Our Monthly Real Wedding Round-Ups are always one of my favorites to put together and write. Taking a look back on October and November’s weddings with Sierra and Whitney was so much fun. We love so many things about each of the weddings we post, and rediscovering the highlights from them makes our hearts happy and our Pinterest boards fill up. Without further ado, let’s take a look!
FAVORITE WEDDING DRESS: With a dreamy fabric, sweet straps and a bow in the back, Whitney couldn’t resist Marilisa’s dress. Suzanne’s lacy white gown with a creamy sash took Sierra’s vote, while I couldn’t help but add Ashley’s rosette and bow-backed dress to my list of highlights.
FAVORITE BRIDESMAID DRESS: Of course, we had to give major kudos to the lovely ladies who stood by our brides’ sides on their big day. The neutral-hued and mix-and-match dresses that Ashley’s ‘maids sported caught my eye. Caroline’s pink and green bridesmaids’ dresses were a favorite of Sierra’s and it was the bright coral frocks from Suzanne’s wedding that won Whitney over.
FAVORITE FEMALE ACCESSORY: Being the classic Southern gal that she is, Whitney was smitten with Ashley’s accessories. Pearls and hankies? We couldn’t love them more! I, personally, loved the pink wildflower hair wreaths from Stephanie + Erik’s wedding. Sierra couldn’t choose just one — both the sparkly flats and the adorable flower girl headbands from Melissa + Matthew’s wedding stole her heart.
FAVORITE MENSWEAR: I love seeing how our dapper Southern gents dress on the big day! Melissa + Matthew’s family won me over. The plaid beret, snazzy blazer and fun pennants? Who couldn’t love that? Sierra had to give a big kudos to the gentlemen in Marilisa + Taylor’s wedding. They rocked the blue gingham and yellow boutonnieres, effectively stealing our hearts. But it was the velvet-wrapped boutonnieres from Stephanie + Erik’s wedding that took the cake for Whitney.
FAVORITE DETAIL: I’m sure it was Sierra’s design-savvy that made Caroline + Tyler’s letterpressed invitations shoot to the top of her highlights. For Whitney, it was the custom embroidery on the ties at Melissa + Matthew’s wedding that made the cut. Embroidery stole my heart, too, with Jamie + Dan’s his and hers chair covers.
FAVORITE BOUQUET: Caroline’s lush bouquet with unexpected snow on the mountain was a favorite of Sierra’s. Whitney was a big fan of Suzanne’s classic white bouquet. I loved the simple green and white arrangements carried by Ashley’s bridesmaids.
FAVORITE SWEET: The Southern Weddings gals have a collectively large sweet tooth, so pulling the highlights under this category always comes with laughs (and cravings). For Whitney, the hummingbird cake and sweet favors from Jamie + Dan’s wedding won out. Sierra couldn’t help but love Caroline + Tyler’s swiss-dotted and peony-topped cake. Always the pie-fan, I was smitten with the welcoming pie bar at Melissa + Matthew’s wedding.
FAVORITE PHOTO: Southern and sweet, Marilisa + Taylor’s photo by the hay bale was one of Sierra’s favorites. For Whitney, love won out in two weddings. The sweet kisses shared by Suzanne + Keith and Stephanie + Erik made her heart melt. I couldn’t help but fall for the joy and happiness that came with Jamie + Dan’s sparkler send-off.
