We are so excited to be releasing the Spring 2021 issue of I Do Y’all Magazine! We’ve spent the last few months searching for some of the most inspired Real Weddings, Styled Shoots, Engagements, and more, and this 340 page edition is jam packed with beautiful images and more ideas than we’ve ever published before!
We could not wait to share this gorgeous Styled Shoot gracing the cover. DK Hebert Photography, Threaux Event Coordination & Design and the entire Louisiana vendor team created the most luxurious and romantic design. It took our breath away, and we know you’ll love it too.
As you read through the pages of this issue, you may notice some changes to our design as well as our content. As things started to reopen and couples began to secure wedding pros for their weddings, we realized it was a good time for a refresh, just to shake off the past year with a slight redesign.
We also believed it was time to respond to the needs of all our readers by expanding our magazine content. 2020 was a banner year for us digitally and socially, and 2021 looks to be the same. We’ve watched as couples came to the site, our social pages, and especially our Pinterest page, for ideas and inspiration. That’s why you’ll see weddings, styled shoots, engagements, and more from couples and wedding pros from around the entire U.S. South!
By expanding our magazine format to include all southern states, we now have the opportunity to share even more inspired design with you. Yes, we still have tons of features from the Gulf States region – beautiful design from our wedding vendors and fabulous photography from some of our regional favorites like MbM, Aislinn Kate, Josh Williams, Kayce Stork, Lisa Tilley, & Grace Photography. Now we are super excited to be sharing the work of some of our faves from all around the south as well!
We’ve been big fans of Nikk Nguyen Photo from Austin for so long. Make sure you check out his beautiful engagement session and the Wild at Heart styled wedding shoot in this edition. We’ve also found so many new favorites, like Steph Sorenson, Rudy & Marta, and White Buffalo Weddings. We think you’ll like them too.
We are thrilled to have the ability to share the work of so many amazing planners, florists and designers, and every type of wedding service provider from around the south. We’ve added great ideas for engagement photos, a gorgeous bridal beauty shoot from makeup artist Ashley West that was created during a trip to Paris, and Misty McLendon Photography sent us the cutest bachelorette party you’ve ever seen.
From pre-covid blow-outs to intimate, family gatherings, there are so many steal-able ideas in these weddings. We’ve got the sweetest mountainside micro-wedding from North Carolina, an intimate, alfresco event from Tennessee, and some stunning beachside events from the Alabama and Florida coasts. We have to admit, we are a bit partial to New Orleans and gulf coast weddings, (it’s home after all) but y’all, we have to tell you, the folks in Nashville KNOW how to plan a party! It may just be our new favorite city!
You told us that you want more inspiration, more design, more details, and more Real Weddings, and we are so excited to be able to deliver them to you. Gone are the tips & tricks, the planning pages, and tired articles. You can find those anywhere. From now on, we’ll be delivering nothing less than 300+ pages of incredible design and amazing inspiration from first-class wedding pros four times a year!
