{Published} Carolina Bride Magazine<br/>October Cover Shoot

I cannot express my gratitude enough to the MANY vendors who styled, created and contributed to this amazing project we shot back in August for the October Carolina Bride edition. This concept of “rustic fabrics with modern aesthetic and chic metallics” by magazine editor, Cristina Wilson, and event planner, extraordinaire, Ivy Robinson was truly breathtaking. We were honored to join them atop Old Edwards Inn at Rockwood Lodge to capture it.

We were thrilled to include 3 of our Old South brides and 1 Old South groom as models for this shoot. Beth and Daryl Pobanz, Kristi Bratton and Katie Stevenson trusted us with their weddings days in 2013 and getting to work with them again on this exciting shoot again was truly a treat. We laughed, sweat, giggled, juggled clothing, accessories, linens, florals, etc. until everything came together for this beautiful spread in the October edition of the magazine.

From the very bottom of my heart, I want to thank all the talented vendors who gave their best efforts on this shoot.  Thank you for giving us your impeccable art to photograph- from food to cakes, tablescapes, florals, stationary, jewelry, etc. And of course, thanks to my right hand girl, Elly Russell for her amazing photographic contributions to the spread. Any day we can shoot side-by-side is a good day in my book 😉

Enjoy a peek at our favorite images and the madness behind-the-scenes to make everything picture perfect! Seeing our studio’s name in print and one of our brides gracing the cover of this prestigious magazine is a true honor. We are chasing down a dream and seeing this cover reminds us everyday to keep on trucking:)
