At my Papaw’s funeral I listened as a woman congratulated Mamaw on nearly sixty-years of marriage. She turned to the woman and said, “It wasn’t enough”. 

Years later as we laid her to rest beside him, I was overwhelmed by the legacy they created in the now 21 lives of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, along with our many spouses and significant others; their marriage a prominent piece of each of our hearts.

To me, my marriage is place of rest and restoration. It is my safe place and comfort. We go out into the world and are exhausted by it’s demands, but our marriage provides the place we get to come back to at the end of the day.

Featuring inspiring imagery along with stories of legacy and love, The Southeastern Bride is designed to be simple, intentional, and encouraging. Yes, we a “perfect feed”, but between you and me, that is just a way of drawing people into something with a lot of heart behind it. 

That joy is what I hope to share with brides-to-be. I am so grateful you are here!
