Southern Weddings Weekly Round-Up

Hello dear friends!! All of the SW girls are patiently (but anxiously!) waiting the arrival of Lara’s baby Grace. We’ve tidied up our desks, ate all the rest of the Halloween candy, and gave out lots of hugs in case she comes! So many exciting things are ahead, in our lives and on the blog. We can’t wait to share all of them with you. (You can get a sneak peek in our video update from Wednesday’s staff meeting here.) We’re still riding the V4 high and we have to thank all of you again for your incredibly kind words! We’re sending lots of love your way! Now, let’s take a look back.

Taking a cue from Emily’s Southern Gothic inspiration board, I pulled together some of my favorite and slightly eerie Color Palette Finds for you!

Then, we jumped right into V4 buttery amazingness! This feature from our latest issue shows off our favorite Southern carbohydrate and a few yummy new ideas to make them shine.

Tuesday was ALL about one of Emily’s favorite features, our Paper, Cotton and Flour shoot! We couldn’t wait to share this behind-the-scenes video from Inkspot Crow with y’all.

Then, we jumped right into all the flour-y and fun photos from Joey + Jessica.

And we ended the day with an awesome giveaway! The bouquet featured in the shoot was made from paper, y’all! Go to the original post for the chance to win your own!

Yesterday, we took you behind the scenes of our South Carolina polo shoot and shared fun video from Leigh Webber. Yes, that’s our bride climbing over a fence in a huge white gown!

Then, we shared Bryan Johnson’s gorgeous images from the feature!

Emily’s heading to Engage!11 in the Cayman Islands! If you’re not familiar with the luxury wedding summit, then take a look at Emily’s post here and be on the lookout for live tweets from the event next week!

This week’s featured Real Wedding Gallery is Yeri + Adam! We’re still gaga for their punchy-fun color palette and paper products!

We heart Real Weddings!

Melissa + Matthew’s colorful and intimate wedding was a Southern dream. A homemade pie receiving line? Sign me up. See it all here and here.
