our big day lives on.

So, I have to 'fess up. I've been holding something back from all of you...

{source}

I've been CHOMPING at the bit to share this fun news with you...

{cv} and I were thrilled to make a brief showing on the Southern Living homepage...

{source}

...but we were humbled {and honored} to appear on the pages of this year's edition 
of Southern Living Weddings!

{source}


I didn't have a digital copy of the other pages of the spread, 
so I took a few quick snapshots to share...



I think Gus is a little jealous he didn't sneak into our luggage for the big day...


Suffice it to say, we were incredibly and wonderfully blessed with the world's best vendors throughout our entire planning process. Over the next few weeks and months, I'll reveal bits and pieces about how we prepared for our big day. Don't worry, I'm not suddenly becoming a wedding blogger...but I will definitely be writing wedding-related posts every once in a while ;)


Though I may have hunted for most of the copies of SLW in Rhode Island, you should be able to find your own copy on newsstands until early April.

 If you can't wait for more pictures, make a visit to la petite coquin...she's done the sweetest feature on our wedding today! {Such an honor! Thank you SO much, Lena!}

 ...or hop over to see the Southern Living slideshow or the Martha Stewart slideshow!

{source}
As always, an ENDLESS thank you to Kate Headley for her amazing photographs {and her dear friendship}! None of this would have been possible without her.

Can't wait to share some fun details about this weekend tomorrow...
until then, enjoy a cozy Sunday, my dear followers! xoxo, {av}

psst...don't forget to enter my Minted.com giveaway if you haven't already! It'd be a shame 
for you to miss out on some lovely stationery...with your name all over it :)

  14. How neat! You're going to be giving me wedding ideas one day. :) It's all gorgeous. Thanks for the sweet comment. I actually clicked on your friends' blog with your wedding and my eyes widened. My name is Allison---and the last 3 guys I've dated have been named Chris. I had a really bad experience with one of them, and that's all what started up my moving and new job...new life everything. Look forward to reading more about you. New follower.
