{Bride}  Meagan Nicole Winborn
{Groom} William Brett Adams
{Hometowns} Meridian, MS / Brandon, MS
{Wedding Site} The South Warehouse, Jackson, MS
{Reception Site} The South Warehouse, Jackson, MS

{How did the two of you meet?}
We met through a mutual friend, who is one of Brett’s best friends.  Our first actual meeting was at Chili’s… yes, Chili’s. I know, how do you top that?


{What is your proposal story?}
We were visiting a friend in Charlotte, North Carolina.  We decided to extend our vacation by a couple of days and traveled to Charleston, South Carolina. We spent the first night exploring downtown and decided to spend our last day of the trip on Folly Beach.  We ate dinner on Sullivan’s Island.  After dinner, we took a walk down the beach where Brett got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was really sweet and I was completely surprised. 


Seeing as how I diva'd out that morning & insisted we drive around 20 minutes to find a parking spot so that we could eat breakfast at a particular restaurant, where Brett then found a big black hair in his food… I’m just thankful he still asked me to marry him some odd hours later J

{What inspired your wedding and reception locations?}
Knowing that I could have the ceremony and reception in the same place was all it took for me. I also really love that The South is so transformable. Literally, every vision I had of my wedding day fit in perfectly with the venue.


{What inspired your color scheme/theme/flowers?} 
Well there were 2 things I knew for sure: I knew exactly how I wanted the ceremony to look & I knew I wanted my bridesmaids to all have different colored neutral dresses.  From that, everything else just came to life. That is also where I stop taking credit for anything.  I had an awesome wedding planner and an awesome florist; I gave them free reign to do their thing. After all, weddings are their jam. I showed them pictures of things I loved, but I ultimately left it in their hands. Best decision ever.

{How did you pick “the dress?”}
Well, I knew that I wanted a ball gown dress (because come on… when do you ever get to dress up like Cinderella again and get away with it?).  That was really all I knew though. I tried on at least 20 dresses; I know, I had to be the most frustrating bride to deal with. BUT when I walked out of the dressing room in “the dress” I just knew “Yes. This. This is it.”

{What’s your favorite unique accessory? Is there a story behind it?}
I wouldn’t necessarily say accessories are my thing (my credit card bill might disagree with that).  However, I did really love my wedding shoes.  They were bright blue Vince Camuto pumps.

{What was your favorite part of the wedding planning process?}
Honestly, realizing that it wasn’t about the planning was my favorite part of the whole process. At first, I really stressed myself out trying to figure out how I was going to make everything “perfect;” I had Vera Wang taste on a Target budget.

It was in my first wedding planning meeting that I realized I just couldn’t afford to have our wedding on a Saturday. With my head hung, I text Brett saying “I’m good with a Sunday wedding if you are.” He replied: “I’m good with Tuesday”. (I still have that message saved in my phone; it was The Office, Jim/Pam mental picture, for sure).
{Besides the actual wedding, what was your favorite moment of the wedding day?}
Our first look.  I don’t think I’ve ever had a bigger smile on my face.

{What was your favorite surprise detail/moment about your wedding day?}
Brett’s 90 year young grandmother danced down the aisle during the recessional to Little Bitty Pretty One by Thurston Harris.  That’s forever awesome.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Childhood cancer affects a staggering number of families each year.  Approximately 15,780 children will be diagnosed in 2015, and a quarter of those precious little ones will not survive this horrific and confusing disease. September aims to raise funds for research and ground-breaking treatments to better fight childhood cancer.

Many Mississippians know a family battling childhood cancer. Often, it is hard to know how to support, love and pray for these families.   Emily Ruff Witcher, founder of Ruff Draft Papers, has created a beautifully sweet prayer card, stating “For this child I have prayed.”  It is the perfect card to send to a friend or loved one with a sick child.

Emily started her business in 2010 and specializes in custom stationary and beautiful invitations.  She creates "Custom Papers for Pretty Occasions."  Emily says, “I love to take themes for parties and customize the invitation in a way that can’t be found at your every day retail store.  The invitation is the first glimpse people get into an event, so it should always set the stage and be fabulous and fun!”

Emily is a dear friend of a family whose child recently lost a long, brave fight with cancer.  During his treatment, his family inspired her to create the lovely prayer cards.  “I always love getting notes in the mail on pretty stationery and knew that a pretty prayer card would be a small way the family would feel loved by those whose lives they have touched by their faith and strength in the middle of this storm,” says Emily.

We have no doubt Emily's prayer cards will bring tears of joy and gratitude to anyone who receives them.  Thank you, Emily, for sharing your pretty papers! If you are interested in purchasing some of Emily’s sweet cards or custom invitations, please email her at info@ruffdraftpapers.com

Music Garden is Mississippi’s ultimate booking agency for musical entertainment.  If you are in search of a great band for your wedding reception or event, Music Garden will guide you through the process.  They will help you choose the perfect entertainment for your event!  Founder Martin Brasfield says, “We have enjoyed perfecting methods of bringing brides and wedding planners the best entertainment for their receptions and providing as much support as we can throughout the process.”

What a fascinating and fun agency!  We are thrilled to tell you more about Music Garden through Martin’s eyes:

Tell us the history behind Music Garden.  When and why was the company started?
“I had a band management company back in the late 1980's.  In my role as manager, part of my job description was to make sure my artists worked every week.  I constantly had independent bands asking me to book them as well, so I started finding them work.  In 1992, I started the booking agency Music Garden - catering to college fraternities and sororities.  A lot of my party/dance bands became extremely popular with the students, so when they (the students) graduated and got ready to ‘tie the knot,’ they would call me for a reception band.  Through the years, Music Garden has grown into a wedding reception band agency with well over 60% of our business being wedding related."

How does Music Garden choose the exclusive bands on your roster? 
“Through the years, Music Garden's agents have learned what brides and planners want in a reception band.  We are very careful about which bands we bring to our exclusive roster.  Before accepting a band as exclusive, we see a show, meet with the band, consider their entertainment level and professionalism as well as their musical ability and appearance.  Again, we are very selective. So, unfortunately, we often have to turn down bands that want to be on our roster if they don't score high enough in any of those areas. When we do bring in a new band to the roster, we prepare the right marketing material that best represents the band including a professional video (which most people insist on these days while looking for an act for their event).”  

What advantages do clients have booking a band through Music Garden?
"At Music Garden, we can have up to fifty receptions taking place in a week, so we have a lot of experience. We offer the best selection of professional, fun, and talented wedding bands.  Our selection process (described above) narrows down the list, which saves our clients from having to go through that arduous task themselves. We then monitor each performance by sending wedding questionnaires to the customers, following each event, for feedback and any constructive criticism, which is discussed with the band so that each band is constantly improving in every area. This helps ensure that when you book a Music Garden band, you are getting a quality service.”

 Tell us the process for booking a band and working with a Music Garden Agent!
“You can email or call our office with your date, city and band choice, or we can offer some selections for your genre preference that we know are available for your date.  We then send a quote and video link (if you would like to see that) and references are always available upon request if you would like to hear from a previous customer about their experience.  Once you have made your choice, we finalized the booking with a deposit and a contract, locking in that band for your special day. Our agents can get the answers for any questions you may have about what it takes to prepare for a live band at your reception.  Music Garden will be here to remind you about some details the band will need to know as your date approaches and will help in any way to make your band a success.”

Why is a good band such a vital part of a wedding reception or event?
“I am constantly being told that the band was the most important part of the reception.  The reception is the time of celebration when friends and family of the bride and groom are supposed to be having a fun time.  A great band can make the reception a lasting positive memory for the bride, groom and all of the guests.”

We totally agree. “Through the years, Music Garden has been able to build our roster with some of the top bands in the southeast.  We have people from all over the country that reach out to us to book Music Garden bands like Az-IzZ, Musical Fantasy, Compozitionz, Big Night Dynamite, Park Band, Main Attraction, 2nd Coming, Accent, Fountain City Players, Norris Dates and Power Surge, Creativity, Tim Tyler, Fly By Radio, Lucky Town, Blackberry Breeze, Black Jacket, 4 Barrel Funk , and Powerhouse,” says Martin.  “We are so fortunate to have great bands like these.  It definitely makes our jobs easier. ”

Thank you, Martin, for sharing more about your fantastic agency.  For more information on Music Garden, please visit their website here!

Calling all princesses!  Does your little one love playing dress up in beautiful gowns and glittering tiaras?  Is she dreaming of meeting her favorite Disney princess?  We have the perfect excuse to treat your sweet girl to a magical tea party.  Once Upon A Fairytale: A Mother Daughter Princess Tea, will take place in The South Warehouse in downtown Jackson on Sunday, October 18.  The precious event will help raise money for Eagle’s Nest Children’s Home in Guatemala, helping to send its young residents to school! 

Founder Jenny Blount says, “God used adoption to build our family and it has been one of the biggest blessings of my life.” After adopting her child, Jenny felt pulled to help children in countries where adoption is not an option.  Guatemala is not open for adoption, so most of the children at Eagle’s Nest Children’s Home live there until they turn 18.  Jenny says, “A solid education is incredibly valuable in preparing them for adulthood.  The goal of our event is to raise enough money to send every child at Eagle’s Nest to school for an entire year!”

At Once Upon A Fairytale, tiny guests will mingle with six live princesses (including Cinderella!), sip tea and lemonade, and enjoy a delicious three-course afternoon tea menu, provided by Fresh Cut Catering

Prior to the tea, a limited number of spots will be available for little girls to have their hair and makeup done by professionals from Tangles Salon!  A boutique appointment costs an additional $10 per child.

What a memorable experience for young girls and their mothers!  Tea times are at 1:00 p.m. and at 4:00 p.m. and remember, princess costumes are highly encouraged!!

Today celebrates the 90th birthday of a legend.  Riley "B.B." King was born in Mississippi on September 16, 1925.  Though he passed into eternity on May 14 of this year, his Blues and his warm spirit live on.  

David Rahaim of The Iron Horse Grill says, "We remember and honor B.B. King for his altruism, good cheer, wonderful work ethic, and most of all for his music, a wonderful gift we will treasure forever."

Mr. King's Blues continue to inspire musicians and music lovers throughout the world, and the Iron Horse Grill in downtown Jackson has opened an incredible new Mississippi Music Experience, dedicated to our state, the birthplace of America's music.

"Guests will make their way through decades of Mississippi music history while learning more about favorite artists like B.B. King, Jimmy Buffett, Bo Diddly, Robert Johnson, Honeyboy Edwards, Son House, Howlin' Wolf, and Tommy Johnson through informative placards, signed memorabilia, iconic instruments, & classic concert videos," says Rahaim.

The free museum is in the heart of downtown Jackson, and guests will surely be amazed by the extraordinary impact Mississippi has had on the world of music. 

"These exhibits are highlighted by life-size & life-like wax statues of the musicians hand-crafted by award-winning local master doll maker Anne Robin Luckett," says Rahaim.  "The stunning statues include 'The Singing Brakeman' Jimmie Rodgers, Jaimoe seated at his famous drum kit, Pinetop Perkins at his piano, & even an epic interaction between The King of Rock & Roll Elvis Presley and the Sith Lord Darth Vader."

The Iron Horse Grill is an iconic building in Jackson.  Rahaim says, "Once ravaged by time and the elements the 1906 Armour Smokehouse has been rebuilt with appreciation for its historic aesthetic and updated for 21st century sensibilities."  The Iron Horse Grill is a warm and cozy haunt, filled with wood, red brick and leather.  "The original Iron Horse chef, Pierre Pryer, is the heart of the wood-fire kitchen and has a commitment to consistently delicious food.  He still prepares his popular signature dishes just as he did during the restaurant's first incarnation." 

The Iron Horse Grill:  the perfect spot for a drink after work, a delicious meal, and a place to honor Mississippi's talented musicians.  Joseph Simpson adds, "We decided to create the Mississippi Music Experience in the Iron Horse Grill partnering with the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame to tell our State's story and hopefully be a jumping off point for tourism.  Fly into our Capital City, eat great food, listen to great music, learn about the history, and then travel and see it for yourself."

“People always asked me what I wanted to do with my life, and I honestly never really knew.  When I got to college, I decided to major in Chemistry with the idea that I would go to medical school,” reflects Chase Richardson.  “But by my junior year, I realized I did not want to go to medical school.  That same year I received my first DSLR camera for Christmas.”

The camera changed everything.  Taking photos of friends and family and documenting life through his lens quickly became a passion for Chase.  “Social media fueled that fire because everyone always wants something to show when they’ve done something cool.  I started photographing events at school and just carrying my camera around with me.”  Chase began posting his photographs on Facebook, and offers came pouring in.  Chase was asked to shoot head shots, events, and eventually, his first wedding in 2012. 

Chase laughs, “Looking back from where I am now, I realized I had very little clue as to what I was doing!  But one thing I took away from that first wedding was that I really enjoyed photographing something that was real.  The emotions on a wedding day are oftentimes high and all over the place – and are usually completely authentic.  I liked that.”

Chase worked in the Public Relations Department at Mississippi College for two years and shot weddings on the side.  One day, he received an incredible offer.  Robby Followell of Followell Fotography asked Chase if he was interested in becoming an associate photographer with his company. Chase says with awe, “Even today I would say Robby is the best photographer in Mississippi, so naturally I was (probably overly) eager to get the chance to learn from him and be part of his business.”  Chase joined Robby and his wife, Jessica, in June of 2014, and the partnership has been extraordinary.  Chase laughs, “I’m booked for 30 weddings in 2015 and already booking for 2016 as well.  It’s been crazy how quickly things have progressed since joining Robby and Jess!”

Robby says, “Chase is super talented and was, literally, the perfect person to give us the opportunity to grow.”  Business is booming, thanks to the incredibly talented trio behind Followell Fotography.  “Robby and Jess are special people.  Robby has a lot of wisdom about a lot of things extending way beyond the realm of photography, and Jess is one of the kindest, most considerate people you will ever meet,” says Chase.  “They welcomed me in and treated me like I had been a part of the business all along.”

Blue Magnolia Films is embarking on an extraordinary journey throughout Mississippi.  Founded in 2013 by Alison Fast and Chandler Griffin, the documentary film company celebrates small towns, and the people and projects that are powering a new culture of the South. They are traveling the state, sitting down with Mississippians, and beautifully sharing their stories.

“Our logo, the Mississippi magnolia tree, symbolizes the renewal of deeply held values, passed down through generations.  Through storytelling, we create more resilient, connected communities,” says Alison.  She adds, “Our goal is to produce well-crafted stories, celebrate the people in them, and deliver them back to the communities from where they came.” 

Today, we are pleased to share more about Blue Magnolia Films through the eyes of its brilliant founders, Alison and Chandler:

Tell us the history behind Blue Magnolia Films.  What inspired you to start the company?
Alison: “We started Blue Magnolia Films in 2013 after ten years of teaching documentary filmmaking in the Mississippi Delta, in Clarksdale. We have 100 films and photo stories about that community, produced by our students through Barefoot Workshops. We wanted to expand our documentaries to other small towns, and do something special for Mississippi's Bicentennial in 2017. Natalie Irby of Corner To Corner Productions, immediately got on board with this vision, and together we are producing a series of films that will celebrate people who are modeling revitalization from a small town perspective across the state. Our goal is to produce 25 short films that we will tour back through 50 small towns and communities in 2017. These are personal stories of everyday people modeling a new culture of the South. Wherever we highlight challenges, we're also highlighting resilience and creative solutions.”

 

Tell us a little bit about both of your backgrounds!  Are you both from Mississippi?  Do you both have experience in the film industry? 
Alison: “I have lived in Los Angeles for 15 years, and have a history producing documentaries for television. After working at MTV for three years, I directed my first film for NBC/Universal and won a Peabody Award. After meeting Chandler in 2006, we traveled full-time teaching internationally in the Middle East and Africa. We learned a lot about how to adapt media to different contexts, to empower people and their communities. We decided to bring all of that experience back to Mississippi, to tell a story here, about what is working, instead of what is not working. We want to make visible people in small towns who are connecting local assets in new ways, and showing us how to bring life to our communities. That's who we want to celebrate, the people who are rolling up their sleeves, making things happen, taking risks, and bringing their community with them.”

Chandler: “I was born and raised in Jackson, MS.  I went to college in Savannah, GA, where I double majored in film and photography.  I always assumed I’d be a cinematographer making feature length fiction films based in NYC.  In school, my photography was definitely in the realm of fine art using a large format camera and alternative printing processes.  My filmmaking focus was mastering the craft of ‘painting with light’ and shooting on 16mm film.  For the most part, I was that guy who only shot with a 4x5 or 8x10 big wooden photo camera and I only shot with an Arri SRII 16mm film camera.  I definitely felt that ‘real’ craft only came from using those traditional tools.  My senior year, I was the cinematographer for a short film that ended up getting shortlisted for an Oscar nomination... so I figured my path was set.  Two years later, I went to Zimbabwe and that totally shifted my attention to the power and importance of the documentary process.  I don’t think I’ve looked back since.  For the most part, I’ve stayed away from the mainstream ‘film industry’ but I’ve shot for everything from PBS National to the Ford Foundation.”  

Tell us about the subjects of your films!
Alison:  “Whether our subjects are artists, craftspeople, entrepreneurs or community leaders, they are deeply engaged in learning by doing, and leading by example. We focus on people who are catalysts, who show us diverse ways to support economic and cultural revitalization. I've started to call people in our films ‘Yaysayers,’ in stark contrast to ‘Naysayers,’ because they don't take 'No' for an answer. They keep adapting until they get it right! And we admire this quality. There is no formula for revitalization. It looks different in every town. Some of our stories focus on health and wellness and farm-to-table, others on racial reconciliation, arts and culture. The point is, we can all do something where we live, and we learn best from our neighbors, our peers. So, this series of films is meant to expand a circle of support, and working solutions, especially in rural areas.”

 Tell us about the process of creating one of your documentaries - from finding the subject, to filming and editing the piece.  
Alison:  “Finding a subject. We are usually in conversation with someone, talking about this movement of creatives in small towns in Mississippi, and they will say, ‘Have you heard about X?  He/She is related to Y’ and we make the connection. There is a natural intelligence to the stories we tell, and a handful of people in small towns who are key influences. We also consult statewide actors like Mississippi Main Street and Office of Creative Economy and Culture. We are also exploring a research and data based approach. We factor all of this into our decisions, along with other indicators: Is the story adaptable, affordable and accessible to people in small towns?  How does it balance the other stories? There is no ‘right’ answer. We consider ourselves curators of a ‘living narrative’ that is unfolding in front of our eyes.”

What is your favorite thing about filming in Mississippi?
Alison:  “The unpredictable magic of place. Mississippi leads. We listen.” 

Chandler:  “My stock story is that I left Mississippi for college and vowed to never return.  Like most who feel this way, it’s because I didn’t really understand Mississippi.  I had a VERY narrow view of the state and the people.  The documentary process has given me the chance to start to understand where I come from and why I had those feelings of not wanting to be from Mississippi.  When you meet people and really start to listen…  it’s fascinating.  You can’t NOT understand and start to love a place like Mississippi when you have the experience of story.  The camera has become an excuse to listen and learn   ---  Ernest Herndon in his canoe on the Pascagoula River witnessing the beauty of place.  Seeing his paddle dribble dots of water across a mirrored sunset surface and hearing him talk about the sacredness of place and how we should respect and take care of the river. Then filming a racially mixed group in Money, MS a few weeks ago, through the Emmett Till Interpretive Center, stand hand in hand to honor Emmett Till sixty years after his murder.  Watching Johnson Benjamin, a twenty something entrepreneur in Corinth, start a new business of making hand crafted bags that are, well bags, but really they are crafted pieces of art that your grandchildren eventually inherit.  Hearing how his father and grandfather both worked in the garment industry in Hill Country, Mississippi and how he is continuing a legacy of craft.  Last year we filmed a Japanese woman, Reiko Yamada, living in Water Valley who took a broken accordion and used it as a way to interact with the community.  On paper, it seems completely absurd but when you watch the film, it’s absolutely brilliant to witness this outsider become a part of the fabric that holds a community together.  It becomes an emotional process to see the diversity in Mississippi.  We have example after example of those stories and those people and experiences start to shift and change how you see everything.”

How do you think your films can change people's perspective on Mississippi and the South? 
Alison: “A lot of news and documentaries reinforce negative stereotypes about the South. We can ‘flip’ the story by telling a new story, and engaging communities in reclaiming their narrative. Sometimes, our most valuable ‘assets’ are in our backyard, and we just need to learn to see them in new ways.” 

Thank you, Alison and Chandler, for sharing your incredible photos and videos with us.  We cannot wait to view your powerful documentaries in 2017! For more information on Blue Magnolia Films, please visit their Facebook page here.  You can also follow them on Instagram!  @bluemagnoliafilms
