Southern Belle

  • Jul 23, 2018

Well, we do declare. Magazine Monday never looked so good. Here’s a closer look at this stunning editorial from our 2018 glossy pages (and cover!). 

It’s love, y’all.

This Southern-inspired editorial is overflowing with warmth and wonder — perfect for the bride who craves both uptown elegance and small town charm. So make yourself at home, darlin’ (preferably on a vintage pink sofa). We reckon the details are divine and the love is fine.

Below are a few of our favorite details from the inspiration by Sage & Thistle Events. Read through them and then scroll through the perfect images by Brooke Bakken Photography.

I LOVE YOU A BUSHEL AND A PECK. (You bet your pretty neck I do.) This color palette by event designer Sage & Thistle Events is perfectly on point with its mix of bold and bashful shades. (By the way, the beyond perfect petals were created by THE Bushel & A Peck Floral.) And pink sofas for the win! We adore the lounge goddess from Refined Vintage Events.

MARRY MAIDENS In the South, wedding parties get their due. The maids are many, the gowns are glorious, and the flower girls are cute as a bug. Take a cue from the Southern Belles and give your best girls the best treatment. How gorgeous are the cranberry gowns from Bridal Closet? Pro tip! If your wedding is on the formal side, opt for full-length frocks for your bridesmaids.

FLOWERS FOREVER There is nothing more fetching than endless flowers at weddings. We are dying over the raised centerpieces by Bushel & A Peck Floral, which bring the perfect amount of drama to the charming tablescape by Sage & Thistle Events. Add that to the floral tie-in on the paper details from Eccentricity, and we are in petal heaven.

BELLE + BEAU OF THE BALL As we live and breathe, we’ll never get over the classic romance of a full and fabulous gown — like this stunner from Gateway Bridal. And when it’s paired with that navy tux from DC Tuxedos? Bless. Our. HEARTS.

PRETTY AS A PICTURE Crisp, airy and effervescent — these incredible images from Brooke Bakken Photography are both timeless and on trend (our forever favorite combination). And we’re swept away by this romantic and elegant French knot styled by Suggestions Salon.

BRIDE’S BEST FRIEND Include your pets in your big day. Bonus points if they smile for the camera! And speaking of best friends, this hexagon sparkler from Sierra-West Jewelers is ready for some girl talk.

HI, SUGAR A Southern wedding wouldn’t be complete without the sweetest of touches — like this decadent fondant masterpiece by Carrie’s Cakes. And who doesn’t want a little comfort food? The biscuits, jam, honey, and pork chops by Magleby’s Grill are love on a plate.

GOING TO THE CHAPEL Sage & Thistle Events built these church windows for a one-of-a-kind backdrop. It’s a showstopper piece, to be sure, enhanced by its striking simplicity. To top it all off, Bushel & A Peck Floral decorated the windows with delightful vines and blooms.

SWOON VOYAGE! After the wedding, what could be better than departing in a 1964 Princess Ivy — one of only 340 of its kind on the road today — from Something Vintage Something Blue. Leave them breathless.
