Google+ Spotted in Stores :: V4! (Plus the Design*Sponge Book Signing) - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Hey, y’all! Just a quick little post to share our excitement over seeing V4 in stores with our very own eyes!

Nicole and Sierra were the first to spot it, at the Barnes & Noble at The Streets at Southpoint in Durham, NC. Funny story: a B&N clerk actually came over and asked them to stop taking photos of the cover! They were all like, “Yeah, we MADE this magazine!”

N + S weren’t actually in Durham to stalk copies of V4, though. They were on their way to Anthropologie, to attend the book signing for Grace Bonney’s new Design*Sponge book! They even snagged a photo with Grace herself:

Fun fun! And want to know something even more fun? In the spirit of celebration for ALL new publications, we have one signed copy of the D*S book to give away! Just leave a comment below letting us know where you snagged your V4 — through the SWPS? At a bookstore? At your neighborhood Piggly Wiggly? :)

    I pre- ordered mine! I have been dying for the new Design Sponge book. Crossing my fingers.

    I snagged my copy of V4 from your very own SWPS! I’m so glad I did too, I got it early enough to enjoy it the whole weekend too! The Design Sponge book would be so helpful, I’m a budding designer myself!!

    This is too much fun! I love the photo with Grace! My copies of V4 arrived in Maine on Monday courtesy of the SWPS! Thank you, thank you!

    I pre-ordered but happened to find a copy in Books-a-million a day before mine came in! When I went to the counter to check out the following conversation took place:
    “Oh let me see your engagement ring!”
    “Actually I’ve been married for two years but I’m a photographer and one of my pictures is in here!”
    “Wait, what?!”
    It was awesome! I still haven’t made it through all of the amazing pages, I love V4!

    I just picked up my copy at the Barnes and Noble in New Hope Commons in Durham! I wish I could’ve picked it up from the Southpoint location so I could have seen you. I have been gushing to everyone how it is my new favorite wedding magazine!!

    Oh Man! I wish I had known about the D*S book signing, What a treat! My gorgeous copy of SW4 came through the SWPS. What a lovely package to be delivered just in time to visit family. I got to show off my ring shot (by Nancy Ray) to my grandma on her birthday! She was so excited :) It really is Gooder than Grits!!

    Im new to Miami and I went to the Coral Gables Barnes and Noble to get the last issue and nearly through a fit because it wasn’t there!!! But I happened to be taking a trip to purchase some new reads and decided to give it another go! And I FOUND it! I was so excited! So everyone in Miami go to the Coral Gables Barnes and Noble!
