Google+ Southern Weddings V5 is Here + The V5 Photo Contest! - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Pop, fizz, clink!! It’s time to turn up the tunes and have a little dance party with us, because it’s officially here! As of today, our biggest (by 48 whole pages!) and most gorgeous (there is gold foil on the cover!) issue, Southern Weddings Volume 5, is officially available on newsstands (although, keep in mind shipping is delayed due to Sandy so order direct from us if you want your copy NOW!) and online! Let’s do it again for good measure… pop, fizz, clink, y’all!!

As you might have noticed, we’re pretty excited about this issue. Not only because we’ve been working away on it for eight long months, but because we think you’ll notice something a little different when you crack open the cover. This year we rolled out the Sweet Tea Society, and far from being a standalone blog post, we’ve truly taken it to heart, allowing it to infuse every choice we made while making this issue: which weddings we featured, how we structured our shoots, the photos we included, even the order of the magazine and the font choices! So in addition to the Southern details we’ve always been known for, we’re thrilled that this issue makes even more obvious what we’ve believed for a long time: that it’s not enough to focus on a beautiful wedding — no, we’re all about beautiful marriages. Love never fails, y’all.

V5 lights our hearts on fire. For its absolutely stunning real weddings, its glorious Southern editorial shoots, and its tons of fun Surcees (our new term for Fab Finds!). For its stunning photography, thick glossy pages, and metallic (!) cover. But mostly, for its focus on lifelong vows, on family traditions, on true love, and on intentional marriages.

So when you pick up your copy, we invite each of you to not only celebrate with us, but to renew your belief in true love. And if you choose, we welcome you to show your support by posting one of our Love Never Fails badges to your blog or site. (Just right click on the badge of your choice (below) and hit save!)

Of course, we can’t celebrate our fifth anniversary issue without our traditional photo contest! Take a photo of yourself with V5 and send it to us — the more creative the better! We’ll feature our favorite submissions on the blog and then vote on them. You have until December 3 to send your photo to [email protected] with “V5 Photo Contest” in the subject line or to tweet it at us @iloveswmag.

The winner will receive their choice of personalized Emily Ley iPhone cases!

We’re happier than a pig in mud, y’all!

    I am so excited to pick up a copy! My newly engaged soon to be sister in law and I have traded screen shots of the beautiful magazine so far- and she ended up going with a color change for her bridesmaids after seeing the gorgeous cover! So excited to browse (and swoon a little bit over) the magazine with her as I help her plan her big day to my sweet brother! :)
