It takes a unique kind of gent to fit into the overly hug-y, intensely photo loving Southern Weddings clan, but Taylor has handled the role with aplomb ever since we met him. We’re so glad he and Nicole have found each other, and thrilled to have him as one of our Southern Gents. Ladies, please enjoy learning a bit more about Taylor!
Name: Taylor D. Adams
What is your job? Television Producer
Your Southern Weddings gal: The lovely and talented Nicole A. Yang.
How and when you became a Southern Weddings gent: We met at a mutual friends’ birthday weekend in Kitty Hawk, NC in 2012. She was the first person to greet me when I walked in the door. She stole my hat.
What is your favorite SW memory? Definitely the launch party for V5. It was my first introduction to the Southern Weddings world, and everyone was so awesome and welcoming to me. The food… ah, yes. The food was awesome.
What is the craziest thing you’ve done in the name of SW? I’ve worn a bow tie. Twice.
What contributions have you made to SW that people may not realize? I kind of forced my way into consulting on the Mason-Dixon Madness Southern Food bracket. Nicole let me look it over before it was posted, and I showed her how a seeding system could be utilized so only the best foods (or drinks) won. I was rooting for mac ‘n’ cheese.
What is something you shouldn’t know about weddings, but do, thanks to SW? That coral is not orange, and vice versa.
Have you ever been recognized by a stranger because of SW? I haven’t had the honor yet.
What percentage of your social media followers come from SW? .1%? Nicole has way more clout than I do. It’s hard to compete with SW fame.
What is the best thing about being an SW gent? The food. Definitely the food.
What is your least favorite thing about being an SW gent? Wearing bow ties.
If given the chance, would you become a Southern Weddings employee? I’d need to see a contract. No doubt there would need to be compensation in chicken and waffles, and an addendum on chess pie.
Anything else you want to add? It’s really impressive to see all the hard work these ladies do come to fruition once the issue comes out. It is a humbling experience to know how much effort and passion they put into SW.
