Southern Weddings V8!


Better late than never on today’s post–it has been a crazy week, and for the best reason! Southern Weddings V8 launched TODAY!!


This is so much more than a magazine to me and the girls I work with–it’s our hearts on paper, our memories of the past year recorded, and so many dreams come true. We literally work on this magazine every day for almost a year, and it’s truly incredible to know that it’s now finally in the hands of hundreds of people, hopefully inspiring them in ways that they never imagined a wedding magazine could. I have never been more proud of something I’ve worked on, and I know the girls I work with could say the same!

I’m also so overjoyed and honored that mine and Dave’s wedding is featured in this issue! I’ve dreamed of my future wedding being in these pages since long before I worked at Southern Weddings, and I burst into tears the first time I saw the layout. I tried to stay out of the design and text as much as I could so that I would be a little bit surprised, and my dear coworkers (and friends!), Emily and Nicole, made me feel so special through the way they created the feature. It’s on page 186, so be sure to take a peek! :)

Southern Weddings is available online at SouthernWeddingsShop.com (be sure to take advantage of the gift wrap option if you’re sending a copy to an engaged friend!), as well as on news stands all across the Southeast–Target, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Walgreens, Harris Teeter, and more. Share a photo of your copy on Instagram with the hashtag #SouthernWeddingsV8 so we can celebrate with you!
