True South featured in WNC Magazine!

We have been so busy this spring and summer! Sorry we haven’t kept everyone up to date with what we are up to!  We have had some really great weddings this year. Extraordinary cool couples, amazing new venues, and as always, truly delicious food and inspired service.

We (really, the amazing Chris Butler!) have also been busy promoting True South! We have added a couple of new locations for retail availability, 12 Bones South AND the Hickory Nut Gap Farm’s store out in Fairview.  So, if you have a hankering, go get you some!  We are also featured in this month’s WNC Magazine. That particular article, “25 Reasons Our Food Scene Rocks,” (pp. 54-65, we are on pp. 64-65)  is not included on the magazine’s website, so go get a copy! The photography is gorgeous and we could not be more proud!

And look for us on  Asheville Indie Weddings soon! We are super excited to be doing a photo shoot for them next week down in the River Arts District! Happy Summer everyone!

Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award 2013

Thanks Wedding Wire!


The WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards® 2013 recognizes the top local Wedding Professionals that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards® are awarded solely based on the reviews from over 1.2 million newlyweds. Awards are determined by a combination of four factors: overall rating (quality), total number of reviews (quantity), review performance from 2012 (recency), and consistency of reviews from year to year (consistency). This year’s recipients represent the top 5% of WeddingWire’s vendor community, across all service categories and all regions throughout the US, Canada and abroad.

Volunteering with Studio Wed Asheville

Happy New Year! We have enjoyed some down time with our friends and family and are now getting back into planning, networking, and setting goals for 2013! One of our goals…BLOG MORE!

Back in December, we joined Studio Wed Asheville in a group volunteer project at the Veteran’s Restoration Quarters. As some of you may remember, our good friend Stephanie arranged a great donation to them on Veteran’s Day. It was so much fun to go back and work with the kitchen staff in preparing lunch for the residents! An inspiring group of men, old and young, who have generously served our country here and abroad. I can’t wait to go back!

It is amazing how spending a day giving your time and expecting nothing in return can make you look at the world with a different view. In the wedding business, we are often busy, busy planning and executing and don’t stop to appreciate everything that we have and how lucky we are to be doing what we are doing! Thank you to all of our vendor friends and family!
