They are a very special bunch and we love them so. These fine folks all have full page advertisements in the new issue. Because we work so, so hard to make sure every advertisement is displayed next to relevant and visually complentary editorial content, we thought we’d show you the full spread for each full-page advertiser so you can see what we mean.

First up: Storkie! See those beautiful teals, pinks, and blues? All perfectly within our color palette for this issue, making us pleased as punch to have the fine folks at Storkie on the inside front cover. Storkie.com is home to a wide array of stationery designs, ranging from the classic to the fun. You can see a few of my favorites here, here, and here!

Next we have photographer Camille Deann. We thought Camille’s elegant and refined style (and elegant and refined ad!) was a perfect match for my etiquette column. Camille is based just outside of Atlanta, but is happy to travel to wherever your wedding might be located. She also wrote a sweet post about her ad on her blog here. :)

Mike Steelman is a great example of the collaborative process we go through with our sponsors. We went back and forth for days, trying to decide on, between our office and Mike’s, the perfect image to set off his brand. We finally settled on this stunning tree, and I have to say, I think it was a great choice — everyone who sees Mike’s ad is wowed. Mike is based in California but is looking forward to booking some Southern weddings!

Next we have J. Malahy Photography. Josh chose to run the same image as he did in V2, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled! Doesn’t it look perfect sandwiched in between the pages of our color story? Josh is based in Memphis and Atlanta but happy to travel to wherever your wedding might take him! You can check out his site here and blog here.

The darker colors of Cunningham Photo Artists’ ad fit right in next to the opening page of our “Sweet Love” feature. Drea and Casey are based in Charlotte but, as they say, “have camera, will travel!” You can visit their site here and their blog here!

We chose to put photographer Christine Tremoulet’s ad across from the opening page of our “Rockabilly Romance” feature for two main reasons: the bright red of the vintage truck in our shoot perfectly complemented the vintage car in Christine’s photograph, and both Christine and our shoot are based in Texas! Christine is a fabulous destination wedding and boudoir photographer, and you can view her work here and here.

Perez Photography is another one of our dynamite Texas sponsors. We love love love husband and wife team Cesar and Tanya and know you will, too. Check out their site here and blog here, and keep your eyes peeled for their big branding overhaul reveal soon!

It’s a very close call, but I have to say, Paul and Mecheal Johnson might win for my personal favorite ad in V3. It’s just so dreamy, and perfectly reflects their soft, love-and-light-filled style. Plus, it looks so fabulous next to the “Choose Your Own Southern Wedding” spread! The Johnsons are based in Florida but have traveled around the country shooting weddings. You can view their site here and blog here!

Kelly Hornberger’s ad is another that’s striking in its simplicity. LOVE the photo she chose, and love her graphic signature in the bright citron. Clean and modern but warm, just like her photography style. You can see more of her work on her site here and blog here!

Rounding out our photography sponsors, we have Tiffany of Lucky Photography. If you’re looking for a true Southern talent, Tiffany’s your girl! She works throughout Alabama and also shoots child and family portraits. (Just thought I’d toss that out there for those readers who’ve stuck around after the wedding!) You can view her site here and blog here.

Last but certainly not least, we have Rae and Wes Leytham. A husband and wife photography duo based in Florida, they might have the honor of being SW’s longest-running supporters. We love them for that, and also because of their fabulous talent behind the lens. View their site here and their blog here! I must add, also, that their ad looks like it was made to follow Kristin and Kincaid’s wedding. Gorgeous!

If you can believe it, we’ve already had a few of our ad slots snapped up for the next issue, even though it isn’t slated to drop until next fall! If you think you’d like to join us now that you’ve seen what care we take in management and placement of our sponsors, just email Katharine and she’ll talk things through with you. We’d love to have you! Once again, a huge “thanks, y’all!” to ALL of our sponsors from the SW ladies!

In the spirit of celebration, we thought we’d introduce a few more of our lovely sponsors.  For those readers in the midst of intense wedding planning, we can’t recommend looking at our featured vendors highly or often enough.  We believe in what they do and know you (and they!) would be lucky to team up to create a beautiful wedding day.  Be sure to take a look at the “Previously” section, below, for even more reviews!

We truly can’t say enough good things about David Murray Weddings.  David and his staff’s talent for capturing editorial details as well as the tender, emotional, hilarious, and beautiful moments in a wedding day is beyond impressive.  The word “timeless” comes to mind.  They shoot mainly in Atlanta, Boston, and Kennebunkport, but would be delighted to travel for your big day.  Be sure to check out more of their work on their site here and their blog here!

Completely baffled by the photographer search process?  We hear ya.  Enter Cake & Pictures.  Their site features wedding photography guides for 50 US cities, as well as several international locations.  They’ve done a great job curating their lists, meaning you’ll be sure to find someone that will make you smile on your wedding day.  And since you’ll likely be asked to smile quite often, that’s definitely a good thing! Check out their site here and their blog here.

Studio by Carmen’s crisp, saturated images will appeal to many of our modern brides, I have no doubt.  Carmen and her husband work as a team, crafting photographs that reflect your personality and their love for their work.  Our more adventurous readers should make sure to check out their “boudoir marathons,” too.  You can check out more of their photos on their site here and blog here!

Bottle Your Brand offers eleven different sizes of labels to choose from, and all are customizable!  Their seamless system makes checking out super simple, and, if you use code FREESHIP, shipping is free (duh)!  We think their range of label styles, from preppy to classic to funky, offers something for every Southern bride.  Check out their site here and their blog here!

From the minute Katherine joined the SW sponsor family, she won us over with her sweet personality, quick email response time, and fun branding.  We’re sure all Katherine Miller Events brides feel the same way!  Katherine is an ace at navigating the Charleston wedding market, infusing every event with charming details, fresh ideas, and plenty of style.  Check out her site here and recent weddings here!

Another huge thank you to all of our advertisers!  Happy Friday, readers!

P.S. Want to get in on the action?  Email Katharine for a media kit!

To start your weekend off right, we thought we’d introduce a few more of our lovely sponsors.  For those readers in the midst of intense wedding planning, we can’t recommend looking at our featured vendors highly or often enough.  We believe in what they do and know you (and they!) would be lucky to team up to create a beautiful wedding day.  Be sure to take a look at the “Previously” section, below, for even more reviews!

Sakura is Japanese for cherry blossom, and the bloom’s delicate, whimsical, and mesmerizing qualities are what Sakura Photo’s Lee aims to capture in her images.  Lee is based in Dallas and Miami, but would be delighted to travel to document your wedding or engagement.  You can check out recent work on her blog here or her website here!

With the plethora of calligraphers to choose from these days, it’s still easy to instantly recognize Laura Hooper’s precise, girlish script.  Perhaps best known for her often-imititated, never-duplicated whimsical custom maps, she’d also be happy to work with you on an invitation or a tote.  You can check out her three tiers of styles here and her blog here!

I was thrilled when I first stumbled across Wedding Paper Divas, because it was the first time I felt like there were gorgeous paper options available that didn’t require your first born and your left arm in payment.  Whether your style is modern or traditional, whether you’re looking for wedding invitations, bridal shower invitations, save the date postcards (so cute!), programs, or menus, you’ll find something to love on their site.  Bonus!  They also offer free proofs and free returns.  Check out Wedding Paper Divas’ website and their blog, too

I’m pretty much in awe of what Kristy Rice can create with a simple paint brush.  The images below show the fullness of her talent: from watercolor-from-life to finished invitation, she can do it all.  Kristy and the girls at Momental Designs love working up something custom for their couples, or you can choose from their wide variety of established designs.  Also, it should be noted, Kristy is one of the loveliest people you’ll have the pleasure of meeting in the wedding industry.  You can check out her site here, her blog here, her current projects here, and her Twitter here!

Asheville Event Co is a full service event planning and consulting company based in (you guessed it!) Asheville, NC.  Possibly because they live in one of the most beautiful areas around, they’re dedicated to promoting green practices in their work.  Becca and Melissa are also extremely well networked — when we needed a bouquet stat for an Asheville photo shoot last month, they immediately knew where to send us!  You can check out more of their work on their site here and their blog here.

Another huge thank you to all of our advertisers!  Happy Friday, lovely readers!

    The colors in the top 3 images look so dynamic all together (beach, cherry blossom, ring/flower shot). Great photos with colors that pop!

    Love the picture with the ring on the flower! Great idea, gorgeus shot!

    I love Kristy Rice’s artwork – it is stunning…I also agree about Wedding Paper Divas, they have some great invitations and stationery. You can easily spend hundreds of dollars or more on stationery, but with WPD you can still find something you like without spending your whole wedding budget!
