Happy Saturday! This week has flown by–Emily and I started the week with a little road trip up to Northern Virginia for a V7 shoot, which was so much fun. We stayed at the beautiful Salamander Resort (Honey List post coming soon!), tried to restrain ourself at Lucketts, and had a wonderful shoot with Blue Ribbon Vendor Holly Chapple and our talented photographer friend, Katie Stoops. Don’t forget to follow #MakingSouthernWeddings on Instagram for sneak peeks of V7 all summer long!
In case you missed it this week…
Janelle and Paul‘s chance meeting led to the loveliest Palmetto Bluff wedding!
Maria and Jack‘s North Carolina wedding was full of colorful Southern fun!
Amy and Joseph‘s Charleston wedding was sparkly and elegant–we loved seeing our V6 cover gown on a bride!
Leanne and Jason included the most beautiful family heirlooms and sweet traditions in their Texas wedding.
On Southern Living:
We started our wedding guest etiquette series with tips for before the wedding.
The number one piece of advice we read from the sweet brides we feature is that engaged gals should focus on their marriages rather than just their weddings. We believe this wholeheartedly (check out our Sweet Tea Society manifesto to read more about what we believe!), but also know that it’s often easier said than done. That’s why we’re excited to share any tools we can find that will help brides plan for a strong marriage in the midst of cake tastings and DIY projects. For those of you planning a faith-based wedding, A Christ-Centered Wedding includes practical advice and information to help you with the nuts and bolts of your wedding, like timelines and budgeting tips, but most of all, it keeps God’s love and His plan for marriage as the focus throughout your engagement.
Have a delightful weekend!
