Google+ Engage!12: You Sweeten Our Tea! - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Howdy from the beautiful Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, where Emily (and Emily) and I have been engaging at the engage!12 Wedding Conference.

We’ve met so many new friends and had a wonderful time visiting with many of the remarkable vendors that have made our latest issue such a success. It has been a very inspiring week! I was happier as a pup with two tails to be invited to speak here and happy as a pup with three tails to share about how we do things ’round here at Southern Weddings.

Y’all know we do things a little differently. We’re small… and mighty… and Southern. We do all the layout, shipping, shoot creation, cleaning up after our messes and everything ourselves. We’re a tiny team with more passion than a hen has feathers. But, I didn’t talk about just us in my speech… I talked about YOU.

You are why we are here. You cheer us on and write us encouraging notes and share our magazine with dear friends and we sincerely wouldn’t be where we are without our very loyal readers. So, I wanted to just say a quick thank you. I wish I could jump through my screen to hug each of you, too. Thank you for believing in us and being our cheerleaders. Thank you, most of all though, for LOVING.

It’s because you love your fiancé’s and husbands and families and this magical place we call home so much that we are inspired every day to do what we do and we have so much goodness ahead! We love y’all! You sweeten our tea!

    I have been following your time at the conference on Instagram since Sunday, and it looks like it was such a rewarding experience! I would have loved to be there to hear you share your story and wisdom, and I hope to attend one of these conferences in the future!

    You got no idea how much you inspire me! I used to save a photo that I liked. But now it became an obsession. I want to memorize EVERYTHING I see on your page!
