Our wedding was the best combination of our visions and our vendors' execution. Armed with Pinterest and amazing venue backdrops, I was able to put all of my favorite pieces together and pass them along to our vendors with total confidence that they would deliver. For any Bay Area brides, I would highly recommend any of these vendors, and please contact me with questions!
Mill Valley Flowers
Working with Katie from Mill Valley Flowers was a wonderful experience, and she made my vision come alive in all of our floral pieces. Everything was lush and beautiful, and Katie incorporated all of the ideas I threw at her from Pinterest and her own unique additions. I am so glad that I trusted her as the expert - I was speechless with the end result! Katie was laid back and easy going, she implemented all of the details perfectly and stayed within my budget.
The ladies at Salon DeCota are the best. I had my hair and makeup trial a few days before the wedding, so I got to know a few of the stylists. They are all fun, professional, and easy going. We were able to take over the salon the morning of the wedding and Evet and her crew provided breakfast and mimosas. They created a great environment for us to relax and laugh a little before all of the excitement really began. All of the girls looked gorgeous!
We had a great tasting at SusieCakes in the spring and throughout planning, all of the communication was easy and thorough. I knew from the beginning that I wanted an array of desserts with a special cake for us to cut, and SusieCakes made it happen within my budget. Everything that they provided was delicious and beautiful. We saved half of our little cake for our one year, but we might have to pay SusieCakes a visit for an upgrade next October!
Archival Photo Booth
First of all, I'm never having another party without a photo booth! The photo booth brought everyone out of their shells and set the tone for a fun night. Erin and her crew were wonderful at the wedding and great to work with throughout the year. Archival is very affordable and low maintenance, while providing a complete package, including a special photo album of all of our pictures. Everything was well done and we are so pleased to have all of these memories.
Pride & Joy
Pride & Joy is part of our family - they performed at my step-sister's wedding seven years ago. They are the best band in the Bay Area, they got every single person on the dance floor, and they didn't slow down for the whole night. I was so excited about the opportunity to have a band, and when I knew I could have Pride & Joy, I was ecstatic. They played songs that every generation could dance to, they allowed my crazy friends to get on stage with them, and they were outstanding performers.
We were blessed to have two friends shoot our wedding, which led to lots of crazy antics and very few posed pictures (just the way we like it). River and Christin came up from Los Angeles (and they'll travel anywhere!) and brought so much love and joy to the day. They put Jeff and me, and our wedding party and families, at ease and kept permanent smiles on our faces. They are a wonderful addition to any celebration, and we keep pinching ourselves that they could be at ours!
