Google+ Sponsor Love, Part VII - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Who’s ready for spring?  Only twenty more days!  In the meantime, we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to a few of our newest sponsors.  We couldn’t do what we do without them, and even more than that, we really believe in their work and want to share it with you.  We hope you’ll take a moment to visit their sites, say hello, and send them a little SW love!

One of my favorite things about the Florida husband and wife team behind Astrid & Rene Fine Art Photography is that they really care about who they associate with.  One of the first things they asked Katharine, who handles all of our advertising, was whether we “screened” our advertisers — they wanted to be a part of a handpicked community, not just another name in our sidebar.  Luckily for both of us, we do, and they are!  And on top of that, they’re artistic and passionate, trained in both photojournalistic and traditional photography styles, and experts at delivering “service that will make you feel giddy!”  You can visit their site here.

One of the questions on Aesthetic Floral’s website is “Are you ready to dream the unimaginable?”  I love that!  Aesthetic’s two principal designers truly can bring your dreams to life, and they have the personalities to prove it: one is a San Francisco native with a modern, minimalist approach to design, and the other is a true Southern belle with a flair for glamour and high luxury.  Aesthetic Floral and Event Artistry is based in Atlanta but happy to travel.  You can visit their site right here and their galleries here.

Besides being impressively talented photographers, the team behind David Murray Weddings is one of the nicest you’ll ever meet.  Their style is classic and timeless, with all the spontaneous goodness of the photojournalistic wave.  And their black and white images are divine!  Bonus!  David Murray Weddings isn’t just for Southern brides and grooms: they shoot in Atlanta, Boston, and Kennebunkport regularly, and are happy to travel to wherever else your wedding might be taking place.  You can visit their site here and their blog here!

For a crafty gal like myself, Origin Crafts is about as good as it gets.  They stock everything needed to detail your wedding ceremony or reception, from apothecary jars to woven ottomans to a huge selection of paper lanterns and string lights.  I particularly like that you can search for items by theme, including “Beach,” “French Country,” and “Tuscan.”  Visit their site here!

When you’re in the market for a photographer, it’s important to remember that you’re not just hiring talent, you’re hiring a team who’s going to be with you throughout your wedding day.  I know I would want someone sweet and funny, but at the same time super organized and on top of the goings-on. Beach Bum Photography is all that and a bag of chips.  Husband and wife team Jessica and David are based in Florida and specialize in fun, colorful images.  Visit their site here!

Hope you’re having a fabulous Tuesday, y’all, and we promise real weddings will be back tomorrow!
