I remember the first time I picked up a copy of Southern Weddings Magazine. Volume 3 had just come out and it graced the shelves of Food Lion. I was brand new to the world of wedding photography at the time, and was amazed by the content of this magazine. I immediately dove into the pages, absorbing every detail. I loved the concept of Southern weddings and the meaning behind them. It was at that point I realized how much I love weddings in the South… and a dream was birthed. I knew that I wanted to one day be published in Southern Weddings Magazine. It was a big dream, but I had faith that it could happen someday.
It is with great excitement and gratitude that my images grace the pages of the fifth anniversary issue of Southern Weddings Magazine. I am beyond thankful for this opportunity! If you pick up a copy of V5, you will see just why I love this magazine so much! The quality is superb, but the heart behind it is what’s truly incredible. The ladies behind this magazine are some of the sweetest, genuine, hard working people you will ever meet!
Southern Weddings Magazine V5 is NOW available in stores! You can find it at your local Target, Wal-mart, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Wal-green’s, Piggly Wiggly, etc.! You can also order directly from the Southern Weddings blog and receive a hand written note from the SW ladies! :)
Below are some photo booth pictures from the Southern Weddings Launch Party! Anna Routh’s the Cheese Booth was such a fun addition to the party! Loved it!
L to R: Stacey Lanning and I (she created the wall for our mason jar feature on pages 48 & 49 – she’s awesome!), myself, Lara Casey and I (founder of Southern Weddings and all around amazing person!), and Nancy Ray and I (incredible wedding photographer in Raleigh… love her!).
