We have always believed that the most precious wedding details are the ones that are passed down through generations–loving reminders of those who came before us, and the love stories that formed our family trees. Sometimes, though, what a family passes down isn’t a “thing”–it’s a recipe, a saying, or a pearl of wisdom, and those treasures are just as important and significant. These ideas inspired our Family Treasures shoot in Florida, photographed by Jessica Lorren and styled by Sarah Tucker Events. Be sure to pick up a copy of V7 to see more!

I’m not usually one for beaded gowns, but I love the delicate sparkle of this Hayley Paige design! It paired perfectly with custom bridesmaid tops by Camilyn Beth and the most delicate tulle skirts from Alexandra Grecco.

This silhouette gallery by Jenny Lee Fowler is the loveliest tribute to an artform that has been around since the early 18th century. Have silhouettes created for your family members or bridal party to introduce these special people to your guests!

A hand-painted table runner tied all of these lovely pastel details together, and didn’t compete with the mostly-white centerpieces. Mismatched vintage china in our color palette from Dishie Rentals completed the look!

We’re delighted that a real couple, newlyweds themselves, posed as our bride and groom! Their seaside portraits couldn’t be sweeter.

    Just got my copy of the magazine in the mail and really wish the images from this editorial had received more page-space in the physical mag, instead of the shopping suggestions. I purchased it specifically in hopes of getting large-scale shots of the featured gown!

When we started brainstorming people to reach out to for marriage advice in V6, Sarah Tucker was one of the first names that popped into my head. Sarah is the stylish gal behind Sarah Tucker Events and Sarah Tucker Styles, and I am constantly inspired by the way she talks about her husband and their marriage. They are best friends, and even after four years of marriage, they are still completely smitten with one another. We are so happy to share her sweet advice with y’all!

Jessica Lorren

I always tell people, “I got the best one! How did I do that?” And it is no joke–I really did. One of the best pieces of advice I can give someone about marriage is to tell anyone who will listen to you just how great your spouse is. It’s great when they are in earshot, but it’s really special when they overhear you raving about them. I could write novels about the kindness my husband has shown me, but since I don’t, I make sure everyone knows just how great he is all the time. Including him! If you meet me in person, I can guarantee you’ll hear “I hit the jackpot!” or”I’ve got a big crush on that husband of mine.” I have no fear of mush, and you will never hear me speak ill of my husband.

I was five when I first met my husband, and he was seven. We watched each other grow up; he watched my chicken legs get longer and I watched him become so handsome, my knees would get wobbly. We were “just friends” for twenty years, even though our dates and friends always suspected we had feelings for each other. He became one of my closest confidants and the person I’d always run to for advice. My point is, we were friends before we were anything else, and that has been huge for us. It was an incredible foundation to build our relationship on. He’s still my best friend. I don’t just love him–I really like him too.

Be ready and willing to sacrifice. Don’t keep score in marriage. Never hold a grudge–seriously, never. Get over it.

If you have an argument, make sure you are not just hungry or tired–or worse, both!

Take daily walks together.

For heaven’s sake, talk about your finances! Set financial goals as a couple. Lay it all out there. It may be uncomfortable to talk about at first, but it will give you so much peace!

To simplify most of what I’ve learned about marriage in the last three years, make decisions together. Even the small ones. The two of you must make decisions together, as it affects the whole. You are one now.

Our amazingly-talented Blue Ribbon Vendors are cropping up faster than spring blooms! We love to hear when y’all are able to work together, so if you’ve hired any of these fine folk, be sure to let us know in the comments!

At JoPhoto, the experience you have taking your photos — fun and natural — is the same as the aesthetic of your final images — fun and natural. They are based in Knoxville, TN.

To me, Merari Photography means crisp, colorful images filled with gorgeous light — but that don’t take themselves too seriously. She is based in Miami, Florida.

The ladies of Morgan Gallo Events have a flexible style that allows them to create weddings that are unique celebrations of their couples’ individual love stories and styles. They are based in Savannah.

Having met Valerie of Sapphire Events in person, I can attest that New Orleans brides are lucky to have her! With a background in law, she would be a calm, thoughtful partner throughout the wedding planning process.

Sarah, of Sarah Tucker Events, is the sweetest gal, and that quality seeps into her work, too — sweet, personal affairs that reflect her couples. She is based in Bradenton, Florida.

Susan Graham and her clients have a classic style marked by grace and hospitality and grace — perfect for Southern brides. Susan Graham Events is located in Atlanta.

Sweet Tea Photography incorporates elements of fine art, editorial, and journalistic techniques while capturing the excitement of a couple on their wedding day. She is based in Washington, DC.

Watson Studios describes their style as “beautiful, spirited, and candid,” and I couldn’t agree more! They are based in Knoxville, TN.

Vinewood Plantation, in Newnan, GA, truly seems like the best of both worlds — a historic property with heritage and Southern charm, but one that’s been renovated to accommodate modern amenities and conveniences. Win-win!
