Feature l Southern Bride Magazine

We couldn't be more thrilled to have picked up the latest issue of Southern Bride magazine today to find one of our shoots in print as we flipped through the pages! 

Below, I've spoken a bit about what initially inspired this shoot. It was quite beautiful to watch it all come together—and this is due in large part to the amazing group of vendors listed at the end of this post. We're so excited for this feature and extremely thankful for everyone who worked so hard on it with us!
At 18, I stood at the bottom of the massive marble steps inside the vast Louvre Museum in Paris gazing up at a grand goddess. The first time you experience this work, which stands erect, almost like a guardian over this French fortress of art, it is unforgettable. The Winged Victory of Samothrace is a powerful piece.

The way the smooth soft lines of the sculpture’s tunic fall over the rough stone of the body and float back effortlessly is transcendental. With these contrasting elements of hard and soft, this piece purely defies nature. Or so I once thought.
It is now clearer to me that this work actually defines nature. In the same way running water flows gently over coarse stones, curving and shaping them, this 2nd century B.C. piece was formed with details that are both opposing and edifying.
When you find your someone, the mystery of love seems to work in a similar fashion. Separately, you’re simple elements, each distinct and defined in your own way. Together, you’re a new outrivaling force with a whole greater than the sum of your combined parts—a victory in love.
