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!

    It’s really a joy to get to introduce y’all to a new set of Blue Ribbon Vendors each month, because I just know any one of them would be a joy to you if you choose to work together! This time around, we’re introducing you to a few of them through their answers to some of our favorite BRV interview questions. Click through to their listings to find out more about them!

    Name: Alyssa Arlene Events
    Where you call home: Small town Louisiana
    Why you do what you do: I want to work hard to prepare for your wedding day so you can work hard to prepare for your life together.

    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
    Where you call home: Greensboro, North Carolina
    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!

    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.
