Today is a big day for us, y’all. We’ve got our pearls on, our hair blown out and our fluffy dresses donned. We’ve powered through our to-do lists, answered emails and waited for 2:00 to roll around. Why are we so antsy? We’ve been invited to tea at the Carolina Inn!

At least that’s what Emily thinks.

We may have told a white lie a couple of weeks ago when I casually said to the team, “Hey, y’all. Heidi at the Carolina Inn invited us to an afternoon tea in August.” What I really meant was that we’ve been planning a bridal shower for Miss Emily Ayer for over a month and we had to find some casual way to get to her the Carolina Inn!

We’ve enlisted the help of Heidi, the Inn’s director of Catering, Erin McLean, a fab events planner in our area, Amber Housley, a sweet-as-pie designer, and Cyn Kain, one of our good friends and photographers to make Emily’s Mini Cupcakes and Tea Party a reality. (Y’all should have seen the menus and inspiration boards we’ve been emailing each other – I about died with excitement!)

Amber did an amazing job creating Emily’s mini tea party invitations and we can’t wait to show her the rest. In fact, we’re heading to the Inn right now to surprise her! Stay tuned for more fun details and a recap of Emily’s bridal shower!

July: the month of farmer’s markets, ice cream and vacation time — at least in the Southern Weddings office! Take a look at what the SW ladies have been up to this past month, in and out of the office.

1. Marissa’s favorite shirt. She got it last summer from a little boutique in Franklin, Tennessee, and all the proceeds went to help victims of the Southern tornadoes.

2. I picked up some peaches, green tomatoes and figs at the farmer’s market. The bright colors, wonderful smells and yummy samples made it hard to leave the place!

3. Ice cream and matching Jack Rogers with Marissa + Kristin!

4. A shot of Emily + John’s wedding chapel (She visited in July for a meeting with her chapel coordinator!)

5. The Krispy Kreme burger at a restaurant Marissa and her friends ate at. Sadly, no, she didn’t try it. (I vote this for our next office field trip.)

6. Emily and I indulged in red velvet ice cream in the office while we planned our July photo shoots.

7. While at Hilton Head, I made a stop into the nearby Piggly Wiggly!

8. Marissa snapped a photo of these geese who literally made her stop in the middle of heavy traffic and then took their time crossing the road!

9. Lara made sweet tea popsicles for our shoot last week — they looked delicious!

10. Lara brought home a pile of treasures at the farmer’s market.

11. Emily baked up some mini peach raspberry pies. Don’t they look adorable? She adapted the recipe from the full-size peach pie recipe in Joy of Cooking, in case you’re wondering :)

12. Intern Emily Alice and I shared a birthday last week! Lara and Emily surprised us with a trip to Maple View Farm for ice cream and cow sightings.

13. Baby Gracie ate a Georgia peach!

14. A lovely shot of the corn fields from Emily’s drive in the country.

15. I took a Fourth of July trip to the Outer Banks.

16. I also brought the SW gals some sweet tea and red velvet ice cream! It’s made just a couple of hours south of us in Mooresville!

17. ME and Lara with Miss Georgia at our shoot last week.

18. Emily’s desk upon her return to the South from New England, complete with a “welcome back” banner.

How was your July? What were the highlights of your month?

See what happened in June and May.

Hi y’all! I had to hack into our regular posting schedule to write this little surprise note about a very special belle in our office. The soon-to-be Mrs. Emily A Thomas has been with us here at Southern Weddings for three years today. And, oh, what a beautiful three years it has been! Don’t let her “Creative Director” title fool you as she has done every job under the sun in our tiny little company to make us soar. From crafting the perfect words to hauling buckets and buckets of flowers and linens to shoots to dreaming up the prettiness you see here every day and in print to caring deeply for our vendors and brides to hunting for the best content in the South to baking us cupcakes (the woman can bake y’all!), Emily is a one-of-a-kind gal with a very big heart.

Truly, I don’t know where we’d be without her.  She has changed everything and continues to push us to grow and stay rooted in what matters most.  So, I had to take a moment to invite you all to celebrate her with me.  She makes our world a happier, prettier more inspiring place… a place where magnolias, banjos, biscuits and family shine bright.  Happy three year Southern Weddings anniversary and thank you from ALL of us!  Love, Lara
