As you may remember from Lara’s speech at the V6 launch party, one of the biggest reasons we love marriage is because strong marriages create strong families. Strong families create strong children, and that changes generations. When I read about Peggy’s favorite memory from her and Jim’s wedding day, over 30 years ago, I couldn’t help but think of that sentiment. One beautiful marriage can have such a ripple effect on the community around it, and I can only imagine that how many people Peggy and Jim have inspired!

Wedding date: September 1, 1974
Children? Two
When did you know he/she was the one? Peggy: I knew he was the one when I called him after midnight one night, asking him to come over and kill a “huge bug” in my apartment, and he came. Jim: When I had to choose either to stay in DC to continue the relationship or move back to Minnesota after law school, and I stayed.
What’s your favorite wedding memory? Peggy: Seeing how happy my parents looked dancing at our reception and hoping we would look as happy at our children’s weddings.
What’s the secret to your marriage? Being able to laugh with each other.
What’s your favorite thing to do together? Spending the day at the beach, reading and watching the ocean.
What’s your best marriage advice? Listen to the other person, communicate with each other, and recognize each other’s strengths.

Southern Weddings Weekly Round-Up

by in Main on

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, friends! We hope you are enjoying lots of quality family time and plenty of leftovers today–we certainly are! If you’re also taking advantage of this weekend’s sales and checking a few names off of your Christmas list, be sure to stop by the Southern Weddings Shop for 20% off of all prints, and free domestic shipping on everything–including V7, the new Southern Weddings Planner, and the Sweet Tees! It’s the perfect time to stock up on gifts for your favorite brides-to-be, and maybe pick up a few things for your newlywed home, too. All orders (except for orders including the Planner, which is a preorder for a little while longer) will ship and emails will be returned on Monday when we are back in the office!

    It’s really a joy to get to introduce y’all to a new set of Blue Ribbon Vendors each month, because I just know any one of them would be a joy to you if you choose to work together! This time around, we’re introducing you to a few of them through their answers to some of our favorite BRV interview questions. Click through to their listings to find out more about them!

    Name: Amanda Day Rose Paperie
    Where you call home: Richmond, Virginia
    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Southern weddings are so rich with family, friendship, Southern culture, and memories. I love how I can see a little piece of my own family background and culture in each and every Southern wedding I’ve worked on.

    Name: Candace Nelson Photography
    Where you call home: Troy, Alabama
    Early bird or night owl? I guess I have to say early bird. I get up almost every morning at 4:30 to workout – commitment and dedication, right there!!

    Name: Cote Designs
    Where you call home: Aiken, South Carolina
    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The elegant and understated charm of each event.

    Name: Dannon K. Collard
    Where you call home: Charleston, SC
    Favorite part of a wedding day? Everything! I feel like I’m part of the family the moment I walk in the door. I get to hear the bridal party reminisce on the good ole days, see the bride read the letter from her groom, watch the mother of the bride help her daughter into her dress… it’s so emotional, and I thank God everyday that I get to be a part of it!

    Name: Ever Thine Events
    Where you call home: Augusta, GA
    How I got into weddings: I was always a lover of antique and vintage things. I rented vintage for my wedding three years ago and I became enamored with the idea. I started collecting and renting pieces out of my garage. From that point it was just a slow evolution from the rentals to what now is a full service styling/planning/floral design company!

    Name: Green Bee Floral Designs
    Where you call home: Winston-Salem, NC
    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Great outdoor wedding weather! We squeeze a little more warm weather out down here… which means more tea-sippin’, fan-waving, biscuit eat’n, outdoor wedding goodness!

    Name: I Do I Do! Wedding Planning
    Where you call home: Birmingham, AL
    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? I love all the personal details we incorporate into weddings here – the custom monograms, special paper details – I love it all. I also think, in the South, the guest experience is very important. Southern hospitality is of utmost importance to our couples.

    Name: Jacqueline Dallimore Photography
    Where you call home: New Orleans, LA
    Favorite part of a wedding day? My favorite part of the wedding day is the bride and groom’s first dance. I often find myself tearing up behind the camera!

    Name: Jeff Hall Photo
    Where you call home: Greenville, SC
    How I got into weddings: I’m really a documentary photographer at heart. I gravitate towards authentic images that have meaning. Weddings offer me the opportunity to make something that means something to my clients and their families. Wedding photos are priceless by nature, and having the chance to capture something both momentary and invaluable is thrilling as a person and a photographer.

    Name: Jen Dillender Photography
    Where you call home: Austin, TX
    How I got into weddings: There are three things my husband and I love: Jesus, each other, and (being true Southerners) college football. Shortly after we got married, I wanted to pursue photography, but being newlyweds, we couldn’t afford a nice camera. My husband and my brother ended up making a friendly bet on a football game (Texas A&M vs. Baylor), and if our beloved Aggies won, my brother would buy us the camera I’d been eyeing. If Baylor won, we’d name our firstborn after him. As luck would have it, the Aggies pulled out a victory, I had the camera a week later, and the rest is history!

    Check out all of our favorite vendors in the Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory! I also wanted to mention that we’re working particularly hard to expand some of our areas of slim pickings – namely, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia. If you would like to recommend someone (or nominate yourself!) for any of these states, please email emily at southernweddings.com!
