Platinum Weddings by Kerrie
Kerrie is a must have!! I hired Kerrie to do month of coordination for my wedding in June, and she did an incredible job making my day the best day of my life. Kerrie is energetic, organized, responsive, creative, and down to earth. She is someone who is an instant friend, and someone to confide in. I contacted Kerrie about 8 months before my wedding, and it was the best decison I could have made. I recommend you contact her as soon as possible in the wedding planning process, as she has a ton of amazing vendors she can recommend for you to contact for everything from flowers, to photogs, to transportation. She knows her stuff, and it is always more comforting to contact vendors recommended from a expert source. Kerrie will help and guide you every step of the way during your engagement. Even though she was my "month of" coordinator, she made sure I knew that anything I needed along the way, she was there to help. There were many times when I needed some advise on where to look for something, and she was right there to suggest 3 different places I could go. She is very quick via email and phone, which is a huge indication of her dedication to her clients. That really impressed me, and still to this day is something I admire in vendors. I would highly recommend Kerrie and her services to anyone and everyone. It really is important to have someone there on your big day, as there is just not enough time to handle the details on your own, and you need to be able to relax and enjoy the journey. My wedding day went flawless, and was incredible due to Kerrie. You wont be dissapointed, she's a genuis!!

The Treasured Petal
Kristin from the Treasured Petal is truly a floral godess! She has an eye for deisgn, and is so creative she really knows how to pull together a gorgeous wedding. I had met with Kristin at a loal coffee shop, and immediately loved her sweet personality and creative vision. One of the things that really made Kristin stand out is that she sent me a detailed proposal, even included her own hand drawings of what she was invisioning. She also included pictures of specific flowers, since I really do not know much about flowers, let alone recognize all the different names. She was also very cooperative and helpful when I had to do some changes and cut backs to my proposal. She worked with me and found ways to make what I wanted fit within my budget. I was excited to see how it came out on my final day....and I was blown away with how incredible it all looked. She hand picks the most gorgeous, colorful, lush, and stunning flowers you have ever seen. She puts so much thought and love into each of her creations, I feel so lucky to have her on my team. It was stunning, and I am still getting complements on them. I cant wait to get my pictures back so I can post them! I would highly recommend Kristin-- she is wonderful!

Carly did our engagement shoot, and it was such a blast! She is a fun and creative person to work with, and she made the day perfect for us. She is very responsive, the first day I contacted her so got back to me within hours. We also were in a hurry to get our pictures back for our save the date magnets, and Carly was so flexible and was able to get our pictures back to us within days! She was able to send us all of our images as well as a DVD with the re-touches. I dont know any other photographer that could have done this, she really went out of her way to make sure we were happy. We loved our engagement shots, and were so happy we found Carly. Here is a link to our photos on her blog: http://carlydaniel.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2009-04-02T19%3A21%3A00-07%3A00&max-results=5

Brides by Michelle
Michelle is the BEST BEST BEST!! I was looking for a great make-up artist with a really good sense of style, and she was perfect. Michelle is really sweet and fun, and she is absolutely amazing at creating gorgeous makeup. I had her do myself, 4 of my bridesmaids, and 2 moms, and she was able to get everyone done quickly. She is accomodating and a wonderful person to work with. She has worked with lots of celebrities doing TV shows, and is now back into bridal makeup. Lucky me!! Her fake lash application is perfect, I couldnt even feel them the whole day and I even wore them the next day to our brunch. I highly recommend you call her for a trial, you will not be dissapointed!

Heidelberg Pastry Shop
Our cake turned out great! We did a square 3 tiered all white fondant cake, and Claus and his team were even able to add our custom monogram to the middle tier. I turned out just like our picture, and I was very pleased with the variety of flavors they have. Great taste, and great service. We also get a free small cake on our 1 year anniversary. So yummy!

wedding alterations by Mahtab
Mahtab was great. She is quick, and does high quality work on wedding dresses. She made my bustle, took in the bust and waist areas for me, and also added some custom beading I wanted onto my dress. It all turned out great, and she helped me create my dream dress. She used to be a wedding dress designer so she has tons of experience, but now does only alterations. She runs her business out of her home on strictly referral basis, and is very busy. Make sure you book early with her, especially if your wedding is anytime from April-September.

Iva Lee's Catering
Amazing company to work with! From the very first day I contacted them until the late night of my wedding day, they have been a delight to work with. Lisa Wagoner is the absolute BEST, pays close attention to detail and is always 100% on top of everything. They provide a full service catering, bar, and even rentals! I had my wedding at a private estate, so I needed to bring in everything--food, plates, chairs, tables, bar, ect. Iva Lees took care of all of this for me, through just one vendor. I highly recommend going with a caterer that offers this service, as Lisa was able to ensure that I had all the rentals I needed to support my catering and bar needs. It was a big order to fill, and the Iva Lees team was there every step of the way to ensure my night was a sucess. Our appetizers were amazing (people are still commenting about it to me), dinner was great and we had no complaints. I highly recommend Lisa and her team to anyone looking for a hassle free and flawless wedding. This was by far one of my best vendor choices, and it made my wedding day perfect!!
