Introducing the V7 Cover!!

by in In The Office, News on

Friends! It is with the fullest heart and incredible joy that we introduce to you… the Southern Weddings V7 cover!!!

She charms the dew right off the honeysuckle, doesn’t she??

As we put together this issue, we kept circling back to a few central ideas. We wanted to celebrate the community that surrounds a bride on the way to her wedding day. We wanted to honor best friends, who do so much to get us down the aisle. And we wanted to empower our couples to be confident as they make decisions throughout their engagement, secure in the knowledge that their wedding is only the beginning, and that they can write the story of their life together, no matter what has come before.

Speaking of writing your own story… we couldn’t be more tickled pink about the fact that our cover photographer, Tec Petaja, was none other than the groom on our very first cover, V1!! Tec and his sweet wife Chelsea have always been an important part of the Southern Weddings family, and it’s so meaningful to us to be able to work with them on a cover. As many of you know, the SW story has added so many chapters since that first issue, and this feels like a beautiful full-circle moment.

We had the joy of working with many other talented folks to bring this image to life, including Rhiannon from Hey Gorgeous Events, who graced us with her floral and styling skills. Kate Bryan of The Small Things blog curled our gorgeous ladies’ locks while Makeup for Your Day gave them peachy cheeks and rosy lips. We couldn’t be more proud to have our bride in the dress of a Southern designer (Anne Barge!) or to shoot on location at one of our favorite places, Fearrington Village.

The results of the fun cover poll our newsletter subscribers took – if you’re not signed up yet, do so now!

And of course, one of the most exciting things about this cover is that it features one of our very own gals – yes, that’s Miss Lisa to the left of our bride!! You may recognize the face all the way to the left, as well – Whitney, recently married, was one of our famous bridesmaids for the polo shoot a few years back!

Though our official release day is Tuesday, if last year is any indication, V7 may be popping up on newsstands around the South as early as today–yeehaw!! Be sure to snap a pic of yourself with your copy and tag #SWV7 on instagram or Twitter – we LOVE seeing your smiling faces!! If you live outside the South, you can always find a copy in our store.

In the meantime, we’re DYING to know: What do y’all think??? Are you as much in love with V7′s cover as we are?

With each issue of Southern Weddings, our team make-up has changed just a bit (which is why we love reminiscing about our old friends!). We’ve been so very lucky to work with a variety of talented photographers for our team photos over the years, including Millie Holloman and Nancy Ray, and this year was no exception. We were thrilled to spend the day with Blue Ribbon Vendor Landon Jacob! They happily indulged our requests for multiple locations and outfit changes (you know how we roll), and though you’ve likely seen these gems on social media, we wanted to share a few more of our favorites with you today!

Before we even got out the door, though, Landon and Jordan captured a few snuggles with the youngest member of our team!

You know we love a good front porch, so a pretty one we had scouted near our office was our first stop.

This one’s kind of an outtake, due to my and Marissa’s awkward hug. She really loves me, I promise :)

While the rest of us caught our breath and changed outfits, Lara and Nicole headed to a local garden shop to take a few photos with some very special friends!

We knew corn was going to be a major part of this issue, so we decided to take our next set of photos in a beautiful nearby field. We happened to hit it at the perfect point in the growing season — isn’t that glossy green just gorgeous?

We borrowed gowns from some of our most fashionable friends for this portion of the shoot — Marissa is wearing “Bailey” in honeysuckle from Donna Morgan and Nicole is wearing “GA112C” in shell by Amsale.

Oh yes, these two were workin’ it with the hats! Kristin is wearing “JH5375” in blush by JLM Couture and Lara is wearing “G764C” in coral by Amsale.

Rounding things out, I am in “Genevieve” by Erin Fetherston and Lisa is wearing “JH5357” in blush and rose by JLM Couture.

Our third and final destination was Fearrington, one of our favorite local venues. We snapped just a few more photos (which turned out to be some of our favorites!) before heading into our summer team dinner.

Big hugs again to Landon Jacob — we couldn’t love these photos more!!

Landon Jacob is a delightful member of our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory!

    This collection of photos perfectly captures the Southern Weddings family! I absolutely love the variety with both everyday outfits and the gorgeous gowns – you ladies looked stunning. The locations are charming, too, especially the corn field. My favorite photos are the individual shots on the porch and the sweet moment captured of Lara and the chicken. Great job Landon and Jordan!
