Song of the South, Part 1

Photography by Nancy Ray

The Song of the South inspirational photo shoot is a beautiful collaboration of some amazing wedding artists working in harmony to produce the lovely 14-page editorial published in V6 of Southern Weddings Magazine (and how we love this magazine!)  Photographer Nancy Ray seeded the idea for the feature with Southern Weddings editors, and reached out to Cedarwood Weddings and Amber Housley to partner with her in planning and styling the shoot.

We must say Nancy Ray is one of the sweetest, most sincere and talented photographers on the planet. She lives in North Carolina, but has family in the Nashville area, and was able to recruit her adorable nephews and nieces to participate.  Nancy used film as her photography medium, and the images have a soft, romantic texture. There are so many great ones, we decided to do a series of posts to include our favorites. In Song of the South, Part 1, we focus on the good-looking wedding party, fashion and accessories (organized by Opulent Couture, with stellar stores and designers), the gorgeous invitation suite by Hardink Calligraphy (hand-lettered calligraphy signs by Cedarwood designers), and the fun ‘weekend welcome boxes’ put together by Amber using some cool local vendors (credits at the end).  Bouquets, boutonnieres, arrangements and altar flowers (including those we hand-made from sheet music) are all by the Cedarwood Design Team.  Enjoy!
