Y’all, the V5 extravaganza is just beginning! We came back from the Thanksgiving holiday feeling so grateful for the love surrounding us right now. V5 may have launched two weeks ago, but the fun reader photos and contributor feedback has kept coming! We want to give a huge hug and THANK YOU to all y’all!
I told y’all we were just beginning! Monday took us back to springtime in the South with the Love in Bloom shoot.
Virginia proved it’s classic Southern elegance in our Virginia is for Lovers feature from V5.
The Something Old, Something New shoot from V5 was filled with heirloom pieces and thoughtful details.
We love Real Weddings!
Blair + Bryan blew us away with their classic yet glamorous Georgia wedding, full of the family traditions that stole our hearts. See it here.
This news is gooder than grits!
We’re busting out the aprons and getting in the holiday spirit! Join us for our annual Gingerbread Barn Building Competition on Monday.
Shopping around for wedding items? Take a look through the Southern Weddings General Store! It’s full of products that we love from vendors and creatives we trust.
We’ve put all of our downloadable badges in one spot! Vendors can hop on over to our badges page for “Featured on Southern Weddings” badges and everyone can pull our “Love Never Fails” badges for their blog or website!
Tomorrow marks the day that the Clifton Inn begins offering a “Mid-Versary” package for those couples who just can’t wait a full year to celebrate their anniversary — who can, after all? The package includes a relaxing retreat to Clifton with a couples’ cooking class and special dinner by chef Tucker Yoder to toast to 6-months of marriage bliss! Emily’s own minimoon experience there has us convinced that we also need to retreat to Clifton! Check out their site and call in for details.
