We don’t know too much about this gem of a Southern wedding, but knew we absolutely had to share it with you. (We’re pretty sure you’ll forgive us the lack of details once you see the photos from Joey + Jessica Seawell of Veil and Bow.) Tara, in a sleek pleated gown, wed pink tie-clad Steve at the Daniel Island Club in historic Charleston. The team at Peacock Events planned the simple outdoor ceremony, and Timeless Designs styled bright, island-inspired blooms to accent the venue’s lush green palette. Leave it to Joey + Jessica to capture the sweetest details of the day: coral and aqua beach cruisers – polished and ready for riding! -, raspberry watercolor paper goods courtesy of Wedding Paper Divas and an auspicious flying v over the couple’s intimate vows. Emily and I both agree this last shot is almost too perfect.

Check back for more from the reception soon!

    This bride and her bridesmaids look GORGEOUS–and my heart is absolutely melting over the basset hound <3 I used to have them growing up and I love, love, love them! I think incorporating a pet into a wedding ceremony is so sweet and fun! Can't wait to see Part II!!

    As a wedding photographer and owner of two basset hounds who’ve been used in inspiration shoots, I’m going nuts over this wedding. The hot pink and orange are just exquisite for the camera (and in person). Love it all.

Hi ladies + gents! We knew it would happen sooner or later, but we didn’t know it would happen QUITE this soon. Yes, our stash of V3s (or, the third print edition of Southern Weddings, which debuted in October 2010), is running VERY low. As in, about 100 copies left low. Whoa! We can’t thank y’all enough for the V3 lovin’!

If you haven’t been able to find V3 in a store near you, and you’ve been holding off on ordering your copy straight from our office, now is the time to do it! They’ll be first come-first served until they’re gone. Here’s the link to make your purchase.

Also, we wanted to give you a heads up that our office will be moving down the road in a few weeks, so we’ve decided to close ALL magazine orders for the month of May. On June 1, you’ll once again be able to purchase V2s and any remaining V3s, but the SWPS will be closed for the month of May. So plan accordingly for bridal showers, birthdays, and other events for which a copy of SW would be the perfect present!

Any questions? Leave them below!

    I love the Pale Pink Check Cummerbund Set. It would look amazing with navy bridesmaids dresses and blush peonies.

  2. avatar Marie reply

    About a month ago I was in Athens while a local shop was having a High Cotton sale. I was giddy when I saw the monogrammed cummerbund.

    Being a University of Georgia graduate, I have to go with the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Cummerbund Set. Seersucker and Red!!! How can get any more ‘Southern’ than that? I do have a second favorite for those times when wearing game day colors aren’t suitable: Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Cummerbund Set- It is a PERFECT spring time set.

  3. avatar Stacy reply

    Love the Soft Lavender Mini Check Cummerbund Set

  4. avatar Liz reply

    For me the “Endzone Orange Gingham” cummerbund set is the epitome of the South because I live in Big Orange Country (Knoxville, TN) and SEC football is a way of life here – the endzones at UT are checkerboard orange and white! Go vols!

  5. avatar Mandy reply

    What could be more Southern than an honoring little college football tradition. I love the “Red and Black Tattersall Cummerbund Set” because the colors represent mine and my fiance’s Alma Mater… The University of Georgia! Go Dawgs!

  6. avatar Sarah reply

    I love the Carolina blue stripe set! Is there anything more Southern than a Chapel Hill wedding? No!
    Also, the model is one of my boyfriend’s fraternity brothers- love it!

  7. avatar Katie reply

    I absolutely adore the the Pale Pink Check Cummerbund Set…it could only be more southern with the addition of a monogram! However, I do love Clemson so the End Zone Orange is also near and dear to my heart!

  8. avatar Kelly reply

    Definitely like the Black Houndstooth. Southern and sharp.

  9. avatar Sarah Wright reply

    I think the Soft Carolina Blue Stripe Cummerbund Set represents the South the most – our Carolina Blue skies and the perfect combo of white and blue!

  10. avatar Shea reply

    I think the nautical blue is classic! and of course I love a plaid!

  11. avatar Linden reply

    Could anything be more Southern than a madras Cumberbund set? I love it! It just reminds me of the South- gentlemen who can dress up and still appear laid-back, friendly, and not stuffy. Adore this! It would make for an awesome Charleston wedding… I can just see it!

  12. avatar Erin Butler reply

    I love the Orange and Navy Tattersall Cummerbund Set. It reminds me of Sundress-Saturdays spent in the Fall at Ben Hill Griffin stadium cheering for the Gators :)

  13. avatar jcristg reply

    I can’t pass up the chance to pick the red and black – Carolina – cummerbund set. Go Cocks!

  14. avatar Amanda reply

    Definitely the Crimson Gingham Cummerbund Set. It’s picnic table-like red and white checkers reminds me of summers in Tennessee. I can picture this cummerbund around the waist of my handsome fiance sitting with me on a blanket in the sun, eating a picnic together. It brings me back to the summer sounds of June bugs and the humidity of summer in the south.

  15. avatar Courtney reply

    I love the Crimson gingham set! All of them, especially the seersucker and the gingham patters were very Southern!

  16. avatar Lindsay Weidenhammer reply

    I think the Nautical Navy Stripe Cummerbund Set looks MOST southern charm!

  17. avatar Lori reply

    I love High Cotton Ties. My fiance and I have been looking at their website lately trying to decide on bowties for the beaus in the wedding party! I think the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Cummerbund is the epitome of southern and would be perfect monogrammed!

  18. avatar Clara G reply

    Although I’m tempted to pick the black houndstooth because it is soooo BAMA, I have decided to pick the Soft Carolina Blue Stripe Cummerbund Set. This color blue screams old south. The cummerbund and bow tie make me think of a good ole fashioned southern gentleman. It is classic, romantic, and perfectly soutern!! I love it!

  19. avatar Elyse G. reply

    Nothing is more southern than the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Cummerbund Set. It’s seersucker!

  20. avatar Dayton reply

    I think the Red and Black Tattersall Cummerbund Set truly emphasizes the look of the south. It encompasses the University of Georgia’s colors with the uncanning style of a true southern gentleman that is best epitomized in the great state of Georgia.

  21. avatar Emily reply

    Don’t they all scream “Southern”? But I do love the Aqua Seersucker Gingham!

  22. avatar Amanda reply

    The Aqua seersucker gingham absolutely emphasizes the south the most. Every Easter Sunday as far as I can remember all the men would stroll into church with their blue seersucker suits and I always knew spring was here! Easter picnic after service with fried chicken, fried okra, and seersucker as far as the eye can see.

  23. avatar Linda reply

    I love the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Cummerbund Set. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding! Love High Cotton Ties (and headbands, too!)

  24. avatar Jessica reply

    I love the Carolina Blue Gingham Cummerbund Set! What says southern more than the color of the beautiful blue sky on a spring afternoon in North Carolina in combo with gingham?!?

  25. avatar Kristen Cowan reply

    I love the Carolina blue stripe set! Screams southern gentleman at a college football tailgate! :)

  26. avatar Allison reply

    nothing says Southern like the Endzone Orange cummerbund and tie set. Why? because who else than a Southern gent would sport a cummbebund and tie to a Saturday football game? Go CLEMSON Tigers!! :)

  27. avatar Kelsey reply

    My fiance and I are so excited about this contest! Judy and James are the best! My favorite is the Carolina Blue Gingham. There’s nothing more Southern that a crisp pastel in amazing pattern like gingham. It matches the sky on a beautiful Southern day and starts the night off with your gentleman looking and feeling good. And can it get any better than the monogram on the side?!

  28. avatar Jess reply

    Durham Ranger Madras Bow Tie most def!!! love the colors and its also Miami Dolphins :) So proud to be Southern!

  29. avatar Cris reply

    Definitely the Carolina Blue! All Southerners love a Carolina blue sky!

  30. avatar Haley reply

    Nothing screams South more than the Blue Violet and Pink Paisley Cummerbund Set! It combines the rich history which both the South and paisley print have in common with the fun, contemporary colors of blue and pink!!

  31. avatar heather reply

    I definitely think the Aqua Seersucker Gingham Cummerbund Set is the most southern, plus if we win it, I have the perfect dress to match him! ;)

  32. avatar Lauren Dunaway reply

    Although it has Nantucket in the name I think the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Set is the epitome of southern! Here in New Orleans, people from out of town assume seersucker = southern!

  33. avatar Katherine reply

    I LOVE the Pale Pink Check Cummerbund set! What’s more southern than a man in pink?

  34. avatar Tony reply

    I think that the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Cummerbund Set epitomizes the South. It’s a classic pattern with a modern, striking color. The pattern gives it that nautical feel from the coast, but the faded red tones in the seersucker stripe give it that sun faded, relaxed feel I always love. The washed out red tones arn’t too loud, but it speaks and make the wearer stand out from the rest. Also, pale striped sun faded reds with solid, saturated navy tones? It’s a great color combination!

    It’s a quiet breeze of Southern air that isn’t too overpowering, which is why it’s my choice.

  35. avatar Hannah reply

    I love plaid so how can I not pick the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Print :)

  36. avatar Kate reply

    Durham Ranger Madras is the epitome of the south!

  37. avatar Katie reply

    I LOVE the Endzone Orange. I’m a Clemson girl but that cummerbund just says Southern… it’s the color of Georgia peaches and clay, the color that fills Tennessee, Clemson, Florida, UVA, and Auburn’s stadiums in the fall, a low country sunset sky, and a southerner’s favorite vegetable: macaroni and cheese. And the gingham print just screams comfortable, down home, and real… what every Southern gentleman should be! :)

  38. avatar Brandon reply

    I am a HUGE fan of the Red and Black Tattersall Cummerbund Set. It goes great with a dark tux, but also reminds me and my girlfriend of putting on some red pants, a white oxford, and the bow tie alone at the University of Cincinnati football games. Nothing like bringing up some southern style!

  39. avatar ron payne reply

    On its own, the patchwork madras is my favorite. But with tuxedo, the pink check.

  40. avatar Chris reply

    Even though I’m partial to the UT Endzone Orange, nothing says Southern like the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras. There’s just something about Madras that brings you back to the simpler times.

  41. avatar Daniel Wright reply

    Red and Black, it doesn’t get more southern than Carolina. Goooo Cocks!

  42. avatar Katie reply

    I love the soft Carolina blue stripe set. It just makes me yearn for lazy summer afternoons topped off with a tall glass of lemonade.

  43. avatar Andrew reply

    My favorites are the Carolina Blue Gingham and Cornflower and Mint Green Tattersall Cummerbund sets. If I had to choose one though I think I would have to go with the Carolina Blue Gingham set

  44. avatar Austin reply

    The Carolina Blue Gingham Cummerbund Set takes the cake! I’m a Georgia boy but blue has always been my color. The Carolina Blue is classic and makes a statement of style and purpose while maintaining a quiet dignity.

  45. avatar Andrew reply

    My two favorite are the Carolina Blue Gingham and Cornflower and Mintgreen Tattersall Cummerbund sets but if I had to pick one I would say that the Carolina Blue Gingham represents the south the best.

  46. avatar Bella Michelle reply

    They are wonderful…but I do love that Calhoun Plaid!

  47. avatar Daniel reply

    Love the End Zone orange!

  48. avatar Sarah Gibson reply

    I think the Blue Violet and Pink Paisely set and the Cornflower and Mint Green Tattersall set embody the south the most!

  49. avatar Stevie reply

    The Carolina Blue Gingham and the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Print are quintessentially southern and are just calling for Charleston weddings and juleps in hand! Southern boys in madras can’t be beat!

  50. avatar Grayson Campbell reply

    By far the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras is the most Southern. Add on a monogram and it doesn’t get anymore Southern. It reminds me of the patch madras shorts my father and uncles used to golf in when I was a little girl
