In honor of the SVV7 launch party tonight we have to post all about our love for Southern Weddings on the blog today!
Of course if you aren’t familiar with our love for SW, or what “SWV7” stands for then let me fill you in!
We have a long time love with Southern Weddings and their fabulous team. We love that we are a part of their Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory (you can find us HERE) and that this magazines soul purpose is to create a marriage more beautiful than your wedding. We love visiting SouthernWeddings.com to see their daily posts, and we love it when Christmas comes a little early each year as they release their latest volume (SWV1, SWV2, SWV3, SWV4, SWV5, SWV6 and the latest SWV7)!
You may know that last year Blair and I had the honor of modeling for the fabulous Stefanie Miles Events while the amazing Ryan Ray snapped away for their editorial for SWV6. You may also remember THIS POST where I found out we would be on the cover. What you may not know is that in the CLE office sits volumes 2-7 (If anyone reading this has volume 1 and wants to get ride of it, I will pay you since mine ended up in the trash years ago!) on our shelf as I have been a fan of this amazing publication long before I was a part of the BRV directory or on the cover to share my marriage. This is the reason I am so excited about V7!
I am so excited to share with you our very first ad in SW! Megan and Salvatore were married this past April in Houston and I adore their love story captured by Ashley Bosnick Photography! Their love is true and rooted in faith. It’s stronger than a southern oak and I am blessed to know them. I love that this couple represents the CLE mission to celebrate love and remains part of the CLE family! I also love that this precious couple is expecting their first little one early next year.
In addition to our ad on page 185 you might notice a little piece of advice on page 18 from yours truly. It was so fun sending in a piece of advice for a unique way to write your own love story!
Of course you might spot Blair and I a couple of places from last years cover and launch party (and you may find him one more place that I can’t wait to share with you soon if you have yet to find it)! I wish we were in North Carolina tonight to enjoy the V7 Launch Party as we enjoyed the V6 Launch Party (you can revisit our time in Chapel Hill for last years launch party HERE)! Have fun tonight everyone!
Above all I hope you pick up a copy (CLE 2015 brides you have something headed your way soon! wink* wink*) and soak in every page. I hope you cherish the articles about marriage and true love, and I hope you enjoy every detail of each love story printed on these pages. Lara, Emily, Nicole, Kristin. Marissa, Lisa and Morgan have each poured over and selected stories that are worth sharing. Each creative team involved has created their most true work and all of it should be enjoyed. The reason these magazine sit on our shelf are for a constant reminder for us to create our best work for our clients, plus they’re really pretty. 🙂
I hope you enjoy V7 and you love seeing CLE scattered throughout the pages of intention.
