Favorite Vendor List

0075_michaelandlauren
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. When it comes time to start choosing your vendors…you might realize that choosing the person you want to marry ends up being the easiest part of this whole wedding thing. So..lets say you go to google and you type in Wedding Cakes and over 100 websites come up. How will you ever choose? It seems like a daunting task.

Wether you are choosing a photographer or a caterer or a DJ…there are tons to choose from. Now a days a guy can go out and buy a laptop, download some music, and purchase some big fancy speakers. He then comes home, comes up with a business name, and starts a facebook page. Next thing you know he starts booking weddings and calling himself a DJ. (I’m sorry if these offends anyone but you are NOT a DJ.) A DJ is someone who knows how to keep guests entertained, how to keep the flow of the reception running smooth, and knows what to play and when. Same goes for photographer… A person can go buy a fancy looking camera, a lens or two, start a facebook page, shoot some photos of their neighbors dog…and next thing you know they are shooting weddings. (Again, I’m not trying to offend anyone…but you are not a wedding photographer.) A wedding photographer has insurance, backup equipment, knowledge and education from classes or workshops, experience, and much more. This is one of the most important days of your life…don’t leave it in the hands of an unexperienced person.

Below are vendors that we have worked with and trust that they will do an amazing job for your wedding day! Trust us…we have seen some REALLY bad vendors. Dj’s that go out and smoke leaving their booth unmanned, DJ’s that didn’t have or know of a song to play during the bouquet toss (really dude? have you heard of Beyonce?)…Oh man…we could tell you some pretty scary stories. And…we’ve even heard stories from couples that booked photographers where the photographer showed up to their wedding day and had forgotten their memory card at home. Wait??? What? They forgot their memory CARD? You mean they only have one? Oh. my. So trust us…it’s worth it to do your research and make your investment into someone you can trust.  The decisions you make will decide on what type of wedding day experience you have…and it will also decide on what you have to show for your wedding day memories…you know..that is, if your photographer remembers their memory card. ;o)
