Y’all, you are in for a TREAT today. As you ladies + gents know, we usually feature three “Southern by Design” stories in each print edition. We had the first two nailed down (one of which you saw yesterday, and the other which you’ll see soon!), but the third one was stumping us. We knew we wanted to work with Summer from Grey Likes Weddings (because she’s AMAZING, obviously), but nothing was clicking until one word popped into our brains: punch! What could be more Southern and lovely than punch?? Summer and her styling partner in crime Cortnie did such a stupendous job modernizing the idea of a punch reception, and we love the Southern California flare with which they infused the shoot. And Braedon’s images — goodness, y’all! He blew it out of the park!
We hope you enjoy, and be sure to head over to the gallery to see even more images! The full story, of course, is in the print edition.
Make sure to check out Summer’s post on this shoot today, too!
