The Southern Bride Magazine Spring 2021 issue has arrived to usher in the bright and romantic spring wedding season, and who better to dazzle its cover than former Miss World Texas Rachel White and “Married at First Sight” star Tristan Thompson? Civic Photos captured the intimate gesture of holding hands, a tender moment between the newlyweds made even sweeter by their contagious smiles.

With its elegant marble framing complementing the bride’s stunning lace gown and the groom’s statement silver loafers, The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown in Houston, Texas, set the scene for an organic glam ceremony that reflected Rachel’s former pageant career and Tristan’s upbringing surrounded by the outdoors.
