Watch Our New Featured Inspirational Film for Southern Bride Magazine! We had a blast shooting this beautiful film on location in South Carolina on Pawleys Island between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. We also shot the new cover for the January 2015 edition of the magazine, and we have a full feature bridal fashion spread that we are so excited to see in the magazine! The soundtrack is from one of our favorite artists, Holley Mayer from Nashville licensed through The Music Bed. Congratulations to Holley for snagging the branding song for IKEA! That's a big deal!
