I know I know!!! WHAT????????????? Let's backtrack a little! Last fall my friend, Sibi, from Pearls and Grace, contacted me about a photo shoot that involved grandparents. Long story short, they picked me and poppy! WHAT?????????????????????? Ok, clearly we aren't model material, but we ARE grandparents so this tugged at

Yall, I knew about Southern Weddings Magazine before the photo shoot....I had drooled over page after page of Volume 5! (This was Vol. VI that I was in). But I had no idea what went on behind the scenes! Lara Casey is the editor of this magazine and she is the kind of person that makes a Nonny feel like a model. She clearly loves what she does and has an amazing group of ladies on her team! (They have now partnered with Southern Living Magazine and will have an insert each month of weddings from their SW Magazine!)
Ok Ok............... here are the pictures. I had so much fun and a friend gave me the idea to buy a copy of the magazine for each of my grandgirls. I will save it for them and give to each of them when they get engaged. They can see how fashions and ideas have changed...or, how they have come full circle!
(These pics were taken with my iphone of the magazine pages.
Clearly they do not do the photos justice! The amazing photographer was KT Merry!)
So, there you have it. My magazine debut! It was so fun and I learned a lot about how hard these ladies work! (Lara gives our Lord Jesus credit for the blessing of this magazine!) Southern Weddings comes out one time a year...in the fall. It stays on the newstands until March. However, if you can't find it locally, you can order a copy from Southern Weddings website!
Thanks Lara Casey and your team for making this Nonny feel like a model for a day!
