Y’all have been caught up on what’s been happening behind the scenes in the Southern Weddings office for June, but we can’t forget about rounding up some of our favorite highlights from our Real Weddings! Emily, Marissa and I are here with our lovely features.
FAVORITE WEDDING DRESS: Jillian’s lightly tiered dress looked lovely against the backdrop of her barn wedding and stole Marissa’s heart in the process! Emily was taken with the classic Southern lace that Christine wore, while I adored the sweet white dress that Samantha wore for her getaway.
FAVORITE BRIDESMAID DRESS: Ellie’s bridesmaids were a wonderful example of mixed bridesmaids dresses looking lovely. I love how they comfortable they look, too! Emily and Marissa loved the uniform look. Emily was a fan of Christine’s pale blue bridesmaids and Marissa couldn’t get enough of the ruffled turquoise dresses at Hillary’s wedding.
FAVORITE FEMALE ACCESSORY: The baby’s breath and pink rose hair wreath that Hillary’s flower girl donned was just about the cutest thing I ever saw! Marissa adored another flower girl from a June wedding — the Southern-as-can-be gingham and lace outfit in Jillian + Marcus’ ceremony. Emily’s eye was drawn to the glittery pumps that Austin wore.
FAVORITE MENSWEAR: Y’all know how sweet we are on the beaus and bows on the blog! Bart’s groomsmen’s black and white gingham number took Marissa’s vote, while the glittery wrap from Steven’s boutonniere was too good for Emily to pass up. I fell head over heels for the hip gentlemen in Samantha + John’s wedding.
FAVORITE DETAIL: Oh the details. Our couples are so creative! Sigrid + Bart won me over when they decided to lead their guests to the reception area with giant polka dotted balloons. Emily loved how Jillian + Marcus used painted pie tins as food signs! Of course, the colorful “Here Comes the Bride” banner at Mariangelix + Steven’s wedding won Marissa’s vote.
FAVORITE CEREMONY: Ceremonies are my favorite part of the wedding to read about (other than the proposal story!). The monogram details and classic setup at Hillary + Kyle’s ceremony won Emily over. Marissa loved the outdoor ceremony space at Jillian + Marcus’ wedding. I thought Erika + Jon’s “I do’s” in her mother’s backyard was so memorable.
FAVORITE BOUQUET: We’re always impressed by how unique bouquets can be! The colorful mix of lush flowers from Austin + Steven’s wedding became an instant favorite with Emily. I was smitten with the sweet colors and mixed textures of Jillian’s bouquet (plus that ribbon — I die!). Marissa adored the colorful bouquet that Mariangelix carried down the aisle, plus her pretty ribbon and brooch.
FAVORITE SWEET: Is anyone surprised that Marissa’s favorite sweet was Hillary + Kyle’s classic white and monogrammed cake? I thought Sigrid + Bart’s collection of pink ruffled cakes was adorable and Emily loved the late-night chocolate milk and donut hole desserts at Austin + Steven’s wedding.
FAVORITE PHOTO: This is always our favorite category to pick highlights from! How sweet is the photo of Samantha walking down the aisle? Emily thought so, too! Marissa (and the rest of us) thought Hillary’s sleepy flower girl was too cute to ignore. I loved the joy and community that emanated from the photo of Erika + Jon’s toasts.
