Without fail, one of the first things a person who’s seeing our magazine for the first time says is, “the ads are so beautiful!” Really! As the editorial arm of this enterprise, I shed a small tear inside whenever I hear this (kidding!), but I think this phenomenon speaks to the quality of our sponsors and the work we do with them internally to create ads that showcase their businesses in the most beautiful way. In case you haven’t ordered your copy of V6 yet, here’s an intro to five of these fabulous companies!

George Street Photo & Video is a team of talented photographers dedicated to photojournalism – the art of capturing the natural beauty of emotional moments. Instead of a single photographer handling all aspects of the client experience, George Street’s artists are backed by a support staff that ensures your photographer’s focus is squarely on getting to know you, and then capturing your wedding in a way that makes you 100% thrilled.

Kendall Poole Ellis is like a tall glass of sweet tea – truly refreshing! Her events are elegant, expertly planned, and run like a well-oiled and oh-so-lovely machine. Mississippi brides, take a peek at all she has to offer!

Laura Helm of Ashton Events has one of the sweetest hearts we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, and I’m sure her brides so appreciate her conscientious and heartfelt leadership before and on their wedding days! Florida brides, take note of this lovely Blue Ribbon Vendor!

The sweet ladies of Bellissima of Salisbury are at the helm of one of the Southeast’s marquee bridal salons! Their lines include Sassi Holford, Kelly Faetanini, Two by Rosa Clara, Angel Rivera, and Steven Birnbaum. Learn more about their shop here!

    If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably in agreement that beautiful photos that accurately capture the story of your wedding are a priority. There are so many ways to go about making that happen, and we’re happy to present a unique one today! George Street Photo & Video is a team of talented photographers dedicated to photojournalism – the art of capturing the natural beauty of emotional moments. Instead of a single photographer handling all aspects of the client experience, George Street’s artists are backed by a support staff that ensures your photographer’s focus is squarely on getting to know you, and then capturing your wedding in a way that makes you 100% thrilled.

    Their team is stopping by today to offer some tips for engagement photos – and we couldn’t resist adding in our own two cents, too!

    Follow your interests: Do you and your sweetheart share a love for wine tasting? Are you die-hard hockey fans? Whatever your common bond may be, use those hobbies and interests to your advantage in your engagement session. If that means roaming the trails of a winery or going head to head in a makeshift hockey match, the end result will be creative, while still reflecting who you are as a pair.
    SW says: Unique details are the best! Just remember to get some classic, simple photos for your formal announcement, too, if that’s important to you.

    Venture off the beaten path: Sure, your local botanical garden or city park is filled with beautiful scenery. Some of the most creative photos, however, are those captured in spots you wouldn’t expect. So, don’t be afraid to explore and embrace your adventurous side when scouting photo locations. Who knows? The faded mural you pass on your walk to work or the antique barn in your grandparents’ backyard could wind up being a hidden gem!
    SW says: Make sure to choose comfortable shoes! Even if you’re set on high heels, bring along a lightweight or foldable pair of flats to help you move quickly from one location to another. And don’t forget bug spray if you’re heading for a field or forest!

    Try a new twist on an old idea: By now, we’ve all seen many different takes on the ‘save the date’ engagement photo. If you’re hoping to use your e-session as an opportunity to create your save the date, try putting a unique spin on the idea. Tying the knot in the fall? Toss the cardboard signs to the side and paint your date on mini pumpkins or matching coffee cups!
    SW says: If possible, choose your save the date design before you take your photos – that way, you’ll have a better idea of whether the ideal photo for your chosen design is a horizontal or a vertical; if it requires a lot of “negative space” at the top or bottom; or if just one photo or multiple, coordinating photos are required.

    Step outside of your comfort zone: Let’s face it — we’ve all dreamed about having the style and confidence of a supermodel in front of the camera. But realistically, it’s normal to feel shy or uneasy when you’re the subject of the photo session. Since this session is gearing you up for the main event, why not throw caution to the wind and step outside of your comfort zone? For instance, if you and your fiancé love old movies, coordinate a vintage-inspired engagement session, complete with period attire and props!
    SW says: Even if you try a bold set-up or theme, we recommend wearing your hair in a favorite and familiar style – that way, you’ll know which of your angles look best, and you won’t spend time fidgeting or adjusting it!

    George Street Photo & Video’s packages start at $1,500, and all of their packages include free digital negatives. For more information, head to their website to see all they have to offer!

      Our Blue Ribbon Vendors are some of the best in the South — of that there’s no question. And by best, we don’t just mean that they excel at their chosen craft, whether it be photography or planning (though they do), but that each is a kind, patient, creative individual who is just bursting to help you make a meaningful beginning to your married life. Please say hello to a few of our newest additions, including several wonderful venues!

      Barrington Hill is a private equestrian estate in Florida that has opened their doors for select weddings! Their gorgeous oaks and manor house are the perfect setting for happy nuptials.

      CJ’s Off the Square in Franklin, TN provides the best of both worlds — a gorgeous garden venue, and a talented, big-hearted full planning team.

      George Street Photo is a talented, passionate group of photographers in Texas who specialize in photojournalistic coverage of your wedding day.

      Christi, Lindsay, and Veda make up the Atlanta-based team of Godwink Brides, and all three specialize in natural light photography.

      I’m so happy to introduce Grey Snail Press to you today, because J created the invitations for my dear friend Jackie, who is getting married this weekend! I love her casual cursive style.

      I love that the work of Huz from Kreative Angle manages to be both dramatic and hearfelt at the same time. He is based in Houston.

      RiverOaks Charleston specializes in “event setting and story telling” (by the river and under the oaks, no less), and they do it with an talented planning and floral team that can handle “everything but the dress.”

      We recently had the pleasure of working with Raleigh-based Twenty-One Films on a behind-the-scenes film for V6, and I can say that they are as delightful and talented in person as you’d guess from their online presence!

      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!
