PREFERRED VENDORS

Finding vendors for your wedding can be super difficult. You want someone talented and experienced who connects with you well (and treats you like a friend before a client). We’ve hosted a fair share of events and have accumulated a list of talented humans that might offer what you’re looking for. While you aren’t required to use any of our recommendations (you do you on YOUR big day!!), we believe they’re the best in the business based on experience and quality. We’re great friends with each of these people and hope you come to be too!
