There’s something very romantic about the South, isn’t there? The thick heat of summer’s haze, the generous shade of a gracious old oak… this place was just made for love. And sometimes, wedding inspiration is just made to be beautiful. We appreciate beauty for beauty’s sake, after all. Thanks to Leslie Hollingsworth and Ginny Au for sending over such sigh-worthy eye candy!

Pink peony perfection.

This gorgeous dress and veil are from the White Dresses Boutique in Huntsville, AL.

Have you taken our 2013 survey yet? Thanks, y’all!

We’ve been celebrating our fifth birthday all week, and though they haven’t been a focus, our advertisers are a huge part of our family and growth! We are so proud to work with such kind and talented people, and we love sharing them with you. Today, I’m introducing you to a few of our new Blue Ribbon Vendors!

Hot Dog! Photo Booth’s name is almost as fun as the images their booth produces — almost. Hot Dog! is based in North Carolina and prides themselves on custom backdrops, props, and print layouts for every event.

As a wedding stylist and creative director, Lindsey Zamora’s job is to “make things beautiful.” I can imagine her loose, natural style makes Texas brides as happy as it makes me!

Loft Photographie is made up of Two Texas girls with two passions – to create beautiful art out of the people and places they photograph, and to bring glory to God while living out purposeful days. Sounds pretty perfect!

Mrs. Vintage Rental Boutique has some of the loveliest, most varied inventory I’ve ever seen — New Orleans brides are lucky to have her!

With a wealth of experience both inside and outside of the wedding world, Premier W.E.D. has a long track record of bringing their motto — “we turn fantasies into memorable realities” — to life. They are based in Nashville.

Robin Lin Photography is based in Chapel Hill, NC and has a clean and polished style. I also love that they pride themselves on enhancing your day and helping out in any way.

Sarah McKenzie has a relaxed, easy, friendly style that makes sense when I read more about her goal for each wedding: to get to know her brides and grooms on a personal level. She is based in Houston, Texas, but loves traveling for destination weddings.

Sperry Tents truly speak for themselves — those snapping flags, dramatic peaks, and gorgeous wooden poles say more than I ever could! They have offices based in Virginia and South Carolina but travel all over the Southeast.

On their wedding days, all of Stephanie Parker’s clients have one thing in common: a flawless, natural, gorgeous look. She is based in Richmond, VA!

Alabama brides are so lucky to have White Dresses Boutique! This adorable shop is located near Huntsville and carries fabulous lines like Marchesa, Hailey Paige, and Anna Maier.

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!

    Shopping for a gown can be one of the best experiences during wedding planning, or one of the worst. There are, of course, many factors that play into how your experience pans out, but the bridal salon you choose obviously plays a huge role. That is just one reason why we’re so thrilled to introduce y’all — and especially our Alabama brides — to one very special boutique.

    I adore the story of White Dresses Boutique, so here it is from the horse’s mouth:

    In the 1930s, a petite woman named Madie Ella Leonard opened a fine dress store in a tiny Alabama town. Convinced that mixing the fashions of the Big Apple with service drenched in Southern charm would create a shopping destination people would have to revisit, Madie purchased her first few lines of inventory and stocked the shelves with finery that would make any Southern lady swoon. Though met with a lot of people who told her tiny Alabama couldn’t handle couture, Madie went on to operate one of the most influential dress shops in Alabama – dressing Southern women for over 40 years.

    Madie, who is now 108, passed her love of fashion down to her nieces – who she treated like the daughters she never had. With the same love of couture and desire to bring something new and innovative to the bridal market in Huntsville, Madie’s nieces, along with their mom, opened White Dresses. White Dresses blends couture bridal gowns with service drowned in Southern charm to create a bridal shopping experience unlike any other. The boutique offers Southern brides a carefully curated selection of exclusive couture gowns along with a personal experience that ensures each bride has the attention needed to select the perfect white dress for her special day.

    White Dresses carries bridal gown designers that aren’t found in any other Southern bridal boutique. A few of their gorgeous lines include Marchesa, Hayley Paige, Sareh Nouri, Elihav Sasson, Stephanie Allin, Anne Maier-Ulla Maija, Jesus Peiro, and Rosa Clará. They also carry Elihav Sasson, and are the only salon in the United States to do so! We adore their clean, romantic, fashion-forward style!

    White Dresses is located in Huntsville, Alabama, and you can learn much more about them on their website. I’d also encourage you to check out their Blue Ribbon Vendor listing — their interview is so fun! Last but certainly not least, keep an eye on their trunk show schedule. In March, they are welcoming Blush by JLM Couture and Intuzuri to town!

    How was your wedding dress shopping experience? How many salons did you visit? Let us know in the comments!

      This wonderful post sent me in search of more information on Madie Ella Leonard and I noticed that she passed away on Monday: http://www.cullmantimes.com/obituaries/x1633481512/Madie-Ella-Martin-Leonard.

      I am so glad that she had a good, long life and inspired her nieces to continue the family business. What a lovely shop!

      I adore this post. The boutique sounds just lovely and the story behind it makes my heart swell up! I would love to be able to take one of my brides shopping here!

      What a charming little background story!!!! I love it! I visited only two dress salons in search for my gown — and revisited the first when the time came to make a decision! :) The One was the first one I tried on that third shopping trip (third time’s a charm!)!!!
