Name: Kristen Kilpatrick

Where you call home: Austin, TX
Favorite part of a wedding day? This changes with each wedding I shoot, because over time, I’ve found that my favorite part of a wedding day is the emotional moments that are special to that particular couple. For some, this could mean the first dance or when the bride first puts on her dress.

Name: Ashli Hernández, Brookside Barn
Category: Venue
Where you call home: Ellisville, MS
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Trust your industry professionals. This is our job, and we do it every weekend! We see really great ideas go off without a hitch and we also see really great ideas fail. So ask us questions, ask our advice, and let us help you. It’s what we’re here for and we’re delighted to do it!

Name: Caroline Lima

Where you call home: Newport News, VA
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The value placed on family.

Name: Amanda Robinson, Sweet Fix
Category: Cakes and Sweets
Where you call home: Richmond, VA
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? We have mountains, beaches, farmland, country, and beautiful cityscapes, all in the South. We truly have something for everyone.

Name: Amy Clarke, The Halcyon Agency

Where you call home: Los Angeles, CA
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Surround yourself with calm people who love you, not family/lifelong friends who stress you out.

Name: Rasberry Greene
Category: Venue
Where you call home: Soso, MS
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? There are very few events in the South that are more celebrated than a wedding–a grand event that celebrates two families joining together, love on its brightest day, and a couple’s very first moments of forever. In the South, there is a sensitivity that creates a sense of open-armed welcome.

Name: Rachael McIntosh
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Asheville, NC
Favorite part of a wedding day? I love when the bride and groom turn around, grab a hold of each other, and walk through their guests for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. All of their nerves have dissipated and they’re overflowing with joy! This is my favorite photograph I take of the day.

Name: Tina Rodosta, Verde Beauty
Category: Beauty
Where you call home: Baton Rouge and New Orleans, LA
Favorite part of a wedding day? The moment that a bride gets butterflies in her stomach while sitting with me to do hair and makeup. You can feel the room change with the emotions; everything gets loud with excitement and then quiet with anticipation.

Name: Proximity Hotel
Category: Venue
Where you call home: Greensboro, NC
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Southern hospitality, beautiful landscapes, and lots of sugar!

Name: Meredith Teasley
Category: Photography
Where you call home: Brentwood, TN…but I’ll always be an Alabama girl at heart!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The warm smiles, the big hugs, and of course, the people! I love that people in the South have a way of preserving family heirlooms and carrying on traditions that make weddings so much more unique and meaningful!

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 Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia. If you would like to recommend someone (or nominate yourself!) for any of these states, please email kristin at southernweddings.com!

    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.
