Tay and Co: January 2015

Southern Weddings Magazine

Wedding magazines are one of the best parts about getting engaged because it's literally a whole new world of inspiration! One of my absolute favorites is the Southern Weddings magazine!

Although I'm not from the South, this magazine is exactly my style. The monograms, colors and prep all scream Taylor.. just in a wedding version. I actually stumbled upon their website before I picked up a copy. One of my favorite pages on their website was the "Engaged" tab. It takes you to so many great posts from budgeting to maid of honor duties.

They also give you an option to become a Bride Blogger! I am so excited to be part of this group and follow other women planning weddings around the same time. It's also fun to see Tay & Co featured under the June 2016 weddings!

Definitely check it out if you are looking for some preppy wedding inspiration! 


Since this will mainly be a blog focused on wedding planning, I figured the perfect place to start was where it all began...our engagement!

Jonathan and I met our sophomore year of college and we were both involved in Greek Life. So when we happened to be in the same science lab class I asked him to be my partner since I had seen him at Greek events. And the rest was history! 

Junior year I became sweetheart of his fraternity and was lavaliered! Lavaliering in Greek Life is when you receive your boyfriend's fraternity letters on a necklace. It basically means you are in a pretty serious relationship if they give you their letters! 

Finally our senior year we graduated together from the College of Business this past May. Jonathan traveled for the next few weeks after graduation and got back to the states a few days before my 22nd Birthday. Since it was my birthday weekend, he planned a really nice dinner for us. At the end of the night he wanted to take a walk to our "spot." At school there was a little riverwalk where I was lavaliered, and we called it our spot. We used to go there a lot in college. So, after dinner we got to our spot and he proposed in the exact same place I was lavaliered! 

Right after he proposed! (you can tell I was crying) 

I loved how thoughtful the whole proposal was! He even quoted One Tree Hill, the episode that Lucas picks Peyton, "When all my dreams come true the one I want next to me is you." We took some pictures the day after so you could see where he proposed! 

It was definitely exciting to call our family and friends, everyone was so supportive and excited! I can't wait to really dig into the wedding planning. I know it will be so much fun! 

Hope everyone is having a great week!
