It has been so neat to hear from so many of you over the past weeks and months about vendors you think should be added to our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory. I love that it’s a resource y’all can both add to and draw from – either from or for your own wedding! Here are a few more recently added creative partners that we think you should meet:
Marissa Joy is a kind and intuitive photographer, making it easy for her to genuinely portray both intimate and candid moments. Her natural style is elegant, and, combined with the personality of her couples, results in heartfelt and personal work. She shoots primarily in North Carolina, Maryland, and Washington, DC.
Traci’s work is atmospheric and intimate. She has a knack for capturing quiet, unnoticed moments that will be treasured for years to come. Anne Marie Photography is based in New Braunfels, Texas.
Jillian’s designs are just gorgeous to look at, aren’t they? We love the juxtaposition of wild and elegant she achieves with her art for loose arranging and selecting the most beautiful blooms. Mimi Nicole Events is based in South Carolina.
Mint’s work is simply lovely. These two gals have a beautiful and unique way of seeing the world, one that allows them to capture the beauty, intimacy, and love between their couples in a soft and peaceful way. Mint Photography is based in San Antonio.
Francesca and her team’s work is elegant, soft, and sophisticated — just like a Southern belle! We love Pure Luxe’s focus on creating “genuine” weddings — totally in line with the SW manifesto. They are based in South Carolina.
Chloe’s wild and wonderful blooms are the perfect mix of texture, color, and composition. We adore her work!
Supposey Wedding Florals is based in Florida.
Tamara is a sweet and earnest soul, and is about as hardworking as they come. Her flowers are lush and romantic, but we especially adore her passion for nurturing strong marriages as well as beautiful weddings! Tamara Menges Designs is based in Groves, Texas.
We love Abby’s sweet heart and love for what she does, and think it shows in her images! They’re simple and timeless, just like the weddings she most enjoys capturing. Abby Grace Photography is based in Virginia and Washington, DC.
Brittany’s work is polished but natural — she is a genius at making gals look like the most beautiful version of themselves! We can’t decide whether we prefer her gorgeous updos or beautiful waves more, but we know we’d be happy with either on our wedding day. She and her team work throughout the Southeast – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee!
Heidi and the folks at The Dandelion Patch just get it – they have a keen eye for what brides want, and carry a selection of some of the most beautiful stationery and invitations we’ve seen. You won’t regret stopping for a peek at their collection! They have locations in Vienna and Reston Virginia, and in Washington, DC.
As always, if you think there’s a talented vendor we should be introduced to, send me an email! I’d love to hear. In the meantime, you can see all of our Blue Ribbon Vendors (and search by state and category) right here.
