I adore Southern Weddings! We were excited to share and be a part of the Home Town Celebration editorial from their tenth anniversary issue, inspired by Laurel, Mississippi! I was able to help Emily from SW with the planning and design process. A little BTS story, I was born and raised in Laurel, Mississippi.
My whole family is from and lives in Laurel, Mississippi. My grandfather and cousin were two of the models from the shoot along with my mom's childhood best friend and her family. I also asked my best friend from high school mom, dad, and sister to be models as well. It meant so much for them to come out and support us during the shoot and with our small business.

"Isn’t this the most darling lemonade stand you’ve ever seen? Our flower girls and ring bearers were the perfect lemonade hosts, making sure our entire team stayed refreshed all day long." - Southern Weddings
"After arriving in Laurel, Emily and I headed straight to Laurel Mercantile Co. to pick up some of the goodies you see above in the welcome crates, including the darling City Beautiful Pennant you see tucked above!While we ran errands, Lauren Soley of Lovegood Wedding & Event Rentals and her team were unloading and prepping the Rogers-Green House for the shoot. We couldn’t have pulled off our Home Town Celebration editorial without her!"
