Happy Wednesday, friends! Are y’all feeling the holidays in the air? Sure, it’s getting mighty cold around here, but that’s a sign that the fun is coming! My favorite part about this time of year is the gathering of family and friends. It’s what we love about weddings, and it’s why we love this feature. Y’all know nothing gathers people to one spot quite like good Southern food. We’ve done biscuit bars, biscuit favors and even a biscuit cake in another V6 feature. This one, however, is a good ole spin on traditional recipes handed down from our grandmas and the food staples of the South. Might it inspire some last-minute Thanksgiving menu changes?

This feature was truly an in-office collaboration. These three spreads contain the illustrations of Lara and our intern, Morgan, the hand-lettering of our own Emily (who has hand-lettered quite a few of our features now!) and some Photoshop magic from Adobe and myself. It was truly meant to be viewed as a whole, so we love that we can share these spreads directly from V6 with you!

You didn’t think I’d tease you with those tiny photos, did you? Our photographer Eric Kelley did an amazing job capturing the delectable ingredients that Chef Crawford and Chef Benjamin from The Umstead Hotel created and styled. Here’s a closer view. (Be warned: you will become very hungry!)

Aren’t those kissing fishies the cutest?

We are glad that our chefs were well-prepared and had plenty of leftovers. The whole team kept sneaking back to the kitchen to nibble on extra biscuits. The sweet potato and herb biscuits were my favorite!

Are y’all’s mouths watering yet? Look at those berries, below!! Gorgeous!

Now if that doesn’t call for the addition of a biscuit bar to tomorrow proceedings, I don’t know what will! We love each of these for incorporating our favorite Southern flavors. Which one is your favorite?

    Sometimes, the tiniest details just sing in a wedding, don’t they? I knew the instant I saw these delightful favors that they’d be perfect for a Southern Spotting. Southern food is a huge part of Carly and Rich’s lives, and so muslin bags of biscuit mix, tied off with Carly’s grandmother’s biscuit recipe, were a perfect offering to their guests. Lucky & Lovely did a beautiful job with the design, too!

    The lovely bride, Carly, let us in on the inspiration behind these special favors:

    “Since our Southern roots are deep, we wanted our guests to enjoy a something Southern with their family or friends when they returned home from our wedding. My grandmother always made homemade buttermilk biscuits for anyone who might drop by for a visit. I will always cherish the fun and memories of cooking with grandma, and we hope our guests can carry this tradition on in their families for year to come!”

    Our thanks to CWF Photography for sharing these lovely images with us!

    Happy Monday, ladies + gents! I know you probably just had breakfast a few hours ago, but I hope you have an appetite, because our next V4 feature is downright delicious! Jose Villa and Lisa Vorce teamed up to create this gorgeous spread featuring every Southerner’s favorite carbohydrate: the biscuit! Let me walk you through a few of their yummy ideas, which imagine even more ways to incorporate the humble biscuit into your wedding day.

    Biscuits packaged in a cloth wrap and accompanied by a small jar of favorite (or homemade!) jam are a perfect breakfast treat delivered to guest hotel rooms.

    Mini biscuits slid into delicate paper wrapping are a gorgeous favor (they’d look perfect set at each place setting!).

    Petite kraft paper bags look darling holding ham biscuits. Position a table full of these beauties at the door of your venue for a midnight snack to go.

    On the left: biscuits topped with caviar and chives are an unexpectedly upscale hors d’oeuvres. On the right: a paper bag filled with freshly-baked biscuits and preserves could easily stand in for a wedding weekend welcome bag.

    Gold-flecked biscuits?? My stars! We can’t imagine anything prettier. (And yes, the gold flakes are edible!)

    On the left: We LOVE this idea — screenprinting Grandma’s famous biscuit recipe onto a cloth bag, then filling it with delicious examples of her baking prowess. On the right: Another variation on the biscuit welcome wagon: kraft box + hot pepper jelly + custom label.

    Last but certainly not least, we have these delicate and delightful biscuit sandwiches. Perfect passed at cocktail hour!

    Do you love these biscuit ideas as much as we do? Give a hearty thanks to photographer Jose Villa, stylist and planner Lisa Vorce, and paper details guru Wiley Valentine! Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse provided the gorgeous backdrop. And tell me: Will you be incorporating biscuits into your wedding?

      I love the idea of having biscuits be part of the welcome bag! Such a cute plan for guest’s breakfast or a late night snack without having an elaborate meal.

      My question does not pertain directly to this post, however it is in the magazine and I’m not sure what other way to ask the question. Approximately (5) pages in, there is section of photos across the bottom of the page. There is a photograph in the middle of a girl walking in a field in a wedding gown. She has her hands in the pockets and the dress has a lace upper with a v in the back. I VERY much love the look of the dress from behind and I’m wondering who the designer is so that I might be able to find it and see what the front looks like. Thanks so much for your help!! Love you magazine!!
