Our beautiful cover was the collective work of many partners, including Perfect Pair Events, who helped orchestrate the photo shoot from start to finish. The goal was to create a high fashion, clean line and stylized shoot that is reflective of the look that Forsyth Woman Engaged! readers and modern brides are seeking. To that end, the Forsyth Woman Engaged! and Perfect Pair Events teams collaborated with several industry experts to create this gorgeous cover!
First up – we had to choose our bride! Perfect Pair Events had previously worked with newlywed Meredith Naber when they helped organize her classic, romantic wedding in October, 2016. Meredith and her husband, Jeremy, were a dream to work with and they were excited to introduce this gorgeous new bride to Forsyth Woman Engaged!
Knowing that Meredith was going to look stunning in anything we dressed her in, we were thrilled to learn that Nitsa’s Apparel had a Hayley Paige gown, fresh off the runway, available for our cover shoot! This gown clearly lent itself to the sleek, high-end couture look we were hoping for!
We made arrangements for one of our favorite photographers, Kyle Duncan, to lead the shoot. Kyle is an exceptional photographer. He’s laid back with a precise eye for detail, and frankly – he has one of the most fun personalities you can imagine, especially when you need people to be relaxed and look their best in front of the camera! His charisma complemented Meredith’s beauty perfectly!
Aeracura Salon was on hand to handle Meredith’s updo, and the name of the game was elegance! Her romantic hairstyle was an accessory all on its own to that exquisite dress!
Triple J. Manor House, located in Mocksville, was the perfect backdrop for our shoot. This recently renovated property is sure to be the next local favorite for wedding venues!
When it comes to flowers, Dahlias Floral Design & Vintage Decor handled all the arrangements and table settings – from the elegant greenery to the vintage china. The owner, Allison Dahl, was a great sport, taking on this project on February 13th – the day before Valentine’s Day! But, always the expert, she provided stunning arrangements that were flawless!
The beautiful place settings were accented with elegant and stylish menus provided by Nu expression!
And, of course, we once again applaud our friends at Perfect Pair Events! They were there to help coordinate, set up and facilitate. These incredible ladies are masters at wedding planning, as well as social, non-profit and corporate events! It was amazing to work with them on a styled shoot!
We couldn’t be happier with the results of the efforts of such a talented group and hope you all love them as much as we do!
