Meet our 2018 Cover Bride!

On a beautiful Sunday morning in the summer, Dasia Mattox met Le'Bryan Patterson at church. After introducing himself, small talk turned into a half-hour conversation that ended with him asking her out on a date. The rest is history. Le'Bryan proposed during a weekend getaway to Charlotte. The couple spent the day playing games at Dave and Buster's and getting pampered at a spa before dinner. To Dasia's surprise, Le'Bryan had rented out the entire restaurant, inviting their closest friends and family so that he could ask her to marry him in front of all of her loved ones.

Dasia says that she will never forget dancing and laughing with their friends and family. Both she and Le'Bryan come from large families, but they were able to fit 300 people into their venue. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but after the vows were said, "It was amazing to laugh, relax and enjoy our company!" The ceremony and reception embodied classic beauty thanks to their venue. The outdoor occasion was full of coral and gray and accented with willow green and cream. A live band played for both the ceremony and the reception, moving under a large tent to the dance floor. Mason jars full of roses, peonies, carnations and baby's breath dotted the tables and made lovely centerpieces while guests ate Southern staples like baby back ribs, macaroni and cheese and barbecue chicken and drank sweet tea and lemonade. Classic R&B and soul music kept everyone dancing while they finished off with a choice of banana pudding, red velvet, dreamsicle, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry shortcake cupcakes. They were also encouraged to use special Snapchat filters throughout the reception to make it easier for the newlyweds to gather all of their photos and memories later.
