I’m so excited to have our talented spring intern, Meg, on the blog today to share this sweet film with y’all! Take it away, Meg! -Lisa

Goodness, I just watched this video four times in a row and still want more! Chandler and Gavin are such a dream, and this highlights film from their Seaside, Florida wedding proves how much they love their friends, family, the South, and–most importantly–each other. Not only was Seaside a stunning setting for their big day, it was also the place where Gavin popped the question on a family vacation! Their video by our Blue Ribbon Vendor Bride Film captures such memorable scenes from the warm, sandy beach ceremony, all the way to the energetic, fun-filled reception (complete with an 80s band!). Now, if y’all don’t mind, I’m going to go click play a few more times!

What are three words you would use to describe your wedding? Elegant, unforgettable, fun
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: Taking sunset photos on the beach. It gave us a few minutes to ourselves to reflect on the ceremony and cocktail hour, and then get ready to let loose with all of our family and friends! The sunset hit just as we were finishing up the photos, and turned the sky the most stunning pink. And, we had two visitors in the water…big stingrays were right at the water’s edge!
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Hospitality. Since all of our friends and family were traveling to come to the wedding, we hosted a casual come-and-go at my parents’ home Thursday night, a small rehearsal brunch for our wedding party and close family and friends Friday morning, a welcome bonfire on Friday night, and wedding celebrations on Saturday!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? For us, the entire weekend spent with family and friends was the best part of the whole wedding. We felt so loved, and celebrating with them is something Gavin and I will cherish for our whole lives. I’d also say that our band was unbelievable–no one in our crowd expected a wild, costumed, 80s band to show up, but everyone is still talking about how much fun they had!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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!!
