Did you guys hear the good news?? If you follow all of us on Twitter, then you probably know by now, but we’re still over-the-moon-ridiculously-happy for Emily + John who got engaged last week! (Sly Emily kept it from us for a week!) There’s never been a better time to look back on all the wonderful features we posted this week and look forward to what’s ahead.
After we spent the weekend celebrating July Fourth, swimming at the lake, eating tons of barbecue and spending time with friends and family, we met you back here on Tuesday with the most adorable bridal shower inspiration. Designer Kristin Cone came up with an afternoon tea party to celebrate the upcoming nuptials and we love how girly and Southern it turned out!
Emily showed off her favorite V3 spread. After all this time, she still has a hard time picking a favorite (we can’t blame her!) but she finally chose our cover story feature, photographed by Joey + Jessica. The gorgeous photos might have caused her eyes to well up, it was so perfect!
We know how much a Southern girl loves her pearls, so we’re giving you the chance to win a bridal set with the luminescent beauties. Fine + Fleurie’s Swarovski pearl necklace and bracelet set are the perfect match to any wedding dress. Go to the original post to enter to win!
It’s seriously pure wedding bliss this week at Southern Weddings. Not only are we celebrating Emily’s engagement, but we want to know all about your family’s love stories of old! I loved looking at Lara’s family’s wedding photos and can’t wait to see some of yours! We’ll be highlighting one special couple every week, so go to the original post to find out how to submit those love stories!
I don’t know if you guys know this, but our Assistant Art Director, Sierra is amazing. She’s responsible for our Real Wedding Galleries and the cute graphics on our site. Sit a spell with her and get to know more about her!
Speaking of Real Wedding Galleries, this week’s featured gallery was Kiley + Tim. They lit up V3 with their fun color palette and great details.
Can’t get enough Real Weddings!
Bonnie + Brent’s Florida wedding was so relaxed and laid back. They really showed us how to appreciate a wedding! For more of the family-spun event, click here and here.
