Southern Weddings

Monthly Archives: October 2010

At this point, the more appropriate question might be, where in the world isn’t SW? Our little Southern Weddings V3 has certainly flown the coop to rave reviews. The result: in the United States, we’ve shipped copies to every state but four and have gone through all but 8 boxes of our original 2,000 pound magazine delivery. Whew!!!

That being said, if you live in Alaska, Idaho, New Mexico, North Dakota, or West Virginia, we’re looking at you! :)

UPDATE! North Dakota has come through in the clutch.

We’ve also sprinkled a little Southern hospitality across the globe! So far, copies have been sent to SW readers in Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Iraq, The Netherlands, New Zealand, and the Republic of Moldova. Bonjour, gutentag, and g’day, all you international readers!

For those of you stateside who are still looking to get your hands on a copy, we finally have a partial store list from our distribution agent! Intern Sierra’s still uploading locations as we speak; click here to see the list (scroll down!). As a reminder, we’ve heard from lots of readers that they snatched the last copy of V3 off the shelf at their local store, so even though our list shows SWs were delivered, there’s no guarantee they haven’t flown off the shelves at a particular location! :) And, of course, you can always purchase a copy on our site at this link.

PHOTO CONTEST REMINDER: The V3 Mega Photo Contest ends in two weeks!! Entries are due November 5, and we want them to be creative! See all the details here, then tweet and email your submission ASAP! Remember, you could win your choice of 1) 10 copies of V3, 2) an ad on the new SW site, 3) an iPod Nano, or 4) a feature on the SW blog!

P.S. We’ve been a little quiet this week because we’re working our tails off on the NEW SW SITE! It launches any day now, so stay tuned. It’s so so so pretty y’all! Email Katharine to get in on the action before the big reveal!

They are a very special bunch and we love them so. These fine folks all have full page advertisements in the new issue. Because we work so, so hard to make sure every advertisement is displayed next to relevant and visually complentary editorial content, we thought we’d show you the full spread for each full-page advertiser so you can see what we mean.

First up: Storkie! See those beautiful teals, pinks, and blues? All perfectly within our color palette for this issue, making us pleased as punch to have the fine folks at Storkie on the inside front cover. Storkie.com is home to a wide array of stationery designs, ranging from the classic to the fun. You can see a few of my favorites here, here, and here!

Next we have photographer Camille Deann. We thought Camille’s elegant and refined style (and elegant and refined ad!) was a perfect match for my etiquette column. Camille is based just outside of Atlanta, but is happy to travel to wherever your wedding might be located. She also wrote a sweet post about her ad on her blog here. :)

Mike Steelman is a great example of the collaborative process we go through with our sponsors. We went back and forth for days, trying to decide on, between our office and Mike’s, the perfect image to set off his brand. We finally settled on this stunning tree, and I have to say, I think it was a great choice — everyone who sees Mike’s ad is wowed. Mike is based in California but is looking forward to booking some Southern weddings!

Next we have J. Malahy Photography. Josh chose to run the same image as he did in V2, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled! Doesn’t it look perfect sandwiched in between the pages of our color story? Josh is based in Memphis and Atlanta but happy to travel to wherever your wedding might take him! You can check out his site here and blog here.

The darker colors of Cunningham Photo Artists’ ad fit right in next to the opening page of our “Sweet Love” feature. Drea and Casey are based in Charlotte but, as they say, “have camera, will travel!” You can visit their site here and their blog here!

We chose to put photographer Christine Tremoulet’s ad across from the opening page of our “Rockabilly Romance” feature for two main reasons: the bright red of the vintage truck in our shoot perfectly complemented the vintage car in Christine’s photograph, and both Christine and our shoot are based in Texas! Christine is a fabulous destination wedding and boudoir photographer, and you can view her work here and here.

Perez Photography is another one of our dynamite Texas sponsors. We love love love husband and wife team Cesar and Tanya and know you will, too. Check out their site here and blog here, and keep your eyes peeled for their big branding overhaul reveal soon!

It’s a very close call, but I have to say, Paul and Mecheal Johnson might win for my personal favorite ad in V3. It’s just so dreamy, and perfectly reflects their soft, love-and-light-filled style. Plus, it looks so fabulous next to the “Choose Your Own Southern Wedding” spread! The Johnsons are based in Florida but have traveled around the country shooting weddings. You can view their site here and blog here!

Kelly Hornberger’s ad is another that’s striking in its simplicity. LOVE the photo she chose, and love her graphic signature in the bright citron. Clean and modern but warm, just like her photography style. You can see more of her work on her site here and blog here!

Rounding out our photography sponsors, we have Tiffany of Lucky Photography. If you’re looking for a true Southern talent, Tiffany’s your girl! She works throughout Alabama and also shoots child and family portraits. (Just thought I’d toss that out there for those readers who’ve stuck around after the wedding!) You can view her site here and blog here.

Last but certainly not least, we have Rae and Wes Leytham. A husband and wife photography duo based in Florida, they might have the honor of being SW’s longest-running supporters. We love them for that, and also because of their fabulous talent behind the lens. View their site here and their blog here! I must add, also, that their ad looks like it was made to follow Kristin and Kincaid’s wedding. Gorgeous!

If you can believe it, we’ve already had a few of our ad slots snapped up for the next issue, even though it isn’t slated to drop until next fall! If you think you’d like to join us now that you’ve seen what care we take in management and placement of our sponsors, just email Katharine and she’ll talk things through with you. We’d love to have you! Once again, a huge “thanks, y’all!” to ALL of our sponsors from the SW ladies!

You know those scenes in movies where people take out a map or pull out a globe and go wherever they happen to point to? I’ve always wanted to do that.Of course, I’m terrified that I would end up in the middle of the Amazon. I’m more of a glam-per than a camper. I don’t think I’d make it in the rainforest.

Regardless, I think maps are so cool. I’m a traveler by nature and you just can’t travel anywhere without a map (even if that map happens to be on my iPhone). Maybe this is why I’m obsessed with Tomato-Made cuff links which are designed from real maps. Three of you, our very special readers, will get to wear their maps on their sleeves. You can wear your hearts on your sleeves too. I don’t mind.

We asked you where you wanted to travel within the South. Congratulations to Mikkayla, who would travel to the Big Easy in New Orleans; Laura, who would go to Wrightsville Beach, NC; and Amanda, who wants to take a trip to Savannah, GA. Enjoy your new Tomato-Made cuff links!

Another great giveaway is coming next week! GET READY!
