The month of June has been jam-packed for us Southern Weddings ladies! And the Instagram app has made it even easier for us to share little snippets of the fun with all y’all! Here’s a little peek into what’s been going on behind the scenes, in and out of the SW office.

1. My handsome husband’s baseball team participated in the Rickwood Classic. Don’t tell that I was late, but I showed up in the 9th inning for a picture of BDK in his old-timey uniform then left!

2. Lara’s parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary! Aren’t they a gorgeous couple?

3. Nicole enjoyed the Women in Country Showcase at the Charlotte Music Awards.

4. Animal Rescue Day brought the sweetest faced pups to the ballpark, and the worst puppy fever to BDK and I.

5. Nicole discovered Sweet Tea Ice Cream!! It’s made in North Carolina, and definitely will become a new staple in our office!

6. My hubs, BDK (on the right), participated in an on-field skit! I laughed until my cheeks hurt – then I broke my toe at this same game!

7. Emily spotted this gorgeous gardenia on an evening walk. So lovely!

8. She also snapped a shot of this hot doggie relaxing in the shade at Tuckahoe Plantation during a V5 shoot. It was about 98 degrees that day – yeow!

9. Krispy Kremes make the perfect celebration treat for a great shoot! Don’t you agree?

10. Emily’s cryptic sketches from a a big V5 editorial planning meeting. Can you guess what kind of feature this will be? Don’t worry – neither can I! ; )

11. Lara’s sweet Grace laughing in her sleep. Let’s pause just for a sec! Can this doll-baby get any cuter? I think not!

12. The adorable Miss Nicole starting V5 layout and choosing image selections. Wait until y’all see what we’ve got in store!

13. A peek at Lara’s desk. Can you believe she painted that peaceful art in the background? What a talented lady!

14. Nicole went skydiving (AHHH! So not jealous!) then gorged on some delicious hushpuppies afterwards (so jealous!).

15. Just a few of the yummy chocolates we’ve been tasting for Taste TV. I know, it’s a tough job!

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

P.S. See what our May looked like here.

    Are y’all on Instagram? The Southern Weddings ladies are! We love how easy it makes sharing photos! Lately, we’ve been breaking out our phone to share everything from the cool packages we get in the mail to what we made for dinner. Here’s a little peek into what’s been going on behind the scenes with the Southern Weddings ladies, in and out of the office.

    1. Memorial Day makes us so grateful, especially Lara whose husband, father and grandfather all served our country.

    2. We finally got around to decorating our office with beautiful images from our past issues.

    3. Warmer weather meant the perfect conditions for Lara’s church to hold an outdoor service.

    4. I love my friends who sport vintage truckers hat from rural Kentucky to our rooftop brunch.

    5. Stacks and stacks of boxes came in full of V5 goodies!

    6. I brushed up on my cornhole game at a friend’s backyard graduation party.

    7. Emily’s wedding bracelet. “I found it in my Mom’s stash when I was home last week!”

    8. Emily donned her press pass as she headed into her third National Stationery Show! (She brought back tons of paper goodies, y’all.)

    9. We gushed over these sparklers that our reader models will be donning for some V5 shoots!

    10. Marissa was running late to a baseball game and rocked giant velcro rollers in the car. “I’m sure Southern girls understand the importance of big hair!”

    11. Marissa’s ring was at the jeweler because a diamond fell out, so she tried on her grandmother’s vintage for size. Um, we love it!

    12. The fair came to town and Marissa and a few of the baseball boys went to the petting zoo. “Don’t tell my husband I think the baby goats are adorable! He wants to buy one!!”

    We hope you had an great month, y’all! What were some of your highlights?

      Biggest highlight was having my wedding published on y’alls site! I also loved putting together some dining furniture with the hubs, spending money on the Webster Miami for Target line, going to Destin with some of my best buddies, visiting Corey’s best friend in Dallas (for a Dave Matthews concert), AND going to an M83 concert! Whew!

    Tis the season for bridal showers, so for the last few weeks, we’ve been dreaming up fabulous soirees for each other! No, we aren’t worrying about particulars like whether or not the guest of honor is not actually engaged (Whitney) or actually already married (Lara) – we’ll take any excuse to plan a party! This week, Lara has whipped together a nautical bridal shower for Emily, the only one of us who actually IS engaged!

    Well, Miss Ayer is getting married this year and, since this post is supposed to be her “dream” shower, dream I did!  This was easy as peach pie for me to dream up, y’all! 

    Emily loves the ocean.  Nautical theme at a stunning Southern harbor location!  Done!  Emily loves mini food.  Fly in the “Master of Mini Food”, Peter Callahan. Check!  Emily loves pretty paper.  Check!  And most of all, Emily loves her family, so my shower for her would be a family AND friends shower.  First, the ladies would gather for a delicious lunch of mini crab cakes, classic salmon with fresh greens and mini fish tacos.  Then, the gents would join after for a plethora of mini desserts on a sunset cruise!  Quite the shindig.  But, we’re dreaming right!?  The ideal location for said shindig would be either Charleston at the harbor or perhaps in Watercolor, Florida.  The Southern coastal possibilities are endless!  Now, does anyone want to chip in so we can really make this happen!? : )

    1. Knot bracelets from Etsy seller, Pardes, as favors for the ladies.  2. A gift for the bride to be!  A nautical necklace with her new last name initial.  3. Beautiful watercolor bunting invites via 100 Layer Cake.  4. Custom sea-inspired cookies from Glorious Treats.  5. Classic nautical decor via Martha6. A preppy pretty nautical tote from Ann Taylor for the bride-to-be!  7. A sunset cruise on a beautiful boat with blue pillows. Source unknown.  8.  Nautical knot lapel pins for the gents as they board the ship photographed by Stacey Kane via The Knot9. Blue stripe drink stirrers for lemonade on the boat created by Miss Emily herself  10. Mini fish tacos from Peter Callahan via Brides.
