Kristin + JJ had just two and half months to plan their wedding, but for a couple who has spent most of their relationship long distance, it was the perfect amount of time to pull together the details and say “I do.” The newlyweds filled their outdoor ceremony and reception at the Whitford Plantation with old Southern hymns and sentimental bluegrass. It was the Avett Brothers’ music, after all, who helped Kristin + JJ fall in love. We’re sending out big hugs to Scott Piner who shared this wedding with us!

Since we had only 2.5 months to plan the wedding, I knew I would not have much time to find a dress and that I would have to buy my dress right off the rack and cross my fingers for a very quick seamstress to do any needed alterations. No pressure. While calling many bridal salons in the Raleigh area, my girlfriend and I encountered many shops that would not even consider having me look at their dresses because of my time constraint. Almost defeated, we called one of our thought-to-be long shots and to our surprise, the shop manager answered and graciously welcomed us to come and see their sample dresses that day. The first dress I tried on was an ivory Chantilly lace gown by Vera Wang. I tried on several dresses after, but none compared with the first gown’s blend of the vintage ivory lace with contemporary lines. So I purchased that flawless sample dress for less than half of the marketed price because it was from a previous year’s collection.

How cool are those feather bouts? They were made in memory of Kristin’ grandfather and in celebration JJ, the family’s newest hunter.

Did you write your own vows? No way!! We both felt the same way when we asked each other about the possibility of writing our own vows. We both know how we feel about one another and there was no way either of us could verbalize those thoughts when we were so emotionally charged.

Describe the proposal. We had just finished lunch when I was making brownies for JJ to bring to work. I overheard JJ playing the guitar in the office. I put my brownies into the oven walked with my coffee in hand to sit by JJ and listen to him serenade me. He began to play and sing my beloved ballad by the Avett Brothers; and by this time I had begun to harmonize with his handsome voice. After we finished the song, he crawled over to me and we embraced. The moment was perfect, except that I felt his heart pounding very hard in his chest. As I withdrew to ask him if he was okay, I saw him holding a box out to me and then he asked me. I said yes and we embraced again. I love that our story was low key and involved all my favorite things: baking, coffee, music and my love.

I’m crazy for the antique vases and blue bell jars filled with delicate flowers that K chose as centerpieces.

My most favorite flower is the hydrangea. I have admired them since childhood, when I used to watch my grandmother water and tend to her huge hydrangea bushes in New Jersey. Instead of ornate arrangements we wanted an understated, fresh look. We chose to use a mixture of hydrangeas in blues, greens and whites along with drosophila for added texture and bells of Ireland for height all arranged in the colored canning glass jars JJ and I collected over the two months leading up to the big day.

Describe your wedding cake: Originally, I found myself drawn to the texture and structural designs of a fondant cake, but we were unwilling to sacrifice flavor for design. Our baker, Ali, helped us attain both with a very simple design of a smooth European buttercream frosting while getting the desired texture with simple dots of all sizes and rows of beading.

A sparkly dress and loose hair definitely spell “magical getaway” style to me!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. Our relationship was a subject of much prayer, faithfulness of true friends and grace of the Lord. Two and a half years ago, we met through our married friends Lindsay and Bryan. And what do any two married people do when they have two single friends? Try to get them together. Unfortunately at the time, JJ lived in Lake Tahoe and only came home to visit periodically. We met at a couple of times at laid back dinner gatherings with bunches of friends, not getting much time to speak one on one. In fact, one of the first times I really spoke to him was when I was drilling a hole in his nail that he crushed in the garage door the morning prior. Shortly after this, JJ left for a voluntary deployment overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan with the Coast Guard. He emailed me once in the first part of his deployment to fill me on his well-healing nail bed and then returned home during his mid deployment break. During his break, I saw him a couple times at Bryan and Lindsay’s, and we actually were able get to know each other a little better. He returned for the rest of his deployment for the next five months and we exchanged emails getting to know each other. We became and remained friends alone, though. I did not see him until four months after he returned from his deployment, but even through life’s twists and turns, we still ended up at a very familiar place — in Lindsay and Bryan’s backyard laughing and talking by the fire. One night, the boys were playing some familiar songs on the banjo and guitar when JJ started to sing and play my favorite love ballad by the Avett Brothers. Listening to him play and having learned his heart, I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him by my side.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Fresh, serene and intimate.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: I couldn’t really name just one detail of the wedding that I could call my favorite. Rather, all the crafts that we incorporated into the ceremony and reception truly made our celebration personal. Some of those crafts included the colored glassware we collected, the fan programs, the votive favors made with sea glass from beaches in Hawaii and sand from Atlantic beach, the Chinese lanterns that JJ and our crew hung the day of the wedding, boutonnières I made from duck feathers that JJ and Bryan had captured together, the veil that I bedazzled by gluing 300 Swarovski crystals onto, the flower girl basket I made and decorated, the wreath that hung on the front door to the plantation, and finally, the family pictures of both our parents and grandparents that we displayed at the entrance.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Both JJ and I tend to migrate to a style that seems to be a marriage of contemporary lines with a vintage feel. It was only natural for that to be tone of the wedding. With my affinity for my mom’s antique aqua canning jars, I chose to use a mixture of them for the centerpieces with simple hydrangeas, wild flowers and candles for the centerpieces. In memory of my beloved grandfather and in celebration of the new addition of a hunter to my family, we used of duck feathers for all the gentlemen’s boutonnieres. Even the music reached into the Southern pocket. The ceremony music was a collection of old Southern hymns played on an acoustic guitar, while the first song JJ and I danced to as a married couple was a folk bluegrass favorite by the Avett Brothers. Another Southern touch was the fans we made and gave to guests to cool themselves with during the course of the outside service. One of the largest Southern elements was the backdrop for our wedding ceremony and reception, the beautiful Whitford Plantation. The plantation is a beautifully grand and historic structure with spacious grounds that were owned by a Confederate colonel John Nathaniel Whitford.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Our biggest challenge for sure was planning the wedding in 2.5 months. This was mainly due to finding an available venue. Our families are of utmost importance to us and we wanted to make sure that all our families were going to be able to come and be a part of our celebration. Looking back, we both would not want to do it any differently. I believe we would literally pull our hair out if we had to spread planning a wedding over any kind of extended period of time.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? I think the most memorable moments of the wedding day were all the little times of respite between JJ and I, when we had a second to take in the fact that the day was actually here. 

What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are looking forward to being in the same town. Our relationship, including the first two and half months of marriage, has been long distance. We have been commuting three hours to see one another, so it will be awesome just to be able come home to one another.

Emily and I both agree that we’re feeling a little removed from reality this week. (She says it’s felt like Thursday since Tuesday!) Maybe it’s that our office is being taken over by photo shoot props or that we’ve been thrown off by our midweek power outage (hello, Southern thunderstorms!). Either way, we’re thankful that Friday is finally here and that we have a moment of rest before we head off to another V5 photo shoot on Monday!

Emily’s been talking about watermelon all summer and couldn’t wait to share some of that sweet inspiration with y’all!

Marissa really knows the way to my heart. This week, she’s sharing the details behind a true Southern favorite, the Krispy Kreme donut.

We are so excited that July’s Southern Bride of the Month is not only a reader, but a vendor! Get to know Molly Gee, her adorable pup and her Christmas proposal story here.

Real Weddings brighten our day!

Y’all, I love The Bachelorette. I think my TV watching habits are of a quality generally accepted in most circles, but The Bachelorette is my one weakness. I won’t go so far as to say I watch it religiously or intensely… but, I kind of do. In fact, my future sisters and brothers in law (so, all the kids and significant others on John’s side of the family) actually run a pool for each season, where “players” are drafted and points are totaled after each episode. Yes, this really happens.

And of all the bachelors and bachelorettes I have watched go on this show? Emily Maynard, the bachelorette for the season that ended on Sunday, is by far my favorite. She’s a Southern gal, and she just seems so sweet, strong, and determined to make good decisions for herself and her family. I am thrilled that she chose Jef (love him!), and am now crossing my fingers and toes that they’ll get married in Charleston (as they hinted at on Sunday!) and that their wedding will be featured in a future issue of Southern Weddings.

Besides my love for Emily and Jef, there was one other reason I was excited to watch the finale. Our friends at Love Ophelia tipped us off that Emily would be wearing their coral robe and nightie, so I kept an eye out for it the entire episode. And sure enough, Emily was sporting this beauty on the balcony before the final rose ceremony (there’s always a balcony scene, friends!). When your delicates are approved by the South’s most fashionable Bachelorette, you know you’ve got a good thing going.

Of course, there’s a lot to love about Love Ophelia besides their recent cameo on ABC. Their line of ultra-girly, boho delicates is inspired by romantic vintage pieces, and are perfect for brides to relax and get ready in. They also make a wonderful gift for bridesmaids! Even the colors sound delightful – coral, mint, rose, lemon…

I also love how thoughtful and personal this company is. Their lace collection was inspired by the wedding of one of Love Ophelia’s owners, Candice, and they donate a portion of every sale to a charity or cause that moves them. They even invite their customers to introduce them to causes with which they might not be familiar. As they say, it’s all about love.

Best news of the day? You lovelies have a chance to win one of these beautiful creations! Just comment below answering one of the following (or, if you’re feeling inspired, both of the following!):

A. Whether you were on Team Jef or Arie
B. Which color from the Serendipity collection is your favorite

We’ll pick a winner from the comments next week, and she’ll win a “something blue” — the Serendipity robe in dusty blue!

  8. avatar Lauren reply

    Definitely Team Jef. I think when it came down to it she’d rather have someone strong in their own faith than no faith at all and I couldn’t agree more! Love that! Can’t decide which color I like best.. D. All of the above.

  9. avatar Macy Stewart reply

    I was team Jef and would love to curl to to watch Bachelor Pad in a Love Ophelia Robe! I love the ivory color!

  11. avatar Kristen reply

    Team Jef! I think he and Emily really bring out the best in each other. I love the coral color that Emily wore – probably because coral is one of my wedding colors and I can’t get enought of it these days!

  12. avatar Christine reply

    Team Jef of course! And I love the blue!

  13. avatar Erica reply

    Definitely team Jef, though still not certain if it will work out- what was with the delay on answering his proposal?? I couldn’t get out the words “yes I will marry you” fast enough!!

    And the blue is definitely my fav :)

  14. avatar Holli W reply

    Team Jef all the way mainly because I like that he was off the beaten path and was uniquely himself. Anything blue is perfect in the Ophelia robe & would go perfect for my upcoming wedding ; ))))

  15. avatar Lauren K. reply

    I love the Blush color, so romantic! I hope to win, what a perfect robe for the honeymoon :)

  20. avatar Laura reply

    I hope I win because the dusty blue is already my favorite color!

  21. avatar Kelly reply

    I am team Jef and the lemon is my favorite color :)

  22. avatar Brittney Perryman reply

    This Bachelorette finale was by far the hardest for me because I loved both of the final men! Arie was clearly gaga over Emily, but the connection she shared with Jef {with one f} was palpable through the TV! Over the course of the season, I grew to love Jef as much as I loved Arie on the first night. On the night of the finale, I found myself on Team Jef! I really admire Emily for having the guts to send Arie home when she knew that Jef was the one. And the way he was with Little Ricki made me tear up! Jef is undoubtedly the man Emily is meant to spend forever with.

    Everything from Love Ophelia is gorgeous, but my favorite color is coral! I’m a blonde like Emily with the same skin complexion, so I know this color would look fab on me!

  23. avatar Jess reply

    My favorite color is the coral which is my main wedding color but we also have accents of dusty blue and of course white! So really I love all the colors! These looks super comfy and I love the rompers!

  24. avatar Allison reply

    I’m loving both the mint because it’s the color of the Victorian home where I’m getting married!

  25. avatar Molly king reply

    Team Jef all the way, there just seems to be more chemistry

    Rose sounds stunning and romantic

  26. avatar Christina Shippey reply

    Coral-loved it when Emily wore it on the show! I was team Arie-but I hope she and Jef will be very happy together! :(

  27. avatar Megan reply

    I started out as Team Arie but towards the end Jef definitely grew on me and I’m happy she chose him! The blush robe would go perfectly with my theme!

  28. avatar Caitlin reply

    I was Team Jef ALL THE WAY! Arie brought heat and passion but Jef is the total package: sweet,thoughtful,funny,& adventurous! And I would have to say that the blue is my fave, so pretty :)

  29. avatar Kelsey B. reply

    I was definitely Team Jef! Emily and Jef were so comfortable and goofy around eachother that it was just natural. And the way Jef interacted with little Ricky sealed the deal! They will make the cutest little family!

    And I love the Serendipity “dusty blue”! A very close match to Carolina blue :)

    I was so torn! I loved that Arie was so funny but was worried he only liked her because he was so physically attracted to her. I like that Jef mentioned God’s plan and timing! He seemed more family friendly. :) I love the coral robe! So chic!

    LOVE the coral – gorgeous!! Team Jef!

  34. avatar Deserie Fernandez reply

    I was Team Jef from the begining. This is the best couple of all the bachelor/bachelorettes. I would have to say the dusty blue is my favorite, lately I have fallen in love with that color.

  35. avatar Afton reply

    The coral color is great and looks good on any complexion! I would love to win the dusty blue robe for my something blue on my upcoming wedding day, September 2!! Can’t wait!

  36. avatar Evelyn reply

    Team Jef With One F all the way! And, with regards to the more pressing of the two questions, Dusty Blue is tops for me. Although, I do really adore the Blush and Mint hues as well. Such a fabulous collection.

  37. avatar Sarah reply

    I was Team Jef for sure!! I love the blush color… which is one of my wedding colors… but the blue just for the wedding night would be fantastic, too!!

  38. avatar Brooklynne Gladysz reply

    Does Team Sean count? :) Im glad she chose Jef over Arie and I love the coral!

  39. avatar Sarah-Belle reply

    I’m in love with all of the colors! The coral is probably my favorite (but that’s one of my wedding colors!), the cream colored one is so sophisticated, and the powdered blue is definitely a sleepy-time color.

    I love the blue– it’s so fresh and lovely.

    Team Indecisive? I have a way of rooting for everyone … I couldn’t choose. Same with the colors, although dusty blue is my favorite at the moment.

  60. avatar Dania reply

    Team Jef! In the first episode when Jef skateboarded in, Emily giggled and beamed, and you could tell she had a crush on him! Not only is he genuine and fun, he is also a giver; his company People Water gives a portion of proceeds to build clean drinking water around the world. I wish the best for Ricki, Jef, and Emily!

    My favorite color is Ivory. It is a fresh and soft color that would be perfect for a summer day. Maybe even an upcoming wedding:)

  91. avatar Katie reply

    I didn’t watch the bachelorette until towards the end, and at that point I was team sean :( but I recently went back and watched some of the earlier episodes, and now I am definitely team jef! I loved the line he said in his first one on one date, about finding someone to share the details with…made me tear up and especially realize how lucky I am to be marrying my best friend in december. And of course my favorite color is the blue, blue colors bring out the blue in my eyes :)

  92. avatar Lisa reply

    Team Jef! But it was a hard choice–Arie was a sweetheart too! All the Serendipity robes are lovely, but I think my favorite color is the coral that Emily wore. Fingers crossed that we’ll be seeing her in a future issue of SW! :)

  93. avatar Lauren Y. reply

    Hi! I was Team Jef for sure! Wishing the new family all the best! Looking at the Serendipity collection, I also have to say that I love the Serendipity robe in blush! Dusty blue is definitely a close second, so being lucky enough to win it would also make my day :)

  94. avatar kristin reply

    All the pieces are amazing but right now I’m loving the coral and yellow.
