Southern Weddings

Tag: Grey Likes Weddings

As some of you may know, the Southern Weddings gals moved into a new office back in May. We’re pretty well settled in at this point, but if you can believe it, we still don’t have much on our walls! That’s pretty much a travesty for visual people like us.

Last week we took the step of buying frames, but now we have to decide what goes in them… and that’s where y’all come in! We need to choose just SIX perfect images from all of the past Southern Weddings shoots and features. SIX. Talk about pressure! We’ve narrowed it down to ten, but would love your help to make the final decision. If you would, please weigh in with your top six from the ten images below — or, if you can’t choose, we’ll just take your one favorite :)

No. 1: A perfectly preppy table shot from our V4 Charleston shoot with A Bryan Photo and Calder Clark (see more here!).

No. 2: Mason jars go champagne sophisticated with help from Jose Villa and Lisa Vorce in this V4 shoot (see more here!).
No. 3: Punch for two? Yes, please! Thanks to Summer Watkins and Braedon Flynn for this beautiful image from a V4 shoot!

No. 4: An epic and oh-so-Southern portrait from a real wedding by Tanja Lippert, originally seen in V4. Look for this wedding to hit the blog soon!

No. 5: A favorite bride + bridesmaid shot from one of our V3 photoshoots with Jose Villa.

No. 6: A gorgeous anemone bouquet (by MG Floral) from one of our V4 real weddings, shot by Melissa Schollaert. See more from Natalia + Levi’s wedding here + here!
No. 7: Oh yes, the seersucker wedding gown. You didn’t think we’d get away without mentioning it, did you? Shot by Veil and Bow for a V4 editorial.

No. 8: We snuck in a little more V3 love with this pretty shot of fresh, Southern beauty from the cover editorial. Thank you, Veil and Bow! See more here.
No. 9: A gorgeous ceremony set-up from our V4 Williamsburg shoot with Katie Stoops and Courtney Spencer.

No. 10: Last but not least, this majestic hot air balloon shot by Jose Villa from a V3 editorial.

So what do you think, ladies and gents? Comment below with your top six prettiest, most Southern picks! And good luck to you — I’m guessing it will be a hard decision!!

    I love 3,4,6,7,8. 3 & 4 for how intimate they are – especially how timeless 4 is. 6 is just so classic. 7… well you can’t get much more southern than seersucker! Except maybe if a bow tie was thrown in. And I love the colors using in 8 between the flower and earrings.

    #1 Because: it’s elegant and sophisticated.
    #4 Because: he’s taking her down a country dirt road! how much more romantic could you get?
    #5 Because: who needs shoes anyway? not southern girls!
    #9 Because: it’s a beautiful outdoor wedding in Old Dominion (Virginia IS for lovers, you know)
    #10 Because: the majestic trees in the background unique to our region.

  39. avatar Coretta’s Elegant Events reply

    Number 5! The lovely bridesmaids and bride. Partly because I remember reading that they weren’t professional models and they look so real, partly because every wedding party should look so awesome and lastly because of the FAB triple strand turquoise Stella & Dot necklace on the left maid that I have and love. http://www.stelladot.com/elegantcoretta

Y’all, you are in for a TREAT today. As you ladies + gents know, we usually feature three “Southern by Design” stories in each print edition. We had the first two nailed down (one of which you saw yesterday, and the other which you’ll see soon!), but the third one was stumping us. We knew we wanted to work with Summer from Grey Likes Weddings (because she’s AMAZING, obviously), but nothing was clicking until one word popped into our brains: punch! What could be more Southern and lovely than punch?? Summer and her styling partner in crime Cortnie did such a stupendous job modernizing the idea of a punch reception, and we love the Southern California flare with which they infused the shoot. And Braedon’s images — goodness, y’all! He blew it out of the park!

We hope you enjoy, and be sure to head over to the gallery to see even more images! The full story, of course, is in the print edition.

Make sure to check out Summer’s post on this shoot today, too!
