What Do You Love about Black Southern Belle Brides

I love that Black Southern Belle Brides always find a way to honor their family. Whether ita��s a memory table honoring those who have passed, or their grandmothera��s jewelry, or by using their great-grandmothera��s cake recipe for the grooma��s cake. Family is always so important to the Black Southern Belle, but especially on their wedding day.

What Do You Love about Black Southern Belle Brides

Black Southern Belle Brides have strong family ties and the wedding is a community celebration with parents, godparents, family and friends all playing a significant role in the couple’s union.

What Do You Love about the South

Food and Hospitality. I moved to Charlotte in 2008, from New York City by way of Detroit (my hometown) and there were so many dishes I’d never tried or even heard of before moving to the south; pimento cheese, shrimp and grits and barbecue brisket. Now these dishes have gone mainstream and I completely understand why. There is so much soul and love that goes into traditional southern dishes. I’m hooked!

The people! Charlotte is the epitome of southern hospitality and it has been a wonderful journey building my business in the Queen City. The wedding and special events industry in Charlotte is like family!

What Do You Love about Black Southern Belle Brides:

They are extremely intentional about creating a wedding experience that makes every guest feel enveloped in their love story, and is served well on their day. There’s nothing like Southern Hospitality on one of the most special days in a couple’s life. So special!

What Do You Love about the South:

Food and family! The dinner table is more than a place to be filled physically–we can also connect with the people who matter most and enjoy life’s sweetest moments with them! Southern food is used as a vehicle to foster meaningful relationships, and the meals are delicious too–win-win.
