One of the best things about weddings is their ability to take people away from their everyday lives, inviting them into the most special moments of a couple’s story, and reminding them that what truly matters, more than anything else, is love and family. This was certainly the case at Anne Sydney and Jesse’s wedding, where they literally transported their guests up a mountain, overlooking their beloved hometown. The setting was breathtaking, and dotted with sweet details in honor of their Kentucky roots, it was a magical place for these childhood sweethearts to celebrate their marriage!

We’re so grateful that Melanie Mauer and Jaclyn Journey shared this gorgeous day with us in V7!

Tell us all the basics of your wedding! The wedding was on June 29, 2013 at 5:30 P.M. at the First Baptist Church in Pikeville, Kentucky. The location was chosen because it was the church that we attended as children and both of our families were active in membership. We share many memories of our younger years there, as we participated in church plays, musicals, vacation Bible school, and other church-related activities together.

Our welcome boxes for our guests included macarons, sour hard candies, and M&M’s, all in our wedding colors. We also included a fun folded map and directional guide, which also included information on local restaurants and other attractions. For logistical purposes, we had all the guests bused up to the mountain after the ceremony. We included custom-made “bus tickets” with the ceremony programs, proclaiming that it was “Time to Celebrate Y’all,” and that this was their “Ticket to Ride.”

What was your favorite detail of the wedding? I was surrounded by ladies who played large roles at different stages in my life. Whether they were from high school, college, or my family, they were there to support me on the most important day of my life as my bridesmaids and maids and matrons of honor.

We wanted the flowers to reflect the feeling of the event–classic, laid back, sweet, fun, and beautiful. We chose white and ivory garden roses and mixed in some pops of peaches and corals, plus some dusty miller and lamb’s ear to bring in the greyed jade tone of the bridesmaids’ dresses. We used ivory Jeanne Moreau garden roses, caramel antique garden roses, white ranunculus, peachy coral Romantic Antique garden roses, peach and coral ranunculus, peach Juliet David Austin garden roses, dusty miller, and white peonies.

Who was one of the most special guests at your wedding? From Jesse: My grandfather on my father’s side. The Saturday before, he had buried my grandmother and his wife of over 60 years. I knew he was still reeling from the loss, but his presence in the front row of the church was a reassuring presence on our big day.

Groom’s favorite detail of the wedding: While not planned to intentionally coincide, our wedding date was also my parents’ 39th anniversary. In addition, our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony were at the same country club and church where my parents tied the knot all those years ago. It was a special feeling to know that nearly 40 years ago to the day, my father and mother were standing in the same place, committing themselves to each other.

The mountaintop venue inspired quite a lot of the design. We knew from the beginning that we wanted a sailcloth tent because we love the soft, illuminated feel that they bring. We had it set up at the edge of the mountain so that guests would have an incredible view. We wanted everything to feel soft, sweet, and classic. One of my favorite details was the custom wooden bars my brother-in-law built especially for our wedding. We also included a few pieces of polished coal on top of the bars, as well as affixing coal on push pins to secure the calligraphed seating charts to their display boards, as a nod to our Eastern Kentucky roots.

Did you have a cocktail hour? If so, what was it like? We did! The all-female bluegrass band, Coaltown Dixie, provided the music for the al fresco, café-lit event, which was immediately next to the sailcloth tent, facing the town of Pikeville below.

Were there any family traditions you included in the reception? My maternal grandmother made wedding mints for all her five children’s wedding receptions, as well as many other church weddings. It was fitting that a dear family friend used her recipe and made them for our wedding reception.

Dinner was served once all guests had arrived at the reception site. The meal was fully prepared at the remote location by the caterer and was simply some of the best food that we have ever eaten. Next on the agenda was dancing under the tent to music by the Jump Street Band. They were fantastic, playing a mixture of old and new, fast and slow tunes, keeping the dance floor overflowing from the time they began playing until the night was done. Late in the evening, late night snacks of warm beignets and mini coffee milkshakes were passed to guests.

After exiting the winding road to the beautiful mountaintop venue, we did not want the night to end yet, so we ended the evening by driving though our small hometown, being chauffeured by my father-in-law, reflecting on the tremendous day that we had just enjoyed.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. From Jesse: It was so long ago that I’m not sure either of us truly remembers. Our families went to the same church when we were kids. We think our first meeting was in a children’s Sunday school class. In any event, Anne Sydney’s family moved into town when she was in 6th grade and we went to school together thereafter.
Describe the proposal: From Jesse: It was the Thursday night before Memorial Day in 2012. We were planning to be apart that weekend so Anne Sydney could attend her friend’s bachelorette party. Little did she know, she wasn’t making the trip. In anticipation of our days apart, we had dinner at our favorite restaurant in downtown Lexington. My initial plan was to pop the question on our walk home from dinner down the historic and quaint South Mill Street. This idea was frustrated by the un-concealable size of the little blue box. Instead, we walked in the door to my home, and as Anne Sydney started up the stairs, I fell to a knee. The next morning, we traveled to the Greenbrier Resort to meet our parents and begin to plan for the great time ahead.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Magical, surreal, and breathtaking.
How many guests attended your wedding? About 470
What was the biggest challenge you faced while planning your wedding? Logistics–the site offering beautiful mountaintop views was not equipped with water, power, sewer, or any other modern convenience. The degree of planning to pull it off was immense. All of the needs of the over 450 guests had to be anticipated and provided for the 4+ hours that they were to be on the mountain celebrating with us. Luckily, my father is an engineer and was able to speak the language to the vendors and suppliers to pull off the event without a hitch.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress. I, my mother, my future mother-in-law, and my mother’s best friend traveled to NYC for appointments. After numerous fittings and rejections at Kleinfeld, I reluctantly took the advice of the consultant assisting me and tried a strapless Peter Langner gown. At first sight of me wearing this dress, everyone in the traveling party said in unison that this was it!! We kept our other scheduled appointments and learned that Mark Ingram Atelier carried Peter Langner gowns. Late that night, my mother went online and discovered that Mark Ingram was currently hosting Langner’s trunk show. She called at the first opportunity the next day, scoring an appointment for that same day. We later discovered that it normally takes six months for an appointment at this salon. I knew at that point that this was the dress that was meant for me!!
What advice would you give to someone currently planning his or her wedding? During the planning process, be sure to spend time with each other and make an attempt to not discuss wedding plans! It’s difficult, but planning a large celebration can become very overwhelming and stressful, and it is easy to lose sight of the true purpose of the celebration!

The summer months are jam-packed with goodness, aren’t they? From days out by the pool to nights under the stars, you just can’t beat warm Southern summers. We are so happy that y’all have taken time out of your busy summer days to check in to see some downright gorgeous Southern weddings. June has been chock-full of amazing nuptials and equally amazing giveaways. Whether you fancy jewelry or dresses, we are determined to get you all decked out for the summer season!

First up, we wanted to introduce a little sparkle into your summer with a giveaway from Desires by Mikolay’s Bling! line. With a dash of sophistication and a big dose of shine, the Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings from Desires by Mikolay will be perfect for your big day.

We asked y’all to tell us which Bling! accessory was your favorite for a chance to win a pair of Bling! Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings. Congratulations to Kathy M., who was won over by the blue topaz cocktail ring. Isn’t that color just marvelous?

A bride is faced with many choices when planning her big day and often at the top of the list for the style-conscious are the outfits. While that gorgeous white dress is the most important concern, you want your bridesmaids to look lovely, as well. Twobirds Bridesmaid deserves a round of applause for their genius concept. Twobirds dresses can be worn in a multitude of fashions so your maids can choose for themselves which look fits their personality best.

We asked you to tell us why your maid of honor means the world to you for the chance to win two dresses from Twobirds bridesmaid. Congratulations to Suzy, who chose two matrons of honor (who now each get to wear a gorgeous Twobirds dress)!

When the time came to choose my MOH, it was a no-brainer. I chose the TWO most wonderful and beautiful women in my life to be my Matrons of Honor. I’ve always known that on my wedding day, I would have only them stand beside me and no one else. It’s been the three of us since elementary school and our bond is one of my most prized possesions. We’ve gone from trading stickers, sleepovers and ballet class to dinner parties, careers and babies and everything in between. They’ve found the men of their dreams and now that I’m about to marry mine, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and love for these women and I know how fortunate I am. This wedding completes a chapter for us, in that we will all have found our counterpart and I would love nothing more than to gift them with these beautiful dresses.

Last week, we introduced you to one of the best Southern collaborations I’ve seen. Your beau will be the envy of all of his friends when he dons a Collared Greens bow tie, and you’ll be the belle of the ball when you carry a gorgeous clutch from Oatmeal Lace. Did we mention that the two of you will match beautifully? These are the perfect accessories for all of those summer weddings you’ve been invited to.

We asked y’all to tell us how you like to accessorize when you attend weddings (as a guest, of course). Congratulations to Miss Caitlin, who sounds like a real stunner:

My wedding guest accessories usually consist of jumbo sized pearls, a hair flower clip or headband, a cute clutch bag (like the one in this giveaway – wink, wink), and naturally, some fabulous heels (you have to make your calves look ahhmazing)!

Caitlin, be sure to send us some pictures of you and your man with your new Southern accessories! We’d love to see them!

Also, Oatmeal Lace and Collared Greens are each offering a special 10% discount to all of our lovely readers! Just enter the code “SWLOVE” at checkout!

Whew! It has been simply wonderful to share all of these amazing giveaways with you. Lucky winners, I will be contacting you by email in the next few days! We love our fabulous readers and we are so glad that you love us, too! Make sure you keep reading — there are more giveaways to come!

    Southern gents know that there’s something to be said for the perfect bow tie. Sure, ties are professional, but Southern gentlemen know that bow ties add a little playfulness and make a man look just dandy.

    If Southern gents are known for their bow ties, Southern gals are known for their ability to coordinate any outfit perfectly. Perfectly poised and put together, a Southern lady never forgets her pearls or that perfect clutch. And what could set a Southern gal’s heart to fluttering more than the chance to coordinate that perfect clutch with her beau’s bow?

    Oatmeal Lace, known for fabulous clutches, has struck a beautiful partnership with Collared Greens, an eco-chic menswear line (with a fabulously Southern name). A match made in heaven? We think so, and love that their giving us the opportunity to make the perfect match for one Southern couple: a perfectly coordinated bow tie and clutch! These pretty, preppy accessories will be perfect for all of those friends’ weddings you’ll be attending this summer.

    To Enter: Head on over to the Southern Weddings Facebook page and click the ‘Like’ button. Then scurry back over here and leave a comment telling us that you ‘like’ us. Lastly, tell us how you like to accessorize when attending a wedding (as a guest, naturally!).

    Win: A gorgeous Gingham Clutch from Oatmeal Lace and a matching Gingham Bow Tie from Collared Greens. You’ll be the best looking couple, no doubt!

    You have until next Tuesday, June 21st at midnight to enter!

      I’m a long-time facebook like-er of Southern Weddings! And gingham is my all-time favorite print… it’s even my blog background! For casual and outdoor weddings, I like to layer delicate gold necklaces, and for more formal weddings, I’m all about the pearls! Beautiful shoes are a given at any wedding (or party or dinner date, or really anything!) ;)

      Usually when I go to a wedding, I like to keep my dress simple and classic and really amp it up with the accessories! I like to do a solid dress with a bold pair of sky high heels. If I wear a coral colored dress, I love using turquoise accessories (necklace/clutch).

    24. avatar Mary L reply

      I like to wear solid classic dresses to weddings so I have to step it up with accessories so I don’t look boring. I definitely like to accessorize with a bold pair of sky high heels and fun necklaces and clutches. My philosophy is to throw one unexpected item into my outfit and a fun clutch would be PERFECT.

That’s almost too much to handle (almost)!

    33. avatar Rob!n C. reply

      I “liked” you on facebook if only they had a “love” button for you all!

      My favorite way to accessorize this year has been wearing a fun nail color like buttercup yellow with a honeysuckle colored dress! It’s an unexpected detail, plus my hands look cute when I get to show off my beautiful engagement ring!!!!!!!!!!!!

    34. avatar Megan reply

      Of course I have already “liked” ya’ll. I love to accessorize as a wedding guest by wearing colorful accessories to compliment my dress…and of course by sneakily matching my man (he hates when I make us too match-matchy)

    35. avatar Emily Lindner reply

      I love ya’ll on facebook!!! These would go perfect with our cotton boutonnieres down here in Mississippi!! But as I guest I love to wear a fun overly girly accessory like a huge bow headband to weddings! Can’t sleep tight without my daily fill of SWM! Love yall!

    36. avatar Jenny F. reply

      I “liked” you on facebook! I think the best way to accessorize is with some chunky statement jewelry. I’m a big lover of Etsy, beacuse they’ve got stuff there that you just can’t find anywhere else. It’s the kind of stuff that make people wanna strike up a conversation with you.

    37. avatar Elizabeth reply

      I “like” Southern Weddings and love all the great features y’all post! I recently discovered Oatmeal Lace, and think McKay has some absolutely beautiful designs, and I am loving the matching clutch and bow tie! When it comes to accessorizing for a wedding, I go for pieces that pop yet complement what I’m wearing:) And comfortable heels are always a must for the dance floor!

    38. avatar Marlowe Whittaker reply

      I “liked” yall on Facebook but I absolutely love yall. This clutch/bow tie combo is precious and perfect for a wedding. It would be the best couple accessory because I like to keep my style southern, classy and I’m always trying to get my Iowa boyfriend to get in touch with some southern roots.

    39. avatar Heather A. reply

      i “liked” y’all on facebook….i LOVE this…i don’t try to “match” my boyfriend, but i like for us to compliment….and i know, because we seem to go to a ton of weddings! this clutch and bow tie would be perfect for that!!! plus my guy looks so adorable in his bow ties :)

    40. avatar Jessica reply

      I just liked your facebook page! I already love your magazine too! I like to accessorize with pearls for a classic look or for a fun look with a flower headband and cute wedges!

    41. avatar Stefanie R. reply

      I “liked” you. I think the best way to accessorize is with a nice shawl. I have a champagne colored one that goes with just about everything and keeps me warm during those chilly evening receptions.

    42. avatar Kate reply

      I “liked” you on facebook! I think the best way to accessorize is with some beautiful pearls and a great pair of heels. Can’t go wrong with that!

    43. avatar Ashley reply

      I’ve “liked” you on facebook for a very long time! When attending a wedding, the dress is key. Something classy and cute that fits your personality.

    44. avatar Michelle reply

      I “liked” you guys on Facebook! I like wearing a muted solid color (black or navy, for example) with a pop of color in the shoes, clutch or flowery hair accessory! So fun!

    45. avatar megan reply

      i like you! i love to wear a colorful pashmina to weddings. it’s perfect to cover my shoulders during a church ceremony and handy to throw on when outside receptions turn a little chilly.

    46. avatar Jennifer reply

      Of course I like y’all on Facebook! I think a fancy pair of shoes is an accessory in itself! Bring along an equally fabulous clutch, and you’re set to go. Not to mention the proper jewels…. Either an amazing pair of earrings and a collection of bracelets or a chunky necklace with dainty stud earrings…pearls, maybe?

    47. avatar Sarah Torrens reply

      I love Southern Weddings!
      As a guest at a wedding, I usually wear a simple solid-color dress, but accessorize it with a chunky, interesting necklace or chandelier earrings!

    48. avatar Margaret Campbell reply

      If there was a “love” button on facebook, I would use it for y’all! As it is, I suppose I can settle for a simple “like.” Honestly, my favorite wedding accesory is a hefty champagne cocktail. But if we’re sticking to outfits, my fave accessory is my pearl studs or some gorgeous pumps. Keep it simple, keep it classy!

    49. avatar Joanie Oben reply

      I liked y’all. Hope I win!

      I’m actually going to a wedding tomorrow. I love to punch it up with bright colors in the summertime.

    50. avatar Amanda reply

      I like southern brides! and I liked you on fcbk! ;0) When I attend a wedding I first try and find out what the bridal party is wearing. I try not to match and clash at the same time. I looooove bangles and long dangling earings. It depends on the type of wedding but for my friends intimate backyard get together, I was able to wear a casual sundress, flip flops and dressed it all up with beautiful gold leaf earings and gold bangles.

    51. avatar Caitlin reply

      I “like” you a lot! (Even on facebook!) Love this giveaway! My wedding guest accessories usually consist of jumbo sized pearls, a hair flower clip or headband, a cute clutch bag (like the one in this giveaway – wink, wink), and naturally, some fabulous heels (you have to make your calves look ahhmazing)!

      I LOVE you guys! and I am dying to get ahold of this specific tie and clutch pair. I love to match us like southern beau and belle style. Because he calls me Belle. We are what I call country chic. Which is a classy look on a simply style. He is the most adorable thing in his suspenders and I like to get him and I tiny matching things to tie us together. I love to play up the fact that he is a southern doctor and he likes the way I make a throwback look for us when we go out to the theatre to see gone with the wind or at the wedding last month with a vest that was black and pink pinstripes and I wore pink heels and a clutch to match him. oooohhhh I hope I win!!!!!

    59. avatar Joy Gay reply

      I “LOVE” you guys on fb. I am dying to get my little mittens on this adorable pair. My best accesory is my sweet sugarbear! I love that he embraces that whole southern doctor thing and lets me get him in suspenders to take me out. We just did a wedding and he had a black/pink pinstripe vest and I wore heels and clutch to match. We almost stole the show, hahaha

      I like Southern Weddings on Facebook! This pair of accessories looks like they would be really fun to wear! Usually, I like to wear a pretty hair clip or flower in my hair along with a nice clutch and some interesting shoes!

      I “liked” y’all on Facebook! (And in real life too!) When attending a wedding, I like to accessorize usually with one bold statement piece, ie. a chunky costume jewelry type bracelet or huge dangly earrings or a cute belt. After I choose one bold piece, I add small details in fill the outfit out, such as tiny pearl earrings or a silver ring. I think this keeps the look fresh, classy, and doesn’t attempt to outdo the bride!
