    Friends, it is with great joy and only a few butterflies that I introduce you to… the Southern Weddings Tenth Anniversary cover!!!

    It was no small task choosing an image that sums up not only this beautiful issue but ten whole years of our work and our heart, but friends… I think we did it :)

    Because you know what? In the end, it comes down to love. Real love — not airbrushed love, not perfect love, but love that grows with you, love that sustains you for a lifetime, love that adds beauty and dimension to every facet of your life.

    After ten years, if you’ve learned nothing else from us, we hope that you’ve joined us in this: the belief that cultivating what matters, right where you are — as a Southerner, as an engaged gal, as a bride, as a wife — it matters. It can change the world, starting with the world of your union, and then rippling out from there.

    Ashley and David are a real, dear couple to us, with a real marriage, a real love, and real joy. We’re thrilled to have them on our cover, standing in for every perfectly imperfect story we’ve had the honor of touching over the last decade.

    Our tenth anniversary cover doesn’t look like every other one you’ll see on newsstands, and we love that. We believe weddings should be filled with joy (heyyyy, Joyful Wedding Planner!), and so we chose the most joyful image we could to represent Volume 10. We knew it was the one as soon as we saw Anna Shackleford’s final images come back from the lab (thank you, Richard Photo Lab!!).

    The sweetest part? This wasn’t even a planned “pose,” or one we had on our shot list. It was taken at the end of the day, after we had wrapped up shooting and were walking back to our supplies. David scooped up his bride to carry her over the grass, and Anna snapped a few last shots.

    And y’all? This cover is important, but it’s just the beginning. Our tenth anniversary issue is packed full of content that will spur you on to create your own legacy of a strong, rich, joyful marriage through 12 real weddings, seven editorials, practical planning advice, and an entire section devoted to newlywed life.

    Our official release is three weeks from today (Thursday the 9th!), but preorders are open now! They’ll ship a few days before our newsstand launch date, and include a bundle of extra goodies we think you’ll love!

    THANK YOU, ANNA AND THE INVISION EVENTS TEAM!!!

    In the meantime, we’re DYING to know: What do y’all think??? Are you as excited about our tenth anniversary issue as we are? :)

    P.S. A walk down memory lane… the V9 cover reveal (plus a fun video!), the V8 cover reveal, the V7 cover reveal, and the V6 cover reveal (including one of my favorite cover stories ever!)!

      Love it!!! The joy on their faces captures what a wedding day is all about. I married my husband four months ago, and was surprised when my favorite images weren’t the careful planned design images, but the ones that captured our true emotions of the day. Can’t wait to get this issue in my hands!

    2. avatar Kyla Shattuck reply

      LOVE IT! And eagerly counting down the days until the launch!

    3. avatar Stephanie Shaul reply

      AHH!!! Ladies, it is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! So, so radiantly joyful and euphoric. And I can just feel their love!

      Stunning work, as always! I can’t wait to get it in my hands!!

      Oh my lanta!! This cover radiates joy and embodies everything I feel SW stands for. A heartfelt congratulations to y’all, from a HUGE fan and Charleston reader.

    5. avatar Christina Frederick reply

      You all have done it again! As an avid SW fan from issue one I can honestly say that your heart for true love and what matters most has evolved in to an amazing collection of goodness! Each issue is always better than the last, yet they all hold tight to truth and beautiful stories of love. Bravo for coming so far, yet staying so true! Congratulations to the cover team, the issue is beautiful and I can’t wait to see what’s inside!

      How can I order this magazine, or where to buy it?

    Our tenth anniversary issue debuts on November 9 (just four weeks away!!), but we’re thrilled to launch preorder sales in our online shop TODAY!

    You will NOT want to miss this issue, friends. New to these parts and not sure about why you’d preorder? Here are a few reasons you might want to consider it:

    A) You don’t live in the South. We have some distribution above the Mason-Dixon, but not as much as below, so it can be hard to find copies in stores if you’re in the North or West!
    B) You live in the South. Even if you’re in our neck of the woods, some readers and vendors have been known to buy every copy on the shelf!
    C) You want to make sure you have a copy on launch day, and don’t want to risk driving to multiple stores. (See above!)
    D) You want to receive our awesome preorder bonuses. This is the first time we’ve offered goodies to our early bird friends, and we’re excited about them! Check out the listing to see all the details.
    E) You are a Southern bride, a Southern bride-to-be, a Southern mama, or a Southern wedding enthusiast, and need a way to express your excitement for our tenth anniversary issue!! (And earn all of our hugs and kisses!)

    We can’t wait to unveil our cover soon (sooner than you think – it is so pretty!!!!!!!). Even more, we can’t wait to celebrate this issue with the incredible Southern Weddings community. We would love for you to save the date for our tenth anniversary launch party on November 9 at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, North Carolina! (And if not there, then on Instagram via #SouthernWeddings10!)

    But in the meantime, make sure you reserve your copy today! Toss the confetti, y’all!!

    With love,
    Kristin, Lara, Emily, Nicole, Marissa, Jess, Amber, Catherine, and Kaylee!
