Fred and Donna Jacob are experts of the wedding industry and have been married for 47 years. Their first magazine publication, Here Comes the Bride, was published in 1991 in Knoxville, Tennessee. This first wedding magazine was 5.5 by 8.5 inches and included monthly timetables and checklists for brides. My, how things have changed….
Thirty years later, The Jacobs now publish Tennessee Weddings by The Pink Bride, a magazine serving the state of Tennessee, with hundreds of local pictures, wedding stories, and planning advice from many of Tennessee’s finest wedding professionals. The Tennessee Weddings by The Pink Bride magazines are complemented by the largest wedding shows in TN and AL (as well as the Southeast), our interactive blog, and our social media efforts – which offer online exposure for our wedding pros, as well as access to an online version of each publication.
Over the past thirty years, the Pink Bride publication has grown to include wedding planning inspiration from Nashville, Chattanooga, Tri-Cities, Memphis, and Knoxville. These issues are printed twice a year.
Focused on personal connections, Fred Jacob began producing wedding shows in 2000. The shows began in Knoxville and have now expanded to two or more per year in Knoxville, Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, the Tri-Cities, Birmingham, AL, & St. Louis, MO.
The Pink Bride works full-time to connect engaged couples with the most qualified wedding pros. Our mission is to encourage and facilitate the best wedding experience possible for all those planning their special day.
We say YES to love!
