still such a cheerleader of the ladies, the magazine, their heart, and their mission.
So, that is why I am so happy to finally have my hands on my copy of their newest print issue, V6! I know how much hard work the SW ladies put into this magazine, and it is amazing to see their love for celebrating love and family come to life in the pages of this magazine.
I also had the pleasure of assisting in styling and producing the very first editorial shoot SW planned for V6, the Berry Bliss shoot! It was shot in a strawberry field near Lara's house that was brimming with bright red clover.
Everything about this shoot was so preppy and cheerful, from the striped red and white LuLa Kate bridesmaids dresses to the fun scarf tied around the bride's bouquet to the simply delicious sweets bar full of pies, pastries, and cakes to the darling little boy and puppy, both donning bow ties.
It all came together even better than I imagined. Fun behind the scenes fact- it was actually drizzling off and on all day that day, and Emily and I had to wait in the car for about a half an hour during the middle of set-up, making sure to cover everything that couldn't get wet. But can you tell from these photos? Not one bit! That Katie Stoops sure is talented at capturing the perfect image.
And here's something really cool- a picture of me in the magazine! Look mom, I'm famous! Apologies for the gritty iPhone picture, but it is a little thumbnail of Emily and I styling some of the paper products in Lara's dining room before we went to the fields for the shoot. Pretty darn cool if I say so myself.
In honor to celebrate in the best way we know, Amber Housley and I are hosting a Southern Weddings V6 Satellite Launch Party tomorrow night at StudioWed Nashville! There will be lots of Southern snacks and sweets (including biscuits and sweet tea of course), a fun photo booth, and wedding industry members and loyal SW readers gathering around to share our favorite parts of V6.
If you want to join, make sure to RSVP on our Eventbrite page today! It's sure to be a good time, and seats are filling up fast. We are so excited to see all of you there!
