As you may have heard, our dear friends at Southern Wedding Magazine announced that their tenth anniversary will be their last, and they are setting their sites on their sister brand: Cultivate What Matters.

What a JOY it has been collaborating and creating with this team over the last decade. Southern Weddings Magazine began the same year as Nancy Ray Photography, and it has been incredible to partner with them for so many editorial shoots, blog features, and even having our very own Callie’s Real Wedding featured in their pages.

We would be remiss if we didn’t take the time to celebrate this wonderful business and all they have done for us. So often we’ve heard the words, “We heard about you through Southern Weddings!” and we are so grateful. With that in mind, we wanted to recap so many collaborations and photo shoots that have happened through the years with this team we love so dearly!

To the SW Team, congratulations on an incredible decade of work that meant so much to so many businesses, including mine. We are so grateful for your story, and we know that through Cultivate, your story is really just beginning!
