Hill City Bride | Virginia Wedding Blog » wedding, DIY and travel blog for brides


Jennifer Prince by Izzy HudginsHi! I’m Jennifer Prince, and I adore Virginia weddings.

I’m a former science teacher turned writer turned media guru. What I do is what I love… I enjoy inspiring women and helping make life easier, and I 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 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 Virginia wedding blog to serve as a resource for Lynchburg weddings (and surrounding areas) while providing local vendors a venue in which to showcase their work and services. In 2012 I debuted my wedding magazine and women’s magazine. It’s fun to have a creative outlet while providing other women a chance to express themselves creatively. I LOVE it! I recently added travel and press trips, which is so much fun.

I also love my family!

I am a wife and mother of three who has lived in the Lynchburg Virginia area for over 25 years. Vintage things (did you read that my mom owned an antique shop?), kittens 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 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 wedding 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 for your own Virginia wedding!
