One of the most fun parts of making V7 was including things that are not only meaningful to the South and to our mission, but also, to the history of Southern Weddings. Our cover was photographed by Tec Petaja, who appeared on the cover of V1, and our annual team photos were taken by the talented Jodi and Kurt of Jodi Miller Photography, whose wedding graced the pages of V4! Jodi and Kurt joined us on the first day of our team retreat for an afternoon of shooting all over the Triangle, and despite the heat and the mosquitoes, I think it’s easy to see how much fun we had with them!
We were so grateful that the Makeup For Your Day ladies helped us out with our hair and makeup! Our first colorful set of photos was taken in the gardens of Fearrington Village.
Next, we changed into lovely, neutral gowns and headed to Fernrock Farms to take some pictures amongst hundreds of flowers. The owner, Carrie, was so gracious to host us, and she even whipped up a few vibrant bouquets for us to pose with.
Last but not least, we stopped at Maple View Farm to take advantage of the golden hour light in a beautiful field. These are some of our favorite photos from the day! Curious about our fancy dresses? Marissa is wearing “Halo” by Elizabeth Dye from The Sentimentalist, Morgan is in “Goldie” by Sarah Seven, Nicole is in “Practically Perfect” by Sarah Seven, Lara is in “Monique” by Erin Fetherston, Emily is in “Amour” by Sarah Seven, I’m in “Cecilia” by Jenny Yoo from Nordstrom, and Kristin is in “Odette” from BHLDN.
A big SW “thank you” to Jodi and Kurt–we loved working with them on these team photos, and we’re so happy to have them in our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory!
Y’all are beautiful!! These pictures capture you perfectly :)
UM, y’all are all GORGEOUS! Seriously stunning! :)
I love the champagne gold colour, it would look beautiful in a neutral or cream/gold wedding theme. x
