Things you’d write home to your Momma about: Being a Blue Ribbon Vendor is such a privilege! Being featured on a variety of other wedding blogs/magazines is also a tremendous joy- but shh, don’t tell: SW is my favorite!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The coziness that always seeps in.
Favorite part of a wedding day? The first dance, hands down. The bride and groom have said their sweet & solemn vows, and are walking into a room created by months of forethought with their closest friends and family. They now have their own private moment to pause and revel in what just took place. Nothing compares to observing those quiet whispers on the dance floor.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Focus on the reason for the wedding: the celebration of marriage! When your decision-making skills start to wane, take a deep breath and daydream for a bit.
