Happy 10th Anniversary Southern Weddings! My 10 Favorite Editorials

Oh happy day, y’all! Today is launch day for tenth anniversary issue of Southern Weddings magazine! If you’ve been reading my blog for a minute, you know that this publication is dear to my heart. Their beautiful blog, Pinterest boards, and previously-launched magazines were the only resource I turned to for my own wedding inspiration. They are a sweet team filled with heart and southern charm based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

This issue is especially dear to me because I was invited to contribute earlier this year! On page 210, among dear ladies who I admire, I shared a snippet about family traditions Dillon and I have carried into our marriage. YAY! I will share a picture of that snippet soon, but in the meantime I am toasting the Southern Weddings family (with sweet tea, of course!) by sharing ten of my favorite editorials – in no particular order – published through the years. Enjoy!

Deep in the Heart of Texas (V6 – 2013)

The navy dresses, classic white florals, and wide open field are so delightfully Texas! This editorial inspired my very own bridesmaids dresses, and with the help of my sweet friends we were able to match a few of the dresses exactly! View the original post here.

Hearth and Hand Collection at Target

Yesterday marked the coming together of my favorite store with one of my favorite brands. Y’all, Joanna Gaines partnered with Target to launch the Hearth and Hand collection. It is an understatement to say that Target/Magnolia/Joanna Gaines fans everywhere are rejoicing. I have not yet made it out to see the products in person because we had a full schedule yesterday. So in the meantime, I’ve had a great time perusing the collection online and gathering my favorites!

My decorating style has shifted from rustic to a more polished, classic look over the past few years. Even so, I am swooning over the Hearth and Hand collection! Joanna Gaines has such a gift for bringing a feminine touch to hearty design elements. Her collection combines pastoral textiles with tough metals, rustic wood, creamy ceramic, and the perfect holiday hue of green. The products are perfect for stocking up on household basics and getting a head start on Christmas gifts! Click here or on any of the pictures below to shop the collection!
