So, was that one Southern photo shoot or what?! You can read the full fashion feature in our digital edition. It was hard to part ways with these beautiful dresses and pretty jewels at the end of the day, so it’s a good thing we have these stunning images included in our beautiful 10th anniversary issue. The cotton is still around. It added a little Southern charm to my living room. I hope you take in all this Southern inspiration and that it inspires your own wedding.Photography by the oh-so-fabulous Nancy Nolan.
