Friends! We are so excited to introduce to you the newest member of the Southern Weddings team — Emerson Katherine Kloess!
She joins Grace as baby number two in the SW clan, and we couldn’t be happier. Emmy Kate, as she is known around these parts, made her debut on her own timetable — about five weeks before her due date! While she took all of us by surprise (Marissa and Brandon most of all!) and had a little bit of extra growing to do before she could come home from the hospital, everyone is now doing well. We’re so proud of Marissa, and were not surprised at all when she sent us a photo of Emerson with a gigantic hair bow on her head a few weeks ago… even though it wasn’t technically in line with NICU policies.
Today is actually our dear Marissa’s birthday, so we wanted to take a minute to recognize her as well as her precious daughter. She is a crucial and beloved member of our team, and while we are so happy she’s having a chance to soak up time with her sweet girl, we’re looking forward to having her back with us in March!
We know those first few weeks with a baby can be isolating, so we would LOVE for y’all to leave Marissa and her little gal some Southern Weddings sugar! Prayers, of course, are also appreciated as EKK continues to grow healthy and strong!
