Happy Saturday, belles! We’ve spent the past week busy as bees wrapping up details for our two upcoming V7 shoots, and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come. Working with passionate vendors, sweet readers, and inspiring businesses fires us up, and other than when the finished magazine reaches y’all in November, I think it’s safe to say that summer is the most fun part of our year! Don’t forget to follow along our #MakingSouthernWeddings hashtag on Instagram to see lots of sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes looks at what it’s like to put together our new issue.
In case you missed it…

We’re delighted to introduce one of our new Blue Ribbon Vendors, Jessica Bordner Photography! Jessica’s tag line, cinematic photography with Southern charm, is right up our alley, and much like all of us on the SW team, she’s quick to admit that she’s a romantic at heart. We are so excited that Jessica is generously offering an amazing special to Southern Weddings readers: for the first destination wedding booked (200+ miles from South Florida), she’s offering 50% off of her wedding collection! We know y’all will love her sweet personality and beautiful work as much as we do, so if you’re looking for a wedding photographer, don’t hesitate to email her at [email protected] with all the details of your big day to enter!
We love hearing about our vendor friends giving back to the community and the world in amazing ways. This styled shoot was put together by Love Gives Way, a network of wedding vendors committed to donating a portion of their proceeds to organizations that fight sex trafficking. Please check them out to learn more about this important cause!
Have a great weekend!
