on the cover of 'southern weddings' magazine!

While Tec and I are on our two-week sabbatical from all things work related, we've tried our darnedest to stay away from the computer, email, phone, bla-bla-bla.  But after receiving this email from Emily, we had to investigate further:

"oh my goodness...i just saw you and tec on the front of southern weddings...congrats!!! you guys look beautiful...how exciting for you both!"

What?!  After immediately getting in touch with her, she informed us that our ugly mugs were on the premiere magazine cover for Southern Weddings!  We'd been in contact with an editor at the magazine, but after submitting our interview responses, we hadn't heard what they would be used for... well, viola!  


According to the blog: "You will be able to find us in Hawaii, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, California, Iowa as well as all of the Southern states!"  So be sure to snatch up your copy of the magazine if you're lucky enough to find one on the book shelves.  And though the magazine won't be officially released until the 6th, apparently some retailers got a little slap-happy and have already put them out!  So, so fun...

When we're back in Nashville, I'll try to pick one up to share with y'all.  Let me know if you're able to get your grubby little hands on one! 

Much love, and a happy New Year!

Picked up a copy in Philly a last week and stumbled upon your blog today! Weird! Love the cover, love the wedding, you two are fabulously awesome! Thanks for the blog!

Congratulations!!! I bought the magazine (I just got engaged in December 2008 and I live in Orlando) and I love the cover and your shoes as well and would love to score a pair of those bad boys (could you send me the info?) That would be super gracious of you. I wanted to know that your wedding photos/story was inspiring to me and very cute/original. Really makes me want to try and make mine unique and special too. Thanks!

hey frances! my shoes were bought at a discount store for $14.99! they're dollhouse brand and i've scoured the internet to find them, but with no luck. but if you find them, let me know so that i can pass the info on to the other thirty brides who've inquired about them as well! ;) thanks for the sweet words and love!

all the best,
chelsea
