We ended this week on such a wonderful note: a reader meet-up at the beautiful Fearrington Village! We loved enjoying the morning outside, lattes in hand, catching up with old friends and making new ones. We also spent a good bit of time awww-ing over Fearrington’s twin baby goats, and did some location scouting for the shoot we have coming up. We’re so excited to head back to Fearrington next week, armed with tons of beautiful props and accompanied by some of our favorite people (Tec Petaja, Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous, and Kate Bryan, to name just a few!) to make some magic happen for V7. We have another shoot going on in Florida on the same day, so be sure to follow us on Instagram to see what goes on behind the scenes of #MakingSouthernWeddings!
