Tag: fifth anniversary issue

When we announced our V5 Photo Contest, we had no idea just how stinkin’ cute our readers are! Now we do, and let me tell you, y’all are cuter than a little red wagon full of speckled pups! Let’s recap: super cute kiddos, a sweet nana (who appears on page 54 of this issue!), a loving hubby and adorable pups? Check! Our big ol’ Southern Weddings V5 photo contest finalists are some kind of adorable. So adorable, in fact, that we need your help choosing a winner!

A little more background, just for fun: Peyton (the blond) gifted her recently-engaged best friend Melissa with her own copy of SW. You may recognize Marissa as a model from two of our past photo shoots (she’s showing off more of her posing skills above). That adorable golden puppy was involved in the proposal for Amanda, Julianne’s friend (with a copy of SW being the next logical step). Stephanie said, and I quote, “hubby literally took it off my lap.” Love that!

Help us find a winner! Vote by leaving a comment below with your favorite’s name! The winner will receive an adorable Emily Ley iPhone case!

Voting will end on Friday, February 1, so get your votes in quick! One vote per person, please!

It’s a bit cloudy around these parts today, so our Freshly Squeezed feature almost looks too good to be true! Y’all know we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to capture this bright and juicy shoot with a fun behind-the-scenes film from Cabana Pictures! After all, this shoot was bursting at the seams with citrus-y details and we loved see our friends who pulled it all together working their magic.

Eek!! Doesn’t it look amazing? Our models are way too cute for words.

Once we started getting props in the office for this shoot, we knew we had to find a way to share even more of it with y’all. I mean, constant squealing over our colorful props warrants a giveaway, doesn’t it?

We can’t wait to find new homes for these Freshly Squeezed items! The Tear Drop earrings from Pink Pineapple, the Fleur Drop earrings form Bridier Baubles and the aptly named Sunny Days bracelet from Francesca’s were among our favorites from V5.

To Enter: Leave a comment below telling us what you love about this feature and which of the pieces above is your favorite.

Win: Four winners will win the jewelry piece of your choosing!

Good luck, y’all!

    I love all the Freshly Squeezed items! They are a great way to add a pop of color towinter wardrobe colors, even winter whites!

    The teardrop earrings are my favorite :)

  2. avatar Whitney Evans reply

    The colors are amazing! I would love to win the yellow earrings.

  3. avatar Madelynne Moulton reply

    THAT JUICE BAR! It won me over in a heartbeat. This is the most energetic shoot I have EVER seen from y’all! I am loving the pink tear drop earrings!

  4. avatar Laura reply

    My favorite part of V5 is the “What I Love About the South” section. Reading all of the comments reminded me of how blessed I am to live here and why I would never want to move away! And I love those teardrop earrings, it would add a great splash of color to any outfit.

  5. avatar Robyn H. reply

    So far, this is one of my favorite shoots (honestly they’re all gorgeous) from V5. I love everything citrus and vibrant colors. The images are a huge reminder of hot summers in the South. The hot pink tear drop earrings from Pink Pineapple would be the best accessory for a simple sun dress. Besides all of the great colors, who wouldn’t fall in love with that showstopping striped Vera Wang Dress!

  6. avatar Lindy reply

    Such cheery and happy colors!!! Love everything but especially the pink tear drop earrings!

  7. avatar Larissa reply

  17. avatar Jessica Clinch reply

    This is hands down one of my favorite editorials that y’all have ever produced! My favorite aspect of this feature is how all of the citrus details tie together. I immediately loved the fun citrus escort cards and pom-pom garland that hung above the juice stand. Then, when I watched this video I noticed that even the forks were dipped in pink and orange paint to tie everything together- they were such a nice touch! I would absolutely love to add those fleur drop earrings from Bridier Baubles to my jewelry collection :)

  18. avatar Courtney Wyse reply

    Love the pops of color! Especially that amazing pink!

  19. avatar Lindsey reply

    I love all of the flowers! Especially the peonies! My favorite piece is the bracelet!

  24. avatar Jordan reply

    I love the model-groom’s coral and orange suit! Bright colors are the bomb, but nothing new for us girls. It’s AWESOME to see the groom dressed in something so bold! I am head over heels for those yellow teardrop earrings!

  29. avatar Sondra reply

    I have loved citrus colors for quite some time now and think they are a great fit for parties (and weddings :) hehe). I also love pairing some blues and blue/greens with the citrus colors, so the moment I saw the bridesmaids dresses I knew that was by favorite part. All of those outfits are so fun and something I would wear anytime. The tear drop earrings are my favorite and I would wear either color!

  30. avatar Valerie reply

    I love all of the bright colors! (Makes me wish I was doing a summer wedding.) Definitely why the pink earrings are my fav of the batch!

  31. avatar Emily reply

    Loved so many aspects of this shoot, and how all the vibrant colors & patterns worked together, so much fun! My favorite piece is the yellow pineapple drop earrings, my favorite color is yellow, and these would be stunning for my 11/09/13 I Do’s :):)

  32. avatar Ashleigh reply

    Those pink tear drop earrings are a-dor-able! Could definitely put those to use at some of my showers + engagement parties that are coming up!

  38. avatar Carly Totten reply

    “Freshly Squeezed” is one of my favorite V5 features. I love all of the bright colors, especially because I am a forever fan of pink. I love that y’all took the bright pink route and paired the patterns with pops of oranges and yellows. Using fruit as part of floral arrangements is one of my favorite new trends, and I would like to hang Kristy Rice’s gorgeous backdrop in my house. : ) The Sunny Days bracelet is my favorite piece!

  39. avatar Amanda reply

    This citrus inspired photo shoot is fabulous! My wedding colors are coral and yellow, so I really love all of the ideas I can take from this! The popsicle things look so yummy too!! I love the tear drop earrings!

  40. avatar Ke reply

    I love the whimsical sweets table and the eclectic, vibrant bridesmaids dresses. The groom’s colors are so joyful. Because all the surroundings are shouting with color, it makes the bride stand out even more in her pure white dress. Simply gorgeous! I wish to win the pink teardrop earrings.

  41. avatar Anna A. reply

    Love love the colors! The teardrop earrings are my favorite piece!

    Ps- I’m reading my V5 issue slowly..slooowly as not to finish it :)

  45. avatar Laura reply

    Honestly, LOVE Lilly (who doesn’t) and this photo shoot looks so great, so perfectly preppy! I actually designed a “Spring Fling in Cabo” themed bridal shower that dealt in the same palette! Obsessed! Well done.

Y’all should see our office right now! We’re swimming in post office receipts (more on that tomorrow) and squealing over our newest cover every time we see it. Even better, today we’re busting out the glitter to prepare for our big V5 Launch Party tomorrow! We are so excited to head over to the Carolina Inn to see everyone. The party is SOLD OUT, but see details below on how you can join us virtually!

We want to take another moment to thank everyone who is helping to make this party as amazing as we imagined! The Carolina Inn is graciously hosting us and creating a menu that is to die for. Rebecca from Millie Holloman Photography and The Cheese Photo Booth will be on hand to capture all of the fun moments, Callie’s Biscuits, J and R Foods and Ambrosia Cake Creations will be providing some yummy eats and Momental Designs, For Your Party, I Do Linens, Expressions of Love Florist, Fine & Dandy Party Shop, Floral Cotton, Stephanie Creekmur and A&P Designs are contributing some gorgeous details. Additionally, we’re so happy to have our friends the Bloomsbury Boys playing for us as well as some games from SC Cornhole.

With that lineup, can’t you tell we’re excited? We can’t wait to see everyone’s smiling faces and their gold and glittery best! (Don’t have anything gold or glitter? That’s okay — come in your best cocktail attire!)

Just as a reminder, the party is SOLD OUT. We’re over capacity at the Carolina Inn, simply due to space limitations, but feel free to add yourself to the wait list on our Eventbrite page in case we have a ticket available for you later. PLEASE NOTE: You will need a printed ticket to be admitted to the party. Please print your ticket or bring a digital version on your mobile device! Parking? Head to the Inn’s valet stand or park right across the street from the Inn in the Nash lot.

JOIN US FROM YOUR COMPUTER! We’ll be live-streaming the event from our Ustream channel! Tune in here on Thursday to see what we’re up to.

See y’all tomorrow!
