Behind the Scenes: A Country Cover Girl

This year was a big year for us. We hit our ten year anniversary and have made big efforts to take the magazine and turn it into something even better. We've embarked on two pretty big adventures. Our first comes in January, as we premiere TriadWeddings very first bridal event, Marry Me, a fun date night affair.

And  now we release our second fun new adventure...

Step behind the scenes of our cover shoot video with the gorgeous Katie O'Brien of 107.5 KZL (edited and produced by Silver Feather Studios) to hear all about how YOU can play a role in our next issue!

So did you catch it?

YOU, lovely ones, get to choose our next cover image for the 2015 Spring/Summer issue! Whaaaat? That's just how much we love and trust you. :)

How does this work? Our friends at 107.5kzl will be sharing our top picks for the cover via their Facebook page in the coming weeks. Make sure you're following them so you don't miss them when they are premiered!

We have complete and utter confidence that you will pick the perfect cover image! In the meantime, continue visiting us for advice and inspiration for your perfect Triad wedding. 

xoxo and happy wedding planning!

 

Many thanks to these incredible vendors who made this shoot so fab!

Katie and Ben Tie the Knot!

We have been following along with Katie (of 107.5kzl) as she has shared her upcoming wedding details over past few months, and what a fun journey it has been! We finally saw the coming together of all her fabulous plans and vendors this past weekend as she married her fiance Ben at Summerfield Farms!

Robert Ross of Ross Photography shared a gorgeous sneak peek of her big day on Facebook yesterday, and we absolutely HAVE to share it with you!

The fabulous ladies of TriadWeddings (Susan Marie Cook, Ayesha Oglesby, and Andrea Stephens) had the chance to attend as well, so of course we HAVE to share this fun Instragam image from the night!

 The ladies of TriadWeddings, and co-producers of Marry Me look fabulous for Katie and Ben's Summerfield Farm wedding!

We'll be sharing more fun images from Katie's big day, as well as finally having the chance to premiere her bridal images - which YOU will have a huge role in! Tune in this week to keep up with all the latest news and see more beautiful images from Katie and Ben's Summerfield Farm wedding!

Real Brides, Inspiration, and a Cover Shoot

If you were to ask any of the TriadWeddings crew what inspires them when it comes to the magazine, we would all most definitely say you, gorgeous brides. You. It's your wedding ideas and your bubbling excitement, your DIY projects and your Pinterest boards. All you.

That's exactly why we're particularly excited about the cover shoot for our Spring/Summer 2015 issue. Our model for the cover? The sweet, bubbly, and absolutely hilarious Katie O'Brien, of Jared and Katie in the Morning on 107.5kzl. But she's not just modeling for us, and she's not just one of our favorite local celebs, but she's actually getting married this October to her fiance Ben. She's a bubbly collection of inspiration!

If you listen to her in the morning you've probably been regaled with all the fun details of her big day, from the venue (The Barn at Summerfield Farms) to her photographer (Robert Ross Photography.) Katie of course puts smiles on all our faces since many of the incredibly talented team working together for her and Ben's big day are featured TriadWeddings professionals! As Katie's wedding quickly approaches, all of us are thrilled to see how all the details come together.

But back to the cover shoot! Robert Ross photographed Katie's bridal at Summerfield Farms and it was all sorts of perfect despite some major setbacks (like a HUGE rainstorm that hit hard and quick and obliterated our outdoor location options...). Katie posed in her gown from Southern Bride and rocked a lovely bouquet from Relish Design Company. We were particularly impressed in how she managed to look stunning even while holding a chicken and being surrounded by cows, all things that actually happened.

We aren't able to reveal any images until after the wedding, but we are looking forward to sharing them with all of you soon, especially since for this issue we're not choosing the cover - you are (more details on that to come)! If you want to hear Katie's thoughts on her big shoot, click play on the audio file below for a segment from Jared and Katie in the morning.

Have a happy Friday!
