Category: Main

Last week, we asked you, our loyal readers, to show some love for Southern Weddings by spelling out”I Love SW” as creatively as possible.  Judging by your awesome submissions, y’all love SW as much as we do!  Since we can’t possibly pick a winner all on our own, we’re putting the vote to you!

Here’s Emily P’s adorable submission!  We love the balloons and, of course, are huge fans of wide-brimmed floppy hats.

Lauren really got in the wedding mood by spelling out her love for the SW mag and blog atop her gorgeous wedding gown.  (We want to see the rest of that dress!)

The talented Leslee got us all in the Fall spirit with her Halloween-inspired creation.  Candy corn!  Yum!

Staci of Unique Event Design smothered us with hot pink kisses.  Here’s a big SMOOCH from us <3.

Take a look at Caya’s black and white vintage love letter to the SW girls:

A quilter after my grandmother’s heart!  Crafty Smurfette lives up to her name with an orginal hand-sewn SW craft.

Talk about your wedding day spirit.  Victoria-Joanne’s custom-made garters are made with nothing but love for the SW girls.

Kristy took to the great outdoors to show off her September love for SW.  I think we’re in love, too.

And last but certainly not least, Kirsten’s a bride after our own hearts with her scrapbooking genius.  Can’t you just feel the love?

We’re really feeling the love around here today!  Who do you think best showed her love for Southern Weddings?  Emily P., Lauren, Leslee, Staci, Caya, Crafty Smurfette, Victorian-Joanne, Kristy or Kirsten?

To help us pick a winner:  Leave a comment on the blog with your vote!  The submission with the most votes by next Tuesday, October 6  at 12:00 noon will win a $50 i-Tune gift card.

And, brides?  We know you love SW but we really love YOU!   

Kiss kiss,
Lara, Emily, Whitney & Katharine.

One image board really is never enough and I’ve got to thank Megan W.  Photography for giving us so many fabulous images!  I love how Petyon + Nick gave their classic black-and-white wedding a modern, updated look by adding fresh green accent pieces.  The table centerpieces from Posh Petals are clean and understated and that four-tiered black, white and green cake from Classic Cakes is stylishly fun without losing its elegant edge.  Another look at the dramatic back detailing on the bride’s Melissa Sweet gown and I am good to go… for now, at least!

Describe your wedding flowers: I knew I wanted large, ivory and white roses for my bouquet.  For my bridesmaids’ bouquets, I wanted something modern and simple in greens and whites. My only request was that I didn’t want anything traditional or over the top and our florist, Posh Petals, did a fabulous job of interpreting just what I wanted. They did an amazing job and were so fun to work with!
Describe your wedding cake:
   I am a huge fan of wedding cakes in general, but wanted our cake to help pull all the wedding details together!  The cake itself had three different flavors with butter cream frosting.  The green damask design and black ribbon looked great and tied together all of the colors and damask patterns from the invitations, programs, etc.   
Our favorite detail of the wedding was:
 The photo booth we used in place of individual favors!  It was so much fun and everyone loved it!    Everyone got to take six pictures (in black and white or color) and the photo booth attendant then cut off a strip of the pictures for them to glue into an album for us with a personal message.  The guests got to keep the other strip of pictures for themselves!
Funniest moment?
   When it came time to throw by bouquet, I accidentally threw it into a large chandelier!  It came right back down and landed about a foot away from me so I had to throw it again! 
What’s next for you as a couple?
We just moved to California, so we’re working on getting settled, decorating our new place and meeting new people!

Congratulations to Peyton + Nick, and good luck settling into your new life together!

Since it’s supposed to be raining where the SW girls are headed for our upcoming photo shoot, the bright, bold colors of Cami + Tanner’s wedding at the Las Vegas Temple help make my Tuesday a little bit brighter.  Do you love the newlyweds’ adorable orange and white cake from Creations Bakery as much as I do?  And what about the too-good-to-be-true dessert bar from Marvellous Catering?  Hmm hmm amazing!  Let’s all take a moment to marvel at how perfectly the talented folks at Oakstream Photography captured Cami + Tanner’s intimate but oh-so-fun reception in the bride’s family backyard.  Wish us luck in Atlanta and be sure to follow her, me and this pretty girl along the way!

Describe your wedding flowers: Unique, bright and gorgeous!  My flowers were amazing!
Describe your wedding cake:
  Our wedding cake was delicious and simple, but so cute!
Our favorite detail of the wedding was:
  I got so many compliments on my dress!  Who doesn’t like getting compliments, right?
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day?
  Walking out of the temple doors hand-in-hand with my new husband and being congratulated by all our family and friends!
Hardest decision you made in planning?
 Since we already were planning on serving mini- cupcakes, I kept going back and forth on whether or not to have a traditional wedding cake.
What’s next for you as a couple?
We are both finishing out our last semesters of college and working in Utah. We will probably be moving to Vegas for a few years so Tanner can get work experience before beginning his MBA.
What are you looking forward to in the future?
Seeing Tanner everyday and starting our family together.

Congratulations, Camilla + Tanner!  We can’t wait to hear more about your new life together!
