What are everyone’s thoughts on Labor Day weekend? I’m a little torn between loving the long weekend and dreading the end of summer. The good news is that in the South, summer seems to last a lot longer.
We always love starting off our week with a Southern Delicacy. Marissa told us all about cheese straws — the ideal snack for a hostess to have on hand.
We can’t do a Summer in the South without thinking about our gents! Darren from Well Groomed popped in to give us his men’s summer essentials.
August’s Southern Bride of the Month, Rachel, told us all about the details of her wedding — just days before she says “I do!” We adore their state pride and sweet proposal.
We can’t say goodbye to National Peach Month without one last shout-out to our favorite summer fruit. Read all about peaches here.
We couldn’t resist sharing this adorable styled shoot with you. This idea for a pre-wedding waffle brunch with your sweetie doesn’t get any better!
Real Weddings put a smile on our faces
Melanie + Joe know how to celebrate — with glitter, that is. We just love how their sweet “I do’s” turned into a glamorous celebration. See it here.
Kelsey + Evan’s wedding was full of sweet Southern style staged in a lovely and modern space. See it here.
Katie + Mike’s seaside wedding turned our favorite wedding colors into a poppy and preppy soiree! See it here.
We’re sending out giant hugs to those belles and beaus who are saying “I do” this weekend, including our Southern Bride Blogger, Whitney and our Southern Bride of the Month, Rachel! Congratulations y’all!
Finally, we wanted to leave you with a beautiful wedding photo from one of our readers, Kori. We love using this space to share photos and stories from y’all, from our community. Today’s is a little different, however. Kori and her husband Matt were married in June 2012. Tragically, Matt was struck and killed by a car while riding his bicycle just a month and a half after their wedding day. All of the Southern Weddings ladies have been thinking so much about Kori and her family lately, who remind us to be grateful for everything and every day we have, and we wanted to invite you to join us in sending good thoughts and prayers her way.
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
It is just starting to warm up here in San Francisco (we have cold summers, and then warm September-October) so it’s kind of the start of summer here! If you’re feeling blue about fall, come visit me! I love my SWMag ladies! xxx
Thanks for the fun round-up! Summer in NYC is still going for now, but the weather could drop any minute, you never know. And I’m so sorry about what Kori has experienced.
That is so tragic. Kori and her late husband Matt are definitely in my thoughts and prayers!
Such i beautiful pictures! I want my wedding to be at least the half of yours Nicole! Congratulations
Love the peaches post!!
