Get started booking your dream team, for a stress free and joyful wedding experience!

Trust in the experts...

I know it can be overwhelming to look through a Google search or link hopping on Instagram to try to plan out your wedding vendors. Over the years I have gotten to know SO many wonderful local wedding professionals and hopefully this guide will be a great place for you to start researching and booking your dream team!

The main thing to remember is, prioritize what is important for YOUR WEDDING. For example, if music is your focus rather than florals than book a fun band first! Always inquire with your most desired vendors first! 

Proceed with ease...

Vendor Booking Timeline

Be sure to start the vendor process with a budget and priority list of favorite vendors. Look for fun ways to enhance your wedding experience with extra's like food trucks, an engagement album guestbook, or wedding party gifts. 

welcome party & Rehearsal Dinner

For an untraditional and affordable rehearsal gathering, I always suggest checking with a few local breweries and wineries where you can bring your own picnic, for a casual celebration with your friends and family!
