We wanted to take a moment from our oven-preheating, Macy’s-parade-watching, family-hugging mornings to let y’all know one more time how thankful we are for all of you, and how grateful we are that you let us be a small part of your journeys to the altar. We also thought you might like to know what we’re each up to today, and to tell you a few other things we’re thankful for…

Sierra: Today I’m at home, about an hour down the road from the office. My grandparents are visiting from Georgia, and I get to spend time with my wonderful parents and younger brother, as well. First, I’ll be attending my boyfriend’s family Thanksgiving meal just a few streets over, then Mom is cooking a delicious Thanksgiving meal for my family. What can beat eating twice? Over the break, I’m really just relaxing and enjoying the extra company. I’m thankful for family, friends, my job (in particular, the fabulous Southern Wedding gals) and everything else I’ve been blessed with in my life. I don’t know about you, but I’m dying for some turkey and dressing! P.S. My birthday is on Saturday!!

Nicole: This year, my family and I will be traveling up to Williamsburg to spend Thanksgiving with my aunt and her family. This will be my first year celebrating Turkey Day as a vegetarian! It will also be the day of my first 5K, which I’ll (attempt to) run with my sister and her boyfriend. The 5K takes us through Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William and Mary, so it’s sure to be scenic. I’m thankful for the ability to recover with pecan pie, my amazing family and friends who always put a smile on my face, the wonderful and inspiring ladies I work with (Lara, Emily, Marissa, Whitney, Sierra and Emily Ley, y’all are brilliant!), Southern heaven, and the wonderful opportunities that stumble my way. I had no idea how lucky I’d be and I’m grateful for each step of my journey so far!

Marissa: I’ll be spending this Thanksgiving with my handsome husband and my family in Florida. I’m so excited for all my mom’s delicious homemade cooking, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and A Christmas Story all day long in my pajamas! I am thankful for God’s amazing plan, for my incredible husband, my loving mom and sister, for really great in-laws, for a life that is never boring, for Emily Ley + her Bman’s chubby smile, for Lara + sweet baby Grace’s safe arrival, for not only working with, but being able to call Emily, Sierra, Whitney + Nicole my friends, and for HeyTell with Gina, Natalie + Melissa. Oh my gosh, y’all! I could go on and on. I am thankful for SO much this year. I wish each of you, dear readers, happiness, health and love this Thanksgiving!

Whitney: Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Who doesn’t like a day devoted entirely to food and family? I am thankful to have my crazy family right down the road in Raleigh, and I am happy that I get to spend Thanksgiving day surrounded by the people I love. I’m thankful for the talented women here at Southern Weddings. Lara, Emily, Sierra, Nicole and Marissa blow me away every day with their brilliance, their diligence and their passion, and I thank my lucky stars that they are in my life. Finally, I am thankful for my boyfriend, Scott, because he always knows how to make me smile. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! Enjoy that turkey and pie!

Emily: John only has today off from work, so my Mom, Dad, and younger sister traveled to North Carolina to accommodate us. I am most looking forward to eating stuffing, and apple pie with cheddar cheese! I am thankful for so, so many things, including but not limited to: my family, this season of wedding planning I’m in, the incredible freedoms and opportunity we enjoy in this country, Kraft macaroni and cheese, the fact that I’m living my dream, and my cats, who are the cutest cats in the world (two of them, anyway). I am so very blessed.

Lara: Since Lara just had a baby on Tuesday (yay!!!), we’re betting she is feeling particularly thankful for her new baby girl and her whole family right now. I have no doubt she would also say how thankful she is for each of you, so I will say it in her stead :)

Thank you again, dear readers! If you are so moved, tell us what you’re thankful for in the comments!

    I have been vegetarian for 25 years – I’d love to hear more from Nicole about her experience!

  2. avatar Madelynne Miller reply

    I am thankful for so many things this year. My sister and her husband survived the massive tornado that swept through Tuscaloosa on April 27 even though they lost their home and many things. I got engaged to my wonderful fiance! I’ve had the PLEASURE and JOY of planning our wedding in April. I found my first big girl job and I’m living in a big ol’ city with my fiance and taking care of myself and paying my own bills! I graduated from college with TWO degrees. AND I have the most wonderful family and friends a girl could ever want. God is so Good!

  3. avatar Amanda Noel reply

    I am thankful for my family and getting to spend this day with them. I am thankful for everyone back in Virginia taking care of my fiance this holiday while we have to be apart. And like Emily, I am thankful for this season of wedding planning and that next Thanksgiving I’ll be celebrating as a wife!

Y’all! She is HERE (and beautiful!)! It is my absolute pleasure to announce that Grace is HERE! Grace Austin Isaacson was born on 11/22/11 at 10:24am EST, weighing 8lbs 9oz and 21 inches long. Lara, Ari and this beautiful new bundle of joy are doing wonderfully!

In honor of Grace’s birthday, we have a very special surprise from Nancy Ray (who was at the hospital all day capturing these precious first moments with the new parents!) and Inkspot Crow Films that was completed just after this little gal was born…

And just in case you haven’t started balling your face off yet, this will put you over the edge! Be sure you’ve got your hankie before you click play.

Isn’t she a complete doll? Please join me in congratulating Lara and Ari on their sweet bundle of joy! We love y’all and couldn’t be happier for your adorable little family!

SO much love,
Your (favorite) Aunts: Marissa, Emily, Whitney, Sierra and Nicole.

P.S. Leave this adorable little belle some love here, as Lara is on maternity leave until March 2012 to spend time with her new family. Hooray!

V4 Giveaway :: Southern Exits

by in Contests, Main on

I hope y’all enjoyed this morning’s extended look at our Boone Hall getaway shoot! If you loved the pretty details we shared, I’m betting you’ll LOVE today’s giveaway! We have several pieces from the shoot to hand out to lucky readers, so let’s get started!

First up is the gorgeous Peyton clutch from Belles & Crystals. This beauty retails for $160, and is made of sleek hand-swirled silk dupioni blooms. My favorite part about this clutch is the beautiful blue interior.

Our next clutch up for grabs is the Big Bloom Bridal Clutch from Oatmeal Lace Design. This beauty retails for $60 and is made of ivory silk, and it also has a (patterned!) blue and white interior!

Our third clutch of the day is a beautiful pale pink pleated clutch from Davie & Chiyo, also made of silk. This pretty has a white silk interior.

The next lovely is the Southern Vintage Feather accessory from Preston & Olivia! I love this piece, because while I enjoy a good fascinator as much as the next gal, sometimes they can get a little… unwieldy. This one is perfectly sized and perfectly understated.

Finally, we have a set of 20 coral satin ribbon wands from Romancing Juliet up for grabs. These would be perfect for your very own Southern exit! :)

Win: We’ll choose five winners — one for each of our four fabulous Southern Exits prizes.

To enter: There are three ways to enter:

1) Leave a comment on this post telling us which item you’d choose if you won.
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 next Tuesday, November 29. Best of luck!

    I would choose the coral ribbon wands. My colors are grey and coral! I’m getting married at a tennis club on a river and there will be 20 people sitting on the dock where we are having the ceremony with everyone else on the land behind the dock! That would be the perfect walk down as Mr and Mrs Neff!!!!

    I would choose the coral wands for my sister’s upcoming April wedding. This is the exact color of pink she chose for her wedding day (balanced with cantaloupe) and she would be thrilled if I won them for her!
