When you work for a wedding magazine, family and friends often come out of the woodwork when they get engaged to ask for planning tips and vendor recommendations. It’s one of my favorite things about my job! That said, while I pride myself in my knowledge of wedding vendors across the South, I turn to our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory time and time again to check out specific locations or services that I may not recall off the top of my head. When you head to the BRV, rest assured knowing that these are the exact same folks the SW gals would personally recommend if we met up over coffee to celebrate your engagement! Here are a few recent additions that we’d love for you to get to know:

Name: Be Light Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Birmingham, AL
Favorite Southern city? Charleston, South Carolina. There is nothing dreamier than whimsical rows of window boxes and colorful architecture. Charleston embodies Southern hospitality and you just can’t help but feel happy walking its streets. We would definitely live there in a heartbeat.

Name: Belles Fleurs Designs
Category: Floral Design
Where you call home: Franklin, TN
How I got into weddings: Flowers have been my passion for many years. I worked in retail floral design and knew I wanted to pursue my own business in wedding floral and event design someday. Once my children were old enough to move out of the house, I decided to take the leap, and started Belles Fleurs Designs shortly afterward.

Name: Dillon Photo
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Jupiter, FL
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The amazing backdrops, like wide blue oceans and moss-covered oak trees! But also, the warm smiles, open hearts, and true love I witness among my couples.

Name: Exchange Vintage Rentals
Category: Rentals
Where you call home: Cullmann, AL
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Soak in every moment. Leave the details to your wedding team and enjoy your most beautiful day!

Name: Handspun Cinema
Category: Videography
Where you call home: Richmond, VA
Favorite part of a wedding day? Can we say every part?? If I had to choose, I would say that the post-ceremony time for the bride and groom can’t be beat–there is so much joy shared between the brand new husband and wife, and it is magical to witness. Josh’s favorite part? The grand exit. Though our part of their journey is coming to a close, their journey is just beginning–and it’s usually a very sparkling start.

Name: Leslie Alford-Mims House
Category: Venue
Where you call home: Holly Springs, NC
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Stay focused on what the day is about. Something is bound to go wrong or not according to plan. Stay calm and hooked into one another and the meaning behind the vows you are making. You’ll be more relaxed and enjoy the day to the fullest.

Name: Lindsay Bishop Events
Category: Event Planning and Design
Where you call home: Charleston, SC
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Southern hospitality! I love helping brides be the Hostess with the Mostest, making sure that all of their guests feel well taken care of and valued. The food is a close second. Southern weddings always have the most delicious food!

Name: LowCountry Catering
Category: Catering
Where you call home: Atlanta, GA
Favorite part of a wedding day? Right after the bride goes down the aisle. I love seeing the look on the groom’s face, and the sweet moment between the bride, groom, and father of the bride.

Name: Montage Palmetto Bluff
Category: Venue
Where you call home: Bluffton, SC
Early bird or night owl? Early bird–the sunrises at Palmetto Bluff are some of the most spectacular in the world.

Name: Stephanie Brazzle Photography
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Dallas, TX
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? I would say Southern weddings are extra sweet in every way. The beautiful backdrops, the Southern mom who is always so sweet and polite, the big bridal parties, and my gosh, the food!

    The ads in our print editions aren’t an afterthought, and they’re not clumped together like so much filler to be flipped quickly through. They are exquisite peeks into companies that can help make your wedding day and newlywed life beautiful, and memorable, and meaningful. If you’ve never seen an issue of our magazine, I promise you, in this way (and many others!), we are like no one else on the market. (And goodness – if you haven’t seen an issue of our magazine, what are you waiting for??)

    We’re so grateful for the print sponsors we had the pleasure of working with on V6, and are excited to link to them here!

    Earthmuse Photography captures the magic and joy of their clients’ wedding days unobtrusively, honestly, and joyfully. We love the contemporary, fresh style and sleek elegance of their work!

    Studio 222

    The team at Blush by Brandee Gaar knows that details matter because they create the atmosphere of your wedding — one that’s informed at every step by your love story and the story you want to tell your guests about the life you’re embarking on. Florida brides, take a peek!

    Our darling Blue Ribbon Vendor Elaine Palladino also hails from the great state of Florida. Her work is full of light, love, and pure, unabashed fun, capturing everything as it unfolds on your wedding day.

    Another Blue Ribbon Vendor, Heba Salama Photography, takes images that are vibrant and colorful, and filled with true emotion always. She’s based in NC.

    Julie Paisley’s images are sweet and happy and wonderfully pretty, and the experience as her client is pretty much the same, from what we can gather – happy and sweet and affirming! Tennessee brides, take a peek!

    We still have spots open for V7, and we would love to have YOU join the Southern Weddings sponsor family! This is not an issue you want to miss, so be in touch with Marissa as quick as butter melting on a biscuit!

      Name: Ashlee Virginia Events
      Where you call home: Virginia, but we are constantly in South Carolina and Florida!
      How I got into weddings: I founded AVE in 2009 after working as a wedding planner at a well-known Virginia venue. One of the blessings of being in the DC area is that you have access to every type of venue imaginable, and I wanted to design events at all of them! I took a leap of faith and have been blessed with wonderful brides and grooms that believe in me.

      Name: Hannah Mayo Photography
      Where you call home: Palm Beach, Florida
      Best piece of advice for brides and grooms? Remember that this is about your love, first and foremost. Infuse the day with your personalities but make sure it all comes down to building a future together with your soul mate.

      Name: Kate Foley Designs
      Where you call home: Ft. Worth
      How I got into weddings: After studying flowers and interior design in college, my best friend asked me to be a bridesmaid and design the flowers for her wedding. I fell in love with wedding flower designs and 15 years later, I still love what I do!

      Name: Krystal Kast Photographers
      Where you call home: Chapel Hill, North Carolina
      Dream travel destination? Corsica, France, or a cycling trip around Sicily

      Name: Legacy Farms
      Where you call home: Tennessee
      Favorite thing about weddings in the South? How sugar-sweet the guests are! There aren’t many weddings in which hearts aren’t being blessed and cornbread isn’t part of the bread basket.

      Name: Llorente Design
      Where you call home: Miami, Florida
      Favorite part of a wedding day? The bride and groom’s first dance. I always cry.

      Name: O.Henry Hotel

      Things you’d write home to your Momma about: O.Henry Hotel was hand-selected to be a member of the “Southern Living” Hotel Collection and is also a AAA four diamond hotel.

      Name: Poppy Lane Design
      Where you call home: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
      Favorite part of a wedding day? The happiest moment is the bride’s face when she sees her bouquet for the first time. To us, it’s equal to the groom seeing her for the first time.

      Name: Rachel May Photography
      Where you call home: Madison County, Virginia
      Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The sweet Southern hospitality. The care and love of every detail for each guest. I also love the tradition and how each family treasures them; it’s not done as a routine but as a gift passed down.

      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!
