Southern Weddings

Category:

Last summer Marissa and I did a fun in-person event where we got to debut the Joyful Wedding Planner to many new friends. Between the two of us, we convinced more than a few people who already had wedding planner binders to buy ours and switch – ha!

It’s wasn’t because we were trying to hustle our products (though we did have a friendly competition going with Jess and Emily), but because we truly believe in the power of the Joyful Wedding Planner (and the rest of our shop products). We created them from a place of purpose, with the hope that they’ll make the whole wedding and marriage planning process easier and more meaningful. (It doesn’t hurt that they’re extra pretty.)

Now for the exciting news — we’re looking for friends who believe in these products as much as we do. Could that be you? All the details are below:

For our first crop of Southern Weddings Affiliates, we are looking for folks who fit the following:

  • I have a passion for the wedding industry, marriage, or am a Southern Weddings product user.
  • I am a resident of the US or Canada.
  • I will commit to publishing Southern Weddings related product content at least six times annually.
  • I have an active and working website/blog centered on weddings, lifestyle, marriage, business, home, or a related topic.
  • My website/blog is regularly updated and has at least three months of content.
  • I have an audience reach of at least 5,000 (social media or blog followers, newsletter subscribers, monthly visitors, etc.)

Does that sound like you? Here’s how our program works!

Step 1. Join Our Team

Step 2. Share the #SouthernWeddings Love
If approved, you’ll have access to a library of graphics, banners, and links along with a monthly newsletter. Whether you add a banner to your site or feature a product in an upcoming social or blog post, you’ll have many options to share all your favorite Southern Weddings products.

      Me, too! I’m always telling people about the Joyful Wedding Planner, though, and won’t stop anytime soon! I’m adding the link to my “client sendoff” packages along with the link to the Welcome Home Guestbook because I loooove that idea.

Drumroll, please… After logging more than 50,000 votes from readers across Dixie and beyond, we are tickled pink to announce our 2017 Best of the South Wedding Award winners!

But first, a little history. You answered our call for the best and the brightest in the Southeast in a big way, nominating thousands of wedding vendors for our 21 categories.

Without further ado, we’re packing up the golden pineapple trophies (a.k.a The Pineys) to ship to our winners, spread across the Southeast in seven different states!

Pop the champagne and grab the biscuits, it’s time to meet our final batch of Best of the South Wedding Awards finalists!! Capturing your wedding day is a big job, but we know that this group is up for the challenge. Each one of these talented folks creates imagery that will be treasured for generations to come, an idea that just gives me giant chicken bumps.

The votes are pouring in — over 13,000 (!!!) and counting — which has the whole SW team high fiving and exchanging text messages full of confetti cannon emojis and celebratory gifs. Why? Because your enthusiasm for the Pineys is more than we could have ever imagined. We dreamed up this celebration of vendors in tandem with our tenth-anniversary issue because we wanted to honor the wedding community in the South that has bloomed over the last 10 years alongside us. We knew that our fellow Southern wedding vendors were some of the best in the world and y’all are proving us right! Keep the votes coming…

    I am obsessed with Pen Weddings ❤️ I follow them on YouTube, and Facebook and watch their videos as if they are going out of style.

  54. avatar Richie Stone reply

    I’ve known Daniel and Anna Shackleford for nearly a decade. Not only are they two of the most talented people with a camera, they are even better people! As a fellow working photographer/videographer they are always willing to speak freely about the business and ways to help their fellow photogs! That doesn’t happen very often!

  80. avatar Helen reply

    Wow Kristen Sweeting. SWEET photo!

  81. avatar JW reply

    What a gross concept, judging weddings. None of the pictures here are spontaneous. That are all staged by the photographer. Oh look at the loving embrace: no that we directed by the photographer. Couples wanting so desperately to by the subject of a romantic photo-documentary would be better served by enjoying the authentic moment.

    • avatar Emily reply

      Hi JW! No one here is judging weddings, people are casting their votes for wedding vendors! Very different. I also think to say that there is no genuine emotion here is extremely disrespectful to both the photographers and the couples themselves. I see tons of authentic joy and emotion when I look at these photos.
