Styling Away For 417 Bride

For the summer issue of 417 Bride, the Social Graces team styled another amazing photo shoot for the magazine. Alex Crowder, the photographer, shot Aunna Beckemeyer, Stephen Morgan, and Sarah Thomas on location at Big Cedar Lodge in May. The photo shoot was produced by Jessica Kennon Spencer of 417 Magazine. Hair was done by Megan Ogle of Frost Salon and Melanie Gibbs of Karma Salon. The flawless makeup was created by Andie Reynolds of Lavaré Spa & Salon.

The gorgeous wedding dresses for Aunna and Sarah were selected from Ella Weiss Wedding Design, Gracie’s Bridal, and Normans Bridal. The tuxes and other fabrics for Stephen were chosen from Blackwells Men’s Clothing, Ella Weiss Wedding Design, and Town & County.

We selected jewelry and accessories from Maxon’s Diamond MerchantsHarem & Company, Justice Jewelers, Mitchum Jewelers, STAXX, Ella Weiss Wedding Design, Normans Bridal, and Gracie’s Bridal.
