Happy Birthday, Emily!

by in In The Office, Main on

It’s hard to surprise the gal who takes care of the Southern Weddings blog like it’s her job – which, admittedly, it is – but what better day to try than on her birthday?

We love Emily to pieces, and we know you all do, as well. Let’s face it: this blog wouldn’t happen without her, and the wedding world would be deprived of some truly lovely wedding inspiration if it weren’t for our favorite Northern transplant. So from all of us to you, Em: happy birthday!

From Marissa: Happy Birthday, Emily! Thank you for always being patient with my two billion questions and for welcoming me into the SW family with open arms. I am so grateful for you. I hope all your birthday wishes come true!

From Whitney: Emily, I consider you the queen of etiquette and one of the most stylish women I know. You have an uncanny ability to do literally anything remotely linked with the wedding world and for that I applaud you! I want you to know that I have always looked up to you and I am positive that you serve as a role model to countless other people as well. I hope your birthday is filled with sweet confections and cute kitties and, of course, happiness!

From Katharine: I treasure so much about our friendship: taking SW by storm right out of college, posing for pictures (often hand-in-hand) and celebrating the ups and downs, just to name a few. Of course, you standing up as a bridesmaid at our wedding tops the list, and I’ll always be grateful for your special role in our big day. I wish you nothing but laughter, hugs and pretty paper. (Plus a healthy love and respect for MTV’s Teen Mom!)

From Lara: If I could create a perfect Emily Birthday Land for you, it would consist of the following: cupcakes, chocolate, kitties, Martha Stewart and all of your family and friends around you. Luckily, I can make 2.2 of those things happen for you today. (cupcakes, chocolate and Katharine). We are all so blessed to have you in our lives. You inspire so many to dream in ribbons, fabrics, flowers, pretty papers and sweet delights. Thank you for always making me want to be my best by just being you – beautiful, brilliant, wise, funny, honest, authentic and driven. Wishing you the happiest birthday!

From Nicole + Sierra: Happy Birthday Emily! You’re a paper guru, wedding genius, and wonderful person to work with! We’re still learning a ton from you and I’m always impressed by the ideas you have, your great eye and your motivation (101 goals in 1001 days, anyone?). I hope this coming year is full of even more wonderful things!

Have birthday wishes of your own for E? Leave her some love, y’all!
