Hi! I’m Jennifer Prince. I’m a former science teacher turned writer turned media guru. What I do is what I love… I really enjoy inspiring women and helping to make life easier, and I also have a passion for local businesses. My mom and dad both owned their own businesses (antiques shop and CPA firm, respectively), so entrepreneurial-ship is just in my blood! I cherish being able to combine my love for people with my belief in supporting our neighbors.
I created Hill City Bride in 2010 (wow, time flies!) to be a niche blog to serve as a resource for Lynchburg weddings (and the surrounding areas) while also providing local vendors a venue in which to showcase their work and services. In 2012 I also debuted my wedding magazine and also my women’s magazine. It’s so fun to have a creative outlet while also providing other women a chance to express themselves creatively. I love, love, LOVE it! I also recently added travel and press trips, which is oh so much fun.
I also love my family… I am a wife and mother of three who has lived in the Lynchburg area for over 25 years. Vintage things (did you read that my mom owned an antique shop?), running and thrifting all bring me great joy in addition to playing chauffeur to my kids and cheering them on at games and performances. So fun! I also really relish date nights with my husband… often.
My zest for life and love for people inspired me to start a resource to bring brides-to-be and quality vendors together in an easy, modern way through a fun, upscale resource and idea blog. What started out as a business for me, has turned into so much more. I have enjoyed creating a community of vendors in the Central VA area that I truly can call friends… that has been such a joy for me. I hope that you get to know them through my blog and that you learn to love them just as much as I do. Happy planning!
