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!

    Haven’t booked all of your wedding vendors yet? Our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory is a GREAT place to start, so why not take a peek? To kick your search into high gear, allow us to introduce y’all to a few of our newest finds…

    It’s with great pleasure that we get to introduce Ashley Cakes to y’all, though you might not actually need the introduction: observant readers will have spotted her lovely work in V5! Ashley is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Catherine Marciniak’s approach to photography is “natural and romantic” – sounds like a winning combination to us. She is based in Boca Raton and Charlotte.

    Hiring musical talent is notoriously one of the most angst-ridden wedding decisions (how can you ever really know for sure what they’ll be like at your wedding??), which is why I’m so happy to add EastCoast Entertainment to our Directory. With a full roster of bands, DJs, and musicians, they represent some of the best talent on this side of the country.

    Elisabeth Carol is based in Dallas and takes the loveliest soft, natural light photos that still have a bit of an edge to them.

    Faith Teasley’s sweet and fun personality are reflected in her work — just take a look at her portfolio to see what I mean! She is based in Fayetteville but travels around NC and beyond.

    Feather & Twine has a goal of capturing your wedding with “artistic whimsy and light-filled romance,” and I have to say they hit the nail on the head for a description of their work! They are based in Texas.

    You can search our Directory by state or category to find your new best wedding friend. Happy hunting!

    Vendors, interested in applying? Just fill out this form and Kristin will be in touch!

    Have you taken our 2013 survey yet? Thanks, y’all!

    We’ve been celebrating our fifth birthday all week, and though they haven’t been a focus, our advertisers are a huge part of our family and growth! We are so proud to work with such kind and talented people, and we love sharing them with you. Today, I’m introducing you to a few of our new Blue Ribbon Vendors!

    Hot Dog! Photo Booth’s name is almost as fun as the images their booth produces — almost. Hot Dog! is based in North Carolina and prides themselves on custom backdrops, props, and print layouts for every event.

    As a wedding stylist and creative director, Lindsey Zamora’s job is to “make things beautiful.” I can imagine her loose, natural style makes Texas brides as happy as it makes me!

    Loft Photographie is made up of Two Texas girls with two passions – to create beautiful art out of the people and places they photograph, and to bring glory to God while living out purposeful days. Sounds pretty perfect!

    Mrs. Vintage Rental Boutique has some of the loveliest, most varied inventory I’ve ever seen — New Orleans brides are lucky to have her!

    With a wealth of experience both inside and outside of the wedding world, Premier W.E.D. has a long track record of bringing their motto — “we turn fantasies into memorable realities” — to life. They are based in Nashville.

    Robin Lin Photography is based in Chapel Hill, NC and has a clean and polished style. I also love that they pride themselves on enhancing your day and helping out in any way.

    Sarah McKenzie has a relaxed, easy, friendly style that makes sense when I read more about her goal for each wedding: to get to know her brides and grooms on a personal level. She is based in Houston, Texas, but loves traveling for destination weddings.

    Sperry Tents truly speak for themselves — those snapping flags, dramatic peaks, and gorgeous wooden poles say more than I ever could! They have offices based in Virginia and South Carolina but travel all over the Southeast.

    On their wedding days, all of Stephanie Parker’s clients have one thing in common: a flawless, natural, gorgeous look. She is based in Richmond, VA!

    Alabama brides are so lucky to have White Dresses Boutique! This adorable shop is located near Huntsville and carries fabulous lines like Marchesa, Hailey Paige, and Anna Maier.

    Still on the hunt for your perfect Southern vendors? Check out our whole crop here! Vendors, if you’re interested in applying, please fill out this form and we’ll be in touch!
