In light of the past two years, I’m sure we weren’t the only ones who waited on the edges of our seats to see what magic would come out of Texas for V7! Ryan Ray, Stefanie Miles, and Bows and Arrows teamed up once again to create this beautiful shoot for us, centered around the concept of meaningful moments and true Southern hospitality—two things that may be more cherished at a wedding than anywhere else. We were so overjoyed to have a real couple pose as our bride and groom, as well as the bride’s lovely mama! Given the family-centered nature of this shoot, there was no better way for authentic, sweet moments to happen—and Ryan captured every one beautifully!

The fashion in this shoot couldn’t be more stunning–I love how the lace in the bride’s dress plays off of the lattice in the garden.

As always, Alicia blew us away with her gorgeous florals. This arch is the perfect example of how her work interacts with the environment without distracting from it.

Photographs can be such precious heirlooms. We love the idea of gifting special people, like your parents, with a gorgeous, high quality album of some of your favorite pictures together–don’t forget to leave room for some wedding photos at the end!

There was audible shrieking in the office when we first saw the images of this table–stunning!!

This is one of my favorite details in the issue. I can only imagine how much guests would appreciate the time you put into making such thoughtful introductions!

Oh, how we love a chic getaway dress! This one from BHLDN would make a gorgeous rehearsal dinner option too.

Don’t miss the beautiful film that brings this inspiration to life, courtesy of Candlelight Films!

Holy cow, y’all. Carolyn + Dustin’s reception at the Museum of Fine Arts makes a minimalist design perspective and a restrained color palette look grand. Bright blooms sprouting from tall and short vases stand out elegantly against the all-white tables, chairs, and china. Of course, pink and orange napkins punch up the scene. The newlyweds’ ombre cake topped with a magenta bow, courtesy of Olympia Catering, is a stunner — I may have already saved it to my folder of favorite wedding cakes. Maybe. Dessert is kicked up a notch with a Pinkberry ice cream bar (I die). I can’t forget to mention Carolyn’s adorable reception dress with a big pink bow. It looks stunning in these Tina Bass photos as she and Dustin make their getaway through a row of sparklers.

What was Southern about your wedding? Our wedding represented the elegance of the South, and the sun and heat were typical of July in Florida. Also, country music songs were played for the first dance, father-daughter dance, and cake cutting.
Describe your wedding flowers: My bouquet was a beautiful bundle of garden roses and spray roses with snapdragons, all in shades of pink, orange, and yellow. Half of the tables at the reception had tall, white vases filled with pink gladiolus and hydrangeas. The other tables had three small, white vases with orange flowers, including orchids, snapdragons, and spray roses.
Describe your wedding cake: Our four-tiered wedding cake was a gradient of pink, with the darkest shade at the bottom. A magenta colored bow cascaded down the layers. Silver monograms of our initials, C & D, sat on the bottom tier.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Finding things I loved within budget (which was raised more than once).
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? The venue.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? All of the crying when my dad made his outstanding toast.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Children, eventually. For now, finishing school and beginning our careers.
