Talented, professional, compassionate vendors are the backbone of every smoothly running wedding day. When you hire people who are great at what they do AND good people to boot, your only job on your wedding day will be to act as a gracious hostess, love your family and friends well, and say “I do.” What a blessing! That’s why we’re passionate about our Blue Ribbon Vendors–because we want y’all to be worrying about those three things, and nothing else. Here are a few we’d love to introduce you to!

Name: Caroline Parrone of Stella Plantation

Where you call home: New Orleans
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The couples are so sweet! It’s always a pleasure to help combine their two personalities to create a celebration that joins their families and represents them as a couple.

Names: MaryClare and Chris Serio of Bride Film
Category: Videography
Where you call home: New Orleans
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Food, music, more food…need we say more? Only at a Southern wedding will you indulge in shrimp and grits, gumbo, AND beignets, and then take your happy tummy out to the streets to dance the night away with the most fabulous jazz band and a drink in hand. Southern weddings have a charm and vibrancy second to none!

Name: Ginger Cook Event & Floral Design
Category: Event Planning and Design
Where you call home: Diamondhead, MS
Favorite part of a wedding day? I have a bunch! But one of my top favorites is seeing the bride’s face when she sees her wedding ceremony and reception for the first time. I absolutely love the moment that she sees her dream wedding come to life.

Name: Hannah Mayson Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Austin, Texas
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Enjoy your day! Trust the details to the people you’ve hired so you can celebrate. Above all, remember that your marriage is so much more important than you wedding!

Name: Heather Kline Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Any small town with a main street, oak trees, front porches with swings, and cold sweet tea!
How I got into weddings: My family and I went on vacation one year, and on the Blue Ridge train ride met this incredible guy with an impressive gear bag of photographic equipment. I was already looking for a creative outlet in my life, and that was the official impetus to begin the journey that began a reawakening of a talent discovered way back in my high school darkroom! A few more classes, some mentoring, and a lot of shutter clicks later, I knew that photographing weddings was it for me. The energy of the day, the emotions and giggles, all kept me on an adrenaline rush that I absolutely love! I love the couples and families I work with, the vendors I meet, and I wouldn’t want to do anything else in the world than what I’m doing now!

Name: Judy Hill of High Cotton
Category: Fashion
Where you call home: Raleigh, North Carolina
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? I love the small details about Southern weddings the most: strings of lights, fragrant Southern flowers, grandma’s recipes on the pie bar, a beau tie bar with colorful bow ties, and the delightfully warm and carefree atmosphere that Southern weddings exude.

Name: Jessica Lynn Hatton Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Lexington, KY
Favorite part of a wedding day? My favorite part of the wedding day is listening to the vows and watching the newlyweds walk down the aisle after they are married and seeing their heavenly smiles.

Name: Justin DeMutiis Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Tampa, Florida
How I got into weddings: I started in high school with a passion for nature and landscape photography and a desire to preserve the most beautiful scenes and moments in a faithful way. My health teacher was also a wedding photographer, and when she saw my passion for photography she took me under her wing and taught me about portraits and weddings!

Name: Sarah Ntouskas of Make It Posh
Category: Event Planning and Design
Where you call home: Mechanicsville, VA
Favorite part of a wedding day? The father-daughter dance. It gets me every time. I am not a crier by nature and can stay dry through the most touching of vows, but it’s all waterworks during the dances. I can’t help but think one day that will be my husband with our girls.

Name: Anna Stouffer of Urban Petals
Category: Floral Design
Where you call home: Greenville, South Carolina
Favorite part of a wedding day? Giving a bride her bouquet, hands down! I absolutely love seeing her expression and often tears of joy!!

    Favorite part of a wedding day? This changes with each wedding I shoot, because over time, I’ve found that my favorite part of a wedding day is the emotional moments that are special to that particular couple. For some, this could mean the first dance or when the bride first puts on her dress.

    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? There are very few events in the South that are more celebrated than a wedding–a grand event that celebrates two families joining together, love on its brightest day, and a couple’s very first moments of forever. In the South, there is a sensitivity that creates a sense of open-armed welcome.

    Name: Tina Rodosta, Verde Beauty
    Category: Beauty
    Where you call home: Baton Rouge and New Orleans, LA
