Southern Weddings

Tag: twitter

Gals, we have a big milestone to celebrate today: we’ve reached 20,000 Twitter followers!! For chatty ladies like us, that’s pretty exciting news. We love getting to know y’all through the daily interaction that Twitter provides, and we’re so happy to see that you enjoy our updates, too!

To celebrate, we thought we’d run a little Twitter giveaway, with five winners nabbing two copies of V4 each – one for her, and one for a friend! To enter, all you have to do is tweet at us and tell us why you love Southern Weddings. We started this party last week, and how-dee! Your answers were just too good not to share. A little round-up of our favorites:

Why yes, we are quite Southern! Some of our favorite Southern features include our Southern Delicacy column and our Southern Traditions column.

We believe that Southern style, grace, and hospitality should be spread far beyond the Mason-Dixon line. We love our Northern, Western, international readers, too!

We like to think we do. After all, every Southern lady knows that weddings are a whole lot more than a pile of details prettily arranged.

We sure do! The South is full of beautiful spots, and beautiful people, too! See a few of our recent favorites here and here :)

Want to get in on the tweeting fun? Just follow the Southern Weddings account here, then tweet us why YOU love Southern Weddings. While you’re at it, feel free to follow Lara, Emily, Nicole, Whitney, Sierra, and Marissa, too!

Social Southern Weddings

Hey, howdy, and happy Friday, y’all! We just wanted to take a sec to do a quick rundown of the spots where you can find Southern goodness besides this here blog. (Though we have lots of long-term readers, there are always new Southern brides coming up through the ranks!)

First, there’s Twitter. We have one main account (@iloveswmag), where we share recent blog posts, happenings in the office, behind-the-scenes deets on shoot days, industry discounts and sample sales, news about Southern friends and events, and much more. All the SW ladies have their own accounts, too. So if you like business + branding, follow Lara, or if paper pretties and mini food are more your thing, follow Emily! (Or both, of course!) Nicole’s here, Sierra’s here, Marissa’s here, and Whitney, of course, is here.

Next, there’s Facebook. You may all feel free to like us here :) We share much of the same insider news and details that we do on Twitter, but it’s fun to see the conversations develop on FB. Plus, we sometimes ask fun polls on our Facebook page, and love hearing what y’all have to say!

Lastly, there’s Pinterest! You can follow Southern Weddings here. We love to pin photos from blog and print features, and it’s great for y’all, too, because we sort photos into different, fun categories. So if you’re looking for sweet tea + other drinks, biscuits + other delectables, or bow ties + boutonnieres, we’ve got you covered. We also have boards for ceremonies, fashion + style, bouquets, sweets, Southern traditions… you name it. And of course, each color has its own board, too. Get pinning!

And while you’re there, feel free to follow each individual account, too: Lara, Emily, Marissa, Whitney, Sierra, and Nicole. (If you need a Pinterest invite, just let us know!)

And there you have it! Besides spreading Southern goodness far and wide, you know what we love most about these social media platforms? They help us get to know our lovely brides better! So join, like, tweet, and pin — we’ll be right there alongside you!

We would be remiss to end this week without publicly thanking the scores of friends and fans that have posted about the new issue on their blogs. First, though, I suppose we should apologize for jamming up the airwaves on Twitter. According to our good friend Nate

Nah, we won’t apologize — we’re too excited! Without further ado, a few of the lovelies who’ve given us a shout-out over the last week:

Our good buddy Jonathan Canlas made us blush.

We will forever be indebted to Brooke and the Curious + Company team for their work on the “Choose Your Own Southern Wedding” feature.

Kiley + Tim’s wedding by Paul Johnson was the last wedding we accepted for V3 and we’re so happy we did!

Jose, Jose, Jose… we can’t sing his praises highly enough.

Gina Zeidler wowed us with her Texas brunch cover concept.

And the Vue chicks cover entry was sweet as a peach. Make sure you check out Diva Productions’ video from their shoot day!

Sweet Southern gal Emily Ley was invaluable in helping us with some of the trickier graphic design elements.

Our girl Jen from Green Wedding Shoes came up with the most stunning concept for her “Southern by Design” shoot. We love you, Jen!

Her co-conspirators Carissa of JL Designs

and photographer Stephanie Williams also had lovely things to say.

The ladies of 100 Layer Cake wowed us with their Great Gatsby concept.

We tapped one of our favorite bloggers, Kathryn of Snippet & Ink, to contribute to our Southern honeymoon story.

Kelly Hornberger was one of our fabulous sponsors, and she’s giving away a few copies on her blog!

Jill Thomas was responsible for one of the most beautiful real weddings we featured, Ali + Matt.

Bow ties and gorgeous pocket squares, oh my! The Cordial Churchman made us swoon with thier dapper creations featured in V3.

Lauren, from Every Last Detail, gave us her Southern insight on page 10!

Kirstie lent us a few photographs for the groom’s gallery and blogger directory.

We were THRILLED to have the chance to feature an A Bryan Photo wedding…

…and the work of SW fave Calder Clark.

Kate Headley was the talent behind another one of our real weddings (and perhaps my personal favorite!).

Yet another real wedding was shot by Anne Marie Photography. We loved the bold yellows!

We were thrilled to feature menus from Minted in one of our editorial spreads. They do amazing work and are so easy to collaborate with!

Lauren Larsen came through in the clutch with the perfect imagery to pair with an article that was in dire need of some beautiful photos. Thank you, Lauren!!

We couldn’t have dreamed up a better end story than Ruth & Jerry. Thanks to Donnan Photo for sending the two lovebirds our way!

Amelia Lyon was behind the camera for a stunning editorial spread!

And So Happi Together was the genius behind the details of the same spread!

To round out the all-star team from Amelia’s shoot, we were thrilled to find this post from The Loveliest Day who did event design and styling!

Last but DEFINITELY not least, Joey + Jessica were the photo geniuses behind our beautiful cover. We love you guys!!!

Thank you, again, to all of these lovely friends! If you wrote a post about the new SW on your blog, share it with us in the comments and we’ll make sure to include you in this post or a future one!

Want your own copy of V3? WIN ONE here, or take a pic with V3 and win one here, or order here OR find it on newstands all over the US (heavy in the South of course, but we’re in every state somewhere!) at select Barnes and Noble, Borders, Piggly Wiggly (YEEHAW!!), Walmart, Target, and major retailers. We’re waiting on our complete store list to come in, so if you find your copy, tweet us where you found it or leave a comment here so we can let other folks know. Thank y’all again so much for the love!
