BLACK-OWNED WEDDING BUSINESSES TO FOLLOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA — AND SUPPORT
Here’s a list of some talented creatives and powerhouses behind black-owned wedding businesses to follow on social media — and support! From Instagram to TikTok and beyond, they’re creating content that inspires, brings joy, and creates thoughtful conversation.
Owner and baker Fen is the hands behind the edible works of art at MonAnnie Cakes, and her husband Segun is her partner in the business — while also serving as an intensive care doctor. This multi-talented duo creates magic together while finding great joy in the fine details! Their Instagram is full of gorgeous goodies that are too sweet to miss!
Here’s the mini-dress that launches a thousand trends — and we can’t get enough of it!
Balloon installs are still one of the hottest wedding trends and Opulent Couture Balloons has some of the most fun and stunning installs we’ve ever seen! Follow them and check out weddings they’ve been tagged in for some truly gorgeous wedding inspiration!
Sisters Leah, Lauren, and Callie are the inspired trio behind the artistry of The Wild Mother. Their business is truly a family affair! They are known for their romantic and interesting floral designs. Give them a follow on Instagram to see their beautiful work.
In addition to their designs, they also consistently provide insights and resources to help their followers participate in more mindful citizenship of the world. Whether it is addressing hard topics or encouraging other wedding pros to actively participate in making a difference, these women are inspiring change at every level.
Here is an important video that explains one of their most recent outreach efforts through their work — with an important message for all of us to take in and take action on.
These flowers are part of their Send Flowers to Greenwood program that was spoken about in the video and showcasing how art is activism.
Michael Harris is not just a talented makeup and beauty artist our industry, he’s a coach and source of inspiration for other wedding vendors.
From makeup to brand strategy and entrepreneurship tips, @mikeymakeup does it all!
MLB owner Marci has an Instagram feed full of the most beautiful imagery in the entire wedding industry — and a heart to support other boss babes working alongside her! We love to see how wedding pros elevate each other!
She shares all of her cool behind-the-scenes experiences, which we love, like when she had The Pioneer Woman looking like the happiest (and most beautiful) mother-of-the-bride here.
Valery Jean-Bart is the owner of Val’s Cheesecakes — a business inspired by his mother. When you follow Val’s Cheesecakes, you get all the scrumptious decadence of the dessert life, but you also get regular videos from Val.
He wears his heart on his sleeve and covers topics from recipes to entrepreneurship topics close to business owners’ hearts.
Linda is the photographer that captured the now famous image of the beautiful newlywed couple standing in solidarity with a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Philadelphia. That photo made its way around the world from Vogue, Essence, CNN and more, but it doesn’t stop there. Her speciality is capturing a striking couple image that says so much!
Bariangela and Maliyah are the dynamic duo behind Rolled 4 Ever Ice Cream. They founded the company after a spring break trip introduced them to rolled ice cream — and they decided to bring it to their hometown of Nashville. Even the pandemic couldn’t keep them down — in fact, their business thrived as they brought this luxury item straight to the public.
From special events to fun-loving weddings, these business women are bringing delicious inspiration to the wedding and event industry!
Flawless Weddings + Events is another amazing family affair made up of a mother/daughter/cousin team! This team can do it all with wedding planner Tracey, floral designer Falynn, and coordinator Denise.
