Edith Meyer Wedding Cakes
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Edith is doing the cake for my upcoming wedding this summer, and I really can't wait to work with her. Even in our consultation, she added a real personal touch to my session-- offering to do things in fondant to mimic the woodsy scenery at my wedding or the unique wrapping pattern of my dress. She also works with organic ingredients (some from her cute on-site garden) that are lovely without being mouth-puckeringly too sweet. Her grandmother's red velvet cake and the super moist vanilla creme were fantastic. I think Edith is a great vendor for anyone looking to have that the feel that a real artist worked on your cake. She's like a lower-key Martha Stewart with a bohemian edge.

Erica Gray Beauty Company
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
While I haven't used Erica for my own wedding, she has done my makeup as a bridesmaid and for other big events. She's AMAZINGLY talented, with a real eye for putting on enough makeup to make you feel special without looking clownish and unlike yourself. She can do wonders with hair-- including lovely loose chignons and pretty up-dos incorporating jewelry and flowers. It's nice not to have to deal with separate people for all that. When she was here in New York many of my friends used her for weddings. One of the greatest things about her was also how much we enjoyed spending time with her too-- she's a soothing presence to have around on your big day, while also being hip enough to add that feeling of glamour every girl wants on her wedding day. I wish I could hire her for my wedding. Enjoy her, Austin!
