I distinctly remember sitting in my car in the parking lot of Home Depot when I opened the email from Emily Thomas. She shared how much the Southern Weddings team enjoyed working with us the previous year on Volume 9 of Southern Weddings Magazine and asked if we would do the honors of partnering with them again to bring their 10th Anniversary Editorial to life in the next issue.
From the very beginning of this project, we were ecstatic about their vision– an intimate, alfresco-style anniversary dinner under cafe lights on a rooftop overlooking the city. The whole team that came together on this Editorial executed the vision flawlessly and we couldn’t be more grateful to have played a part in bringing it to life.
As Southern Weddings turns the page on their story this week with the announcement of Volume 10 being the last, we want to take the chance to wholeheartedly say thank you. Thank you Southern Weddings for your commitment to meaningful marriages. Thank you for the value and love you have brought to the wedding industry for the past ten years. And thank you for joyfully supporting Jake and I in our business and life as we have grown over the years. We love you ladies dearly and we are the proudest we could ever be to have photographed the last editorial on the last pages of the very last issue of Southern Weddings Magazine. You have left a beautiful legacy that runs deep and wide!
