Happy Birthday, Sierra!

by in In The Office, Main on

This past Saturday was our dearest Assistant Art Director, Sierra’s birthday! This lovely lady is in charge of our blog graphics and Real Wedding Galleries, among many other things. Now that we’ve recovered from our turkey comas, we had to stop and take a moment to tell her how much we love her!

Happy birthday, Sierra!! You are one of the most poised, talented, and thoughtful young ladies I know, and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know you better this year on our epic photoshoot drives. I hope you have the most wonderful birthday, and an amazing year ahead! xoxo Emily

Happy Birthday, Sierra! (!!!!) I am so happy to have gotten to know you this year and seen you grow into such an incredible person! I can’t wait to see what next year holds for you. I wish you a fabulous birthday filled with something sparkly and lots and lots of birthday cake. Love, Marissa

Happy Birthday, Sierra! We are all so lucky to have such an extraordinarily talented and endlessly kind person in our lives. I hope you have an absolutely amazing birthday and I’m wishing you lots of desserts and cowboy boots! Love, Whitney

Big birthday wishes to you, Sierra!! I’m so lucky to have met you two years ago. Who knew we’d end up spending so much time together? You’re incredibly talented, a ton of fun, and always thoughtful. I can’t wait to see what the next year holds for you! Love, Nicole

Feel free to leave Sierra some birthday love in the comments, y’all!

Hi ladies! Ooooo boy, have we got a treat for you! Today is not only the Monday after Thanksgiving, it’s officially the day our 12 Days of Southern Weddings Christmas giveaway series kicks off!

Yep, that’s a mouthful, but with good reason: y’all don’t even KNOW how good these giveaways are going to get! They say it’s better to give than to receive, and in this case, we definitely agree: the SW gals are giddy knowing what’s in store for y’all! Enough of my blabbering, though — let’s get to the goods.

On the first day of Southern Weddings Christmas, we’re giving away a pretty prize pack from Marley Lilly and DK Designs. Marley Lilly is offering up one of their pass-around monogrammed hankies (featured in V4!), and DK Designs, a gorgeous clay gardenia hair flower (featured in V2!).

Win: One lucky lady (or gent!) will win one monogrammed hankie and one gardenia hair flower.

To enter: There are three ways to enter:

1) Leave a comment on this post telling us your married monogram (which, of course, could be the same as your monogram right now!).
2) Follow @iloveswmag on Twitter and leave a SEPARATE comment with your Twitter handle letting us know.
3) Link to this giveaway in your Facebook status! Make sure you tag us so that we can see you did so, and then leave a SEPARATE comment letting us know!

This giveaway will close on Christmas Day, December 25. Best of luck, and check back tomorrow for our next festive giveaway!

Happy Monday, my friends! I hope you all had wonderful weekends full of good fun and even better company. With the turkey and dressing behind us, though, it’s time to move on to the next fabulous season: Christmas! And what better way to kick off December’s festivities than with the Southern Weddings Gingerbread Barn Building event?

A brief recap, since we’re building this week (!): All are invited, and the winner gets a special holiday prize: a $100 gift certificate from our sponsor, Minted! Perfect for holiday cards and save-the-dates, no?

We’re partnering up with our awesome event sponsors, The Carolina Inn, Sugarland Bakery and Hammond’s Candies, to spread the holiday joy (and some friendly competitive spirit). We’ll be building at The Carolina Inn’s Hill Ballroom on this Wednesday at 6:30. Stations will be full of gingerbread, Sugarland’s yummy icing, tons of peppermint from Hammond’s Candies and lots of other sweets! The fabulous Nancy Ray will be on hand to photograph all the festivities, too!

To keep the sugar highs at bay, light snacks and refreshments, courtesy of The Carolina Inn, will be provided. Get your creative caps on and start thinking up your plans, because the Southern Weddings girls will be building, too, and we’re going to be raring to go!

If you’re planning to attend, make sure to RSVP by sending an email to nicole {at} iloveswmag.com with the subject line: Attending with Bells On! See you soon!
