Like the secret garden of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s imagination, the site of this shoot (our V4 cover!) was long hidden away and overgrown from years of neglect. Now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Dunaway Gardens has been more than returned to its former glory: it’s become the host to countless love stories through the couples that choose to say their vows in its hushed gardens.
Before the blanket of kudzu and wines settled in, however, Dunaway Gardens held and important place in Southern Weddings history: Lara’s grandmother was an actress at the storied theatrical training ground (frequented even by Walt Disney!). We are so thrilled to present just the lasted episode in this beautiful place’s long history — the story of Amy and Quincy, our gorgeous cover couple and real life sweethearts.
