I was so honored to collaborate with the amazing team of gals behind Southern Weddings on an absolutely dreamy editorial shoot in one of my favorite places… Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia!
I designed a custom wine label and coaster for the story’s dream couple based on their quintessentially Virginian romance. Susannah and Gardner fell head-over-heels for each other while attending the College of William and Mary so I just know that they would have crossed (and kissed!) atop the historic Crim Dell Bridge! Legend has it that when two lovers kiss at the tippy-top of the bridge’s arch, they are destined to be together forever. Naturally, I had to incorporate the bridge into their design.
I was also inspired by the beautiful monogram that calligrapher Moya Minns designed for our couple.
Champagne mint juleps – yes, please! The perfect refreshing sip for a Virginia wedding.
Such a treat & an honor to work with all of the talented, creative folks involved! This issue of Southern Weddings is so. jam. packed. with gorgeousness and ideas and amazing things… Seriously, y’all, I don’t say this much but from cover to cover this is definitely one magazine you must pick up. You will be inspired!
