Best Southern Wedding Vendors

by in Main on

We’re just smitten with our new Blue Ribbon Vendors and we can’t wait for y’all to meet them! I couldn’t agree more with Em’s advice on how to find the best wedding vendors. I know I’m a bit partial, but I think our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory is the first place to look because it’s overflowing with the best talent in Dixie. Each one of these vendors is hand-picked, and I’m confident working with whichever one you choose would be a joy. Get to know the newest ladies and gents through some of our favorite interview questions, then click through to their listings to find out more!

Favorite thing about weddings in the South? I love the natural beauty of the South. It provides decor that you just can’t get anywhere else. It’s charming and magical at the same time.

Where you call home: Fellsmere, Florida
Favorite part of a wedding day? My favorite moment of a wedding day is the first moment the bride and groom get to be alone together, usually right after the first look or right after the ceremony. I like to sneak around the corner and film because it truly is, in my mind, the purest, most uninhibited moment of the day.

Full Name: Rach Loves Troy Photo + Cinema
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Savannah,GA > Louisville, KY
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Don’t choose your vendors based on availability, budget, or because someone told you so. You need to find people who you connect with, who get your vision for your day, and will invest in your relationship.

Full Name: Sunshower Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Charlotte, NC
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Weddings in the South just seem to celebrate heritage more than any other place on Earth! I love how proud my brides and grooms are to celebrate their college team, their favorite BBQ, or even just their family name!

Full Name: Untamed Heart Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: The rolling hills of the Midwest.
Favorite part of a wedding day? When the bride and groom walk up the aisle hand in hand as a freshly married couple. There is so much joy in that moment from everyone. It just blesses my heart to witness it every time!

House parties, burying the bourbon and cake pulls, oh my! Meet the newest addition to the Southern Weddings Shop: All About Southern Wedding Traditions. The whole office is awfully proud of our new e-book library. Why? Because we are big believers in pretty AND practical and our new e-books are the best of both worlds!

There’s something magical about Southern culture that seems to be magnified when digging into the wedding planning process. Outdoor weddings and receptions are common place and keeping away the rain is paramount: enter burying the bourbon. Whether you were born and raised in the South, moved here as fast as you could, or are simply looking to add a dose of Southern charm to your wedding day, our guide to Southern wedding traditions has you covered!

In this 19-page digital download, we walk you through the six most beloved Southern wedding traditions and offer up ways to personalize six classic wedding traditions. We’ll tell you when, where, why, and how to include each in your celebration!

We believe that your wedding day should be a reflection of your very personal love story. We also believe in the power of weaving sweet details (the more Southern the better) into your big day. Educate yourself and figure out which of our favorite traditions will work for you: All About Southern Wedding Traditions e-book!

P.S. Curious about the overlap of our e-book library and the Joyful Wedding Planner? Our e-books can be used alongside our planner (since we go into more detail on each topic than we were able to in the planner) or in tandem with another planner. We’ve heard from so many brides who were sad to have purchased another planner before finding ours, so this is a way that all of y’all can still get our perspective on individual topics without purchasing a second planner! Our e-books also make a great surcee for the brides in your life!

    Hello. My name is lorie gregg and I sell a beautiful line of jewelry designed in NY called Chloe and Isabel. I would LOVE to provide jewelry for this shoot if you are in need. Check out the site mentioned above and let me know. I’ve worked several bridal shows in the past and the majority of my retail experience prior to my 3 years with chloe and isabel was with anthropologie in Southern California. Thanks so much!
