    I am currently living in Chicago where everything is so fast paced.  A lot of my family is still down south and it makes me miss the calmness that comes with the South.  Not only the scenery but the people as well.  Everyone is polite and generous, not something we get up here in Chicago.  This cover reminds me of the polite people and way of life that the South offers.

    i love everything about the South and would love to have a Southern Wedding. My dream is to live in the south and have a beautiful home, that would be after having a beautifu;l southern weeding on the banks of the Mississippi or the the backyard of a beautiful Southern Victorian home.

    Why I love Southern Weddings is right on the cover: Classic Style. Always a great combination of traditional but modern while maintaining timeless beauty.

    I love Southern Weddings! They have the best ideas from actual brides. I relocated to North Carolina from Illinois 4 years ago and couldn’t imagine having my wedding anywhere but the south!
