Anyone who knows me at all knows that Joanna Gaines is my want-to-be best friend and I live and breathe all things Magnolia. Given this, you can imagine the amount of anticipation I felt as I watched the Magnolia-inspired styled shoot unfold at the Rad Photographers Retreat. Rustic elements like the barn board backdrop met the soft, romantic details of flickering candles, rich greenery, a perfectly oversized bouquet, and a stunning Monirose gown. Whimsical calligraphy paired with the unexpected use of bold-colored fruit on the tablescape and made for a fun take on traditional table settings. Scroll below to see how these details came together with the work of some incredible vendors to create some Magnolia magic.

You're nestled up by a fire at your family cabin, lakeside, with only the stars to accompany your sweet conversation over hot cocoa and Blue Moon.
Family, friends, and twinkle lights. Windblown hair. Hiking boots for adventurous photography. Cozy moments for just the two of you.
A dirty hem from dancing and making memories...
and smiles you just can't wipe off your faces.
